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.

No Treats From Tricky Donald

On this date in 1952, Walt Disney's Trick or Treat spooked theater audiences for the first time. That year also saw the publication of the comic book adaptation (Donald Duck no. 26) of the animated short. Written (from Ralph Wright's storyboards) and drawn by the legendary Carl Barks, the comic is in itself a classic. Decades later, in 1977, Barks painted a richly detailed oil painting based on his Trick or Treat cover. In addition to the inclusion of Pluto (complete with his own costume), Barks included a ghost. a black cat and some spooky looking bats. All devilish details designed to delight for our Countdown to Halloween 2021. (Be sure and check out the other blogs participating on the blog roll on the right).
