A clip from Jim Henson’s unaired pilot for The Wizard of Oz

You ever read ‘The Wizard of Id’? It’s a cartoon strip that appears in over 1,000 newspapers around the world (I used to read it when I was but a wee bairn). It started in 1964 but in 1969, Jim Henson of The Muppet Show and Sesame Street fame put together a pilot for a TV version. Now footage has miraculously escaped onto YouTube – you might recognise a few voices. Enjoy!
