Wicked Witches Galore!

Witches in Oz are well known, though not always as we think of them. For example, the Wicked Witch of the East is the 1st witch we meet in MGM's 1939 Wizard of Oz (1939). She's not having a great day!!!


Yet in L. Frank Baum's first book, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900), she looks more like this.



In the movie, the Wicked Witch of the West looked like this.


Yet once more, in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (1900), she has a more imposing look, though she ain't green!


There was even a Wicked Witch of the South, though she was only mentioned in passing in Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz (1908) and there are no images of her. I think this witch might do just fine as the Wicked Witch of the South!
