It was in fact a bird like shooshie525 said. Although after the filming ended one of them died naturally.

No, and it's a shame the teacher said that about that innocent movie. Good job, teacher.

...maybe......? Orr the people will lie to you and say :) it wasn't a munckin
But.. I know. I know
It was a subliminal message from Disney.
Like the priest in the little mermaid at her wedding.
Or jasmine on the porch someone said good teenagers take off there tops
Or Jessica rabbit when she fell out if the car in who framed roger rabbit it showed her who ha... Lol
Youtube it Disney subliminal messages
Honestly that movie wasnt the first to show bad things
Oo oo oo in the lion king it spelled sex in the air. They all make excuses but trust me, people who grew up with Disney and now realizing. I believe it was intentional

They made an excuse because it was very violent for such a movie. It was not mentioned until the outbursts from the public...
People have there opinions. :(

I saw the Wizard of Oz three times but that was years ago. I don't recall a Munchkin committing suicide. I don't believe one did. I don't think anyone committed suicide. The worst parts of the movie were the flying monkeys attacking and taking Dorothy and her friends to see the wicked witch of the North. The movie was scary and awesome. The good witch looked like a queen angel if there were such a thing.
