FARCE/SPOOF. In this over-the-top spoof, Dorothy refuses to give the Wicked Witch of the West the magical ruby slippers for fear she may be elected to Congress or the White House. After enduring bad Munchkin jokes, Dorothy meets a talking scarecrow who wants a brain so he can write “better” poetry, a Tin Man who would like to have a heart so when his parents reject him he can feel bad, and a Cowardly Lion who would like some courage so he can overcome his fear of zebras. The Wicked Witch tries to stop Dorothy from reaching the Wizard of Odds, but she has ditched her broom for a Dustbuster and her “flying” monkeys have to ride a bus because they get too airsick to fly. When Dorothy and her friends finally meet the Wizard of Odds, they discover he’s just a guy who wears many hats. And then there’s Dorothy’s beloved dog, Toto, who she refuses to believe is deceased. Nonstop laughs!
