Overview
Dorothy (Fairuza Balk) is back at home in Kansas after her first escapade in the land of Oz and unable to convince anyone that her adventures truly happened. Concerned, Auntie Em (Piper Laurie) takes Dorothy to the doctor, who plans to treat her with shock therapy.

While trying to escape the therapy, Dorothy and her now talking pet chicken, Billina, are propelled by a lightning storm back to Oz. But things are not as she left them. The Emerald City is under the rule of the evil Princess Mombi and the fiendish Nome King. The yellow brick road is broken, the City is a dirty slum and her friends, the Cowardly Lion and Tin Man have been turned to stone.

It's up to Dorothy and her new friends Tik Tok, a helpful robot, Jack, who has a pumpkin head and the Gump to save Oz. Join Dorothy on her exciting new adventures in her "Return To Oz."
