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.

Climbing The Treehouse Of Horror

Since 1990, The Simpsons has featured a special episode for Halloween time, the Treehouse of Horror. One of this annual Halloween special's most fun and funniest aspects is the changing of the cereators' names in each episode's credits to add a spooky twist, such as Matt Groening being credited as "Bat" Groening and James L. Brooks as James "Hell" Brooks or even "Chains" "Hell" Brooks, an idea inspired by the EC comic books, which also helped inspire the entire Treehouse of Horror concept. The 24th installment is being aired tonight on FOX; the episode can also be viewed On Demand, if you have access to that service. Starting in 1995, Bongo Comics (publisher of the Simpsons comic books) has published an annual Treehouse of Horror comic. Here's a look at the 2013 cover, issue number 19, featuring those Treehouse of Horror perennials, Kang and Kodos (or at least Bart and Lisa versions thereof).  Hope you enjoyed this post—be sure and come back throughout October for more Countdown to Halloween 2013 fun here at Tulgey Wood.
