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.

Bedknobs, Broomsticks, Halloween Time—Their Lots Have Got To Combine

Tonight, October 15th, 2018, Turner Classic Movies is showcasing Bedknobs and Broomsticks (1971) as part of its Treasures From the Disney Vault series. Among its many cinematic delights are the songs composed by those Disney greats, Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman. At the time of the film's release the Disney record division created a mobile that record shops could fly high to alert record purchasers of the Sherman songs on Disney's two labels, Disneyland and Vista, the latter being the prestige label which released the film's original soundtrack album. To discover more of the magic behind this enchanting musical fantasy, please see the article I wrote for, A Witch's Brew of a perfect Movie: 13 Bewitching Facts About Bedknobs and Broomsticks.  And be sure and check out all the haunted houses giving out the best candy this spooky season at Countdown to Halloween 2018. There are over 100 blogs participating in this trick-or-treat time blogathon so be sure and drop by each one.
