What we have left: Tin Man Lion Bad Witch
Puzzles: Black Numbers Grey Numbers Four Light Pink Letters
Hints: For the Black Letters...In the movie, Dorothy runs away and visits a certain Professor For the Grey Numbers...Think about the RAINBOW and its COLORS...and Nick, our first place winner already solved this without knowing... For the Light Pink Letters...think about their placement; count their order...this one should be easy...

Yes! That is correct! There is no M in the letters of colors of the rainbow, so in the grey numbers, the number 15 was upside-down. This produced a W. The letter W, upside-down is M. BRAIN DAWAGE or BRAIN DAMAGE. This is the song that you need to apply the orange numbers on in order to get several words that give you clues on what to do with certain elements of the puzzle.
Nick has solved the grey numbers! Congrats again to Nick!
I am glad to see that we have a lot of people who have nothing to do on a Sunday! LOL!
Okay, we have one more puzzle left! The black numbers....They relate to Professor Marvel.

For the BLACK NUMBERS:
Watch the scene in the movie where Dorothy visits Professor Marvel. Look for a second crystal ball. (Not the one he uses to show her the picture of Aunty Em.) Once you see this, you can use this to decode the black numbers.
You can find pictures of this on the internet too, once you know what it is.
Note: The results you get are supposed to help as a key to the final cipher. But I found that the final cipher can be solved by brute force if you use the dcode site. Other sites may require this key. That is why the orange numbers say "key" near this puzzle.

my letters just dont make any words no matter which way I go
The zero makes me think there has to be at least 80 letters because it has an 8 on either side and there is no letter associated with zero. I tried working backwards from that but what really is the 80th letter? I get an "I" which makes the next letter and "N" with number 86 OR an H with number 82 going the other way. 9 or 93? 3 or 33? R vs C? The C depends on what words are used. Do we use "let him read your" (I cant legibly read the word below that... mind? palm?). Do we not use the words on the sides? Do we use the "and" between juggling & slight hand? I think the word "and" is there but it looks like a squiggly angled line too. Then if we only use the black letters..... there arent enough to make it to 86 (only 84 places). Over all though I would think some words would just start making sense like I N and T O O - I found 80 = Y 8= O 68 = U - I need to take a break.
the 37th letter or the 3rd and 7th and 32nd or the 3rd and 73rd.
