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.

Addams Art

1964 was a good year for monsters on TV. That year brought two monster hits—The Munsters on CBS and The Addams Family on ABC. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Addams side of the street, here's a Halloween-worthy cover (published for Halloween 1964, as a matter of fact) of TV Guide, combining a Charles Addams drawing with the live-action version of the characters portrayed by John Astin and Carolyn Jones. The characters shown didn't receive their famous names of Gomez and Morticia until the TV show was created. The family that came to be known as Addams first appeared in The New Yorker in 1938 as cartoons drawn by the comically creepy Addams.
