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.

It's the Great Pumpkin Carol Book, Charlie Brown

In honor of the date, October 27, 1966,  on which It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown debuted, here's a vintage Halloween artifact for our Countdown to October 31st.  Though this unique item (actually designed to be a deluxe greeting card) is not a direct tie-in to the classic Peanuts TV special, it might as well be. First issued circa 1965 , this Hallmark-produced Peanuts Book of Pumpkin Carols was reissued with different art and in a variety of styles over the years, indicating its popularity was strong across the decades—undoubtedly buoyed by the annual airing of the beloved animated special.
