Name That Trauma :: Reader Alxp on a Faceless Man With a Magic Pencil

October 17th, 2009 by aunt john · 5 Comments

Hi guys,

When I was young I remember watching an animated educational film which always disturbed me because of this one character (a bad guy) who didn’t have a face. I remember it started and ended live action, and that the main character’s dog could talk in the animated world.

He was also given some gifts on the way which included a magic pencil, which I think he used to kill a dragon, and a bag which was filled with either words or numbers, probably words.

If you could help me recognize what this is it would be really helpful as I’ve been thinking about it for years!

Sounds a bit like The Phantom Tollbooth. I think there was a faceless minor evil-guy in that, and certainly a talking dog and live-action start and finish.

My grandma suggested something called Winky Dink. I’m not sure this is what she was talking about, but there’s a dog and pencils.
