Return to Oz
Re-discover a long lost Arthur Rankin and Jules Bass classic as the wondrous tale of Dorothy and the Land of Oz comes to life through the vivid animation of the filmmaking duo who brought audiences Frosty's Winter Wonderland and Rudolph's Shiny New Year. The first of many network specials produced by the pair, Return to Oz finds Rankin and Bass returning the fantasy land formerly visited in The Tales of the Wizard of Oz to tell the tale of young Dorothy's ongoing adventures with Socrates the Strawman, Rusty the Tinman, Dandy the Lion, and, of course, her beloved dog Toto.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Comparisons to the universally lauded "The Wizard of Oz" (1939) are inevitable, but the scruffy sequel holds steady in many categories. That "Return to Oz" isn't a musical like its forebear makes it considerably darker and more relatable."
‑ Phil Villarreal, Arizona Daily Star
