A living puppet, with the help of a cricket as his conscience, must prove himself worthy to become a real boy.
In the 1883 novel Pinocchio killed Jiminy Cricket, who was known only as Talking Cricket, by throwing a mallet at him.
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.
Stromboli puts a bag full of money in his pocket, but a few minutes later, it is no longer there.
None of the actors in this film are credited.
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.
