Summary: Dorothy Gale is swept away to a magical land in a tornado and embarks on a quest to see the wizard who can help her return home. On her way she meets a scarecrow who needs a brain, a tin man who wants a heart, and a cowardly lion who desperately needs courage. They all hope the Wizard of Oz will help them, before the Wicked Witch of the West catches up with them
