Duration: 1 Hour 45 Minutes

(1970) When a tollbooth appears in his bedroom, a rather listless youngster (Butch Patrick) escapes through it into a world of fantasy where he meets an assortment of allegorical figures and learns the value of using time well and making the most of his schooling. Director Chuck Jones’ feature-length cartoon makes playful, intelligent use of visual metaphors and clever word-turns that may motivate some youngsters’ interest in reading and writing.
