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.

For Some Reason, Archie Is Not Taking This Photo With His Phone

I love comic strips that were published on December 25th...because sometimes they were not published. That means that some newspapers that carried certain strips did not produce an issue for Christmas Day, giving their employees the day off. And that means, therefore, that some readers never saw the 12/25 edition of their favorite strip. The current trend in publishing full runs of classic newspaper strips allows us to see it all, including the rare Christmas editions. This example is a lot of fun, getting the Archie gang (and an unnoticed) visitor together for a very appropriate December 25th gathering and greeting.
