A cyclone hits, and Dorothy is whisked from the flat plains of Kansas to the colorful and exciting land of Oz! Dorothy must travel to the Emerald City to see the Wizard of Oz, for only he has the magical power to help her return home again. Along the way, she is joined by the Scarecrow, the Tin Woodman, and the cowardly Lion, who also seek the help of the Wizard's great magic.

The journey along the yellow brick road is filled with danger and adventure, but at last Dorothy and her friends meet the wonderful Wizard. But none of the four travelers' requests will be granted until the Wicked Witch of the West is destroyed.
