A nasty neighbor tries to have Dorothy's dog, Toto, put to sleep, so she takes her dog and decides to run away. A cyclone appears and carries her to the magical land of Oz. Wishing to return, she begins to travel to the Emerald City where a great wizard lives. On her way to the City, she meets a Scarecrow who needs a brain, a Tin Man who wants a heart, and a Cowardly Lion who desperately needs courage. All hope the mighty Wizard will help them, before the Wicked Witch of the West catches up with them.
