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.

The Phantom Blot Strikes (And Is Struck) Again

Introduced in the famed Mickey Mouse comic strip by Floyd Gottfredson, the Phantom Blot is literally a shadowy character, but that shady status works against him when he shadows Chief O'Hara in this one-page gag drawn by Paul Murry. This shrouded night-stalker is a perfect addition to our Countdown to Halloween 2021. This one-pager is from The Phantom Blot #4. Read more about it here. Also, pictured here: Artist and Disney historian Dean Brinkerhoff's excellent drawing of the Blot, created for his Inktober art project. Please check out Dean's Instagram account to see his Inktober art.
