I actually forget the name of the movie (I am shocking with names). It was
about a girl (dorothy?) who went to magic land where had to travel to OZ
along a yellow brick road. She goes with her dog Todo and meets up with
other characters (tinman, strawman and the cowardly lion). After much
"journeying" they get to OZ only to have her wake up. Exactly at the place
she started.

The specific reference is one of the the things they say/sing/chant along
the way. "Lions, and Tigers and Bears - oh my!" or something similar.
Anyway if you know the film you can probably guess the reference ;)
