Special Sub-Topic: 'Wizard Of Oz' Colors
|What color are the slippers given to Dorothy after her house lands on the Wicked Witch?|
silver. Ruby slippers were used in the movie because the bright, glittery color made them stand out. In the book, Dorothy was given the wicked witch's silver slippers.
|In Oz, good witches always wear what color? |
white. Good witches, Glinda of the South, and the Good Witch of the North, always wore white. It's how you knew they were good! The pink Glinda persona is strictly in the movie--no pink bubbles in the book. Sorry!
|Dorothy follows a brick road in the book, also, but was it yellow? |
y. Yes, it was yellow brick. If you missed this question, it's been way too long since you read "The Wizard of Oz"!
|What color is worn by the Munchkins?|
blue. The Munchkins all wore blue. Their houses were blue, also. Remember the Munchkin men who welcomed Dorothy to Oz?
|Dorothy wears a checked gingham dress on her journey to find the Wizard. What color is it?|
blue and white. Yes, it was blue and white. The Munchkins believed the blue checks were worn to honor them, and that the white checks signified that Dorothy was a good witch.
