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.

More TV Monsters Next Door

As mentioned, both The Addams Family and The Munsters debuted in 1964. These two monster-family comedies are often lumped together but The Munsters differed in that they were actually a traditional sit-com family with everyday values—they just happened to be monsters. And since this series came from Universal the producers were actually able to use copyrighted designs such as the classic famed Karloff Frankenstein monster (square head, neck bolts, etc.). The Munsters inspired much merchandise and below is an example. Happy Golden Anniversary to The Munsters!
