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.

Mickey's Creature Feature

We need more monsters as we Countdown To Halloween 2022. So let's turn to Mickey Mouse! Among the invited guests to the Hollywood debut of his latest movie in Walt Disney's Mickey's Gala Premiere (1933) are some movie stars who just happen to be movie monsters. These caricatures, like all the caricatures in the short, are designed by Joe Grant. The legendary Disney artist was a staff artist at the Los Angeles Record, drawing Hollywood caricatures at the time when his art attracted Walt attention, and he signed Joe to create the movie-star designs for Mickey's Gala Premiere. They couldn't leave out the monsters, could they?
