The Phantom Tollbooth

The Phantom Tollbooth is the only feature-length film that Chuck Jones directed. Based on Norton Juster’s beloved 1961 children’s book, it contains some of Jones’s most beautiful artwork. In the film, Milo’s discovery of a tollbooth with a magical portal catapults him into the Kingdom of Wisdom, leaving behind his dreary lonely life in the ‘real’ world. Springing from live action into a wildly animated and vividly colored world, the film is an illustration of Chuck Jones’s statement that “[...] animation is an extension of motion pictures, not an imitation. It should go where live action can’t go.” DS
