I just always assumed they were somewhere in the back of Imelda Marcos' closet.

Until all the perpetrators are melted, this is an ongoing witch hunt, investigators say ...

June of this year:

[QUOTE]Jerry Maren, the actor who cherished his role as the middle Lollipop Guild Munchkin who serenades Judy Garland in the 1939 film classic “The Wizard of Oz,” died May 24 at an assisted care facility in LaJolla, Calif. near San Diego. On Wednesday, his nephew Lloyd Decker confirmed his death at age 98.

In the now iconic scene when Garland’s character Dorothy arrives in Technicolor Munchkinland, it’s Maren in his Munchkin guise who presents her with a large lollipop in appreciation that her twister tossed Kansas house has landed on top of the Wicked Witch of the East.


He donned at top hat and tossed confetti to the delight of grinning host Chuck Barris as a regular featured act on “The Gong Show” in the 1970s, as well as featured in McDonald's TV commercials appearing as some of the costumed characters such as the masked Hamburglar and Mayor McCheese. His feature film work credits included starring opposite Groucho Marx and The Marx Brothers in "At the Circus" in 1939 and playing a monkey in "Battle for the Planet of the Apes" in 1973.

Sometimes, both Maren and his wife were prized in roles playing “themselves,” such as dressing as a miniature bride and groom for filming of a 1996 Hootie and Blowfish music video and the now infamous episode of the NBC series "Seinfeld," which was the same 1997 episode that introduced the world to the expression "Yada, yada, yada." The couple played the "little people" parents to a shocked Kramer who was dating their very tall daughter.
