Written by Bob Sorrentino

Off to see the Wizard
22 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

I don't remember "Off to See the Wizard." According to TV.com, it ranked at #9 as the most favorite prime time program for children, ages 6-11 during the 1967 t.v. season. But, I am sure it could not compete with the #1 children's favorite: The Flying Nun! It was on Fridays for sixty minutes. The animated Oz characters had thirty-second segments that lead to the intro of the family movie of the week. CBS had the rights in 1967. 23 years later, there was a full animated series on ABC called "The Wizard of OZ!" "Off to See the Wizard" was up against "The Wild Wild West" on CBS and "Tarzan" on NBC. So, no wonder, I could not remember the program! I has having to difficult a time in deciding on "The Wild Wild West" and "Tarzan," swinging through the vines!
