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.

There’s No Turning Back Now...It's Time for The Countdown To Halloween 2019!

Kindly step all the way in please, and make room for's October 1, and that can only mean it's time for the 2019 Countdown to Halloween! The theme of this annual blogathon this time around is a celebration of the Haunted Mansion at Disneyland Park upon the occasion of its 50th anniversary—as you can see from the 2019 badge that has hitched a ride on this here blog.  So, even though most posts here in Tulgey Wood will not be focusing on the menacing manse, we'll kick things off with some, um, haunting imagery of the Haunted Mansion, by looking back to 2015. That's when three of the main Disney comic book titles ran some merrily macabre art as variant covers. While you consider these dismaying covers, welcome. To regular visitors, good to see you again and I hope you like the treats I toss into your plastic jack-o-lantern bucket because I have decided it's candy I don't want myself. And to new visitors, a special welcome—Tulgey Wood is full of surprises, treats and even a few spooky tricks, so I hope you enjoy the chilling challenge of wandering through the madness. Be sure and visit the other blogs participating in this Halloween sppok-a-thon. These dedicated "crypt keepers" have decorated their front porches with scarecrows and specters so be sure and knock on their doors. (Do be aware that some of these blogs focus on the more horrific side of this holiday, and may also include strong language and mature themes.) Most of all, be sure and stop by throughout this spooky month right through October 31st itself as we Countdown to Halloween 2019 here at Tulgey Wood.
