3.What's the Significance of the Name, "Ozcat"?
The name "Ozcat" came from the preface to "The Lost Princess of Oz" by L. Frank Baum (yes, there were further trips to Oz after Dorothy's first visit. Baum signed his letter to his readers, "Ozcat at Hollywood in California". We supposed Baum was calling himself an Ozcat because he was a cool cat making movies in glamorous Hollywood.
Ironically, we later discovered that we had misread the original preface. Baum had signed it "Ozcot" not "Ozcat". It turns out Ozcot was Baum's beloved home (a play on the name "Ascot") in Hollywoood, California. In those days, Hollywood was a burgeoning suburd of LA with no inkling that it would become the entertainment capital of the world. Back then, Baum loved Hollywood for the small village it was--a place for people to work and live harmoniously.
At any rate, we kept it "Ozcat", a name with a nod to The Wizard of Oz" and a little "cool catness"
