Oz in Jeopardy!

For a show with no Oz clues, the June 6 show sure had a lot of Oz! Two clues of interest here, both in the Jeopardy! round. In the category Body Quotes, returning champion Jonathan found the Daily Double under the $1000 card. He bet $1200, and was presented with this clue:

"Wait," I can already hear you say, "that has nothing to do with Oz!" That's what Jonathan found out when he responded, "What is The Wizard of Oz?" What he should have said was, "What is Cyrano de Bergerac?" He lost that $1200, and then went on to lose the game.

Three clues later, in the category Watch Those Rats and Mice, the $400 clue was revealed to be:

Lauren, the challenger on the right, rang in first and correctly responded, "Who are Tom and Jerry?" Since Tom and Jerry recently starred in an Oz production called, appropriately enough, Tom and Jerry & The Wizard of Oz, I figured this clue was appropriate to put here. Lauren, however, did not go on to win the game. And in case you wanted to see Tom and Jerry's Oscar-winning short, here it is!
