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.

Mummy Meets Mark Twain (Well, Not Exactly)

A little known show with a rabid cult following, Hanna-Barbera's The New Adventures of Huckleberry Finn featured live-action Huck, Tom Sawyer and Becky Thatcher in an animated world—where the adventurous trio often met up with monsters. Here, in the comic book based on the TV series (1968-1969), the kids encounter the Mummy. You can see all the adventures of Huck and his pals—and all the monsters they meet—in the new DVD of the show, The New Adventures of Huckleberry Finn: The Complete Series. And come back to Tulgey Wood for more Countdown to Halloween 2016, and you'll see more off Huck (and more monsters, too).
