Not seeing it on a color set until age 15 or 16 (call it 1971), I never
understood the significance of "The Wizard of OZ" (which scared the crap
out of me as a kid, that nonsense about parents tragging their brats out
of "Return to OZ" in '85 because of the seeing a kid threatened with
electroshock left those kids with an expectation of something horrible
about to happen that their parents denied the resolution of -- hopefully,
those kids have since seen it on TV and resolved the trauma their parents
gave them, it's a lot less scary than the first sound [and color] OZ

OBclassic, in "Return to OZ (more than ten years ago) we did have an AI.
Mechanical, reminded of my long-lost DigiComp One that I could never
quite interface to my Mr. Machine.
