It's a vague but reminiscent and entertaining memory.

Now how I recall those Friday nights when I'd see the Main 4 Characters going over the rainbow at the start of the show and even when they and The Wizard of Oz slid down the slide.recently I'd even checked this show out on You Tube to see how it would look?As you'll see too it did very well in mimicking the scenes in The Great Hall including from which the The Voice says "Pay no attention to that man behind the curtain!" Among others.It just has if not the same magic as the 1939 classic then very close to it.Very similar to it in fact. when it opens and closes with the classic song of somewhere over the rainbow.If you also saw this as a kid and reminisce about this then you'll be immediately transported back through time too.This would be great for release on DVD as well.So let's hope that it'll get on a.s.a.p. as well.Yes what a score it would be to be 4 again too.

Truthfully,Stephen "Steve" G. Baer a.k.a. "Ste"
