    If you buy this, you won't need to buy last year's release of "Journey Back to Oz" special edition. This collection gives you the ....Oz special edition dvd, with all the same extras, and two other Filmation Animated Features: Snow White Happily Ever After (with extras) and "A Snow White Christmas."
    It's great value for money, and your children will enjoy these classic cartoons done in Filmation's distinctive style of animation.
    The Journey Back to OZ DVD includes a feature commentary with Lou Scheimer and other production staff.
    Buy and enjoy.
    Amazon's price is great too!

    This company, Ink & Paint or BCI Entertainment, announced a Collector's Edition of "Happily Ever After", to be released in June 2006, but it never saw the light of day. It was most likely canceled, as a single DVD copy has never been found, and all online listings were automatically put on Out of Stock as soon as it was released. Well that Collector's Edition was finally discovered in this 3 disc "Storybook Tales" DVD set, along with two other Filmation releases.

    The long awaited collector's edition was a bit of a let down, because not only do we have to fork over the extra money for this set with two other movies you may or may not be interested in, instead of getting it by itself, but the interviews with the producers were so bad it was pretty sad. The executive producer lied all over the place about the production, and couldn't even admit it bombed at the box office with such a low return it not only bankrupted Filmation but also 1st National Film Corp. which had just formed 3 years prior. The interview with the screenwriter talked more about his job as a screenwriter than working on the film. The documentary on Filmation was equally annoying, calling Filmation one of the most respected companies in the business.

    The vocal auditions for actors for various roles was pretty neat, definitely the second best feature. The DVD-Rom features, the real shining star, include the full script, and the full press release. The DVD also includes new animated menus, and scenes that were inexplicably missing from 20th Century Fox's 2005 release are seamlessly re-insterted, giving us the first full uncut release. And the transfer is miles ahead of Fox's dvd which was blurry and grainy and looked like someone turned the contrast way up. This transfer, in comparison, is flawless, and with the uncut scenes, feels like watching the movie for the first time.

    As a child, we owned Journey Back To Oz on some kind of disc player (I'm not sure it was a lazer disc) and I watched it over and over and over again. Snow White Christmas was another favorite, I believe we used to rent it back in the day when you went to the store to do so. Now that I am a mother, I've wanted to share some of my favorites with my little girl. We found a tape copy of Snow White Christmas at a thrift shop (yes, we do own vcr's still!) and she fell in love with it. However our tape was apparantly warped. The first viewing was fine, but then there were severe lines through much of the middle of the movie. Since my daughter loved it so much, I began searching Amazon and other sites. Not knowing at first if it had ever been released on DVD, you can imagine my shock and dismay at finding it on Amazon on VHS for ... $80! I couldn't justify that kind of expenditure. Luckily an Ebay seach showed me that SWC had been released with two other movies on DVD ... and one happened to be another favorite I wanted to show my daughter (who happens to also love the original Wizard of Oz and Return To Oz starring Fairuza Balk from the 1980's) So, I ordered this with the knowledge she'd get a replacement on a movie she loved, and hopefully more.

    We have had these for three days now. She has watched Journey every night since it arrived. And now I have "If You're Gonna Be A Witch, Be A Witch" stuck in my head!

    So, why did I rate this only four stars?

    I don't know who to blame, and it's not the end of the world ... but I rated it so because of the DVD's packaging. When I opened it, the plastic inside was cracked. SWC had come lose in transit, and I am hoping it works because we've not tested it yet. I'll probably eventually put these into one of our sleeve cases, but I had to note the issue in the review.

    only bits and snatches of these programs when I was growing up. While "Happily Ever After"and "Snow White Christmas" were barely memorable, "Journey back to Oz" stuck in my mind for some reason. I was surprised to find they were on DVD after all this time. Sadly, "Happily Ever After" and "Snow White Christmas" seemed thrown together and somewhat silly, as though the makers were searching for ideas and could have been done a bit better even with what they had. I still admired what work went into the animation though the stories themselves did it somewhat poor justice. "Journey back to Oz" was more of a masterpiece despite what detractors may say about it, perhaps because of the star talent involved. It was a major special on TV at the time and more work was involved which gave this a much better quality than the others. One can see this in the way the characters looked and even the elephants looked a bit more real in the way they were depicted, as though someone took the time to study them. Certainly, I see very little for anyone to be embarrassed about in this one. It was a bit silly, yes, but some of the songs do grow on you after awhile. In this day and age, we still do need a bit of nostalgia.
