If they had an exhibition on Star Wars called "American Mythology" (a tag often applied to Star Wars), that doesn't mean they classify Star Wars as actual mythology, nor would we allow it in a 'Mythology' derby, despite seeing the connection, application of mythological themes, etc.

It's a great entry and we hope to see it in a future derby. It's just not what we're going for in this one.



Hmmmm. let's see. The nation's oldest federal cultural and research institution which also is the largest library in the world, with millions of books, recordings, photographs, maps and manuscripts in its collections, employing thousands of well educated and dedicated full time staff

*****or*****

a company that has been around 7 years and sells Flying Monkeys and Roombas, employing tens of people that think Red Bull is a food group and 90% of which have the iFart app on their smartphone and use it daily.

I'm going with the LOC on this one.

Well, this seven year old company is the one that prints and markets the shirts here. I would think it would be up to them rather than the Library of Congress on which shirts to do it with.

True they can print what ever they want...just don't base the decision on some half-baked criteria that contradicts the non-tee-shirt printing literary experts.

Do a little research. I can find THOUSANDS of references to Frank Baum as the father of the American FAIRY TALE. And no...these aren't hyperbolic statements from an exhibition.

"Since its publication in September 1900, L. Frank Baum's The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has become America's greatest and best-loved homegrown fairytale."

"Considered the creator of the first American fairy tale, Lyman Frank Baum was born atChittenango, New York, near Syracuse, on May 15, 1856."

"As he explained that he wanted to tell an exciting story with intriguing characters andevents. “Having this thought in mind,” he said, “the story of ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’was written solely to please children of today. It aspires to being a modernized fairy tale, inwhich the wonderment and joy are retained and the heartaches and nightmares are left out.”

"Many librarians banned it from their collections,declaring it was not quality literature, and other groups censored it as being controversial andinappropriate for children. Gradually, some authorities, such as Edward Wagenknecht in the1929 book Utopia Americana, credited Baum for creating an original American fairy tale inThe Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Other scholars said that Baum had appropriated European fairytale motifs. Since the late twentieth century, Baum’s Oz novels have been a staple for children’s literature analysis based on differing interpretative frameworks."


"He acknowledged the influence of The Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Anderson, and even Lewis Caroll‘s “Alice in Wonderland” books, but was deliberately setting out to create “American fairy tales.”

"L. Frank Baum did not come to write the books of Oz until he was well into his middle age. In American Writers for Children, 1900-1960, Michael Patrick Hearn writes that, "On 15 May 1900, Baum’s forty-fourth birthday, his most enduring work, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz , was printed. The new book, a full-length fairy tale, again illustrated by Denslow, matched the great success of Father Goose,"

And we could make the exact same argument and list similar quotes for Star Wars as mythology. People refer to it as American Mythology, Lucas drew directly from mythology just as Baum did fairy tales, it has familiar elements from mythology, and there have been exhibitions and books written about it as such. But we wouldn't (and didn't) want Star Wars in a mythology derby (or LOTR and similar 'modern mythologies') and we don't want Wizard of Oz in a Fairy Tale derby....

"In my review of A New Hope I called Star Wars "the quintessential American mythology," an American take on King Arthur, Tolkien, and the samurai / wuxia epics of the East, dressed in the space-opera trappings of Buck Rogers and Flash Gordon and festooned with a variety of nostalgic Hollywood influences — serial-adventure swashbuckling, WWII movie dogfights, movie-Need more history channel. villains, saloon shootouts."

"Lucas has been described as the first mass media mythologist. His inspiration for these mythical themes originated from a personal friendship with the late Joseph Campbell, perhaps the best-known expert in the field."

""Star Wars: The Magic of Myth" was on display at the National Air and Space Museum from October 31, 1997 to January 31, 1999. This online tour represents the exhibition as it was originally displayed at the National Air and Space Museum."

"Lucas had already written two drafts of Star Wars when he rediscovered Joseph Campbell's The Hero With a Thousand Faces in 1975 (having read it years before in college). This blueprint for "The Hero's Journey" gave Lucas the focus he needed to draw his sprawling imaginary universe into a single story."

Star Wars: The New Myth

Star Wars: The Power of Myth


And about a thousand other pages and books. We understand that people can consider Wizard of Oz an American fairy tale. For the purposes of this derby we don't, just like we accept that some people consider Star Wars to be American mythology, but we still don't want it in a mythology derby. Likewise we wouldn't want Pan's Labyrinth or Stardust references in this derby even though they could be considered modern fairy tales. Hopefully this is clear, I think we feel comfortable with this decision, however had we had the foresight to know someone would use the Wizard of Oz we might have known to included it in the "do not use" list. Hindsight is 20/20, so lesson learned on our part.

This is based on an old simple fairytale, whereupon the moon gets trapped in the marshes with wicked bogies.

This is my first attempt at designing, so any criticism (constructive please) and or comments most welcome. (I know I will have done some PONY-up in my submission too, so feel free with the pointers please!)

mythology: an ancient, fictional story, especially one dealing with gods, heroes etc.

While Star Wars may draw on mythology or have elements of mythology (like tons of other works out there) it's not mythology.

Fairy Tale (n) a story (as for children) involving fantastic forces and beings (as fairies, wizards, and goblins) —called also fairy story.

You tell me where the Wizard of Oz series fails to meet this definition. A wizard...flying monkeys...spells...witches, talking lion, scarecrow and tin man...munchkins.

You made a rash call, got publicly pants and now you pride can't let you admit your mistake. Pathetic.

I can find definitions that fit our argument as well:

A fairy tale is a type of short narrative that typically features such folkloric characters, such as fairies, goblins, elves, trolls, dwarves, giants or gnomes, and usually magic or enchantments. The Wizard of Oz does not apply to that definition.

The term mythology can refer to either the study of myths, or to a body of myths. Star Wars could apply.


The decision was not rash. We consulted on Friday on this one and on the Alice and Wonderland entry. In fact we took much more time in deliberating on this one. The call is that it's not what we're looking for in a fairy tale derby for the same reason Lord of the Rings or Star Wars is not what we're looking for in a mythology derby.
