In the title episode, Marina gets swept up into a windstorm and lands in Oz where she meets Glinda the Good Witch played by Sarah Chalke (Scrubs), befriends a Scarecrow (Twist), a Tin Woods-Woman (Kiki), and a Lion (Shout). They set off on a journey to find the Wizard of Song (Jason Mraz) so he can help Marina get back home. In addition, preschoolers can enjoy two bonus episodes from the hit live-action series.

The Fresh Beat Band is a group of four friends that love to dance and sing throughout each episode. To me, the songs are catchy and make young viewers get up and dance! I enjoyed watching “The Wizard of Song” with my son. It’s based on the classic movie, “The Wizard of Oz”, but the Fresh Beat Band put a nice spin on it! It was entertaining to see how they journeyed to see the Wizard, staying away from the Bad Witch along the way.
My 2 year old liked it, and I think it’d also be suitable for older kids…like up to 10 years old or more!
