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.

Like A Demon Ghost He’d Show His Face Then Hide

Walt Disney's "The Scarecrow of Romney Marsh" is a spooky tale from Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color (Part 1 aired on February 9, 1964, opposite the Beatles US debut on The Ed Sullivan Show). Below is the 45 rpm single of the unforgettable theme song by Terry Gilkyson that helped make this haunting adventure tale so memorable. To discover more about the Scarecrow for our Countdown  to Halloween 2017, take a look as the article I wrote for the D23 website (thats where the image seen below came from, straight from the vaults of the Walt Disney Archives) all about the mysterious midnight rider who sought justice for the poor. by striking terror in the hearts of their oppressors.

Don't go just by this still picture. You had to see him in action. For me as a child, the Scarecrow was chilling and terrifying--yet deliciously so. Disney found just the right balance between scary and intriguing. Our whole family watched "The Scarecrow" in fascination. It was our first introduction to color TV.
