Positive messages about self esteem and empowerment. Hardly any white representation though most characters are different creatures/different colors. Some may be turned off by singing every three minutes. Storylines could be stronger without singing and better focus on dialogue/character development

Is It Any Good?

With punch, vibrant color, and lots of heart, the musical series breathes new life into the land of Oz. Dee & Friends in Oz is engaging and energetic, featuring modern pop and R&B beats, with empowering lyrics that feel timeless. Kids who love music will find themselves singing and dancing to confidence-boosting tunes that won't alienate parents. In fact, you may find yourself wishing you had heard similar advice as a child! While some aspects of Oz may seem familiar at first glance, the show infuses the world with color, characters, and details -- the yellow brick road, for example, is now as colorful as Dee's glistening skirt.

An enticing watch-together show, Dee & Friends in Oz provides good fun -- and thought -- for the entire family.
