Rinkitink in Oz

Synopsis

Rinkitink of Oz is a tale of high adventure beginning in the islands of the Nonestic Ocean and eventually culminating in the darkness of the Nome King's Caverns. Rinkitink is the fun-loving runaway king of his eponomous land who accompanied by his beast of burden, a surly talking goat named Bilbil, makes his way to the beautiful and peaceful island of Pingaree.
His timing, however, is poor for soon after his arrival the island is overrun by a marauding band of warriors who loot and pillage the entire island and carry all its inhabitants off to slavery on the twin islands of Regos and Coregos. Rinkitink, Bilbil, and the young Prince of Pingaree, Inga, escape capture and with the the help of three magic pearls they set out to rescue the Pingareeans and Inga's father and mother, King Kitticut and Queen Garee.
After some successes and failures, they ultimately win the day and free all the slaves on the islands. But not before the wicked King Gos and Queen Cor escape with King Kitticut and Queen Garee as hostages.
The action then shifts to the Nome King's Caverns. Inga and Rinkitink join forces with Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz to once more confront the Nomes in the dramatic conclusion to this tale of high adventure in the remoter regions of Oz.
