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.

A Dragon! A Dragon! I Swear I Saw A Dragon

As mentioned earlier, the D23 website is throwing a Fanniversary celebrating Epcot at 35. When Epcot (or EPCOT Center as it was originally called) opened on October 1, 1982, one of the most popular elements to emerge was Figment from Journey Into Imagination. This delightful dragon has ever since been a fan favorite. If you've ever wondered why Figment wears that yellow-and-red sweater, it's because Kodak, the original sponsor of the attraction, wanted their signature colors to be incorporated into the character. Does Figment fit into our Countdown to Halloween for 2017? Of course--he is a monster of sorts, being a dragon.
