Gwig

The Sorcerer of the Mangaboos. His clothes are bright yellow and in place of hair he has thorns like those on rose bushes. The appearance of the Wizard of Oz in this land of cold and calculating vegatable people is immediately assessed by Gwig as a threat to the power of his position, and his reaction is to suppress the Wizard of Oz by stopping his breathing. The Wizard's response is equally rapid, as he slices Gwig down the middle. This does not present a great loss to the Mangaboos, as they have merely to plant him in the ground and he will sprout new seedlings from which new sorcerers will grow.

First appears in: Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz
