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.

Have a Goofy New Year!

To welcome 2014, here's the January 1938 issue of Mickey Mouse Magazine (Issue #28). The headline for this post should probably be something like "Duck! Here Comes The New Year" as it's Donald (not Goofy) who represents the incoming year. Donald pretended to be a baby in at least one on-screen appearance before the cover was created, in Modern Inventions (1937).  However, the inspiration for this infant appearance may have been Officer Duck (1939) which may have been in development if not production at this time. Happy New Year!
