Warner Bros. Animation and Turner have teamed up to feature the series “Dorothy & the Wizard of Oz” and “Wacky Races” on the company’s second flagship international kids channel Boomerang.
In the U.S., the programs will be show exclusively on the U.S. streaming subscription service.
“Dorothy & the Wizard of Oz” is based on the classic book series and is set soon after Dorothy and her friends have defeated the Wicked Witch of the West. Following the original story, Queen Ozma has appointed Dorothy the Princess of Emerald City, which she tackles with enthusiasm, bravery and “farm girl feistiness.”
“Wacky Races” will serve as an overhaul of the Hanna-Barbera classic series and will see the return of the series’ classic racers and cars, including Penelope Pitshop, Peter Perfect, Dick Dastardly and more.
Both programs will launch on Boomerang’s international channels this June.
