The Phantom Tollbooth
DIRECTOR: CHUCK JONES, ABE LEVITOW, AND DAVID MONAHAN
CAST: BUTCH PATRICK, HANS CONRIED, MEL BLANC
Nothing to do in the doldrums? Perk yourself up with this live action/ animation hybrid courtesy legendary animator Chuck Jones, adapting Norman Juster’s beloved children’s book in what would be his only feature-length film. Bored and brooding Milo, strolling the San Francisco streets, pops into the titular tollbooth and emerges in a mind-bending animated alternate universe that operates by its own surreal set of rules.
