Addams in Oz....

Well, not really...but there is a cartoon by Charles Addams from the June 6, 1939 New Yorker magazine that makes me think of Oz. This was prior to the August release date for the MGM film - but could there be a connection?

This electrical creation strikes me as a mix of the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman... maybe with a bit of Tik-Tok tossed in for good measure!

This original artwork is currently available from the Lewis Wayne Gallery on eBay.

That is an interesting Ozzy mix. Some odd things come up when you search for "Electrified Farm 1939". Apparently it was an exhibit in the World's Fair that included the "Wonder Bread Wheat Field"!
