Pinocchio is a 1940 American animated children's fantasy film, produced by Walt Disney and based on Carlo Collodi's ''The Adventures of Pinocchio''. The second film in the Walt Disney Animated Classics collection, Pinocchio tells the tale of a wooden marionette boy, Pinocchio (voice of Dickie Jones), who wants nothing more than to become a real boy. A sweet coming-of-age tale, Pinocchio follows the lad's adventures and misadventures as he struggles along a trying path of self-discovery and matuation. Pinocchio has the help of the Blue Fairy (voice of Evelyn Venable) and Jiminy Cricket (Cliff Edwards) along the way, but he also encounters some undesirable characters who try to lead him down the wrong path. Pinocchio is a fun, family-friendly film that children of all ages can enjoy.
