Interesting Questions, Facts, and Information
|The Quadlings of the South are scarlet-colored. They are the subjects of Glinda, the good witch who shows Dorothy how to get home. How are they described in the book?||The 'Quizard of Oz'
A friendly, agreeable people. The Quadlings are probably so happy because they have a kind and beautiful ruler. They make sure that Dorothy, the Tin Woodman, the Lion, the Scarecrow, and, of course, Toto, are well taken-care of on their trip to see Glinda through their country. Thanks for playing my quiz, I hope you had fun! Don't forget: There's no place like home!
|According to the porcelain princess in the porcelain town, who has been broken too many times?||The 'Quizard of Oz'
Mr. Joker. Mr. Joker's a clown who was probably a few camels short of a caravan to begin with. It didn't help that his porcelain shell was very much broken and dented. This becomes very obvious as he recites this rather rude rhyme to Dorothy: 'My lady fair Why do you stare At poor old Mr. Joker? You're quite as stiff And prim as if You'd eaten up a poker!'
|Who are the fearsome creatures whose heads shoot out to destroy all in their path?||The 'Quizard of Oz'
The Hammerheads. Over the hill of the Hammerheads, who are easily defeated when Dorothy summons the Winged Monkeys, lies the porcelain county.
A great head. Each friend saw a different 'Oz'. They were all expecting to see the one that the others had seen. (You'd think that by the fourth one of them, they'd know that each Oz was different?)
|Who is saved from a wildcat by the Woodman after the three friends have traveled a long way and have met the Lion?||The 'Quizard of Oz'
The Queen of Mice. Later on, she and her band save the Lion from a field of deadly poppies!
trees. He alerted them of his presence by giving a loud groan.
|On the yellow brick road, the Scarecrow tells Dorothy his story. What color did he say his eyes were painted?||The 'Quizard of Oz'
Blue. The farmer who painted him chose blue because blue is the color of the Munchkins.
Gray. Aunt Em was supposedly once very pretty, but all of the gray made her somber and serious.
Weaugh, Teaugh, Peaugh. Mombi (along with Jinjur) was also arrested by Glindas army by the end of the book.
Tippetarius. In the end of the book we discover that Tip is accually a girl, and his (or I should say her) real name is Ozma.
Purple. Tip was actually the one to make Jack, but Mombi was the one to bring him to life.
2. Jack's head was made from a carved out pumpkin so naturally his head came off twice.
Knitting needles. The knitting needles came from the girls' hair, and Jinjur's army was in fact all girls.
A sandwich & hardboiled egg. Jinjur was eventually arrested in the end of the book by Glinda's army.
Broom. The Gump tried to fly Jack, Tip, the Scarecrow, the Tinwoodsman, the Sawhorse, and the Wagglebug to Glinda, but accidently ran off course. When they woke up they were in the desert where they found the wishing pills.
Nick Chopper. Nick Chopper was in fact human once, however he eventually cut off all his limbs in chopping accidents and had the tinsmith make him a new body.
Dr. Nikidiks. Chapter 19 is called "Dr. Nikidik's Famous Wishing Pills"

stork. Once she had rescues the scarecrow, the stork had to return to her babies in their nest.
A meat dog. This was after the Lion asked if Toto was stuffed or made of tin.
left leg, right leg, arms, head, torso. Once the tinsmith had replaced all of the woodchopper's body parts, he became known as the Tin Man.
a lighted match. Being made of dried straw, it is natural for even a scarecrow with no brains to be afraid of fire!
Desert. The land of Oz is surrounded by the Great Desert. Anyone that sets foot on this hot sand is burned to death. Not much fun?
Silver. In the book, the witch's shoes were silver. When the movie was made, the shoes were changed to ruby slippers (probably to show up better in Technicolor!)
The Witch of the East. The Wicked Witch of the East had kept the munchkins as her slaves so they were glad to be rid of her!
Kansas. The setting for both the book and the movie is Kansas, a state where they (unfortunately) get many tornadoes. It is one of many midwestern states in what is known as "Tornado Alley".
