Of the 122 little people who portrayed Munchkins in the 1939 classic ‘The Wizard of Oz,’ four remain. And the folks over at BuzzFeed have tracked down “then and now” photos for each.

Updated: Sadly, Karl Slover has passed away the age of 93.

Margaret Pellegrini, who is pictured above, is the youngest surviving Munchkin at 88. The rest are below. Overall, it’s a happy bunch, and why not? They’re still alive and well while the Wicked Witch is dead.

Check out photos of the original Lollipop Guild below.
