‘Pinocchio’ Plot Synopsis

In Pinocchio, Geppetto is a lonely woodcarver who longs for a child. One night, a Blue Fairy partially grants his wish when she brings his wooden marionette named Pinocchio to life. In order to become a real boy, Pinocchio must prove himself worthy. He sets out into the world, with Jiminy Cricket acting as his conscience. However, a wicked fox named J. Worthington Fowlfellow soon leads Pinocchio astray; first to a life in the theater in Stromboli’s puppet show, and then to Pleasure Island. The boys boys behave like jackasses before transforming into one like Donkey from Shrek. It’s only after Pinocchio saves Geppetto from a whale’s belly that he proves himself worthy to be a real little boy.
