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.

Halloween Fun Times In McDonaldland

The Countdown to Halloween 2017 continues: Home to such questionable characters as the Hamburgler and Captain Crook and such don't-get-too-close landmarks as Triple Thick Shake Volcano and Filet-O-Fish Lake, McDonaldland is the natural habitat of some Halloween horrors—but in the gentle spirit of this fast-food fantasyland, it's all in silly fun. The McDonald's publication, McDonaldland Fun Times (A magazine Especially for Children) celebrated the spooky season in 1984, with Ronald, Birdie, one version or another of the Hamburger and the Goblins gathered around a glowing jack-o-lantern. A version of the magazine is still being published today. Below is the Halloween issue from 2016. It's a nice publication but wouldn't the times be even more fun if it included the original McDonaldland characters?

Definitely would be better with the old characters! Why don't they capitalize on them??
