“Off to See the Wizard”

  

Description from Ams: Before dvr's & dvd's, special movies were shown on TV only once a year. Wizard of Oz meant Halloween was right around the corner. The moments when Miss Gulch and Auntie Em morph into the Wicked Witch of the West chilled me to the bone. So here is my Lima homage:
A braid sporting Dorothy rescues her flower digging dog from being hauled off on the bike of the rightfully peeved Miss Gulch by running away. After encountering a crystal gazing loner, Dorothy decides she was a little impulsive and returns to the farm house just as it's hit by a side-winding tornado. Things get a little blurry when she suffers a head injury, but she awakes in the middle of candy town, charged with manslaughter. On the advice of the locals and to avoid sisterly revenge, Dorothy high tails it with her new footwear down the golden path, picking up a bird brained guy on her way to see a guru in Emerald city. Despite a harrowing winged abduction, Dorothy cleans up Oz, earning her companions a heart transplant and medal of honor. After a day like that, Dorothy gladly returns back home over the rainbow with new found enthusiasm and perspective that only near disaster brings.
