I grew up in a time in which cartoons were only aired on Saturday mornings. And certain movies were an annual event. I looked forward to when The Ten Commandments, Samson and Delilah, Gone With the Wind, and The Wizard of Oz came on t.v.
Gone With the Wind is my favorite. But The Wizard of Oz is a very close second. And not just because of the ruby red slippers.
Now, you can watch any of those movies anytime you want. It isn't a big extravaganza for it to be on t.v. anymore. One thing you can't do is see it in the theatre any ole time.
That's exactly what we did on Easter Sunday. My mom, Lamb, Bear, & I went to see The Wizard of Oz: the Musical.
When the tickets were purchased, we just did not think about it being Easter Sunday. It turned out to be a nice way to spend the day.
It was just as exciting to see it on stage as it was many years ago when it came on one of the broadcast channels.
And, yes, maybe it has *something* to do with the ruby red slippers.
