The Wizard of Oz

Show Summary

In 1990, to capitalize on the publicity surrounding the movie's fiftieth anniversary, Turner Entertainment Co. and DIC produced this thirteen episode animated series, based on the movie. In the Unites States it ran on ABC Saturday mornings during the 1990-91 TV season. It began with the two part story "Rescue of the Emerald City", and concluded with the episode "Hot Air". Throughout the series the Wicked Witch of the West and Truckle, the flying monkey, would travel around Oz concocting evil plots to take over it and steal Dorothy's ruby slippers. Dorothy and her pet dog, Toto, return to Oz and meet with Glinda the Good Witch of the North, who tells them that Oz needs her help to stop the Wicked Witch of the West. So, Dorothy and Toto reunite with their friends, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, and the Cowardly Lion as well as getting help from Glinda and the Wizard himself.
