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!

By A Customer on February 3, 2003
THE WONDERFUL LAND OF OZ and JACK AND THE BEANSTALK are both directed by BARRY MAHON, a veteran exploitation film maker.
WONDERFUL LAND OF OZ stars the tone deaf Channy Mahon as TIP who fans of the books will know is really Princess Ozma enchanted as a boy. Channy Mahon "sings" several HIDEOUS tunes amidst sets that look like they were set up on a elementary school stage and created out of paste and construction paper. This movie was done on the cheap. Frankly that is what is fun about it. It is absolutely fascinating to watch because it is just truly terrible. I have NEVER seen anything that compares to the outright and unabashed CHEAPNESS of this flick. The songs are wretched and sung by people who just can't sing. The GUMP is the most wretchedly constructed prop ever. And the effects for when it flys...well they certainly are special.

JACK AND THE BEANSTALK has much better songs, although they still suck. And it looks a little bit more polished and not quite as cheap. It also thankfully does not star the uninspiring Channy Mahon. We do get to see the evil GIANT launch into a terrible little ditty called FE FI FO FUM at least three awful times.
The wonderful thing about this DVD is that it contains probably 20 odd trailers for bottom of the barrel childrens trash epics from the 60's and 70's...and maybe even the 50's.
These trailers have to be seen to be believed. MEXICAN IMPORTS like LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD AND THE MONSTERS must have employed a crew completely on drugs. The dubbing just in this trailer alone rivals any bad dubbing I have ever seen. Your jaw will drop when you see just how profoundly disturbing this trailer is. There are no words to describe my utter sense of wonder when I watch the trailers on this disc.

If Dungeons of Harrow had been a musical, watching that might-- MIGHT prepare you for Wonderful Land of Oz.

SEE the army of teenage 60s hotties in their "evil drum majorette" outfits!

SEE the talent-free Channy Mahon yowl his way through this "musical."

SEE the plywood nailed together in a configuration that vaguely suggests the outline of the Emerald City! (And every other location.)

See the community theater wicked witch (and Tin Man and Scarecrow and...).

If you love jaw-dropping cinema, if your favorite part of Game of Death was the first few minutes, if your idea of a good time is to repeatedly stammer "I-- I can't believe they even TRIED to do this!"

You will love Barry Mahon's The Wonderful Land of Oz.

Jack and the Beanstalk is the same drill, made with more effort, and far less ambitious-- and it lacks everything that makes "Oz" so hideously riveting.

A Kid's Review on January 23, 2003
This has to be one of the most interesting DVDs ever made! It not only has two examples of the kiddie matinee genre, but it also has about 20 trailers of other films of this type! The best is "The Secret of Magic Isalnd", which has an organ-playing cat, a villainous monkey, an all-bird choir practice, and more wackiness for the family! There are 3 cheap cartoons, a novelty short, and a half-hour condensation of "The Magic Land of Mother Goose", directed by Herschell "Blood Feast" Lewis! The films are cute and even charming.- Jamie Teller(13).
