TRIVIA: In an October 2000 interview excerpt with Bernd Gmeineder, game designer and original coder Ian Murray-Watson made these interesting comments about the game —

"I think we were a bit in advance of our time, conceptually, though I still think the Dragon32 original of Tanglewood was more fun. The originals usually are. You may also like to know that we wanted to base Tanglewood on some TV cartoon characters from a series in which the late Kenneth Williams did all the voices. I can't remember the name of the series now, but the characters were Mavis - the Fat Fairy; Evil Edna - the Witch (who looked like a TV set); Arthur the caterpillar; The Moog - a dog; Carwash - a very superior cat. They all lived somewhere called D'Oyly Woods. Unfortunately, the cartoon company wanted a ridiculous fee and percentage, so we changed the plot, the characters, the graphics, and the story, and they got their fat percentage of nothing - so much for greed! But in the process, it also lost a lot of humour, which was sad." [Source: Ian Murray-Watson interview excerpt, courtesy of Ami Sector One].

Incidentally, the British TV cartoon series mentioned above that TANGLEWOOD was originally going to be based on was called "Willo the Wisp".
