She meets Espantapajaros (the Scarecrow), Hombre de Hojalata (The Tin Man), and Leon (Lion). Professor Maravilla, dressed like The Wizard in Baum's silent films, but very young, sings "Do you hear me?" in Spanish, to the tune of "The Jitterbug," and when he appears as the Wizard, he is dressed like the Grand Poloni, with an emerald green turban. The Wizard sends them to retrieve the Witch's broomstick. The witch sings about her sleeping potion to the tune of "Just Call Smarmy" from the Disneyland Cowardly Lion of Oz record.
