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.

When Ghosts And Goblins By The Score Ring The Bell Not The Front Door But The Main Titles

For many, Walt Disney's Trick or Treat is a perennial part of the Halloween celebration. But did you know that the opening titles we see on DVD are not the titles the short was originally released with? On YouTube, a YouTuber named Erik has uploaded the original titles with the RKO credits (RKO was Disney's distributor at the time this seasonal short was originally produced), pans between the credits and an animated paint brush as seen in the short itself. This is all from an original Technicolor print. You can discover more about this favorite spooky time cartoon in the D23 article I wrote at this link. It's another frightfully fun (and Disney) way to celebrate our Countdown to Halloween 2019.
