#18 Dorothy of Kansas
Winding up our list is Dorothy from Kansas. Representing hope and everything that is good and dreamy about youth the classic character first came to life from the pen of Frank Baum.
Dorothy found representation on the stage in the 1902 broadway adaptation and later in the 1939 classic film.
Judy Garland is perhaps the first name that comes to mind when it comes to the character. Her soulful voice lends the air of authenticity that immediately takes the audience on a journey of wonder.
