Tales of The Wizard of Oz was a 1961 animated television series, produced by Crawley Films for Videocrafts (later known as Videocraft and ultimately Rankin/Bass). This was the second animated series produced by the studio, and the first by Rankin/Bass to feature traditional animation.

The series featured stories derived from characters created in L. Frank Baum's book The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Several characters were given additional names, including Dandy Lion, Rusty Tin Man, and Socrates the Scarecrow.
