“Sometimes, you gotta get out of Kansas.”

On May 17, 2005, the special compilation album Best of the Muppets Featuring the Muppets’ Wizard of Oz was released through Walt Disney Records. This was the first album released through Disney after their acquisition of the Muppets in February 2004. The album mainly featured songs from the television movie The Muppets’ Wizard of Oz, starring Ashanti and Queen Latifah. A song from the film, “When I’m With You,” was nominated for an Emmy award, but lost to “Mary Jane/Mary Lane” from Reefer Madness. The album also featured standards from the Muppet catalogue, including “Mahna Mahna” and “Rainbow Connection.”
