The Oompa Loompas are too out-of-shape from sampling Wonka’s chocolate. The Lollypop Guild would be their diabetic equals, but the Munchkins overall would knock them dead. Really most sincerely dead.
Please Daddy make it stop!!!
Well done, JThunder, you have combined my two worst childhood nightmares.
Runs off crying
The Munchkins would win, simply because the Oompa Loompas haven’t maxes their stats out and bent the game system to the breaking point.
Now, if they were recruiting… You wouldn’t catch me anywhere near the Munchkins.
What are you talking about?
The Munchkins are a bunch of effete lollypop-licking Cosmopolitans who have grown all to accustom to the autoritarian hand of one witch or another.
The Oompa Loompas on the other hand are scarred desert warriors, whose rigid and unyeilding moral standards reflect years of battle with Wang Doodles and Viscious Knishes.
The Oompa Loompas would tear the Munchkins a new one.
The Oompa Loompas are tubby and vaguely Swedish clowns.
Are we going from the book or movie? Because in the book, the Oompa Loompas weren’t quite as comical as the movie cousins, and I feel they could easily dispatch the Munchkins. Even the movie renditions seemed crafty enough that they’d be able to come up with some sort of design to destroy an adversary like the Wicked Witch. I mean, they developed a gun that could convert a person into television rays and shrink them. Compare that to the Munchin’s tactic of waiting for a freak tornado to drop a house on the Witch’s head, and it’s really no contest as to who would put up a better fight. I say the Oompa Loompa’s all the way.
The Oompa Loompas would kick some serious Munchkin ass. The OLs are tough, blue-collar factory workers with a grizzled past. They sing spooky tales of woe and are never seen smiling. The toughest the Munchkins have are the Lollypop Guild, and they all prance aroung singing happy tunes. I don’t think there’s even a match here.
Now if they went up against the Grunka Lunkas!
The Oompah Loompahs would hand the Munchkins their lunch. With a chocolate bar for dessert. And then a moralizing lecture in song about their weakness.
JThunder, if you haven’t read the original books, I would seriously suggest them–not only are they entertaining in their own right, but the songs the Oompa-Loompas sing are long poems that are much wittier and scarier than the songs from the movie.
There was one change from the book that I do think was right, though: The book Oompa-Loompas are more human-looking, but they’re also Black Pygmy-like people dressed in leopard-skins! Wonka has rescued them from some natural disaster that I can’t recall right now, and they have their own society–Charlie catches glimpses of little towns with schools, hospitals, police, and really tiny adorable baby Oompa-Loompas.
Oh yeah, the OP: Oompa-Loompas, without a doubt. One illustration shows them brandishing some very convincing spears at a foe. They can get silly but they don’t hide away and twitter.
Yeah…I’m pretty sure the Lollipop Guild has some ties to organizied crime. Methinks many an Ooompa Loompa would find himself sleeping with the Gummy-fishes.
Oh like the labor union at the Wonka factory isn’t connected? They’d have some Oompa Loompas from Jersey making sure the Mayor of Munchkinland woke up with the horse of a different color’s severed head in his bed.
Man I have too much time on my hands…
So . . . Oompas if they’re prepared?
Cut the munchkins some slack. They live in a land where awesome forces roam. They don’t fight the witches for good reason. Hell, they wouldn’t even be a match for the flying monkeys, never mind against magic.
Still, you gotta respect the technological superiority of the oompas. They’d take on the munchkins, the Keebler elves, hobbits, AND ewoks.
Why should anyone expect the Munchkins to prevail? They wouldn’t even do battle with the Wicked Witch of the West (WWW), even though she had no power in Munchkinland.
When the WWW confronted Dorothy, did the Lollipop Guild or the Lullaby League seize that opportunity to pummel her into a bloody green pulp? No, they stood idly by, like the craven cowards that they are. They could have at least gone for some water.
Asking questions in school is a great way to learn,
If you try that stuff here, you could get your legs broke!
We once found a dead guy face-down in the slurm,
It could easily happen again to you folks!
Yep. They sound mobbed up, all right.
What the hell, I don’t remember reading about Grunka Lunkas. What, and where are they?

Oompa Loompas are cannibals. I can see it it their eyes. You don’t want to be around when the candy runs out.
