* RandomEventsPlot: Most everything that happens in the story either comes out of nowhere or has virtually no impact on aynthing that happens afterwards. Perhaps the best example is when the main characters accidentally fly out of Oz, land in a jackdaw nest, use some magical wish-granting pills to fly back to Oz, but forget to take the pills with them. What does this episode add to the story? The world may never know.

** Averted in ''Anime/TheWonderfulWizardOfOz'', in which [[TomboyPrincess Ozma]] retains much of Tip's personality and Dorothy frequently must reign her in.

* DidntThinkThisThrough: Jinjur's plan to lead feminist revolts in all the kingdoms ran into the slight snag that one of them was already completely matriarchal, heavily militarized, and good friends with the others. Oops.

* PragmaticAdaptation: Inverted; it's been suggested that, following the great success of ''The Wonderful Wizard of Oz''[='=]s stage adaptation, Baum wrote this sequel with one eye on what would look good on stage. The element that's most often singled out is the Army of Revolt, composed of good-looking women whose uniforms are described in detail. Another element that may have been affected by the stage prospects is Tip turning out to really be female, since in a stage production a young boy would be played by a woman anyway.
** Not to mention that it actually worked considering that there was a stage musical version in 1981.

anyway. The emphasis on the Tin Man and the Scarecrow at the expense of the Lion and Dorothy reflects which characters had been most successful on stage. (In the event, the stage adaptation that it actually worked considering that there followed a year later was a stage musical version in 1981. flop, at least partly because many of the people and elements that had made the first show such a success were unavailable because the show was still running.)
