Take a musical, fun-filled trip to "The Wonderful Land of Oz" (1969) when a boy named Tip and his magic jack-o-lantern-faced friend, Jack the Pumpkinhead, escape from the evil witch Mombi and head to the Emerald City. But oh no! The city is being invaded by an army of "naughty girls" led by bratty General Jinjur who wants to remove The Scarecrow from the throne. With the help of the Tin Man, Glinda the Good Fairy, a flying sofa, and a saucer-eyed creature called a Wogglebug, Tip comes to the Scarecrow's aid--until Mombi reveals a secret that will change everything in Oz. Full of colorful characters and wild Sid-and-Marty-Krofft-flavored art direction, this is a surprisingly delightful kiddie klassic filmed at a once-upon-a-time Florida amusement park! Then "Jack and the Beanstalk" (1970) comes to life when "Honest John, Used Cow Salesman" trades Jack's cow for some magical beans that grow into a sky-high stalk, carrying singing Jack up to a castle in the clouds complete with a "Fee-Fi-Fo-Fumming" giant and a mechanical hen that lays golden eggs. Go back to those wonderful days of the kiddie matinee when the Saturday afternoon show was full of raucous schoolkids and all seats cost only 25 cents!
