This work and YouTube channel has been created to announce the 'discovery' of a VHS tape which allegedly contains the original, unedited footage reportedly displaying the suicide of a munchkin in the forest scene from the Wizard of Oz.
According to Wikipedia; 'An urban legend claims that, in the 1939 film, a Munchkin can be seen committing suicide (hanging by the neck from a prop tree and swinging back and forth) far away (left) in the background, while the Tin Woodsman, Dorothy, and the Scarecrow are singing 'We're off to see the wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz!' and skipping down the Yellow brick road into the distance. However, what is mistaken for a Munchkin can be seen to be a large bird (possibly a swan or a peacock) spreading its wings; there is a black tip on the wings.'
