- Sir Hokus' true identity, as revealed in The Yellow Knight of Oz, is ignored in his poem.
- The Umbrellaphant's poem indicates that he's Tandy's companion, while in Captain Salt his master is the magician Boglodore. Are we supposed to assume that Boglodore gave him to the young king, or is there more than one Umbrellaphant?
- Rob Roy MacVeigh's illustration for "The Wonderful Land of Oz" shows mostly existing Oz books, but also something called Ding Dong of Oz, showing a bell with eyes on the spine and crediting Reilly & Lee as publishers. There's also a Disney edition of Pinocchio, for some reason. I have to wonder what kind of character Ding Dong would be, and what sort of adventures he would have. Since he's a bell, he might be somehow related to John R. Neill's Nota-Bells, although they wear the bells for hats rather than having their faces on them.
