Pinocchio



Looking down at his newly crafted puppet, kindly old Geppetto makes one wish, that Pinocchio could be a real boy. The Blue Fairy appears that night and brings Pinocchio to life, telling him that if he learns to be honest, brave and unselfish, he will become a real boy. And then a fantastic, musical adventure begins, with a marionette show, a sly fox, and boys turning into donkeys. Join Pinocchio as he tries to get out of trouble and learn what it takes to be a real boy.
