"Anthology of Interest II" is an episode of the animated series Futurama. In it, the crew uses Professor Farnsworth's What-If machine to view some interesting scenarios. One of the segments that results from this, "Wizzin'", is a parody of The Wizard of Oz.

"Wizzin" synopsis

Leela (Katey Sagal) wants to see her true home. But when the Professor (Billy West) pulls the lever on the What-if Machine, he whacks her in the head, and she falls to the floor unconscious.

She wakes up at the helm of the Planet Express ship, which is caught in a tornado. It crash lands in a technicolor wonderland, crushing the Man-Witch of the West, Scruffy (David Herman). The Cute Witch of the North, Amy (Lauren Tom), tells her that she should seek out the Professor, who lives in the Emerald Laboratory down Martin Luther King Boulevard, which is constructed from yellow brick.

While traveling, she meets a scarecrow, Fry (Billy West), a mechanical man, Bender (John DiMaggio), and "the other guy", Zoidberg (Billy West). The Wicked Witch, Mom (Tress MacNeille), sends her winged monkeys, Walt (Maurice LaMarche), Larry (David Herman), and Igner (John DiMaggio), to kidnap Leela and her friends. The Wicked Witch always wanted a daughter, and offers to take Leela in. Leela accepts, and as part of a celebration, Bender uncorks a bottle of champagne. Under tremendous pressure, the champagne shoots out of the bottle and lands on the Wicked Witch, causing her to melt.

Falling back to the original plan, the crew make their way to the Emerald Laboratory. There they meet the great and forgetful Professor. The Professor tells Leela that she can go home by clicking her ruby boots together and wishing to go home. She says: "There's no place like... I wanna be a witch!". She dons witch clothes and turns the Professor, the scarecrow, and the robot into frogs. Her reign of terror is cut short by Zoidberg, who has encountered a problem with the Emerald Laboratory's upstairs toilet, and accidentally splashes water on her. As she melts in the dream world, she wakes up back in the Planet Express building, the professor wanting to harvest Leela's organs.
