And now for a word from our sponsor...



I've been hoping one of these would turn up somewhere, and now one's available on YouTube at last. There were a whole bunch of Oz-themed commercials for Crispy Wheats 'n' Raisins back in the day. They didn't make a lot of sense to a diehard Oz fan like me, of course, because the Scarecrow and Tin woodman were eating them. Dorothy, by the way, was played by Geri Reischel, who is better known as Jan Brady. "Wait," I can hear you ask, "did Eve Plumb play Jan?" Not on the variety show! Plumb (wisely) decided not to do that version of the show, so Reischel became the new Jan.

Of course they were eating it. It's just that good. Though honestly, I was more of a Frankenberry kid.
