Margaret Pelligrini — “Wizard of Oz” Munchkin

I wanted to go back to March 2nd, 2000 for today’s post. This is an interview we did with Margaret Pelligrini. She was one of the “Munchkins” in the 1939 movie “The Wizard of Oz”. Margaret passed away on August 7, 2013.

Margaret would come through Grand Rapids every year or two. She would be a guest at a local toy show. She was always such a pleasure to talk to…both on and off the air.

At the time of this interview, she was one of about 10 Munchkins that were still alive. Over the last 16 years, that number has dwindled down to just one remaining Munchkin — Jerry Maren. Jerry is 96 years old!

Here is our interview with Margaret on “The Rick and Scott Show”…



My goal is to keep you informed and/or entertained on a regular basis. Maybe you'll learn something new, or just get that much needed laugh. My topics will include a wide range of subjects....from what's going on in the world, to places I've been, things I've seen, or even just a fun video that I've found online. Check back often to see what I've posted.
