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.

Halloween in September!

If we can have Christmas in July, why not Halloween in September? To start us off on the right Halloween foot of fright, here's a vintage ad for one of those great Aurora monster model kits. But this isn't just any monster—it's the terrifying cyclops from the classic TV series, Lost in Space—and that makes it "REALLY Far out!" Not so coincidentally, today marks the 48th anniversary of the premiere of that science-fantasy odyssey on CBS on September 15, 1965. The cyclops made for one of the best Aurora monster hobby kits (be sure and click on the ad for a larger view) ever released by that classic company. Aftear all, Aurora was "The Official Kit of the TV Show!" The Lost in Space monster also makes for a hard-to-miss warning sign that Halloween is is a certain Halloween blogathon too. Or as the B9 Robot himself might say, "Warning! Warning, Will Robinson!"

 The cyclops originally appeared in the "There Were Giants in The Earth" episode, October 6, 1965

Be sure and "stay tuned" to Tulgey Wood for more info on the upcoming blogathon.
