The Wonderful Galaxy of Oz

The Wonderful Galaxy of Oz is a 1990 futuristic adaptation of the classic story The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. It was originally released in the 1990s in Japan as a television series, Space Oz no Bōken (スペースオズの冒険, Adventures of Space Oz), and consists of 26 episodes. The plot parallels the original but imposes a science fiction theme. The U.S. version is a highly truncated (76 minutes) and dubbed version of the original.

Plot

In the year 2060, eight-year-old Dorothy and her dog are mysteriously swept off their planet into the wonderful, magical Galaxy of Oz. An evil witch, Gloomhilda, once ruled the Galaxy through fear and terror but was driven out by the good Dr. Oz. Now, Gloomhilda has amassed an army on the outskirts of the galaxy and is preparing to win back her empire. Her sneak attack fails due to Dorothy's unexpected arrival.

However, Dr. Oz knows Gloomhilda will return. He has a plan which will free the Galaxy of the wickedness of Gloomhilda forever. Legend tells of three crystals, the Crystal of Love, the Crystal of Wisdom, and the Crystal of Courage. These crystals were spread throughout the Galaxy and lost hundreds of years ago.

According to the legend, whoever possesses all three crystals will rule the Galaxy of Oz for all Eternity. Under the guidance of Dr. Oz, Dorothy and an assortment of "heroes" set out to scour the Galaxy in search of the three magical crystals.
