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.

Minnie Goes Hollywood

Following up on yesterday's post about Hollywood Mickey, here's a look at Mickey's gal pal turned glam puss in "Minnie Mouse in Hollywood." This charming and informative feature ran in most issues of Walt Disney Comics Digest (published by Gold Key) from Issue # 17 (October 1969) through the final issue, # 57, published in February 1976 (though Minnie's movieland report doesn't actually appear in that final issue). Topics covered included such moviemaking crafts and crafters as Set Designers, Sound Effects, Make Up and Stunt Artists and such Tinsel Town landmarks as Griffith Observatory and the Hollywood Boulvard Walk of Fame, to name but a few. Enjoy this example from Walt Disney Comics Digest (published by Gold Key) from Issue # 45 February 1974. I'll post some more of Minnie's Hollywood reports from time to time.
