The Turkish Wizard of Oz has to go down in history as one of the most amazing remakes ever made. The film gets off to a quick start; once in Oz, Dorothy encounters a group of dwarfs dressed as toy solders, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Lion (a fat guy in a pair of brown pajamas with hair glued to it). The wicked witch pursues Dorothy by using a group of men dressed as Roman solders. Once they reach the wizard, they simply see a skull on a table in front of a fireplace.
A young girl named Aysecik lives on her parents' farm, when an animated tornado carries her and her dog Banju in their house to Rüyalar Ulkesinde (Dreamland). Seven Cüceler (dwarfs) (dressed like MGM Munchkin soldiers, only red and white) who assist the Good Witch of the North appear at various times to help. She meets a Scarecrow, an Iron Woodman, and a Cowardly Lion, and dances to music from what appears to be an invisible radio. They encounter fighting trees, a river, and a country of China dolls on their way to the Wizard, a ball of fire who sends them after the Wicked Witch who enslaves them. When the Wizard is unable to help Aysecik get home, they must journey again for help, encountering the China Country once more, and a legion of hammer-throwing cavemen.
