Storyline

Pinocchio has been a real boy for a year. So his creator, Geppetto makes him a cake to celebrate. After a visit from the Pinocchio's Fairy Godmother (who had turned Pinocchio into a real boy), Geppetto realizes that he must deliver a precious Jewel box to the Mayor. Pinocchio persuades Geppetto to allow to take the box and makes his way to the Mayor's house. Pinocchio also takes with him his hand-make glow worm, which magically becomes real when Pincoccho gets distracted by a Carnival that has come to town. Pinocchio names his glow worm Willikers and decides to take a peek at the Carnival, despite Geppetto telling him not to go anywhere near it. Nearby, Scalawag and his colleague Igor advertise a three-shell game which cheats people out of their money, leading to Scalawag's and Igor's escape by using a cannon to get away from the angry mob. Scalawag meets Pinocchio and trades the Jewel box a ruby, which turns out to be a fake when Pinocchio gets home, which angers Geppetto. Pinocchio ... Written by The Waltzing Walkman

The most disturbing animated movie ever.
15 September 2018 | by sunlight_vickieSee all my reviews

This is literally the most disturbing cartoon I have ever seen in my life. I have no idea how something as dark and creepy was even created for poor little children. I myself watched this movie several times as a kid and now, looking back, I am totally horrified. I will never show this to my kids. It is just so messed up - kids getting drunk, hallucinations, Satan, creepy ventriloquist, puppets, ringmasters - a whole nightmare package. Most reviews here are positive, so maybe there is just something wrong with me. As far as I am concerned, this is way too dark to be called a cartoon, and the whole story of innocent Pinocchio and his father (creator) was totally ruined by some sick man's wild fantasy. This may sound too harsh but no offence, this is just my personal point of view.
