The Munchkins were the citizens of Munchkin Town, an area in the Land of Oz. Their leader was the Munchkin Mayor. At one point in the town's history they were terrorized by the Wicked Witch of the East who ruled over them for a period of time.
But her reign of terror over the Munchkins ended when Dorothy Gale, an American girl from Kansas, and her dog Toto arrived in Oz via a cyclone, and the Gale house landed on top of the Witch by accident. Upon meeting their unexpected heroine and savior, they showed their gratitude to Dorothy along with the Good Witch of the North. However, the celebration was briefly interrupted by the arrival of the Wicked Witch of the West, the older sister of the Wicked Witch of the East. After the Witch swore vengeance against Dorothy and Toto and left, the Munchkins assisted Dorothy and Toto by pointing her to the Wizard of Oz via the Yellow Brick Road.
