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.

Welcome To A Christmas Wonderland

Though it may seem a little more mad than merry, this classic piece of art, from the December 25, 1986 issue of Eyes & Ears, the in-house publication for Walt Disney World is a delightful way to usher in Christmas Eve. The art was specially created by friend and Disney artist/historian Russell Schroeder and was published as the cover for both Eyes & Ears and the Studio newsletter, Disney Newsreel. In fact, according to Alice expert Matt Crandell (don't miss his Wonderland blog) his piece was originally published in the Newsreel in 1984.  Hope this elaborate (dig all the characters, including the elusive Dodo, arriving in the background with holiday gifts) and "wonder"ful art helps you go mad for Christmas.
