Ruby Slippers - Pop Culture

Pop Culture

The progressive band Electric Light Orchestra used a frame from the 1939 film on the cover of their fourth studio album, released in 1974, Eldorado. This cover was laid out by Sharon Osbourne (then known as Sharon Arden).

In World of Warcraft, the Ruby Slippers are a pair of level 70 epic cloth shoes dropped by the Wizard of Oz-themed "opera event" in the Karazhan raid instance. The shoes function similarly to the hearthstone that all characters start out with, allowing them to teleport from their current location to the inn where the hearthstone is set. The caption under the statistic lines, much like in the movie, is "There's no place like home."

In the episode "Das Boots" of The Suite Life on Deck, London tries to save herself and other characters who are trapped aboard a submarine by putting on a pair of ruby slippers, and saying" There's no place like home."

    There is no comparing the brutality and cynicism of today’s pop culture with that of forty years ago: from High Noon to Robocop is a long descent.
