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.

Off To See The Witch, The Wicked Witch Of Oz

Regular visitors to Tulgey Wood know about some of the premiums and offers associated with the little known Off To See the Wizard television series that ran on ABC during the 1967-68 season. One classic Oz character was rarely seen on the TV show itself, though she did appear in some of the merchandise.  In honor of Halloween, let us honor the Wicked Witch of the West with this rare Rub-On-type "Magic Picture Kit" premium that was offered Free! in "specially marked packages" of Jiffy Pop as a tie-in with the Chuck Jones-produced TV show. Four different scenes were offered, including the witchy one pictured here. It's all part of Tulgey Wood's participation in the Countdown to Halloween 2016 blogathon.
