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.

The Lights Of Hollywood

For the past few nights, Hollywood has been wondering why the famous Hollywood sign has been lit for the first time in years.(Surprise: It was for a movie shoot.) It is the 90th anniversary of the iconic sign this year, which hasn't been lit since New Year’s Eve of 1999, when sign was aglow for a Millennial light and fireworks show that caused a major (major even for L.A.) traffic jam. For the story behind the world-famous landmark, let's turn to our gal in Hollywood in a "Minnie Mouse in Hollywood" report from issue 18 (December 1969) of Walt Disney Comics Digest. Come in, Minnie!
