A poor, old woodcarver with dreams of becoming a puppeteer is given a magical block of pinewood that can talk. But as soon as Geppetto carves the little legs into his mischievous puppet, it kicks him and runs away! Pinocchio soon discovers a world of talking crickets, fairies with turquoise hair and lazy boys who turn into donkeys. He’s finally returned to Geppetto, as the pair face danger in the belly of the great Dogfish. Can they escape? Can Pinocchio’s dreams of being a real boy come true at last? Our two-part episode is adapted from the treasured children’s classic, translated from Carlo Collodi’s original Italian text.
