* AgeLift: The Tin Man seems noticeably younger here than in the movie or original Broadway versions.[[note]]Tiger Hayes and Nipsey Russel were both in their 60s when they played the Tin Man on Broadway and in the movie, respectively, while Ne-Yo was only 36 when playing him on NBC.[[/note]] The actors of Dorothy's other companions were older than their Broadway and movie predecessors, but this might not look as apparent to the average viewer.

* AudioDescription: NBC outfitted the premiere broadcast with optional Descriptive Video Service, a first for live TV programming. Unfortunately, the DVD provides no such luxury.

* CostumePorn: Nearly nonstop. The original Broadway and NBC versions even won a Tony and an Emmy, respectively, for Best/Outstanding Costume Design. (The movie earned a nomination in the corresponding Oscar category, but lost to ''Literature/DeathOfTheNile''.)

* BeautyEqualsGoodness: Downplayed rather heavily compared to the play and the movie. Evillene has undergone some AdaptationalAttractiveness, as mentioned above. Additionally, the Poppies appear quite alluring, until they turn those who come near into their servants - A Munchkin who warns Dorothy about the Poppies outright admits that sometimes beautiful things can prove deadly. All that being said, Glinda the Good Witch of the South (played by Uzo Aduba) still seems regarded as the most gorgeous witch in Oz, judging by Dorothy's awestruck exclamation of, "She is beautiful!", when she sees Glinda descend from the sky to help her.

Added DiffLines:

* {{Autotune}}: The soundtrack makes questionably necessary use of this. It sounds especially evident when Dorothy first joins in "We Got It".
