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.

Happy Birthday,"Daddy"

In honor of Walt Disney's birth date, December 5, 1901, here is the cover (art by Disney artist Al Dempster) of the biography written by Diane Disney Miller (as told to journalist Pete Martin—who, Diane was forever pointing out, did most of the work and the writing that produced the biography). Diane was of course Walt's daughter, who sadly and all too soon died on November 18. This story of Walt's life, published in 1956, is a fitting tribute to the man who started it all and the daughter who tirelessly reminded the world of the value and legacy of that man. The Walt Disney Family Museum stands as a monument to both dad and daughter. (The ad for the book is from the apparently and unfortunately defunct Disney-centered blog, 2719 Hyperion.)
