The Phantom Tollbooth (1970, USA)
A disenchanted young boy returns home one day to find a strange tollbooth in his house, he enters through to discover a strange and imaginative world.


After Warner Bros’ classic cartoon department closed, a now independent Chuck Jones created his own studio with a production deal by MGM creating The Grinch, The Dot and the Line, and a series of Jones-directed Tom and Jerry cartoons. For his one feature film Chuck Jones chose to adapt Norton Juster’s strange Alice in Wonderland-like fable of wordplay and idioms, The Phantom Tollbooth, using both animation and live-action to tell the story. Jones originally produced the film in the end of the 60′s, but due to management changes and eternal studio troubles at MGM it was dumped into kids matinees in 1970. Norton Juster himself hated Jones’ adaptation and was further upset when the film was well-reviewed.


Can I find this? Sure. Warner Archive has available Phantom Tollbooth on MOD DVD and their digital services, recently remastered from Warner’s archives. No Blu-Ray is planned at this time.
