FADE IN -- Title:

For nearly forty years this story has given faithful service to the Young

fashion.

To those of you who have been faithful to it in return

...and to the Young in Heart --- we dedicate this picture.

FADE OUT:

MS -- Dorothy stoops down to Toto -- speaks to him -- then runs down road

She isn't coming yet, Toto. Did she hurt
you? She tried to, didn't she? Come on --

Come on, Toto.

Aunt Em!

AUNT EM
Fifty-seven, fifty-eight --

DOROTHY
Just listen to what Miss Gulch did to Toto!
She --

AUNT EM
Dorothy, please! We're trying to count!
Fifty-eight--

DOROTHY
Oh, but Aunt Em, she hit him over the --

UNCLE HENRY
Don't bother us now, honey -- this old
incubator's gone bad, and we're likely to
lose a lot of our chicks.

DOROTHY
Oh -- oh, the poor little things. Oh, but
Aunt Em, Miss Gulch hit Toto right over the
back with a rake just because she says he
gets in her garden and chases her nasty old
cat every day.

AUNT EM
Seventy -- Dorothy, please!

DOROTHY
Oh, but he doesn't do it every day -- just
once or twice a week. And he can't catch
her old cat, anyway. And now she says she's
gonna get the sheriff, and --

AUNT EM
Dorothy! Dorothy! We're busy!

DOROTHY
Oh -- all right.

MCS - Aunt Em and Uncle Henry taking chicks out of incubator -

UNCLE HENRY
Poor little orphan, and her Miss Gulch
troubles. Gosh all hemlock - you know, she
ought to have somebody to play with.

AUNT EM
I know, but we all got to work out our own
problems, Henry.

UNCLE HENRY
Yes.

AUNT EM
Oh, I hope we got them in time.

UNCLE HENRY
Yes.

It's a lucky thing it wasn't your head.

DOROTHY
Zeke, what am I going to do about Miss
Gulch? Just because Toto chases her old
cat --

ZEKE
Listen, honey, I got them hogs to get in.

HUNK
Now lookit, Dorothy, you ain't using your
head about Miss Gulch. Think you didn't
have any brains at all.

DOROTHY
I have so got brains.

HUNK
Well, why don't you use them? When you come
home, don't go by Miss Gulch's place. Then
Toto won't get in her garden, and you won't
get in no trouble. See?

HICKORY
Oh! Oh, it feels like my joints are rusted.
Listen, Dorothy, don't let Hunk kid you
about Miss Gulch. She's just a poor
sour-faced old maid that -- she ain't got
no heart left. You know, you should have a
little more heart yourself, and have pity
on her.

DOROTHY
Well, gee, I try and have a heart.

HICKORY
Now look, here's something that really has
a heart. This is the best invention I ever
invented.

DOROTHY
This?

HICKORY
Sure. It's to break up winds, so we don't
have no more dust storms. Can you imagine
what it'll mean to this section of the
country? I'll show you. It works perfectly
now. Here's the principle. You see that fan
-- that sends up air currents into the sky.
These air currents -- Oh, stop it!

DOROTHY
Oh!

HICKORY
Who did it? Now wait a minute.

DOROTHY
Hickory!

HICKORY
Now what happened? I'll bet Hunk did that.

you?

She ain't nothing to be afraid of. Have a
little courage, that's all.

DOROTHY
I'm not afraid of her.

pig make a coward out of you?

HICKORY
Look at you, Zeke -- you're just as white --

AUNT EM
Here, here, what's all this jabber-wapping
when there's work to be done? I know three
shiftless farm hands that'll be out of a
job before they know it!

HICKORY
Well, Dorothy was walking along the --

AUNT EM
I saw you tinkering with that contraption,
Hickory. Now, you and Hunk get back to that
wagon!

HICKORY
All right, Mrs. Gale. But some day they're
going to erect a statue to me in this town,
and --

AUNT EM
Well, don't start posing for it now. Here,
here -- can't work on an empty stomach.
Have some crullers.

