The Wizard of Oz

King Randy of Regalia is frustrated and bored with the endless ceremony of his royal routine. When his old friend Kabumpo the Elegant Elephant arrives for a visit, the two quickly decide on an excursion through the countryside. After odd encounters in Gaper Gulch and the Headlands, they are blown across the Deadly Desert in a ferocious storm. (Kabumpo's raingear acts as a sail in the storm, and a parachute upon landing.) They land in Ix, and head toward Ev to visit their old friend Jinnicky the Red Jinn.
