Mickey Carroll

Born: 1919-07-08 - Died: 2009-05-07
Cause of Death:

Death Summary: Mickey Carroll died on May 7, 2009. The exact cause of death is unknown at this time.

Who was Mickey Carroll : Carroll was an actor and one of the last surviving munchkins from the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz.

He began taking dance lessons at the age of 7 at the Fox Theater in St. Louis, Missouri. It was there that he met Jack Haley and the two eventually went to Hollywood and appeared in a few Spanky and Our Gang episodes.

He signed a contract with MGM and was in school when he met Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney. Garland herself offered Carroll his roll in The Wizard of Oz. He was cast as the Munchkinland "Town Crier".

His Wizard of Oz costume consisted of yellow flowers sticking out of a striped vest with a purple cloak. Along with the town crier roll he also played a "Munchkin Solider" and a candy-striped "Fiddler" who escorted Dorothy down the yellow brick road on her way to the Emerald City.

Soon after The Wizard of Oz was done filming, Carroll quit acting because he knew his height would become a factor in getting roles.

In 2007 the "Munchkins" received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

    I was saddened to hear about the passing of Mickey Carroll, my favorite Munchkin, from my favorite all time movie…The Wizard of Oz. A few years back, I had the utmost pleasure of meeting Mr. Carroll at a memorbilia shop in Myrtle Beach. It was one of the happiest days of my life!! (I hugged him so tightly I thought I was going to break him in two!) As Mickey would have said, “Follow the Yellow Brick Road…” He is truly on the magical road for eternity. Thanks to you, Mr. Carroll, for putting a smile on the faces of so many. MUNCHKIN LOVE…right back at you.

  3. Stephen Bossman Says:

    Like most of us I too was saddened by Mickey Carroll’s death. I met Mickey at Nashville Tenn, at a memorbilia booth. He and I had a wonderful visit. He took me all the way back to the land of Oz while there. I was so excited to hug him that I didn’t want to leave. He was an amazing man, and such a wonderful outlook on life. He shared his stuggles and his successes with me, and even “muchkin’d” for me! Mickey, hope to see you again one day

    I am saddened to know you have past. But when my little girl met you at brewery tour in St. Louis, Mo….she knew right away who you were….and could not stop beaming from ear to ear that she met someone that was in her favorite movie…at that time she was four. Thank you for being a part of a classic and wonderful movie. You and your talent will be missed.

    Port Lavaca,Tx. To all who will live on to remember Mickey Carroll;It will be a lesser world without him. We will have the wonderful “Wizard of Oz” to relive the short moment in a very nice mans life.He added alot of nice moments in many of lives over the years, of the living and many who are not.I hope that the ones that were a part of Oz that are with him now are all dancing and singing down the yellow brick road.May they all be eternally happy and realize now,if not before, just how happy they made all of us.So long Mickey,farewell dear man.

  10. Jean Paul Says:

    I wrestled him as fetus yes a fetus. It was an underground fetus fighting league. Moms would pop us in and out. All theyVcared about was the cash. We were the ones who became dwarfs from the lack of womb time. Mickey and I had a fight sceduled for the chevron station on the corner. At least twenty gamblers were there that night. We couldn’t see yet but we locked up. He beat me senseless I tell ya.
