Why have they never seen the WoO??tsk tsk
Bunny: Because they're both very easily scared and we think the witch and the flying monkeys would scare the bejesus out of them.
But it's FUN scared!I love the Wizard of Oz. When I was 12, my best friend and I made a Super8 version of it. Since it was her movie camera, she was Dorothy. I was everything else. Even a flying monkey.
Mine have never seen it either.Yet quite regularly one of them will say:"Ding Dong"To which the appropriate answer is either:a/ Merrily on Highb/ Jelly Apple Pie (which is what I thought the hymn was when I was little and the kids know that)or c/ The Witch Is Dead...at which point the child will say: "Which old witch?" and we have to say: "The Wicked Witch."How does this happen?
LMAO I was wondering if it would have something to do with the monkeys. I forgot about the witch, although to me, she was never very scary.
Just explain to them that there may be some slightly scary parts, but over all the movie is beautiful.(I used to hide behind the couch when the flying monkeys appeared!!)
Just goes to show you how deep popular culture permeates our worlds, doesn't it? The flying monkeys scare the bejesus out of me, too. Still. And I'm fully growed! But you could fast foward past that part, couldn't you? I imagine your girls would LOVE LOVE this movie and all its Dorothiness.
I think this phrase, like the movie, is enormously popular. She probably heard it at school.
Yet channeling the Wicked Witch... look out Graceful, the teen years could be rough!
It must be a comment hard wired into the brain of a female child.That movie scared me.
I love that movie so much! One of my great great great aunts, who has long since passed on, was a little person and she was in the movie. As a kid it was so much fun to look out into the sea of munchkins and try to pick out Great Aunt Ruth!
I always liked the flying monkeys. It was the old lady on the bicycle that turned into the green-faced witch that scared me as a child.Of course, after that, I was on to Frankenstein and vampires and more traditional horror movies...
Wow, I can't believe she pulled that out and hasn't seen the movie. Where do they learn these things then?Too funny!
