It is highly possible that Baum took some of the personality traits of Alice and morphed them into his own for his character. He ultimately Americanized the character who would become known as Dorothy Gale. Despite Baum stating Dorothy is not based upon anyone real, the name of Dorothy was most likely chosen in homage to Baum's own real-life niece, 'Dorothy Louise Gage', who died in infancy. Baum's wife was very attached to her and was deeply grieved by her death, so there is speculation that Baum inserted her name into his stories as a memorial.
Lee Sandlin, writes that L. Frank Baum read a disaster report of a tornado in Irving, Kansas, in May which included the name of a victim, Dorothy Gale, who was "found buried face down in a mud puddle. The adolescent girl protagonist based and modeled upon Dorothy Gale is named Ellie Smith. Sometimes spelled Elly Smith in some printing versions And the dog that serves as Toto is named Totoshka.
In this version, much of the story is the same as Baum's original story with only a few changes in the plots and most of the character's names are translated into Russian form. Dorothy meets Jamie Diggs, the great-grandson of the Wizard at Glinda's palace. She receives a special gift of his friendship by Ozma, which represents the central theme of the book. Dorothy, along with Toto, accompanies Jamie who is declared the new Royal Magician of Oz, on his journey to battle the Army of Trees and casts her own Spell of the Stone Morels against the army of Morel Mushrooms who have sided with the Fighting Trees.
Magician of Oz. Dorothy reunites with Jamie and meets his best friend, Buddy, when they arrive by balloon in the Emerald City. She joins them and even Ozma as they travel by balloon to explore the dark hole beneath the covered bridge in Winkie Country where the Shadow Demon was reborn. Her encounter with him while travelling by boat along the Winkie River provides Jamie a critical clue that sends him and Buddy to Mount Munch in order to save the Hyups from the Shadow Demon. Shadow Demon of Oz. They travel to the Emerald City and reunite with the rest of Jamie's family and friends, all of whom have been transported to Oz by means of a magic box.
Dorothy joins everyone as they travel south to the banks of the Munchkin River to watch the climatic battle against Cobbler the Dog, the mechanical pet of Tik-Tok, who was possessed by the evil remains of the Wicked Witch of the East. Family of Oz. Roger S. Baum is the great-grandson of L. Frank Baum. In this story, the tale starts in Kansas.
While Toto is barking at the chickens and Aunt Em and Uncle Henry are working on the farm, Dorothy is making her bed in the morning and takes a peek out her bedroom window to see a bright and beautiful rainbow in the distance. With Toto at her side, she rushes outside to try and catch it. When she finally reaches it, she then sees Glinda the Good Witch inside it. She tells Dorothy that she must return to Oz so that she can save her friends from an evil jester. She retrieved the Silver Shoes that Dorothy lost in the Deadly Desert on her flight back home from Oz after the first trip.
She tells Dorothy that the desert has weakened the power of the shoes' magic, so they can only work two more times to take her to Oz and then back again before the charm officially dies. Dorothy uses them for her and Toto to go back to Oz and let the adventure begin. Author Gregory Maguire combined both the original character of 's Dorothy by Baum and the version of Dorothy portrayed by the late Judy Garland while adding his own traits into the character making it work for the story of Wicked.
In Maguire's story she is portrayed as a good-natured child. She is practical, single-minded and even slightly boring. She also has a tendency to burst into song, which the Ozians find irritating to the point she is able to use it as a threat later in the book series. Baum's Dorothy was around ten to twelve years old. Maguire also keeps her a mere child like in the original book, while also adding some of the personality traits and mannerisms of Judy's iconic portrayal of her who was sixteen when she played the role. And much like in the original story by Baum, Maguire confirms that her experience in Oz was indeed a real place and not a dream like it appeared to be in the film version.
In Wicked , Dorothy is not the focal point of the plot even though she does play a rather small but very important role, but only because the story could not exist without her. Dorothy is mentioned several times but is only involved in the chaos and drama towards the end of Maguire's tale. Dorothy is seen as a mere outsider who cannot read Oz's unique writing system, knows nothing about Oz's complex politics and overall system, laws or history. Dorothy is oblivious to the world around her, as everything seems so magical and alien to her. Although she is well-meaning, mature for her age and very compassionate beyond her years, her innocence and unyielding desire to return to Kansas, causes a domino effect in the result of negative outcomes.
