Galaxy of Oz

The Wonderful Galaxy of Oz, known in Japan as Space Oz no Bōken (スペースオズの冒険, 'Adventures of Space Oz'), is a Japanese Anime TV series created by Enoki Films.

It is an alternate Oz re-imagining of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz set in a futuristic outer space setting. Rather than being a land, Oz is now a whole galaxy which must be navigated by spaceship. It aired for a total of 26 episodes between 5 October 1992 – 4 April 1993 on TV Tokyo.

Unlike the previous The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (anime) which Enoki currently has the Japanese rights to, episodes were never entirely dubbed into English except for a heavily edited 75-minute film released in 1996. The Enoki USA division went defunct in 2010, so it is unclear if there could possibly be a further authorized translation. There was however an Arabic dub of all episodes that is believed to have aired in Qatar.

(Info taken from the production website)

In the year 2060, eight year old Dorothy Gale and here genetically enhanced dog, Talk-Talk, are mysteriously swept off the planet New Kansas and Talk-Talk find themselves in a strange, new Galaxy, far from home.

The wonderful, magical GALAXY OF OZ!

Dorothy's arrival could not have come at a better time! An evil witch named Gloomhilda once ruled the magical Galaxy through fear and terror. The good Dr. Oz used science to drive her out. Now, Gloomhilda has amassed an army on the outskirts of the GALAXY and is preparing to win back her empire.

Thanks to Dorothy's unexpected arrival, Gloomhilda's sneak attack fails. However, the wise and learned man, Dr. Oz knows Gloomhilda will return and he also knows that next time they might not be so lucky!

The Wizard of Oz has a plan which will free the GALAXY of the wickedness of Gloomhilda for all time. Legend tells of three magical Crystals, the Crystal of LOVE, the Crystal of WISDOM, and the Crystal of COURAGE. These magic Crystals were spread throughout the GALAXY and lost hundreds of years ago. According to the legend, whoever possesses all three Crystals will rule the GALAXY OF OZ for all Eternity!

Under the guidance of Dr. Oz, Dorothy and the most unlikely assortment of "heroes" you've ever met, set out to scour the GALAXY in search of the Three Magical Crystals. Unfortunately, Gloomhilda also knows of the ancient legend. She and her evil Skeezers will stop at nothing to possess the magical Crystals and regain her lost kingdom!

THE GALAXY ADVENTURES OF OZ is a race between good and evil, between science and sorcery! The stakes are enormous, the danger and adventure non-stop!
