In the movie the Wizard of Oz Scarecrow is meant to be portrayed simple minded, When Dorothy first meets Scarecrow, in the movie, he can not seem to make up his mind on which path Dorothy should continue on to. In the film when it comes down to choices Scarecrow doubts his plans, thinking they will not be good enough, but the truth is all along he was smart.

Scarecrow is the one that offers his plan and it worked just the way they had hoped too. What the Scarecrow initially resembles are the farmers during the Populist movement era.
Thus, if a user wishes to purchase the Nintendo game cartridges (software), he/she will have to purchase the Nintendo hardware. The incompatibility across competing hardware systems and video game software creates and sustains this network effect. The video game industry is also an example of a two-sided market in that the console producer acts as an intermediary between consumers and video game developers. As such, consumer demand depends on video game developers providing a variety of games, and video game developers desire a large user base for which to produce and sell games (without users, producing the game is useless). The industry also has positive network effects in that as the console user base increases, so does the number of video game cartridges sold.

Many modern works are based on Greek myths; movies, myths, and music have all been subject to the lure of the ancient Greeks. However, no myth has been more influential that the greatest Greek hero of all, Heracles. The myth of Heracles has been reproduced countless times, but none have been as successful as Disney’s Hercules. This movie packs the legend into a family-friendly package. While the essence of the Herculean legend is captured in Disney’s dramatization, it warps the story to keep it fit for a younger crowd, and this leads to some major inconsistencies between the myth and the movie.

Over the past 70 years, Walt Disney Productions has produced animated feature films that have captured the heart and imagination of audiences of all ages through the magic of storytelling and imagery. Radical social shifts have occurred throughout these years and the social norm has not always been of the utmost benefit to all genders or racial creeds. To refute that these ups and downs have not been captured within some Disney animated classics, as in all others forms of literature and art, would be a misconception.