And much-unwanted trouble and heartache for the main character of the book, Elphaba Thropp. It is Elphaba's bad reputation as Dorothy does not know any better to think of Elphaba for anything other than what everyone else in Oz views her as, which is "Wicked". Even though Elphaba is not actually so, just misunderstood. But Dorothy, however, is not aware of this until she meets Elphaba in the Vinkus aka the " Winkie Country " at the Kiamo Ko castle when the Wizard sends Dorothy to kill her. However, in Wicked there is no indication if the character of Almira Gulch exists.
In both Baum's original children's book of and Maguire's mature revision, Dorothy attends a banquet party in Oz and spends her first night on the Yellow Brick Road at the house of a wealthy Munchkin named Boq who is the richest one in Oz. He held this celebration in honor of her for killing the Wicked Witch of the East and setting the Munchkins free from her bondage. This was not portrayed accurately in the film but in Wicked it is revealed that the two characters discussed the etymology of Dorothy's name.
Boq finds it interesting that it is the reverse of her land's "King" Theodore — which means "Gift of the Gods" — and that it means "Goddess of Gifts". This fact causes many of the superstitious Ozians to look at her as a saint in the flesh. And much like a disciple sent to Oz to fulfill a prophecy by the "Unnamed God". The fact that she wears Nessarose 's magic shoes make the Ozians even more superstitious of her. And the coincidence her last name is the same of the Wizard's Army aka the "Gale Force" makes her nearly untouchable.
Her disposition was so incredible to the Ozians, they imagined at one point that she must be an assassin, disguised as a "Gullible Sweetheart". And just like in Baum's original book the Scarecrow and Tin Woodman are left behind in the dark, unforgiving night.
After an uncomfortable and disastrous meal, Elphaba pulls Dorothy into one of the castle's towers in an attempt to straighten things out. While also assuming she had to be tied into the tapestry of conspiracies in Oz, she confesses that the Wizard sent her to kill Elphaba, but Dorothy, being a mere child, simply cannot bring herself to do such a terrible task. Elphaba commands her to hand over the slippers, but they are enchanted under the protection of Glinda and will not come off.
Dorothy explains that the Wizard himself even tried to pry them off before sending her to the Vinkus in exchange to be sent back home. Despite her efforts, they will not come off, Dorothy is magically locked tight inside of them, for better or worse. As it became apparent, Elphaba briefly realizes that Dorothy reminds her much of herself, as both Dorothy and Elphaba are misunderstood, outsiders.
Elphaba finally sees that Dorothy is just an innocent human girl from a different place who had been thrown into a world that she knew nothing about. But then Elphaba becomes physiologically and emotionally crippled by Dorothy's honest pleas for forgiveness for killing her sister. This pushes Elphaba to her psychological breaking point. She finally snaps and goes insane and this is when Elphaba accidentally sets herself on fire due to not paying attention to her surroundings. The hot sparks from a nearby candle caught on her long robes and black cape, setting her ablaze.
Dorothy, seeing her in trouble, tries to save the woman and put out the fire by grabbing a nearby bucket of water that was collecting rainwater from a leak. Dorothy, not knowing water is fatal to Elphaba, tosses the bucket at her without a second thought. To her horror, it tragically melts her away, killing her by accident instead of helping her as Dorothy thought it would.
In the sequel Son of a Witch , the story picks up right after Elphaba's tragic death. While traveling through the Vinkus, Dorothy and the group all meet a shapeshifting Princess who is also the head leader of her native tribe. The Princesses name is Nastoya who appeared to the group as a human girl but was originally an elephant at birth. Nastoya explains to them all that because of the Wizard and his prejudice veiws against Animals, she disguised herself and vailed her true form as a clever shield of protection.
