Kuma Party is one of the strange magical beings to be found in the Land of Oz.
He lives in a little yellow house in the Winkie Country, and appears to be a normal human being, a somewhat elderly man with a soft voice and a kindly smile, who enjoys sitting in his armchair smoking a pipe.
Yet he has the remarkable ability to detach parts of his body — his hand, his foot, his head — and send them flying through the air to accomplish tasks. His detached foot can give a kick at a distance, and his hand is very adroit at remote applications.
Kuma Party is the son of Wumbo the Wonder Worker, a wizard of the Zamagoochie Country. Kuma attributes his "strange come-apartishness" to his father's magic.
