* 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".

Added DiffLines:

* GettingCrapPastTheRadar: The Lion and Evillene using the curses "hell" and "ass" in two separate scenes surprisingly didn't cost the telecast a G rating.
