  1. This is my favorite movie of all times!!! Growing up I could not wait each year for this to come on television! I love so many quotes from the Wizard of Oz! Here is one of my favorites……It is the Wizard talking to the tin man:

    “A heart is not judged by how much you love, but by how much you are loved by others.”

  2. I love that movie! When they are singing “We’re off to see the Wizard” on the path is one of my favorite parts! When my daughter was young she loved that movie as well & we even had her b-day party themed with it! Please enter me!! Stacy

  3. This was always a family favorite when I was little. We used to always drive home to Texas for the holidays from wherever we lived-Maine, California, and Florida. I remember as a little girl wanting to be able to click my heels and say “There’s no place like home” to speed up the trip. This time of year I am always reminded that there truly is no place like home.

  4. Ever since we took my then two-year old daughter to the movie, my favorite scene has been the one where the witch is throwing fireballs down at the Scarecrow, and he’s cringing away from them. I’ll always remember Maya saying, “She wants to play ball. But he doesn’t want to play ball. Why doesn’t he want to play ball with her? Why won’t he play ball????”

  5. If I were the king of the junggggggglllee..(the lions lip quivering)…LOL LOL

  6. When they sing “We’re off to see the wizard” and Dorothy sings “Over the Rainbow”!

  7. I would love to see this! I love when Dorothy sings “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” and the quote “There’s no place like home”.

  8. “There’s no place like home”

    I love that new commercial on TV that follows this line from the movie. I think it is for Pillsbury… ???

  9. I love the lion – he’s such a sweetie. 🙂

    “Put ’em up, put ’em uuuuuuuup!! I’ll fight you with my eyes closed! I’ll fight you with one paw tied behind my back!”

  10. I used to sing Over teh Rainbow to my son every night in the rocking chair. In fact long before Evan was around I used to sing this song every day to myself, I was so gratefull to finaly have an audience.
    “and your little dog tooo!” so scary

  11. My favorite quote is “There’s no place like home”. I LOVE this movie!!!
