The Phantom Tollbooth Wiki

Phantom Tollbooth Demon of Insincerity Clip


The Demon of Insincerity is a demon who tricked Milo, Tock and the Humbug--and when unseen always tells lies.


He is small and furry with worried eyes and a frown. His eyes are not green and he has a narrow mouth, thin neck, narrow, long arms, small feet and a button nose. He is actually a really adorable creature for a demon.


He is very easily scared and saddened and when unseen everything he says is a lie. He pretends he has a long nose, green eyes, curly hair, a wide mouth, a thick neck, broad shoulders, a round body, short arms, big feet and is bow-legged. He does this to trick people. He needs to say thank you.
