A living puppet, with the help of a cricket as his conscience, must prove himself worthy to become a real boy.
Walt Disney Animation Studios' second feature film and first one of the 1940s.
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.
When Geppetto draws Pinocchio's mouth, he dips the paintbrush in brown paint. He then draws the mouth and the paint is black.
There are no end credits for this feature film. However, the credits are at the beginning.
The 1954 re-release marked the last time the film was distributed by RKO. After that, it was replaced by the logo for Buena Vista Distribution Co. (Disney's in-house distribution arm). The 1993 VHS release and 1999 DVD features the Buena Vista logo. However, the overseas DVD release in 2003, the Platinum Edition DVD and Blu-ray releases in 2009 and the Walt Disney Signature Collection DVD and Blu-ray releases in 2017 restored the original RKO logo. But both versions include reissue credits, as reference to Technicolor should have read "in Technicolor" but not just "Technicolor".
