Storyline

This 150-episode series of shorts chronicles Dorothy's long stay in the land of Oz. The Munchkins are portrayed as tiny globs; the Scarecrow is a fool named Socrates; the Tin Woodman is a bully named Rusty; and the dandy Lion is called Dandy. The Wizard, who speaks like W.C. Fields, can perform little magic beyond card tricks. Nevertheless, Dorothy continually pressures the Wizard to send her home. A constant threat is posed by the solid-green Wicked Witch of the West, who tries to make the dragonette Desmond follow her orders and attack the group of friends, even though he has no malice toward them.

I didn't even remember the title of this show until now but it's certainly a childhood favorite cartoon of mine.
16 January 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This cartoon used to air on TV in Canada all the time and even if the cartoon came out during the 60's.

It never felt outdated to me at all as a kid and this was back during the late 80's and early 90's.

Thats pretty impressive that this show stood the test of time for that long.

I just re watched an episode yesterday on youtube and it was still as funny as i remembered it.

The animation and the drawings maybe a little crude but i didn't care as a kid nor do i care now since the entertainment value is still there.

If you have children of your own. I would highly recommend getting a DVD of this series and show your kids.

They'll likely really love this show as much as you did as a child and have a whole lot of fun watching it.

in closing they just don't make cartoons like they used to.
