Tulgey Wood is a location in Wonderland. It is mentioned in the poem Jabberwocky as a place where the The Jabberwocky lives, as well as the Jubjub Bird and the Bandersnatch. However, 'Tulgey Wood' is unlikely to have been intended as a place name, as in the original poem neither the T nor the W are capitalised. The word 'tulgey' is used simply as an adjective to describe the wood. It is the Disney '51 animation which first suggests that 'Tulgey Wood' is the name of a place.
And as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!
