"I'm not feeling well," said the Scarecrow, with a smile, "for it is very tedious being perched up here night and day to scare away crows."

 Winning over an impressionable young lady with just a wink and a smile, the Scarecrow was the best innate idea man this side of Oz. Although he was built to be zombie proof, the Scarecrow managed to think of practical solutions to the ridiculous problems that the intrepid travelers ran into. I for one couldn't help but to think back when I was a kid how cool it'd be to not have to deal with pain or stumping your toes while being unapologetically wobbly. Granted my first take on this was watching Michael Jackson portray him as a accidental brake-dance machine. Regardless of whatever version you're a fan of, the Scarecrow will always be the #1 road trip partner.
