** Dorothy in her dream only accidentally killed the witch, so it most likely wasn't "in cold blood".

* The Talking Tree scene becomes a little more horrifying when you think about it from the standpoint of the trees. They are trapped in place, unable to move, and every now and then, people come along to snatch off pieces of their body and eat them. What makes it even more terrifying is that since apples carry seeds, the trees are forced to watch people steal and eat their BABIES.

** The Witch didn't bring the trees to life. She was only spying on them when she was hiding behind the tree.

** The Witch didn't bring the trees to life. She was only spying on them when she was hiding behind the tree. From the Scarecrow's "I'll show you how to get apples" line, it seems this is the normal way of getting apples in Oz.

** Some parts of the first comment are ''kind of'' correct (taking the slippers from the WWoW, for instance), but nobody, not even Glinda, knew the Wizard of Oz was a conman. Glinda genuinely believed he could get Dorothy back home.

** Are all trees that way, or just some? Only those apple trees and some of the trees in the forest around the Witch's Castle seem to be.

* If the [[OzTheGreatAndPowerful 2013 film]] is apart of the same continuity as this film then it puts the Wicked Witch of the West into a whole new (and very tragic) perspective. To think that the cruel and vindictive Witch was once sweet and gentle Theodora, who was lied to and used by her sister. Also, considering how kind she is and the fact that she already felt bad about killing her, it almost makes you glad that poor sweet Dorothy never learned of the witches past and eventual turn to darkness.

* When I was a kid, I always wondered why the Witch expected Dorothy to surrender just because she demanded it via skywriting. As an adult, I realized that [[EatsShootsAndLeaves the message wasn't "Surrender, Dorothy" but "Surrender Dorothy"]]--she was demanding that the residents of Emerald City hand over the girl, with an implied threat should they not deliver. Dorothy was a stranger to the city, but they all knew how powerful and dangerous the Witch was.

* This troper had a horrible thought, the characters and their Kansas counterparts are all alive and well after Dorothy gets home. Except one. Miss Gulch is nowhere in sight in Kansas. Then this troper realized that the Wicked Witch was Gulch's Oz Counterpart and she's dead. If we go by believing that Oz is real, then she simply got swept up in the tornado and died. However if we believed that Oz was a delusion then odds are Dorothy killed Miss Gulch in cold blood.

** Didn't the Witch cause the trees to come to life(technically just move and speak since trees are already alive)?
