Dorothy tries to run away from home after the family’s neighbor, Almira Gulch, threatens to euthanize Dorothy’s beloved dog Toto for biting Ms. Gulch. Dorothy flees with Toto to ensure his safety, but after meeting with the kind fortune teller, Professor Marvel, Dorothy returns back to the farm to find that a tornado is approaching her home. Dorothy and her home are sent spinning into the air by the twister. Dorothy awakens after the storm to find that her house has dropped in a strange and colorful new land: Munchkinland in the wonderful Land of Oz. Upon seeing this peculiar, bright and beautiful new world, Dorothy tells her beloved dog, “Toto, I have a feeling we’re not in Kansas anymore.” Thus, Dorothy’s wondrous adventures in the Land of Oz begins.
