The Phantom Tollbooth was based on the classic children’s book of the same name by Norton Juster. It was produced as an animated film in the late 1960s by MGM/Visual Arts, although not released until 1970. The producers were Chuck Jones, Abe Levitow and Les Goldman. Chuck and Abe served as the animation directors and former Schlesinger/Warner Bros. storyman Dave Monahan handled the live action directing. A great number of Jones’ former Looney Tunes crew worked on the film including production designer Maurice Noble, background artist Phil DeGuard and animators Ben Washam, Lloyd Vaughan and Richard Thompson.
