Set on a Kansas prairie, young Dorothy Gale runs away from home when a busybody neighbor tries to take her precious dog Toto away. A sudden tornado transports Dorothy and Toto to the Wonderful Land of Oz, where she is greeted by Glinda the Good Witch of the North and proclaimed the National Heroine of Munchkinland for inadvertently killing the Wicked Witch of the East. The Wicked Witch of the West descends to retrieve her sister's ruby slippers – but Glinda has already slipped them onto Dorothy's feet. The Wicked Witch departs, vowing eternal vengeance.
