Disney's popular new Oz film, Oz The Great and Powerful, is being released to the home entertainment market on Blu-ray today. To celebrate the new Oz here is something old—from the Off To See the Wizard TV series from 1967-1968, inspired in turn by the 1939 MGM classic, The Wizard of Oz. The new film certainly emphasizes the Wizard's roots as a carnival magician, and I like the way the magic-kit premium described in this magazine ad brings things back to magic tricks. Be sure and click on the image to see the whole two-page spread—and stay tuned to Tulgey Wood for more on this mostly forgotten television program in the future.
