Display for Disney's Return to Oz Characters

Q: I'm a huge fan of Disney's Return to Oz film. I saw the Tik Tok and Tin Man characters from the feature film in a 102 Dalmatians behind-the-scenes attraction at MGM studios in Walt Disney World. As both a fan of the movie and a memorabilia collector, are these characters still being preserved by your studios? Will these characters be making an appearance any time in the future?

A [Dave Smith]: Yes, we are very proud to have a very comprehensive representation of artifacts from Return to Oz, including Dorothy's costume, complete with her ruby slippers, and her lunch pails. We also have the Tin Woodsman, Jack Pumpkinhead and even the Gnome King's ruby slippers. Tik Tok was on display for many years at Disney's Hollywood Studios; Disney archivist Rob Klein is currently restoring him as there are plans to use him in an upcoming Archives exhibit.

Everyday, Disney fans send dozens of questions for Disney Chief Archivist Dave Smith. Here are Dave's answers to your questions. Check back every day for a new post with a new question.
