The Story begins as the movie, The Wizard of Oz, left off. Dorothy stands on a stage in the courtyard of the palace. On one side stand the Scarecrow, Tin Woodman and Lion and on the other side stands Glinda the Good Witch of the North. Dorothy clicks her heels together three times saying the phrase, There's no place like home, there's no place like home." On one of the clicks a small red ruby falls off her magic ruby red shoes. As Dorothy is magically lifted back over the rainbow, the Scarecrow looks down and seeing the small red ruby he picks it up and puts it into his pocket as a memento of the day unknowing of it's great power.
