I noticed that there's a WB chat coming up, but I don't know if I'll be able to make it. If not, can someone please ask about this title? I'm pretty sure that it comes under the "theatrical" banner as opposed to the "classical animation" one.

I'm happy to have PT on VHS. A wonderful, dreamy little film. I find it complements The 5000 Fingers of Dr. T for me for some reason. We have Dr. T on DVD...but still no PT. I suspect Wyle E. Coyote or The Grinch is behind this travesty!

This movie came up again over the weekend, and of course it still hasn't appeared on DVD. Looking back over this thread, it looks like the 2004 release never happened, and now we're close to 2008 and still no news. Has WHV said anything more about this title?

Chris, I know that based on an earlier chat with WB, the studio did acknowledge that this title was in production. I also know that many times projects they promise often get put on the back burner for a number of reasons. I suspect that this title is still on a future release schedule. The mere fact that it was put into production means that it 's not a matter of IF but WHEN. I'm certain we'll be chatting with Warner Brothers again soon, and we'll try to pose a question to them on this release.

As an animation nut and a fan of Chuck Jones, this has been on my "list of movies to see when it comes out on DVD", as I could never bring myself to rent or borrow one of those horribly worn-out VHS copies. A release in the new year would be nice.

Next week TCM is having a night Chuck Jones's masterpieces, and The Phantom Tollbooth is being shown since it was his only feature length film. In June WB is releasing his 34 Tom and Jerry shorts from 63-67. This being 2009, The Phantom Tollbooth is 39 years old and probably before the year is up WB or MGM will release this as either a "Deluxe Edition" or "40th Anniversary" of this wonderful animated film.
