The Phantom Tollbooth

For the boy Milo, every day is boring and nothing in the life can hold his interest. One afternoon, amidst his usual time wasting, a magic tollbooth appears in Milo's bedroom. Believing he has nothing better to do with his day, Milo hops in the car and unknowingly sets off on a wild adventure through the Kingdom of Wisdom.

Chuck Jones' version of Alice in Wonderland, The Phantom Tollbooth is an engaging, heady trip that is rife with Chuck Jones' signature touches. Take out Alice in Wonderland's psychedelic nonsense...
