Storyline

During a twister, Dorothy is hit on the head by a gate and once again whisked away to the land of Oz. But this time, on her way to the Emerald City, she discovers a terrible plot by the witch Mombi to conquer Oz with an army of monster green elephants that's she's brewing up. She escapes with the help of Mombi's slave Pumpkinhead, and, together, they try to warn King Scarecrow and her other friends that Mombi is coming, but she finds that her friends haven't quite changed as much as she thought. So it's up to her, Pumpkinhead, and the living carousel horse Woodenhead to find a way to stop Mombi's Green Elephants. Written by Zedd

Oddly Linked to the "Over The Rainbow" Version
29 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

THIS CAN ONLY be described as a curious mixture of L. Frank Baum story, TV type limited animation and (for Hollywood "Star Power") a cast of veteran, well known performers doing the voices. Being the product of FILMATION ASSOCIATES, it was their 'ultimate' success. After all after doing so many Saturday morning kiddie cartoon shows, it was their one theatrical release.

ALTHOUGH MANY WOULD decry its lack of Disney-like polish or even the ingenuity and craftsmanship of the Fleischers, the production has much to recommend it.

WITHOUT ANY PRETENSIONS of being 'Art' or 'serious' drama, the production team gave us a straight forward telling of a story that has much more of the original Baum tales than one might imagine. Not least of which we point to the veteran cast.

IN A LINE-UP which must have co$t Filmation mucho buck$, we have: Milton Berle, Ethel Merman, Herschel Bernardi, Paul Ford, Jack E. Leonard, Paul Lynde, Mickey Rooney, Rise Stevens, Danny Thomas, Mel Blanc, Dal McKennonLarry Storch and Bill Cosby.

BY WAY OF a tribute to the legendary reputation of the MGM 1939 WIZARD OF OZ, the voice of Aunt Em is done by Margaret Hamilton and Dorothy was done by Liza Minelli, Judy Garland's daughter.
