The Seattle International Film Festival (SIFF) announced the line-up for their "Animation Fascination" series of animated short cartoons and feature films to be shown April 22-24.  Included in the line-up will be Chuck Jones' only feature-length animated film, "The Phantom Tollbooth."  Adapted from the Norton Juster book of the same title, "The Phantom Tollbooth" utilizes both live action and animation to tell the story of Milo, a young boy whose boredom catapults him into the adventure of his life.
