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.

Don't Be Scared Of Stamps!

Those Universal Monsters really get around--especially when they were showcased on official United States postage stamps. One of the greatest (and most visible) honors ever accorded these iconic screen figures, the United States Postal Service released these spooky stamps in 1997. The USPS offered a complete set of the Classic Movie Monsters releases in this specially designed folder, in order to appeal to both stamp collectors (otherwise known as philatelists) and fans of the frightening film stars. Painted by artist Thomas Blackshear, who has painted a number of other US stamps, these particular stamps feature the creatures that everyone loves to fear.
