The Best New Wizard of Oz Coffee Mugs

by MugTreasuresByBrenda

Wizard of Oz fans will be tripping over their ruby red slippers to get some of these fantastic Wizard of Oz mugs!

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.

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.

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?

I love the "GOOD WITCH/BAD WITCH" mug. Had received it as a Christmas gift but it got broken. Am desperately trying to replace it.

I actually really liked this <a href="">Self Stirring Mug</a>

emeraldmile on 07/25/2011

I love the Ding Dong Wizard of Oz mug. I just started rewatching this movie with my niece. She loves the wicked witch. She likes to pretend to throw water on me so that I will melt. She gets to be Dorthy and I'm the wicked witch.

RhondaAlbom on 07/12/2011

These Wizard of Oz mugs are great.

Dianne on 07/11/2011

It's pretty amazing how popular the Wizard of Oz still is after all these years. I just can't pick a favorite!

tandemonimom on 07/11/2011

Definitely thinking of getting that Wicked mug for my daughter, who adores the Wicked musical!

MugTreasuresByBrenda on 07/11/2011

I'm with you it is hard to pick one. I love the first one (Ding Dong) and the Wicked one and the "I'm a witch" one...

Susan52 on 07/11/2011

It's hard to choose just one, but I do especially like the Ding Dong the Witch Is Dead mug. Wizard of Oz is one of my favorite movies, so I really do love all of these.

bev-owens on 07/11/2011

Love the Wizard of Oz and these coffee mugs! It is difficult to pick just one.
