The Tin Man was a tin-like humanoid man who lived in a small house in the woods of the wonderful world of OZ. Since he is made out of metal, he gets rusted up quickly and often carries an oil can. He also feels that he doesn't have a hat since he is not human. He eventually meets a lost girl called Dorothy, her dog and a Scarecrow. After learning that they are on there way to the Emerald city to meet the Wizard of OZ in order to grant them their wishes, he comes along with them, hoping that the Wizard can give him a heart. On the way, they meet a Cowardly lion who wishes to have courage and joins them.Once they reach the city, the Wizard refuses to grant them their wishes, unless they bring him the broom of the Wicked witch. On their quest to kill the wicked witch, the Tin Man proves that he does have a heart. When their quest is over, the Wizard of Oz turns out to be just a simple old man. The Wizard, however feeling bad, tells the Tin Man that he had a human heart all along, but he gives a mechanical ticking heart to the Tin Man to remind him of his heart.
