THE WONDERFUL WIZARD OF OZ: The Wonderful Wizard of Oz is an imaginative, feature-length animated film, faithfully adapted from the classic book by L. Frank Baum.

This version of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz contains scenes from the book not included in the MGM movie.
THE MARVELOUS LAND OF OZ: This adventure features a brave young boy named Tip, the lovable Jack Pumpkinhead, the gruff wooden Sawhorse, and the evil witch Mombi, who is Tip's guardian. Tip and his amazing friends escape Mombi and head toward the Emerald City, now ruled by the Scarecrow. Joined by Dorothy, who has returned to Oz, they meet General Ginger and her all-female army who are planning to invade and take over their beloved Emerald City. Meanwhile, Glinda, the Good Witch, has learned that the original King of Oz had an heir. While battling with the forces of General Ginger, Tip, Dorothy, and their friends discover that the rightful ruler of Oz has been amazingly transformed.
OZMA OF OZ: Dorothy revisits the Land of Oz and encounters a group of Wheelers (fuzzy creatures with wheels instead of feet) and a friendly robot-like character named Tik Tok. On a mission to help save the Royal Family of Ev, Dorothy is reunited with the Scarecrow, Tin Woodsman, and the Lion, and meets Ozma, the Princess of Oz. Dorothy and her friends venture to the underground caverns of Nomeland, narrowly escaping the evil magic of the Nome King in their daring rescue of the Prince of Ev.
THE EMERALD CITY OF OZ: The Nome King plots his revenge against the Oz people, who narrowly defeated him in Ozma of Oz. Working with the help of Guph, an invasion specialist, the Nome King and his troops tunnel under the Deadly Desert with the aim of enslaving the people of the Emerald City. Dorothy, the Tin Woodsman, the Scarecrow and their friends fear the worst, as Princess Ozma insists on finding a non-violent solution.
