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.

Happy Huey, Dewey And Louie Day

Today marks the 80th anniversary of that terrific trio, Huey, Dewey and Louie. As they made their October 17, 1937, debut not on the movie screen but in the Sunday comics (their "Unca" Donald was the star of the Silly Symphony Sunday comic strip at the time, drawn by the future artist of the Donald Duck strip, which debuted just a few months later in February 1938), it only seems appropriate to feature the ducky triplets on a comic related item. So here's the cover of Walt Disney's Comics and Stories #315, drawn by the masterful Carl Barks. This Halloween-worthy cover was among the last drawn by the great Barks. Under his writing and drawing, the nephews had long since evolved from troublemaking tykes into level-headed adventurers, but they never lost their prankish side, their proclivity for which coming in handy for the spooky season—This issue is cover dated December 1966, meaning it was most likely on the stands for Halloween—and for the Countdown to Halloween 2017. When you are done gazing upon this spooky (to Donald at least) story, waddle on over to to see a new article written by me all about Huey, Dewey and Louie.  Click here for a free view of the article about Donald's nephews.
