What's on your mind?
Does anyone know of an edition of this book that has good quality color illustrations? If so, please share details. All I can find is poor quality B&W illustrations. Thanks.
Does anyone know where any of these are? Got any suggestions?
Oz Movies Waiting to Be Found:

“No. 13: Oz” (1962) directed by Harry Smith this one might be impossible to find because it’s wasn’t finished. I read somewhere that the preserved portion was included in his later film No. 16 Oz: The Tin Woodman’s Dream, but don’t know if that exactly right. If so, then I guess I can scratch this one off the list.
“Fantasia...3” (1966) directed by Eloy de la Iglesia 85 mins
“Roman Candles” (1966) directed by John Waters 40 mins When will this be played again? It’s an experimental film, essentially there are three movies played at once with tons of copyright issues.

There are more but that’s it for now. I’d be thrilled watch any of these! Thanks!
I've to depict them as their own human subspecies (the native Ozians, obviously), because it's clear that biology does whatever the heck it wants their. There are monkeys with bird wings. So yeah. I mean I'm doing it with the Wonderlandians, so why not? Granted not to the same extant as them, but still. Meaning the Wonderlandians are gonna be "Homo wonderlandicus" while the Ozians are gonna be "Homo sapiens ozianus" same with the Munchkins (Homo sapiens munchkinus), Winkies (Homo sapiens winkius), Quadlings (Homo sapiens quadlus), and Gillikins (Homo sapiens gillikinus).

Can anyone shed any light on this carving of the "Cowardly Lion"? It appears to be carved from either cherry or rosewood, but is unmarked and unsigned. Thanks!

So like is Oz and the surrounding areas (Nonestica and the Nonestic ocean) on another plane of existence, or in a pocket dimension? So it's like located on Earth, but at the same time, it's not?
How do you think she'd react to someone calling her "cute"?

I'm confused about what type of landmass Oz is. Is it a subcontinent? A super-country? Are the regions states, countries or sub-countries?
Blood doesn't simply "dry up" in your body! It doesn't work like that! And even if it could, you'd be dead!

What bugs me is they never clarify whether these are meant to ethnic groups, or human subspecies.
Ex: Homo munchkinus, or something.
I mean, I guess it depends on the writer.
If water causes her to melt, then she realistically shouldn't have been alive at all, since the human body is 75% water.

Since there are many interpretations of the Nonesticans, my version of the nomes completely divorce themselves from the obvious humanoid look, and much more monstrous.
What do you think?
So it seems like it's meant to be the sequel to The Wizard of Oz. But there are a few continuity issues here.
First, Dorothy is younger.
Second, Aunt Em and Uncle Henry look different (as well as the Cowardly Lion being four-legged instead of anthromoporphic, and I think I remember them changing the Tin Man's appearance slightly too). I know they were all recast but they look nothing like them, except Dorothy, but again, she's younger.
Third, Emerald City seems more made of crystal than emerald this time around.
Fourth, I think I remember them saying something about Ozma's father being in power before the Wizard came, yet this didn't seem to hold true in the prequel, Oz: The Great and Powerful, where, if I recall correctly, the Wicked Witch of the East is in power. No mention of a previous king of Oz, or Mombi, or the Nome King.
Does this film fit into canon?
On that note, what of Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return, is it canon either?

Though I can't tell when they are or who made them, I won't punish anyone for dubious categories that don't make sense unless it is clearly spam. I will try to delete them as they clog the Special:Categories section.

I've just created a new article called "Cellar", which talks about the storm cellar in the book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and the 1939 movie, and the anime series and movie. If you know of any mention of storm cellars in any other adaptation, please feel free to add to it. And if you see a page mentioning a cellar, please add a link to that page.

I noticed the website to keep a list of world wide recordings, I saw no Dutch recordings there, if anyone is interested at all in Dutch audio, here is a link to my website containing the known Dutch audio recordings (not that many, as far as I know these are the only ones): http://kroniekenvanoz.nl/nl-oz-audio/
