Butch Patrick (“The Munsters”) plays Milo, a bored city kid who receives a mysterious gift of a magical tollbooth. Entering it, he finds himself transported from a live-action universe to a psychedelic animated one, then thrust into a series of far-out adventures including rescuing the Princesses Rhyme and Reason from the Castle in the Air. Voices supplied by voice-over legends Mel Blanc, Daws Butler and June Foray.
