"All-new Disney series full of comedy, magic and adventure."
―Slogan of the series.

The Oz Kids is an American television animated fantasy comedy-drama series based on the Oz books and the 1939 film. 26 episodes were created and it was produced by Hyperion Pictures.

The two main characters of this series are both humans: Dot and Neddie, the children of Dorothy and Zeb. The major characters are Boris and Bela, the children of the Cowardly Lion, the Tin Boy, the son of the Tin Woodman, Frank the son of the Wizard of Oz, Scarecrow Jr., the son of the Scarecrow, Jack Pumpkinhead Jr., son of Jack Pumpkinhead, and Andrea, daughter of Glinda. Toto also makes occasional appearances, and was in fact the main reason for the adventure of the first episode, although it is unknown if this is the actual Toto, or a child of the original dog.

The faces of Dorothy and the rest of the parents are never shown, similar to the faces of adults in The Muppet Babies. It is also notable that no new parents are ever revealed, Dot and Neddie's father, for instance, is never shown.

The show differs from most babies show of this time as it stars the children of the original characters, instead of baby versions of the adults.
