A most unusual creature found only in the Land of Oz. Ojo and his companions encounter the Woozy in a fenced off grove of trees in Munchkin Country while they are on their way to the Emerald City. The local farmers had driven him into the grove and fenced him in because he insisted on eating their honeybees. The Woozy is a about the size of a goat and appears to be made from building-block shaped parts covered with a smooth, tough dark blue skin with only three hairs on the very Tip of its tail. It really is good natured, but deludes itself that its growl is very fierce and frightening. The one thing that arouses its ire is the words, Krizzle-Kroo, which make it so mad that its eyes flash fire. Ojo uses this trait of the Woozy to burn a hole in the fence to free it to go with him and his companions on their mission to save Unc Nunkie and Margolotte.

First appears in: The Patchwork Girl of Oz
