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.

Aurora Art (And A Halloween Teaser)

Here's an artful ad—actually a 1960s poster for the window or wall of a hobby store or toy shop—  celebrating some of the classic hobby kits (otherwise known as models) issued by the famed Aurora Plastics Company in the 1960s. Everyone from Zorro (the Disney connection) and Spider-Man (a latter-day Disney connection) to Superman and Superboy are represented. But if you are looking for the acclaimed Aurora monster models, you'll just have to wait until October. In fact, come back all through October for the annual Tulgey Wood celebration of Halloween. Aside from those Aurora versions of the classic Universal Monsters, there will be lots of spooky fun—and once again I'll be participating in the annual Countdown to Halloween blog-a-thon. Be sure and be here in Tulgey Wood on October 1 for all the trick-or-treat tomfoolery.
