THE PHANTOM TOLLBOOTH
1970, Warner Bros., 90 min, USA, Dir: Chuck Jones, Abe Levitow

The classic children's adventure novel written by Norton Juster and illustrated by Jules Feiffer comes to life in this Chuck Jones (“What's Opera, Doc?”) musical. Butch Patrick (“The Munsters”) plays Milo, a bored city kid who receives a mysterious gift of a magical tollbooth. Entering it, he finds himself transported from a live-action universe to a psychedelic animated one, then thrust into a series of far-out adventures including rescuing the Princesses Rhyme and Reason from the Castle in the Air. Voices supplied by voice-over legends Mel Blanc, Daws Butler and June Foray.
