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.

Tuff Guy

Spooky the Tuff Little Ghost was the inverse of his fellow Harvey comics star, Casper the Friendly Ghost—equally cute as Casper, Spooky had no use for "friendliness," he wanted nothing more than to scare people (or anything else). Though Spooky often succeeded the joke often was that he ended up scared himself. Here is a ghostly gallery of some classic Spooky covers (like Casper and all the Harvey comic-book stars, the Tuff Little Ghost appeared in a bewildering number of titles). Note the first cover, which is from 1966, features the classic Monsters emerging from the TV (where the Universal Monsters were incredibly popular), in yet another reference to the Monster phenomenon. Spooky's frights will take us one day closer to October 31st as the 2014 Countdown to Halloween scares up some more fright-time fun here at Tulgey Wood.
