G is for Gump. Ozalces lasciva, better known as the gump, is a deer native to the Land of Oz. Somewhat resembling a cross between an elk and a moose with mostly green fur as well as a saucy, upturned nose, the best known gump is a trophy head hanging in the Emerald City palace, brought back to life by Princess Ozma (at the time enchanted as a boy called Tip) using some magic powder. Originally the figurehead to a lashup of a flying couch, the gump found this too embarrassing and eventually insisting on returning to a trophy hanging on the wall, where it would later annoy Dorothy when it tried talking to her.

A picture inspired by Emmet Earwax's Casper the Friendly Ghost/Oz crossover, whereupon, alarmed at foul magics causing everyone else in the palace to fall asleep, the gump attempted to pull itself off the wall and in a trice, extruded a whole new body for itself. It then proceeded to race out of the Emerald City and head south towards the Good Witch Glenda's kingdom, but grew tired partway and had to stop and rest. I don't think this is quite what he intended, but I saw the gump as the trophy head on a ghostly body (not unlike that of Nightmare, the Galloping Ghost's). Having not had a body for quite a while, it grew tired mentally trying to remember how to run once the immediate shock of getting a new body had worn off.
