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.

Monster Cereal Mania

As reported on many other blogs, the General Mills ("Big G") Monster Cereals are back in a retro-stled box as a Target exclusive for Halloween 2014. (The standard boxes bear new designs by DC Comics artists.) These monstrous breakfast foods have been feuding since they were introduced in 1971. (Boo Berry was introduced in 1972.) These retro boxes are styled as if from 1979, complete with an illustrative-type child who looks a little too enthusiastic about the "Free Mask" on the back of the box. ( I love how it says, "Fool Your Friends!"—especially as I don't think that mask would really fit on anyone's head.) The boxes this year include a fun story on the side of the box in which the monsters do what they do best: argue about whose cereal is best. You can dig up some more fun-but-frightful facts about the Monster Cereals at Dinosaur Dracula and the official General Mills site. These "super sweet" cereals are all part of the 2014 Countdown to Halloween blogathon.
