What's the name of that movie that's like wizard of oz but not wizard of oz?

It has a Dorothy type character and a witch and all the other characters in it. It's got monkey type creatures in it that have wheels for feet. A scarecrow guy that's got a pumpkin for a head. The witch has different type of heads that she can put on. They go to this cave type place and the cave asks dorothy to pick just one item to find her friend. Anybody have a clue?

    It was Return to Oz. In 1985, Disney attempted to make a sequel to the 1939 MGM Film by combining two later Oz books (The Land of Oz and Ozma of Oz) into one story. It is not really true to either of the books, but does have a Baum-esk journey storyline. The beginning is a little creepy - Dorothy gets sent to a mental hospital for shock treatments...When Dorothy gets to Oz, everything, even the Yellow Brick Road, is in chaos. Everyone in the Emerald City has been turned to stone.

    In her journey, she meets TikTok the machine man (completely invented by L. Frank Baum WAY before robots), Billina a chicken from her Kansas farm, Princess Mombi (a combo of the evil witch Mombi and Princess Langwidere in the books), the evil Nome King, the flying Gump, and Jack Pumpkin head. Want to be really confused? In Return to Oz, Jack refers to Ozma (who has been confined to a mirror by the evil Mombi) as his real "mom." In The Land of Oz, Ozma was transformed into a boy named Tip so she/he could not become the rightful ruler of Oz. As a boy, she made Jack Pumpkinhead and he accompanied Tip on his journey to the Emerald City.

    The Oz books are full of things like this. There are 14 original ones by L.Frank Baum and over 40 in the series

    Topper (with Cary Grant and Constance Bennett) used to be black and white, then later colorized. Also, I feel an historical Merle Oberon with Lawrence Olivier known as Divorce of Lady X (1938). I have the fashioned Invaders from Mars that I noticed in black and white however has now been colorized. I choose the black & white models.

    It's "TheWiz" - made in the late 1970's with Michael Jackson as the Scarecrow, Diana Ross as Dorothy and Richard Pryor as the Wiz.
