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.

Dorothy And Friends In The Colorful Land Of Oz

I have posted before (such as here) about MGM's animated TV series Off To See the Wizard. The now little-remembered anthology series generated a fair amount of merchandise and give-away premiums, such as this fun mini-coloring book given away free by Curtiss Candy Company, maker of Butterfinger and Baby Ruth candy bars. (Did the candy company sponsor the show when it was running in prime time on ABC in 1967-1968?) Here's a few sample pages from Dorothy Meets the Wizard (click on the images for a larger view), one of three coloring books available.
