"This brings back memories, from over 10 years ago, from my happy "WIZARD OF OZ" filled child-hood. This is a wonderful, funny and cool cartoon. *SPOILER ALET* Dorothy is singing about how she misses OZ in a meadow when the storm her aunt and uncle were getting ready for, turns into a roaring black twister, and Dorothy is knocked unconscious by a swinging padock gate. the twister carries her body away (with TOTO) and they get spat out into munchkinland. Dorothy meets a cool signpost, when she decides to go visit the scarecrow who is king of the emerald city. She trips down into a little glen, and meets a pumpkinheaded man, hiding from his witch mistress "MOMBI". Dorothy meets Mombi and hears of her plan to conquer the Emerald City and throw the Scarecrow off his throne, by using a herd of giant magical green elephants...all new songs, all new characters (the old ones are there too) and AMAZING BACKDROPS) it's a little cheezey "

"If you buy this, you won't need to buy last year's release of "Journey Back to Oz" special edition. This collection gives you the ....Oz special edition dvd, with all the same extras, and two other Filmation Animated Features: Snow White Happily Ever After (with extras) and "A Snow White Christmas."
It's great value for money, and your children will enjoy these classic cartoons done in Filmation's distinctive style of animation.
The Journey Back to OZ DVD includes a feature commentary with Lou Scheimer and other production staff.
Buy and enjoy.
Amazon's price is great too!"
The Kiddie version of Return To Oz

"This long awaited sequel to "The Wizard of Oz" may bore some adults who aren't hardcore fans of the original or aren't animation fans in general, but kids and adult Oz fans should be pretty well captivated. In the story, Dorothy returns to Oz in another storm, then quests to visit her friend the Scarecrow, King of Oz. She of course takes the Yellow Brick Road, where she and Toto encounter a witch and make new friends of Pumpkinhead and Woodenhead the Horse. The story plays a lot like the original, except with pretty bad songs. Very dated. Good celebrity voice talents help a bit though, such as Judy Garland's daughter Liza Minnelli in her mom's role. The animation is cute, though not that impressive. It's a fun, retro romp if you're a loyal Oz fan. I ordered it because I always remembered seeing it as a kid, and, being a major Oz fan, I loved it back then. This review comes after I've seen it again as an adult. For my money, the 1985 Disney live-action film "Return To Oz" is the one to go with, but it's a dark film that some consider bordering on horror. This is the kiddie version of that film with a couple of the same characters. Anyway, the thing that bothered me about this video was that Dorothy's old friends weren't very eager to help her. No loyalty at all there! That's not how I imagined the Tinman and Lion to be! Overall, though, it's good. If you think you can handle it, get "Return to Oz" also (or instead), and, if you can, get the DVDs of the DIC animated series from 1990 that was strongly based on the classic MGM film!"
