The Best Wizard of Oz Mugs
Coffee Mugs Are Practical Wizard of Oz Collectibles
On August 18, 1939, the New York Times higly praised The Wizard of Oz calling it a movie that left 'youngsters' eyes shining' and that lent a 'quietly amused gleam' to the eyes of the older folk. They called The Wizard of Oz the best film since Snow White.
Starring Judy Judy Garland, Ray Bolger, Jack Haley, Bert Lahr and Frank Morgan, this MGM film is a musical that was based on the 1900 L. Frank Baum book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
The Wizard of Oz won two Academy Awards for Best Song and Best Original Movie Score but lost Best Picture of the Year to the also enduring movie Gone With the Wind. I am sure that no one anticipated the tremendous staying power that this film would have. The Library of Congress would eventually call it the most-watched motion picture in history.
Fans and collectors of The Wizard of Oz are fortunate in having a wide range of top-quality merchandise with which to celebrate this iconic film. Whether you are familiar with The Wizard of Oz from the movie theatre, from watching it every year once a year when it was aired on television as I did or you are a more recent enthusiast, you will enjoy this selection of the most WICKED Wizard of Oz coffee mugs available on-line.
This Vandor "Ding Dong The Wicked Witch is Dead" coffee mug features one of the most popular lines from a a couple of songs in The Wizard of Oz. The song was sang by Glinda, The Munchkins and Dorothy Gale. It was written and composed by E.Y. Harburg and Harold Arlen. The mug is a very attractive cermaic one, holds 14-ounces of your favorite hot beverage and should be hand washed, if you actually plan on using it.
Can A Coffee Mug Be TOO Nice To Use?
When I saw that first mug I could not help but wonder, can a coffee mug be too nice to use? I was definitely thinking, "Yes." Since than I saw a great solution to this problem and that is one collector who buys TWO of the coffee mugs that he loves -- one for display and 'collecting' -- one for every day use and enjoyment.
Can a coffee cup be too nice to use? What do you think?

|Enesco Our Name is Mud by Lorrie Veasey Wicked? Monkey Mug, 4-1/2-Inch|
What a WICKED mug, LOL! This green and purple one is by Our Name is Mud and features the positively WICKED WITCH OF THE WEST. This is quite probably Amazon's most popular The Wizard of Oz mug gaining extra popularity, I expect, from the Broadway musical 'Wicked.'
The front features the wicked witch on her broomstick and the back warns you not to make her call the flying monkeys.

Three more Wizard of Oz mugs for you.

They are all great mugs, I don't think you can pick the wrong one.
