I would like to make it clear many of the elements composing this blog are not my own; I do not own any of the images posted on this blog, beyond those noted as being of my replica ruby slippers. All other images, characters, trademarks (etc) are owned and copyright of their respective owner(s). Also, I did not create this blog with the intent to breach any copyright, nor do I imply that I own anything beyond my own opinions included within it. When known, I have done my best to provide proper attribution when possible. This blog is solely meant to amuse, interest, and assist, other fans of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer’s The Wizard of Oz who may have a particular interest in Judy Garland’s ruby slippers, and as such is protected under laws concerning fair use.

MGM’s classic The Wizard of Oz is currently both copyrighted and trademarked by Time Warner, distributed by Warner Bros, and remains, entirely, their property.

Importantly, large portions of this blog rely on research and quotes from The Ruby Slippers of Oz by Rhys Thomas. They are reprinted here with the express permission of the author.

This site exists as nothing but a fan-made creation, in tribute to The Wizard of Oz, Judy Garland, and her fellow cast and crew. I do not, in any way, profit from the creation of this blog, and have done so only to educate and amuse others.

Further, I must say, this site would not be what it is, nor would my efforts have a chance of reaching the level of authenticity I seek, without a great deal of help from several people, both in, and outside, the Oz community. Among them (in no particular order) are Rhys Thomas, John Henson, Randy Struthers, Jeff Legace, and Chris Rocha,  among others. I truly must thank every one of you, and your assistance is most assuredly appreciated!
