When tragedy strikes the family, it’s Crocket who comes to the rescue and restores peace and happiness.

Rather than adapt a later or create a new Oz story, this production has Dorothy still in posession of the shoes, and she clings to an apple tree during a tornado which takes her back to Oz. The Scarecrow, Tin Woodman, and Lion (using the names created for the nearly-abstract television series, Tales of the Wizard of Oz, from which this was derived) have had their MGM gifts destroyed by the restored Wicked Witch, and the four proceed to the Wizard for help, who is ineffectual as usual.

The Ballad of Smokey the Bear tells the story, or a story of Smokey the Bear. The premise has Smokey’s big brother, voiced by James Cagney, telling the story of how his brother got his name. It’s a long winded and rambling tale that has very little Smokey and a great deal of a cranky Jimmy. The story has the animals trying to find out who set a forest fire and is poisoning the water. Its not giving anything away to say it’s an escaped circus gorilla that smokes cigars.

Another strange cartoon from the mind of Rick and Morty co-creator Justin Roiland. Honestly just watch it because my words won't do it justice.

In 1962, Jay Ward created the album "A Salute to Moosylvania", a set-up of Jazz Festival albums that was also a companion to his "Moosylvania for Statehood" campaign. This is the first song on the album, the anthem for fictional state.

All eight episodes of Mr Sprinkles, a strange and disturbing cartoon series from Acceptable.TV and created by Justin Roiland. He would later co-create Rick and Morty and it doesn't take much time watching to see his fingerprints all over it.
