The greatest animated feature of all time? A lot of people think so. Many film historians consider this to be the Disney animated film that most closely approaches technical perfection. Based on the 1883 Italian novel The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi, it was the second animated feature film produced by Walt Disney, following the enormous success of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs in 1937. The plot involves an old Italian woodcarver, Geppetto, who carves a wooden puppet named Pinocchio. He is brought to life by the Blue Fairy, who informs Pinocchio that he can become a real boy if he proves himself to be “brave, truthful, and unselfish.” Jiminy Cricket serves as Pinocchio’s conscience. Memorable sets pieces include the nightmarish Pleasure Island and Monstro the whale. Songs include the Academy Award-winning When You Wish Upon a Star. Superb in every way!
