Film/JourneyBackToOz is a 1974 (although completed in 1971) {{Creator/Filmation}} feature-film, meant to be the official sequel to the 1939 TheWizardOfOz. It's very, ''very'' loosely based off of L. Frank Baum's ''The Marvelous Land of Oz,'' though Baum is not given any writing credit.

After Dorothy is knocked unconscious immediately prior to a tornado, she awakens to find herself and Toto in Oz once again. After meeting Jack Pumpkinhead, she learns that the WickedWitch, Mombi, plans to [[TakeOverTheWorld Take Over Oz]] by use elephants. She and Jack flee Mombi's home and try to warn The Scarecrow (now the king of Oz), meeting a talking wooden horse named Woodenhead Stallion. Unfortunately, the scarecrow is captured by Mombi, along with Toto, and the trio try to seek help from the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion, both of whom are too afraid to help them. But Glinda tells Dorothy that she can save Oz herself, with her new friends and a little of [[ThePowerOfLove her own special magic.]]

!!Tropes included:

* CatsAreMean: Mombi's cat
* CowardlyLion: Jack Pumpkin, ironically, the Cowardly Lion himself has become even more cowardly than he was originally, abandoning his friends for his own well-being
* DarkerAndEdgier: Well at least more depressing, since the Lion and Tin Man aren't helping, [[TookALevelInJerkass becoming more cowardly than their original selves]] [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness especially the Tin Man]]
* DeadpanSnarker: Woodenhead Stallion has shades of this
* DirtyCoward: The Tin Man and Cowardly Lion inexplicably.
* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler: Jack Pumpkinhead]]
* {{Hammerspace}}: The tiny box Glinda gives Dorothy contains [[spoiler:a ''plethora'' of mice.]]
* KarmicDeath: [[spoiler:Mombi transforms herself into a flower with poisonous thorns to avoid being caught by Dorothy and co. This allows her to be trampled to death by her own elephants.]]
* NoOntologicalInertia: After Mombi's defeat, Oz returns to normal and all her magic spells reverse. [[spoiler:Including the one that was keeping Pumpkinhead alive.]]
* NonHumanSidekick: Dorothy has Pumpkin and Woodenhead (and Toto for a little while), while Mombi has her cat and crow.
* LimitedAnimation: What else do you expect from {{Creator/Filmation}}?
* LovableCoward: Jack Pumpkinhead. Ironically the Cowardly Lion himself is not, [[TookALevelInJerkass becoming far more cowardly than he already was]]
* OOCIsSeriousBusiness: While the Cowardly Lion being cowardly is in character, the Tin Man [[TookALevelInJerkass trying to take care of his own hide rather than save his friend, the Scarecrow]] is very unexpected from someone as compassionate as him.
* SwissArmyTears: [[spoiler:Pumpkinhead comes back to life after Dorothy cries on him]]
* TheMusical
** ThatRemindsMeOfASong
* ThePowerOfLove
* TookALevelInJerkass: When the Scarecrow gets kidnapped, you'd expect that the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion would try and help their friend right? Wrong, both have taken a level in cowardice, especially the Tin Man who [[OOCISSeriousBusiness is more concerned about his well-being than his friends' safety]]. Way to make the story dreary movie
* VillainSong: "If You're Gonna Be a Witch, Be a Witch"
* YouDontLookLikeYou: Dorothy and Glinda. But mostly Glinda.
