“Mellow Brick Road” by Reed Gauthier

Here’s a clever cut-out style digest version of The Wizard of Oz animated by Reed Gauthier, to a score comprised of samples from the 1939 movie by VJ Pogo

  • I gotta say, I really like the music, mainly the part at the beginning without the voice samples. And I don’t usually like that kind of music at all. The visuals are pretty nice too.

  • Wow! This was really well done. The song was catchy, the animation was good, and the pacing was really well executed. Whoever did this, really had a passion for the original movie and story. :)

  • That was really cool!

  • Kyle Maloney

    Is this the first time Pogo has done his own animation? (or if he didn’t do it, got someone else to)

  • The animation was a result of a contest to animate Pogo’s tune. You can find other not-quite-as-successful variants on youtube under “mellow brick road”.

    Like Uncle Wayne, my favorite film of all time, hands down. Never get tired of it.

    This little animation piece is brilliant, and is obviously done with a lot of love for the original…..really enjoyed it. Great job!

    That was really well done. I’m impressed.
