It's not one that I'll probably ever watch again... [but] It was a fun one to finally explore.

The youthful viewer and his parents should overlook Phantom Tollbooth's flaws and concentrate on the film's underlying moral.

More would have been acheived without the inclusion of the sappy pop songs, but the film still has infinitely more savvy than most of the Disney cartoons of the period.

[The film] has some wonderful ideas, but they're likely to be a bit above the heads of very young children. The rest should enjoy it, especially the bits with the great Mel Blanc, Toonville's greatest-ever voice.

This fine adaptation of the children's book by Norton Juster was Chuck Jones's and MGM's first animated feature.

The animation is clean, with enough pop to do Dictionopolis-and-company justice.

Clever artistry fails to convey the book's depth.

Uneven but is interesting as an alternative to the dominant Disney features of the time
