Original Munchkin Dead at 94


Meinhardt Raabe, one of the few surviving Munchkins from The Wizard of Oz, passed away on Friday from an apparent heart attack. Raabe's appearance in the film was uncredited, but as the Munchkin coroner he famously proclaimed that the Wicked Witch of the East was "most sincerely dead," a strong diagnosis considering she got crushed by a house.
