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.

Trick Or Treat With The Peanuts Gang For UNICEF

October is all about Halloween but it's also Peanuts month. The spectcuarly popular comic strip starring Charlie Brown and Snoopy debuted on October 1, 1950. By coincidence, the Trick or Treat for UNICEF campaign began that same year—and this year, the Peanuts gang are the spokes-characters, tying in with The Peanuts Movie to be released in November (and it's this imminent release of this big-budgeted film that's responsible for many, many tie-ins right now). The cover for the collection box is below. The art is interesting in that it seems some effort has been made to make sure Charlie Brown (costumed as a pirate) and Lucy (dressed as a princess) seem contemporary. It also looks as if Linus (costumed as a Harry Potter-like wizard?) has finally skipped waiting for the Great Pumpkin in favor of "tricks-or-treats." Individuals and groups can participate in this fun Halloween-themed fundraiser for UNICEF, so you can join in with Snoopy and his friends. Details can be found here. This post is part of the Countdown to Halloween 2015...check back throughout October for more frightening frolics.
