Journey Back to Oz is an animated sequel to the MGM film The Wizard of Oz and was released in 1974 by Filmation. Unlike the MGM film, Aunt Em and Uncle Henry have one farmhand who does not have an alter ego in Oz.
In this cartoon film, Dorothy and Toto return to the Magical Land of Oz. The Scarecrow is now king of the Emerald City and an old Witch named Mombi is trying to take over Oz and overthrow the Scarecrow with her army of angry green elephants.
It featured a distinguished vocal cast:
- Liza Minnelli as Dorothy Gale
- Mickey Rooney as the Scarecrow
- Danny Thomas as the Tin Woodman (speaking)
- Milton Berle as the Cowardly Lion (speaking)
- Ethel Merman as the Mombi
- Margaret Hamilton as Aunt Em
- Paul Ford as Uncle Henry
- Larry Storch as Amos (Aunt Em and Uncle Henry's farmhand) / Tin Woodman (singing)
- Jack E. Leonard as the Signpost
- Paul Lynde as Pumpkinhead
- Herschel Bernardi as Woodenhead Stallion III / Cowardly Lion (singing)
- Mel Blanc as Mombi's crow
The soundtrack was released in 1980. The songs were:
- A Faraway Land: Dorothy
- Signpost Song: The Signpost
- Keep A Happy Thought: Dorothy
- The Horse on the Carousel: Woodenhead Stallion III
- B-R-A-N-E: Scarecrow
- An Elephant Never Forgets: Mombi
