  • Once upon a time,

  • in a little village in Italy there lived a carpenter named Geppetto.

  • Although he loved children, the old man had no child of his own.

  • ...And so...

  • I'm done!

  • Now I ought to name you.

  • Pinocchio! Your name is Pinocchio!

  • Hello, old man! Thank you so much for making me!

  • It just spoke!

  • When the wooden doll spoke, Geppetto was surprised - - and pleased

  • Too - too snug a hag!

  • My son's a cute one!

  • Old Geppetto was over joyed.

  • Indeed, the two of them were so happy, that night they could hardly get to sleep.

  • Play carefully, son!

  • Pinocchio frolicked. About he looks truly happy.

  • One night, as Pinocchio lay sleeping, a cricket dropped by for a visit.

  • If you want to be a real boy, you have to go to school and study!

  • To school? Study?

  • Old man, I want to go to school!

  • Oh! Well, good for you. Pinocchio!

  • Old Geppetto was very poor. He had no money.

  • But he was a doting old man.

  • and for Pinocchio's sake he sold his coat to help raise enough money.

  • Here's money for your studies.

  • Yes, old man, I'm off! It's off to school I go!

  • On his way to school, Pinocchio heard something that sounded like fun.

  • Come one, come all, to the world's best marionette show!

  • Come one, come all ! Thank you!

  • Thus Pinocchio spent his precious money.

  • Come one, come all !

  • Oh, no! Look what a mess you've made!

  • The Leader of the Marionette Company was simply furious.

  • But then he heard that Pinocchio had spent the money intended for his schooling.

  • The Leader was moved to tears, and forgave him.

  • My regards to old Geppetto!

  • The Leader had given him five gold coins!

  • Looks like you're having fun.

  • Yes, I have five gold coins.

  • There's a way to make them multiply, you know.

  • Really?

  • Really and truly.

  • If you plant your coins in this hole, a money tree will grow.

  • with plenty of coins for the plucking.

  • That's it, right?

  • But to make it grow faster, water it.

  • Just so.

  • I'll go draw some water.

  • Thus was Pinocchio tricked, and his money stolen.

  • You were too quick to believe your money could multiply.

  • As long as we get it back.

  • Pinocchio went in pursuit of the Fox and the Cat,

  • to try to recover his money.

  • But the Fox and the Cat got the better of him, and tied him up.

  • why have you been tied up in such a place?

  • Pinocchio was embarrassed.

  • At the same time, he also wanted her help. So he lied.

  • When he did...

  • Did you really want to go to school?

  • Every time Pinocchio lied, his nose grew longer!

  • If you want to become a real child, you mustn't tell lies.

  • I'm sorry, I'll be a good boy from now on, I won't tell lies.

  • From now on, you must do what the old man tells you.

  • Yes.

  • What a relief!

  • Pinocchio wanted to become a person so much, he went to school every single day.

  • One day...

  • in Toyland you can play all day long.

  • What should I do? It would be fun to play all the time.

  • No! I'm going to study!

  • I'll go by myself!

  • Wait! I'm coming too!

  • Pinocchio couldn't stay put after all. He went out to play.

  • Pinocchio was having so much fun, he forgot all about the old man, the goddess, and school,

  • He just played.

  • But Toyland had a dark side.

  • Children who played all day long suddenly turned into an ass!

  • When Pinocchio did not return home.

  • Geppetto grew worried, and decided to go out and look for him.

  • Pinocchio had been sold to the circus!

  • You've been neglecting your studies.

  • Very bad. From now on, you'll learn with the aid of this whip!

  • Pinocchio's legs were injured.

  • No matter how hard he was whipped, his legs hurt so much he couldn't perform.

  • We can't afford to keep a broken-down ass! You're fish - bait! Huh!

  • And he was pushed into the sea.

  • Ahoy! Help!

  • Help, help!

  • Pinocchio was swallowed up by a gigantic shark!

  • Pinocchio wept - - and something strange happened!

  • I've got my body back! Yay for me!

  • Is somebody there? If there is, answer me!

  • Old man?

  • That voice! Pinocchio?!

  • Gepetto had searched and searched, and when he searched the sea,

  • the giant shark had swallowed him, too!

  • But fanciest us meeting, trapped in the stomach of a shark!

  • It's okay! I have an idea!

  • Pinocchio's bitter experiences had made him clever.

  • If we make the shark sneeze, it will sneeze us out!

  • Very clever!

  • One, two, one, two!

  • AH-CHOO!

  • The plan worked.

  • Old man, I know I've been a bad boy.

  • But I'll be a good boy from now on, I'm sorry!

  • Pinocchio sincerely regretted his past behavior. And when he did...
