Somewhere over the Rainbow…

A brand new modern twist on the beloved classic series from L. Frank Baum

Premieres 16 October on Boomerang

This October, follow the yellow brick road to all-new adventures with Dorothy, an eight-year old girl from Kansas, who alongside her little dog Toto and best friends Scarecrow, Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion, has just defeated the Wicked Witch of the West and is ready to embark on exciting new quests in the land of Oz. Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz premieres 16 October on Boomerang.

Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz is an uplifting comedic fantasy series based on the iconic L. Frank Baum book series. Following the original story, Queen Ozma has appointed Dorothy the Princess of Emerald City, and has tasked her with the quest to rid Oz of evil and restore peace to the land. Armed with a pair of magical and mysterious ruby slippers, Dorothy tackles her royal duties with enthusiasm, bravery and farm girl feistiness.

Being Princess of Oz carries a whole lot of responsibility, and it’s not always easy: make a mistake in Kansas and it’s usually not a big deal; make a mistake in Oz and a Wicked Witch or two comes after you. This October on Boomerang, cheer on Dorothy, her little dog Toto, Scarecrow, Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion as they team up to conquer Munchkins, Witches, Wizards, Flying Monkeys and a whole menagerie of mystical creatures in this smart, comedic show about friendship and adventure.

Produced by Warner Bros. Animation with 80? all-new 11-minute episodes and featuring the Academy Award-Winning song “Over the Rainbow” from the hit 1939 film, the all-new series Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz premieres exclusively on Boomerang on 16 October at 19:35.
