The Adventures of Pinocchio | 1996
Geppetto is a lonely puppetmaker whose wooden creatures are the only family he knows. Years ago, he and his sweetheart carved their names into an old pine tree in Hidden Valley. But Geppetto was unable to declare his love, and she married his brother instead. One day, as he is traveling through the forest, a log from that forgotten tree finds its way into his wheelbarrel, inspiring Geppetto to carve a puppet he names Pinocchio, who magically begins to walk and talk! Determined to be a rael boy, Pinocchio goes looking for fun and adventure in an unfamiliar world. A nose that grows, a giant sea monster and a wild theme park are just some of the exploits he encounters. Pursued by the evil showman Lorenzini, Pinocchio must learn to sidestep the enticing traps set for him by the cunning Felinet and her partner Volpe. Finally with the help of a wise-cracking cricket named Pepe, Pinocchio foils his foes and learns that only a miracle of the heart can turn a puppet's dream into reality.
