Someone has nicely digitized the Oz Kids series and put them on YouTube. Here's a link to a search result page for their channel.

Don't say I didn't ever do anything for you.

NO WAY!!!
Thank you so so much, Jay!!! I have been waiting for this for so long! I've been buying the VHS tapes, but getting from there to digitalizing them, it was going to be a long long time (years!). Thank you very much again!!

Now that we're on this topic, may I ask you a question. I may have asked it a couple of years ago, but cannot find it.
It's about the tv episodes versus what was released on VHS.
I never quite understood how they organized that. Are the VHS compilations of episodes? Looking at my VHS boxes, I don't see anything like "Contains the following episodes: etc, etc." Or are some VHS tapes full new direct-to-video adventures that were never broadcasted?
Also, it's so hard for me to find the official list of episodes of the tv series. I can't believe it's not easily available. Do you have a link?
Thanks!
Carlo

As far as I'm aware, the VHS releases are collections of episodes edited together as movies. There were 26 episodes, and considering episodes were about 20 minutes, it seems all episodes are on the nine VHS releases, just now edited into story arc movies.

Thank you, Jay.
The tv episodes I believe is what's available in German on youtube. I was able to find I think 19 of them. I'll see in the coming months by watching the ones you just posted and then taking a look at these German episodes, I may be able to figure out an exact list of episodes and which were included in each American VHS.
Hey, one more thing. You may know. As far as I know the only DVD available of the Oz Kids has always been "The Little Wizard Stories" that has Santa Claus on the cover. It includes 3 episodes: "A Kidnapped Santa", "On The Ice Floe" and "Christmas in Oz". I'm guessing that "A Kidnapped Santa" may be the same as "Who Stole Santa". And "On The Ice Floe" my guess is that it may have been edited into one of the VHS tapes either "Who Stole Santa" or "Christmas In Oz" just based on the wintery theme. Do you have any idea?

Watch "Who Stole Santa?" then note that it's twice as long as "Christmas in Oz."

While discussing the Oz Kids series on the podcast, we've been looking into the chronology of the series. I can't find a list of the episodes that made up each of the VHS releases, but here's a list of the VHS tape releases in supposed chronological order:

Toto Lost In New York
The Nome Prince and the Magic Belt
Underground Adventure
Who Stole Santa? (made up of "A Kidnapped Santa" and "On the Ice Floe")
Christmas in Oz
Virtual Oz
Journey Beneath the Sea
The Monkey Prince
The Return of Mombi
