Weekly Update: R.I.P. Karl Slover

As many of you surely know, one of the last surviving Munchkins passed away this week. Karl Slover, who just appeared at an Oz event a little over a week ago, died at age 93 on November 15th, 2011. There are now three surviving cast members from the 1939 movie, and they're all Munchkins. Check out these videos of Karl singing his famous acapella rendition of "Off to See the Wizard".

In other news, ABC aired a brand-new episode of "The Middle" that had an Oz theme to it. In the episode, a community theater performance of "The Wizard of Oz" is doing auditions, and there's some jealousy over who gets what part. It was a very funny episode, and the costumes and sets in the production that were shown actually looked awesome I must say! Read more about the episode here.
 Actress Michelle Williams talked to The Los Angeles Times in an interview earlier today about her daughter's visit to the set of "Oz, the Great and Powerful". Read what she had to say about the experience her daughter had on set here.
That's all for now. Have a great weekend!
