Field of Poppies

A field of poppy flowers whose scent causes one to sleep forever. This is a dangerous encounter for Dorothy and her friends as they cross the Munchkin Country on the way to the Emerald City. She and Toto are saved by the Scarecrow and the Tin Woodman, who team up to carry them out of the poppy field. The Cowardly Lion is saved by the Tin Woodman who fashions a truck from wood to carry the Lion, and the Queen of the Field Mice whose subjects pull the truck out of the Field of Poppies.

First appears in: The Wizard of Oz
