15.8. What are the Wicked Witch's guards called?

Although not named in The Movie, those tall, green-skinned men she has enslaved to be her guards are the Winkies. This name goes back to the book, as the Winkies are the people who live in the west and are enslaved by the Wicked Witch there as well. Some have speculated that, since the Winkies and the Wicked Witch are both green-skinned and long-nosed in The Movie, the Wicked Witch is herself a Winkie. The Winkies in the book, it should be added, are not tall and green, they're rather ordinary Ozites like the Munchkins.

*GIGGLES MADLY*

A winkie prince and a green witch to rule them. *Dances around*

Oh, yeah. http://www.eskimo.com/~tiktok/ozfaq.html it's a REALLY cool read if you're any way into the Oz realm...Wicked is mentioned just once, when talking of various names for the Wicked Witch of the West. That made me happy, but it's not in the seciton over performances and the like, but I don't think the FAQ has been updated any time after October 2003...in fact it seems it hasn't been updated since 2002. Ah, oh well. I've been reading it since I got home, and I'm rather amused.
