Professor Marvel's Wagon
Well, well, well! House guests, huh? Ha ha ha ha! And who might you be?
No, no, now don't tell me.
Let's see. You're travelling in disguise. No, that's not right.
You're - you're going on a visit. No, I'm wrong.
You're, you're - running away.
How did you guess?
Ha ha! Professor Marvel never guesses. He knows! Ha ha! Now, why
are you running away?
No, no, now don't tell me. They - they don't understand you at home.
They don't appreciate you.
You want to see other lands, big cities, big mountains, big oceans.
Why, it's just like you could read what was inside of me.
Oh, Toto, that's not polite! We haven't been asked yet.
Ha, ha, ha! He's perfectly welcome! Ha ha! As one dog to another, huh?
Ha ha ha!
Here now, let's see. Where were we?
Oh please, Professor, why can't we go with you and see all the
Crowned Heads of Europe?
Do you know any? Oh, you mean the thing. Yes. Well, I - I never do
anything without consulting my crystal first.
Let's go inside here. We'll - just come along. I'll show you.
That's right. Here, sit right down here. That's it. Ha ha! This - this is the
same genuine, magic,
authentic crystal used by the priests of Isis and Osiris in the dys of the
Pharaohs of Egypt,
in which Cleopatra first saw the approach of Julius Caesar and Mark Antony -
and - and so on and so on.
Now, you - you'd better close your eyes, my child, for a moment - in order
to be better in tune with the infinite.
We - we can't do these things without reaching out into the ....infinite.
yes, that's - that's right. Now you can open them. We'll gaze into the crystal.
Ah, what's this I see?
A house with a picket fence - and a barn with a weather vane of a -
a- running horse.
That's our farm!
Oh, yes. There's - there's - there's a woman. She's - she's wearing a -
a - polka-dot dress.
Her face is careworn.
That's Aunt Em.
Yes. Her - her name is Emily.
That's right. What's she doing?
Well, I - I can't see. Why, she's crying.
Someone has hurt her. Someone has just about broken her heart.
Well, it's - it's someone she loves very much; someone she's been very kind to;
someone she's taken care of in sickness.
I had the measles once - and she stayed right by me every minute.
Uh - huh
What's she doing now?
Yes, she's - what's this? Why, she's putting her hand on her heart!
She's - she's dropping down on the bed!
Oh, no! No!
Well, that's all. The crystal's gone dark.
Oh, you ..... you don't suppose she could really be sick, do you? Oh! Oh, I've
got to go home right away!
But, what's this? I thought you were going along with me!
Oh, no! No, I have to get to her right away! Come on, Toto! Come on!
Goodbye, Professor Marvel, and thanks a lot!
Better get under cover, Sylvester! There's a storm blowin! - a whopper,
to speak in the vernacular of the peasantry!
Poor little kid. I hope she gets home all right.
The Gale Farm
Hurry up and get them horses loose! Find Hickory! Hickory!
Hickory! Doggone it! Hickory.
It's a twister! It's a twister!!
Come on, everybody in the storm cellar!
Henry! Henry! I can't find Dorothy! She's somewhere out in the storm!
Auntie Em! Auntie Em! Auntie Em!
Auntie Em! Come and let me in!
We must be up inside the cyclone!
Oh, Miss Gulch!!
