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.

50th Anniversary: Bedknobs and Bromsticks

October 7, 1971, saw the premiere of Bedknobs and Broomsticks. This poster-like ad from the back cover of Disney News announces the arrival of this witchy, wondrous musical fantasy. Countdown to Halloween 2021 can't go on without a celebration of this favorite on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of its premiere. Isn't Halloweentime the perfect time to celebrate 50 years of spellbinding special effects, Sherman songs, and the scintillating Angela Lansbury. If you haven't already seen it, click here for the article I wrote for D23 about this witch-crafty classic. And check out my YouTube video about the Sherman Brothers music and more.
