| One of Disney`s finest movies
Pinocchio is a true classic in the world of movies. Pinocchio is based on the Italian story about the puppet who became a real boy. Pinocchio is one of Disney`s finest and it beats all the new ultracommercial cartoons, which the company produces nowadays. The story is good, the characters are very likable and warmhearted, and the music is sheer perfection. These old Disney classics are cartoons that are suitable for the WHOLE family, not just the small kids. Watch it, and prepare to be stunned! 9/10

Trivia

The pool hall at Pleasure Island is in the shape of a giant eight ball with a tall cue-shaped structure standing nearby. This is a neat takeoff on the Trylon and the Perisphere at the 1939 New York World's Fair.


Quotes

Jiminy Cricket: Pretty, huh? I'll bet a lot of you folks don't believe that, about a wish comin' true, do ya? Well, I didn't, either. Of course, I'm just a cricket singing my way from hearth to hearth, but let me tell you what made me change my mind.


Goofs

The 12-ball on the pool table on Pleasure Island is first white with a dark blue stripe in the first and second shots of Lampwick. The camera then cuts to Pinocchio and back to Lampwick. The 12-ball is now solid dark blue. The 12-ball also keeps moving around on the table randomly without anybody hitting it.


Crazy Credits

The RKO logo is carved into a wood background.


Alternate Versions

The 2009 Platinum Edition DVD (English mono and 5.1) omits two single lines of dialog: Jiminy Cricket's reassuring "Right!" to Pinocchio's utterance of his name during the song "Give a Little Whistle", and the "look out, Pinocch'!" a minute later. Even the subtitles and captions omit this line as well. Past releases, and even the 2009 Platinum Blu-ray (mono and 7.1), have the lines intact. Both of these lines are also intact in the Walt Disney Signature Collection release.
