You’ve wandered into the topsy-turvy world of Tulgey Wood, the blog of writer and historian Jim Fanning. Tulgey Wood celebrates artistry and creativity (and sometimes just plain madness): movies, animation, TV, books, comics—and of course Disney, lots and lots of true-blue, through-and-through Disney, including D23 and Disney twenty-three Magazine, and Sketches Magazine and the Walt Disney Collectors Society. Tulgey Wood is so fun, fascinating and full of frolicsome photos and facts, it’s scary. So wander through the wonder of it all, and enjoy.

Oz Old And New

Disney's popular new Oz film, Oz The Great and Powerful, is being released to the home entertainment market on Blu-ray today. To celebrate the new Oz here is something old—from the Off To See the Wizard TV series from 1967-1968, inspired in turn by the 1939 MGM classic, The Wizard of Oz. The new film certainly emphasizes the Wizard's roots as a carnival magician, and I like the way the magic-kit premium described in this magazine ad brings things back to magic tricks. Be sure and click on the image to see the whole two-page spread—and stay tuned to Tulgey Wood for more on this mostly forgotten television program in the future.
