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.

Snoopy, A Star Of A Different Stripe

Happy July! To get things started for our Independence Day celebration here's Snoopy, in one of the best of the fine Peanuts Colorforms sets produced in the 1970s. This "Colorforms Theatre" set was released in 1976, so the patriotic designs were incorporated to tie in with the mammoth U.S Bicentennial commemoration. Though you can't tell from the cover pictured here, Charlie Brown's stick-on costume is George Washington. Inside, the theatre set features other members of the Peanuts group as audience members. (If you're a Franklin fan, he's there, along with Peppermint Patty, Marcie and others.) As the Colorforms company put it, you could "create your own Bicentennial spectacular!" Forget fireworks—this is real Fourth of July fun, and best of all, it's quiet so it won't scare your own personal Snoopy.
