The Phantom Tollbooth (1970) Poster


Jump to: Continuity (3) | Crew or equipment visible (1) | Plot holes (1) | Spoilers (1)


When King Azaz is first seen (in long shot) his costume has the purple and blue colors of the Mathemagician, instead of the correct colors of orange and red. (Noticed by someone's seven-year-old daughter.)
When Faintly McCabre offers Milo and Tock some cookies, Tock eats all of them, yet in the next shot they are back.
King Azaz gives Milo a yellow bag, but when he pulls it out later it's purple.

Crew or equipment visible 

During the live-action portion at the start of the film, as the kids run out of the school, the camera operator's shadow is briefly visible on the bottom right corner.

Plot holes 

When Milo meets the Which, she addresses him by name even though he never told her what it was.


The goof item below may give away important plot points.

Revealing mistakes 

After the princesses Rhyme and Reason are rescued, the Kings toast each other, and as the car containing Milo, Tock and the Humbug drive past in front of them from right to left, for just a split-second, the car (and its occupants) disappears, and then reappears.