Yet Nastoya confesses she is finding it increasingly difficult to switch forms which leads her to believe she is dying. As so, Nastoya shockingly morphs herself and transforms right infront of Dorothy and her companions which is described to be revolting to watch as Nastoya's skin stretches and her bones shift and body mutates. Seeing this, Dorothy nearly vomits in her apron and Toto passes out in a nervous fit. In the third and final book of the Wicked series Out of Oz , it is revealed that an old Witch called "La Mombey" was the sorceress who placed the spell on her.
When Dorothy reaches the Emerald City Liir is told to wait outside the Wizard's palace while Dorothy and her friends step inside to speak with Oz. Despite her promise to come back to say goodbye before returning to Kansas , Dorothy forgets about Liir and leaves without a proper farewell, leaving Liir heartbroken. Despite this, Liir does not hold it against her because he understands how eager she was to get back home. It is rumored by the Ozians that when Dorothy was sent home, she was seen descending up into the sky waving her apron and carrying that "damn fool dog".
He meets her on the yellow brick road when she is already accompanied by the Scarecrow and Nick Chopper the Tin Woodman. In the fourth and final book of the Wicked series Out of Oz , it is explained that Dorothy is teleported home, flying over the magical Land of Oz and back to Kansas thanks to the power of Nessa's beautiful slippers.
Unfortunately, she loses them when they fell off her feet on the flight back somewhere in between the universe that separates Oz from the civilized world. And just like in the original book by Baum, they are never recovered. Nevertheless, Dorothy reappears on the horizon, shoeless but still in one piece on the prairie, and of course, holding Toto in her arms. Due to her extended disappearance and unexplainable survival from the cyclone, the other local children at the schoolhouse Dorothy attends, completely shun her and label her a freak of nature for riding the winds of a twister and living to tell about it, nonetheless suddenly reappearing out of nowhere months later.
To keep herself from feeling lonely, Dorothy takes up singing to hide the fact that no one at school would talk to her. And her tales of Oz only make her seem completely crazy, thus making her unmarriageable and "ungodly". Six years later, Dorothy and Toto are unexpectedly sent to Oz by fate once again. But now she is approximately sixteen years old. Even though it has been less than a decade since her first visit in her world, it has been around twenty to thirty years in Oz's time. Back in Kansas, Dorothy's relatives never believe her stories about Oz and criticize her for having her head in the clouds and sabotaging her future.
However, after sightseeing, Dorothy ends up being trapped with Toto in a motel elevator when an earthquake hits believed to be the same California earthquake from When the building collapses the elevator falls into the bowels of the Earth and into another dimension. It falls from the sky, accidentally lands on a cow, and kills it. And Toto is somehow lost in the process when he falls out of the elevator doors which are cracked just enough for him to slip through. Dorothy is buried alive under all the rocks and pieces of the Earth that the earthquake brought down along with the elevator.
Luckily, it is found by nearby locals who dig up and save her. She suffers from a temporary state of amnesia and a bump on her head which gives her a near concussion. She is taken in by strangers and nursed back to health. She spends many months recuperating from the traumatic event and slowly gains her memory back. When Dorothy's health strengthens she realizes she is back in the Land of Oz again, specifically in the country of the Glikkus tribe.
She learns that Oz has fallen into war and the Glikkun trolls extradite her to Munchkinland's new capital, Bright Lennins, where the new Eminence has her stand trial for the murders of saint Nessarose and saint Elphaba Thropp, calling it "regicide. And sure enough, the overall court case finds her guilty and she is sentenced. But to her surprise her old friend, Brrr aka the Cowardly Lion, came to her aid.
He is also accompanied by Mr. Boss and Little Daffy who helped rescue her from her harsh sentence. They then immediately high tail it out of Munchkinland before "things get ugly". Eventually Brrr is made the governor of Oz until the long lost Princess Ozma comes of age to take the throne. Dorothy is finally reunited with Toto whom she thought was dead and the Grimmerie book is used to send them back to San Francisco to see if Aunt Em and Uncle Henry survived the earthquake or not. Dorothy is the main antagonist of the non-canon Oz novella, Birds of Prey.
