** Also Glinda (albeit by combining her with other characters), who in this version sends a snowstorm to rescue Dorothy from the Poppy spell. She also intentionally sends the Ruby Slippers to Dorothy to protect her from the Wicked Witch, and is even able to scare her away (while in [[PlaceOfPower Munchkinland]] at least) simply by telling her off. In the original book, Glinda only appears in one of the last chapters and her skills in magic are only alluded to. (She makes more use of them in the sequels.)

* BeamMeUpScotty, In-Universe: Juliet's famous balcony line from Creator/{{Shakespeare}}'s Theater/RomeoAndJuliet is articulated, "Wherefore art thou, Romeo?". It sounds as if she's asking where is Romeo, rather than why is he Romeo (of the feuding house) instead of some nice boy from a neutral or friendly house. (The actual articulation really means, "Romeo, why are you?")

** When Aunt Em is looking for Dorothy during the tornado. Listen to her voice when she calls out for her one last time before having to retreat into the storm shelter. She sounds absolutely distraught.

This movie has proven so popular that it has had several [[ScreenToStageAdaptation stage adaptations]] written and produced over the years. Professional productions have included [[OnIce a touring ice show in the 1990s]], an AllStarCast concert staging in New York City in 1995, ''another'' N.Y.C. production that ran seasonally at Madison Square Garden later in the decade, and a 2011 London production produced by Creator/AndrewLloydWebber that added several new songs by Lloyd Webber and Creator/TimRice. The 2011 WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry DirectToVideo movie ''Tom and Jerry and The Wizard of Oz'' is a TwiceToldTale version, and got its own follow-up ''Tom and Jerry Return to Oz'' in 2016.

* AscendedExtra: The Witch wasn't truly an "extra" in the original book, but she only appeared in one chapter; her role is expanded greatly in this version.

* InformedAbility, {{Inverted}} as an "Informed Inability": Due to Dorothy's companions not believing in themselves, their actions tend to contrast their words. Though the Scarecrow claims to not have a brain, he's a rather smart character. Though the Tin Man claims to not have a heart, he's shown to be quite a sensitive character (which is unfortunate since though he's a tin man, he cries water instead of oil), and the Cowardly Lion despite claiming what his name would indicate is brave enough to try to protect Dorothy from the witch instead of abandoning his companions. This was taken from the source material, the book.

* InelegantBlubbering: Mostly by the Cowardly Lion. Wizard's doorman does his share too, overlapping with OcularGushers.

* AdaptationalWimp: The Cowardly Lion. In the book he was a self-admitted coward but could hide it by roaring loud enough to intimidate most foes, and when he encountered foes who weren't so easily scared he was perfectly willing to fight for the safety of his friends... even if he was scared to death of doing it. The movie version has gone through severe {{Flandweization}} and has to be dragged kicking and screaming into any situation that looks even remotely scary.

* AmbiguouslyGay: The Cowardly Lion. His rendition of "If I Only Had the Nerve" includes the line "I'm afraid there's no denying/I'm just a ''dandy'' lion" (with a wave of his arm) and he sings much of "If I Were King of the Forest" (not ''Queen''. Not ''Duke''. Not ''Prince''.) with a lispy voice. He is also given a hair bow when he is cleaned up before the audience with the Wizard.
