Also known as the "Videophonic Sound" edition, this VHS of The Wizard of Oz came out in 1985, and remained in stores until the movie turned 50 years old, in 1989.


Now your entire family can enjoy the world's most enchanting film, in the complete screen version, with its magical kingdom of fun and surprises, right in your home! Judy Garland stars as Dorothy in search of the Wizard of Oz. Singing songs as legendary as the story itself, she's a delight in a performance that won her a special Academy Award and remains a lasting screen achievement.

Tossed "over the rainbow" by a Kansas twister, Dorothy finds herself in a very different land. She learns that the only person who can help her get home is the great and powerful Wizard of Oz, so, with three delightful friends and her little dog Toto, Dorothy sets off for the mysterious Emerald City pursued by the Wicked Witch of the West. Ray Bolger (The Scarecrow), Jack Haley (The Tin Man) and Bert Lahr (The Cowardly Lion) lead a perfectly chosen cast. The songs include the classic "Over the Rainbow," plus "We're Off to See the Wizard," "Ding Dong, the Witch is Dead," and more. A joy for children of every age, you'll love every minute of this wonderful movie classic.
