    I would just like to know... Why Tin Man? I mean... here in Quebec, we've heard "Le Magicien de Rouyn" (The Wizard of Rouyn) more more often... And that one is also much more "meaningful" than Tin Man...

    From the Wizard of Oz... the Tin Man did not have a heart. Described Pierre quite well.

    I always call him "Törtchen" which means "tartlet" just because of phonetic similarity.
