Dorothy Gale and her dog, Toto, are swept away in their farmhouse by a tornado to the Land of Oz. She embarks on a journey to the Emerald City to seek the Wizard to help her get back home to her Aunt Em and Uncle Henry in Kansas. On the way, she befriends a Scarecrow who wants a brain, a Tin Man who wants a heart, and a Cowardly Lion who wants courage. The Wicked Witch of the West puts a stop for her to be back in Kansas because she has the ruby slippers, which Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, gave her as her own protection. When she and her friends reach the Emerald City, the Wizard grants her friends' wishes but not her own, so Glinda helps her get back to Kansas.
