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 Hauntings From The Haunted Mansion

It's October 31, and since 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland, let's take a look back at some haunting history. Or is it a look ahead? The 1965 Disneyland Pictorial Guidebook featured a preview of the Haunted Mansion four years before its opening. Prominent in this rarely seen preview is one of the most famous pieces of Disney theme-park art: the painting of a very haunted looking Haunted Mansion by Sam McKim, based on Ken Anderson's 1958 sketch. With this fascinating example of Disney art, we come to the end of our countdown for this year. Happy Halloween 2019!
