The Phantom Tollbooth


Dirs. Chuck Jones, Abe Levitow. 1970, 90 mins. 35mm. With voices of Butch Patrick, Mel Blanc. Bookended by live-action sequences and featuring a stellar voice cast, The Phantom Tollbooth is Chuck Jones’s only original feature-length animated film, based on Norton Juster’s much-loved children’s book of the same name. On the streets of San Francisco, a boy named Milo enters a “phantom tollbooth” that takes him into a magical cartoon world, where he encounters warring kingdoms, demons, princesses, and a ticking dog named Tock.
