Other resources of a more general nature (and of varying levels of idiocy):

(Riley) However by far the best resource I used was:

Then go through the list of widgets at A tour of Tkinter widgets. Grab the right version for your python installation (2.x or 3.x) and unpack it. Run it and you can click the "see code" button for any element. It is a great earning tool, especially since it is all running in Python on your computer, too!