Her appearance is much like that of the Judy Garland in the film adaptation, except her ruby slippers are replaced with a silver necklace adorned with a ruby. Dorothy is called "Gale" throughout the story, and she is presented as a vampire. In the hit Broadway musical version of Maguire's book, also titled Wicked , Dorothy is never seen despite being referred to and talked to on stage. Only a silhouette is seen of a girl behind a screen who's presumed to be her, tossing a bucket of water on Elphaba aka The Wicked Witch of the West. Author Vincent Begley wrote a novel based off of the character of Dorothy.
It is a Memoir that is written as if she was a real person. This novel wasn't very successful, but most likely due to the fact it came out around the same time as Gregory Maguire's Wicked , which we all know was a huge success. Instead, the novel explores the tragic, but very moving life of "Dorothy Gael" in this version her last name really is spelled Gael , in 's Kansas, whose traumatic experiences with Aunt Emily and Uncle Henry after her mother's death lead her to create an imaginary and idealized world in her mind based on some of her real-life experiences as a way of coping with her harsh reality.
Dorothy Must Die is a young adult book by Danielle Paige and her debut novel. It shows a corrupt Dorothy who has usurped control of Oz and is hoarding all of it's magic for herself with the aid of Glinda and an equally corrupt the Scarecrow , Tin Woodman , and Cowardly Lion. A prequel, No Place like Oz , was released as an Ebook and showed the start of her corruption.
At sixteen years old, she has grown tired of her Kansas life and is sent back to Oz via a new pair of red magic shoes made for and given to her by Glinda, an obvious homage to the iconic Ruby slippers. Once there, she becomes addicted to the power of the shoes and overthrows Princess Ozma. The first musical adaption of Oz was a Avant-Garde version loosely based upon the book and produced by Baum and Denslow with music by composer Paul Tietjens in Chicago in and moved to New York in Dorothy was portrayed by Theater Actress Anna Laughlin. In this stage version of Oz, many elements were left out due to being impractical for the time.
For example: Dorothy does not wear Silver Shoes or any type of magic footwear. It used many of the same characters, and was aimed more at adult audiences. It had a long, successful run on Broadway. Rockefeller by name. Many existing songs that had nothing to do with the story were interpolated. Both were panned as rehashes rather than sequels; although Tik-Tok did better than The Wogglebug, neither made it to Broadway. Judy Garland was fifteen at the time she portrayed the twelve-year-old Kansas farm girl who gets swept away to Oz via cyclone. She turned sixteen on the set during the shooting of the movie as she began to develop into a curvy young woman.
Despite being technically too old to play Dorothy as Baum intended his character in the book to be a little girl, even as a teenager Judy did portray a very good Dorothy of Kansas that captivated the world for decades to come. With her wide-eyed expression of an adolescent girl, Judy was perfect for the role. Thanks to her talented singing voice, she beat many other young actresses for the lead role such as Shirley Temple who was a loyal fan of Baum's Oz books, and was more close to the look and age of Baum's description of Dorothy.
Judy was put on a strict diet and even given barbiturate drugs which would lead on to a life long battle of personal demons. During shooting, Judy was forced to wear a special type of corset under her costume. It flattened out her curves by painfully binding her breasts down flat against her chest to make her appear as a twelve-year-old girl who was more innocent, underdeveloped and younger than her real-life age.

In this animated little version of the Oz stories, Dorothy is swept back to Oz to find an evil Witch who wants to take over the land and the Emerald City.

In , child actress Fairuza Balk would be the next girl to wear the iconic ruby slippers. The next role she was to play was Dorothy in Disney's Return to Oz , now considered an official cult classic. She would later go on to have a rather successful acting career and star in many other films such as The Craft and The Waterboy.
Return to Oz is a semi-sequel film to the musical movie. Balk stars as the insomniac and melancholy Dorothy who can't stop thinking about her adventures in Oz and everyone she befriended or encountered there. The look and feel and tone of Return to Oz was intended to give its audience a more surreal and realistic point of view of the magical Land of Oz and all its inhabitants and characters. Unlike the film it presented Oz as a real place instead a mere cameo-dream. This take on Oz displayed all of the dark and nightmarish aspects from the Oz books that the musical left out.
During its theatrical release in summer , it received disastrous reviews by the critics for being too scary and intense for children.