HUNK
Gosh, Mrs. Gale.

AUNT EM
Just fried.

HICKORY
Thanks.

HUNK
Swell.

ZEKE
You see, Dorothy toppled in with the big
Duroc...

AUNT EM
It's no place for Dorothy about a pig sty!
Now you go feed those hogs before they worry
themselves into anemia!

ZEKE
Yes'am.

DOROTHY
Auntie Em, really -- you know what Miss
Gulch said she was gonna do to Toto? She
said she was gonna --

AUNT EM
Now, Dorothy, dear, stop imagining things.
You always get yourself into a fret over
nothing.

DOROTHY
No --

Now, you just help us out today, and find
yourself a place where you won't get into

There must be. It's not a place you can

away -- behind the moon -- beyond the rain --

DOROTHY
(sings)
Somewhere, over the rainbow, way up high,
There's a land that I heard of once in a
lullaby.
Somewhere, over the rainbow, skies are blue,
And the dreams that you dare to dream really
do....

CS -- Toto by wheel of rake -- listening to song --

DOROTHY
(sings)
...Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind
me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops,
Away above the chimney tops,
That's where you'll find me.
Somewhere, over the rainbow, bluebirds fly.
Birds fly over the rainbow,
Why then -- oh, why can't I?
If happy little bluebirds fly
Beyond the rainbow
Why, oh, why can't I?

mustn't! Auntie Em! Uncle Henry! You won't
let her, will you?

UNCLE HENRY
Of course we won't. Will we, Em?

DOROTHY
Please, Aunt Em, Toto didn't mean to. He
didn't know he was doing anything wrong.
I'm the one that ought to be punished. I
let him go in her garden. You can send me
to bed without supper --

MISS GULCH
If you don't hand over that dog, I'll bring
a damage suit that'll take your whole farm!
There's a law protecting folks against dogs
that bite!

AUNT EM
How would it be if she keeps him tied up?
He's really gentle -- with gentle people,
that is.

MISS GULCH
Well, that's for the Sheriff to decide.
Here's his order allowing me to take him.
Unless you want to go against the law.

UNCLE HENRY

Em, don't let 'em take Toto! Don't let her

SCARECROW
(sings)
Gosh, it would be awful pleasin'
To reason out the reason
For things I can't explain.
Then perhaps I'll deserve you,
And be even worthy erv you
If I only had a brain.

DOROTHY
Wonderful! Why, if our Scarecrow back in
Kansas could do that, the crows'd be scared
to pieces!

SCARECROW
They would?

DOROTHY
Um-hmm.

SCARECROW
Where's Kansas?

DOROTHY
That's where I live. And I want to get back
there so badly I'm going all the way to
Emerald City to get the Wizard of Oz to help
me.

SCARECROW
You're going to see a Wizard?

DOROTHY
Um-hmm.

SCARECROW
Do you think if I went with you this Wizard
would give me some brains?

DOROTHY
I couldn't say. But even if he didn't,
you'd be no worse off than you are now.

SCARECROW
Yes -- that's true.

DOROTHY
But maybe you'd better not. I've got a
witch mad at me, and you might get into
trouble.

SCARECROW
Witch? Huh! I'm not afraid of a witch!
I'm not afraid of anything --- except a
lighted match.

DOROTHY
I don't blame you for that.

SCARECROW
But I'd face a whole box full of them for
the chance of getting some brains. Look --
I won't be any trouble, because I don't eat
a thing -- and I won't try to manage things,
because I can't think. Won't you take me
with you?

Oh, I'll try! Really, I will.

DOROTHY
To Oz?

SCARECROW
To Oz!

BOTH
(sing)
We're off to see the Wizard
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz
We hear he is a whiz of a Wiz
If ever a Wiz there was
If ever oh ever a Wiz there was,
The Wizard of Oz
Is one because
Because, because, because, because, because
Because of the wonderful things he does.
We're off to see the Wizard
The Wonderful Wizard of Oz!
