DVD Review: Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz: Emerald City Season One Volume Two

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the DVD I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.

Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz: Emerald City Season One Volume Two is based on the magical stories in L. Frank Baum’s original Oz book series. The animated series is produced by Warner Bros. Animation. Sam Register serves as Executive Producer with Jeff DeGrandis as producer.  The voice cast includes Kari Wahlgren as Dorothy and Queen Ozma, Jess Harnell as Lion, JP Karliak as Tin Man, Bill Fagerbakke as Scarecrow and Jessica DiCicco as Wilhelmina.

Somewhere Over the Rainbow is a vast and wondrous world, where adventures with Munchkins, Witches, and Flying Monkeys are just a hop, skip, and a jump down the Yellow Brick Road. Where an eight-year-old Kansas farm girl named Dorothy, embarks on heroic quests, armed only with a pragmatic, “can-do” attitude, an iconic gingham dress, a pair of magical Ruby Slippers, and the support of some very special friends. Close your eyes and click your heels together three times for more animated adventures featuring Dorothy, the plucky Kansas farm girl and her adorable dog Toto.

After the Wicked Witch of the West’s defeat, Queen Ozma has appointed Dorothy the Princess of Emerald City. With her feet firmly grounded in her ruby slippers, Dorothy tackles her royal duties with enthusiasm, bravery and farm girl feistiness. And whether it’s magic, munchkins, flying monkeys or her arch-nemesis Wilhelmina, the wicked witch-in-training and niece of the Wicked Witch of the West, Dorothy is ready to track down and put a stop to any problem that comes Oz’s way. Packed with memorable melodies and iconic Oz imagery, “Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz” is also sure to delight fans of the original books and the classic film The Wizard of Oz.

The front of the packaging features the artwork you see at the top of the page and the back includes episode details, an image and list of special features. The DVD disc also features its own individual artwork. Inserting the disc, the menu screen was simple and easy to navigate. The picture and sound quality for this standard-definition release were really good. I didn’t have nay issues with the video and audio.

Bottom line is, Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz: Emerald City Season One Volume Two continues the silly adventures of young Dorothy who continuously outsmarts and outwits her arch-nemesis Wilhelmina. The young girl from Kansas and her friends (Scarecrow, Tinman and the Cowardly Lion) dodge mischievous spells thrown at them by the young witch and the stumbling blocks those bumbling flying monkeys try to pull. Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz: Emerald City continues the fun stories that are geared towards a much younger audience and includes inspiring storytelling about friendship, lending a helping hand to those in need and even forgiveness. The basic animation style reminded me of a lot of the early morning cartoons that air on Disney and Disney Junior so there’s not a whole lot of detail that goes into it. There’s nothing offensive going on here because it’s good innocent fun. The DVD is now available and is priced to own.
