On the journey to the Emerald City, Dorothy and Toto are joined by the Scarecrow, who wishes he had a brain. The Cowardly Lion, who seeks courage and Tin Woodman, who seeks for a heart. They face many trials, riddles along their route, but they overcome them, because of the Scarecrow’s good sense, the bravery of the Cowardly Lion and Tin Woodman’s kindness. Finally, they reach the Emerald City, where the Guardian of the Gates give them green-lensed glasses and leads them to the Palace of Oz. Oz grants the favors when the Wicked Witch of the West has been killed.
