I looked through the FAQ, couldn't find anything about this one. Anyone know?

I remember it started out as a live action film. The boy is in his bedroom, and sticks an arm or something through his mirror. On the other side of the mirror he's in cartoon form. Eventually he goes all the way through the mirror (I remember him driving around in a little red car?). From this point on the movie is animated. He has a whole bunch of adventures in this animated world. There's a policeman chasing him. He ends up in a castle and has to order dinner. Except, he doesn't get served food, he gets served words.

Does this ring a bell to anyone???

Sounds like Chuck Jones's The Phantom Tollbooth to me.

This is the first time the phrase "kid going through mirror" didn't lead to 75 of us screaming all at once;"HUGGA BUNCH!!!!!!"

I know! I was worried that no one would read this post since I called it "Kid goes through the mirror".

Phantom Tollbooth actually came out in 1970, so it's not even an 80's movie. Oops!
