'Legends of Oz: Dorothy's Return': First look at new adventure, starring Lea Michele -- EXCLUSIVE

DOROTHY-OZ-01

Sure, there’s no place like home — but who would turn down a chance to go back to the merry old land of Oz?

Enter Legends of Oz: Dorothy’s Return, a 3-D animated musical based on Roger Stanton Baum’s 1989 novel Dorothy of Oz. (And yes, Roger is one of those Baums; original Oz author L. Frank was his great-grandfather.) The story follows the heroic Dorothy Gale (Lea Michele) back to the beloved fantasy land, where she and her pals — the Scarecrow (Dan Aykroyd), the Cowardly Lion (Jim Belushi), the Tin Man (Kelsey Grammer), and Glinda (Bernadette Peters) must face a wicked new villain: the Jester (Martin Short.)

The film won’t hit theaters for another few months — but you can get a first glimpse at it in the four addition exclusive images below. (Unfortunately, you’ll just have to imagine any Lea/Bernadette duets for now.)

'My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic': Welcome to Equestria, Weird Al! EXCLUSIVE

Can Pinkie Pie’s party-planning skills hold a candle to those of new pony-about-town Cheese Sandwich — a fun-loving horse voiced by the one and only Weird Al Yankovic?

Spoiler alert: In this contest, everybody wins, though it might not seem that way from this heart-tugging exclusive clip.

First clip from 'The Pirate Fairy': Christina Hendricks is mixing something magical -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

What if Joan Holloway Harris morphed into a spunky brunette fairy? Well, she’d sound something like Never Land resident Zarina — a winged dust-keeper voiced by Mad Men star Christina Hendricks.

Zarina is the star of Disney’s upcoming straight-to-Blu-ray film The Pirate Fairy, which follows the titular sprite’s adventures after she decides to ditch Pixie Hollow for a pirate ship — and gets to know a two-handed cabin boy named James who will one day be known as Captain Hook. Also: He’s voiced by Tom Hiddleston. It’s like the Internet wrote this movie.

Catch your first glimpse at Zarina in action by watching this exclusive clip, in which Z shows Tinker Bell (Arrested Development‘s Mae Whitman) her mad dust-mixing skills. Bet she’d also make a killer fairy martini if pressed.

'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles': Who is that masked man? Why, it's Casey Jones! EXCLUSIVE

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles returns to Nickelodeon with all-new episodes on Feb. 2, as well as a nice surprise for old-school TMNT fans: Recurring Turtle ally Casey Jones is going full masked vigilante.

In the original 1987 animated series, Jones was a violent, Rorschach-esque crime fighter who treated murderers and litterbugs with equal equal disdain and never removed his iconic hockey mask. Nickelodeon’s slightly kinder, gentler Casey is a pal of April O’Neil’s who speaks with Josh Peck’s voice and generally prefers to show his face — at least, until he decides it’s time to take a stand against “pure evil” in Sunday’s episode, titled “The Good, The Bad, and Casey Jones.”

Watch Casey in action in the clip below, which also features his reluctant partner Raphael (Sean Astin) — and some seriously impressive subway rail-skating. Cowabunga!

Get a glimpse at Nickelodeon's newest preschool series, 'Wallykazam!' -- EXCLUSIVE

The future of edutainment is now: On Feb. 3, Nickelodeon debuts a new preschool literacy series called Wallykazam! The show, created by Emmy-winning writer Adam Petlzman (Blue’s Clues, The Backyardigans) follows a troll named Wally and his pet dragon, Norville, as they make words come to life onscreen — teaching little ones skills like letter and sound identification, rhyming, vocabulary development and comprehension strategies. It’s also pretty darn cute — and as a bonus for parents, the series’ first season will also include guest turns by stars like “Weird Al” Yankovic, Seinfeld‘s John O’Hurley, and SNL‘s Vanessa Bayer.

Catch a glimpse of the show — and one very Minion-like hamster — in the exclusive clip below.

Shaquille O'Neal gets animated (and does stand-up) on 'Uncle Grandpa' -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

It’s no Kazaam, but former NBA star Shaquille O’Neal will lend his unmistakable voice to Tuesday’s episode of Uncle Grandpa, the new Cartoon Network series about a magical weirdo who is everyone in the world’s uncle and grandpa (because, obviously).

In the episode, Shaq pops up as himself, albeit animated and with dreams of becoming a stand-up comic. When Uncle Grandpa stumbles across Shaq in the middle of his set, he enlists the basketball superstar to help stop a robot from destroying the neighborhood (because, again, obviously).  READ FULL STORY

'My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic': Get a glimpse at Discord's very first solo! EXCLUSIVE

Gird yourselves, Equestrians: This week on My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic, Discord is back. This time, though, the onetime villain is relatively benign — he’s suffering from a bad case of the sniffles, and all he wants is for Twilight Sparkle to take care of him. She agrees… but naturally starts to regret that decision once Discord begins making a series of increasingly ridiculous demands. Like what? Discord is glad you asked — and happy to answer in song:

'My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic': Rainbow Dash is going for the gold -- EXCLUSIVE

In three weeks, human athletes from around the globe will gather in Sochi to compete in the ultimate competition: the Olympics. In Equestria, however, the pony equivalent of all that excitement begins tomorrow. This Saturday’s new My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic finds Rainbow Dash and her pals traveling to Rainbow Falls, where they’re set to compete in the qualifying round of the Equestria Games.

There’s just one problem: As The Hub Network’s official episode description puts it, Rainbow and company soon realize “that the competition definitely has a hoof up on them.” Things get even more complicated when the fast-flying pony gets a tempting offer to join Cloudsdale’s elite flying squad. Will she accept — and leave her friends in the dust?
