That movie was in 1985, not the '70s--I meant to correct that before
I sent the message. This might easily be confusing as there WAS an
earlier _Return to Oz_ cartoon, which I think probably appeared in
the 70s, and it was not very good. I think it attempted to follow the
'39 movie, rather than the books, but I don't recall it very well.
