Ojo (from The Patchwork Girl of Oz) is captured by Gypsies and escapes with fellow captive Snufferbux (whose full name is Snuffurious, Buxorious, Blundurious Boroso), a dancing bear. The pair meet up with Realbad, the leader of a group of bandits, who carries a secret that is connected to the Munchkin boy and his habitually closemouthed guardian Unc Nunkie. Together they discover X-Pando, the flexible man, and free the frozen Crystal City from the Blue Dragon. Dorothy, Scraps, and the Cowardly Lion set out looking for them but get lost and visit Dicksey Land and other strange places. Everyone is menaced by a fearsome wizard, and Ojo learns who his parents are.
