Tales of the Wizard of Oz is a 1961 animated television series produced by Crawley Films for Videocraft (later known as Rankin/Bass Productions). This is the second animated series produced by the studio, and the first by Rankin/Bass to feature traditional animation.[1]


The series features stories derived from characters created in L. Frank Baum's 1900 novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Several characters are given additional names, including Dandy the Cowardly Lion, Rusty the Tin Man, and Socrates the Scarecrow. In this adaptation, rather than being dropped by a tornado, Dorothy and Toto are blown in from Kansas through a hole cut out of the landscape.

Each episode is a brief vignette about an adventure that the characters are involved in, often centring around the Wizard's attempts to fulfil the characters' wishes.

Artistic renditions of the Oz characters created for this series were later featured in the hour-long television special Return to Oz. The series was also adapted to a comic book for a one-shot issue in Dell's Four Color #1308 (March–May 1962).

As of 2018, this series has yet to be released on DVD. Coincidentally, both this series and Filmation's own animated project, Journey Back to Oz (which began production one year later and was ultimately finished in 1971), are now owned by the same company, Universal Studios.

In October 2010, the series went into rotation on the Retro Television Network.
