Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz is a American preschool animated series created by Warner Bros. studios. Episodes are eleven minutes and there are so far three seasons of twenty episodes apiece.

In Canada it broadcasts on Treehouse and Teletoon.

Legacy

By the end of the third season with sixty episodes it surpasses the 52-episode count of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (anime), although since episodes are half the length, the actual time of the series is still less.

Official Trailer

Since Warner Brothers owns the copyright to the 1939 film, this series acts as a sequel to it with the inclusion of the Ruby Slippers.

The series premiered in Austraila on June 26th 2017 as the first section of the first episode was released digitally in the US for the Boomerang app. That section is currently free and does not require a subscription. This first episode delves into the story without much pretense except that Dorothy went back to Oz and became a princess. A further episode might show her meeting Ozma for the first time and how Ozma ascended the throne (The Marvelous Land of Oz).

For non-subcribers, the series has also been released to DVD.

In Canada, it has broadcast on Treehouse since 2019 and Teletoon since 2020.

Description

(from Animation World Network ) The series is based on the classic L. Frank Baum book series, and is set soon after Dorothy and her friends have defeated the Wicked Witch of the West. Following the original story, Queen Ozma has appointed Dorothy the Princess of Emerald City and, practically born for the role, Dorothy tackles her royal duties with enthusiasm, bravery and farm girl feistiness.

But it’s also a whole lot of responsibility, because Oz is pretty chaotic. There are Witches, Wizards, Munchkins, Flying Monkeys and a whole menagerie of mystical creatures. More often than not, magic falls into the wrong hands and that’s where Dorothy comes in. As Princess of Emerald City, Dorothy feels responsible to rein in the chaos. She loves to track down whichever magical person, place or thing is causing mischief in Oz and put a stop to it.
