In later books, The Cowardly Lion often accompanies Dorothy on her adventures. He is Princess Ozma 's chief guardian on state occasions, and he and the Hungry Tiger pull Ozma's chariot.

It came to me when I tried to classify your species, and I found that you're not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment, but you humans do not. You move into an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural existing resource is consumed, and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area.
There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet. You're a plague and we are the cure. Jules: "What country you from?! Jules: 'What' ain't no country I ever heard of!
