'''''Pinocchio''''' is a 1940 American [[Animated film|animated]] [[Musical film|musical]] [[fantasy film|fantasy]] [[adventure film|adventure]] film produced by [[Walt Disney Animation Studios|Walt Disney Productions]] and based on the 1883 Italian children's novel ''[[The Adventures of Pinocchio]]'' by [[Carlo Collodi]]. It was the second animated feature film produced by Disney, made after the first animated success ''[[Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (pelikula1937 noong 1937film)|Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs]]'' (1937).
The plot involves an old Italian [[wood carving|wood-carver]] named [[Geppetto]] who carves a wooden puppet named [[Pinocchio#Disney version|Pinocchio]]. The puppet is brought to life by a [[Fairy with Turquoise Hair|blue fairy]], who informs him that he can become a real boy if he proves himself to be "brave, truthful, and unselfish". Pinocchio's efforts to become a real boy involve encounters with a host of unsavory characters. The key character of [[Jiminy Cricket]] is based on a 100-year "wise, old" [[Talking Cricket|talking cricket]] from the original book,<ref>{{cite book|last=Green|first=Stanley|title=Hollywood Musicals Year by Year|year=1999|edition=2nd|publisher=Hal Leonard Corporation|isbn=0-634-00765-3|page=91}}</ref> who warns Pinocchio of his impudence when they meet only to be killed in return shortly after, before returning as a ghost.<ref>Collodi, Carlo. ''The Adventures of Pinocchio''. Apple Books. Chapter 4.</ref> The film was adapted by several storyboard artists from Collodi's book. The production was supervised by [[Ben Sharpsteen]] and [[Hamilton Luske]], and the film's sequences were directed by [[Norm Ferguson (animator)|Norman Ferguson]], [[T. Hee]], [[Wilfred Jackson]], [[Jack Kinney]], and Bill Roberts. ''Pinocchio'' was a groundbreaking achievement in the area of effects animation, giving realistic movement to vehicles, machinery and natural elements such as rain, lightning, smoke, shadows and water. The film was released to theaters by [[RKO Radio Pictures]] on February 7, 1940.
Although it became the first animated feature to win a competitive Academy Award — winning two for [[Academy Award for Best Original Score|Best Music, Original Score]] and for [[Academy Award for Best Original Song|Best Music, Original Song]] for "[[When You Wish Upon a Star]]" — it was initially a [[box office bomb]], mainly due to [[World War II]] cutting off the European and Asian markets overseas. It eventually made a profit in its 1945 reissue, and is considered [[List of films considered the best|one of the greatest animated films ever made]], with a [[List of films with a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes|100% rating]] on the website [[Rotten Tomatoes]]. The film and characters are still prevalent in popular culture, featuring at various [[Walt Disney Parks and Resorts|Disney parks]] and in other forms of entertainment. In 1994, ''Pinocchio'' was added to losthe EstadosUnited UnidosStates [[National Film Registry]] for being deemed "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".<ref>{{Cite web|title=Complete National Film Registry Listing {{!}} Film Registry {{!}} National Film Preservation Board {{!}} Programs at the Library of Congress {{!}} Library of Congress|url=|website=Library of Congress, Washington, D.C. 20540 USA|access-date=May 7, 2020}}</ref>

[[Jiminy Cricket]] explains to the audience that he is going to tell a story of a wish coming true. His story begins in the Italian workshop of a woodworker named [[Geppetto]]. Jiminy watches as Geppetto finishes work on a wooden marionette whom he names [[Pinocchio]]. Before falling asleep, Geppetto makes a wish on a star that Pinocchio will be a [[Boy|real boy]]. During the night, a [[The Fairy with Turquoise Hair|Blue Fairy]] visits the workshop and brings Pinocchio to life, although he still remains a puppet. She informs him that if he proves himself brave, truthful, and unselfish, he will become a real boy, and assigns Jiminy to be his conscience.
Geppetto is shocked but ecstatic to discover his puppet is alive. The next day, on his way to school, Pinocchio is led astray by [[The Fox and the Cat|Honest John the Fox and his companion, Gideon the Cat]], who convinces him to join [[Stromboli (Pinocchio)|Stromboli]]'s puppet show, despite Jiminy's objections. Pinocchio becomes Stromboli's star attraction as a marionette who can sing and dance without strings. However, when Pinocchio wants to go home for the night, Stromboli locks him in a birdcage. Jiminy sneaks into Stromboli's cart but is unable to free his friend. The Blue Fairy appears and asks Pinocchio why he was not at school. Jiminy urges Pinocchio to tell the truth, but instead, he starts telling lies, which causes his nose to grow longer and longer. Pinocchio vows to be good from now on, and the Blue Fairy returns his nose to its original form and sets him free while warning him that this will be the last time she can help him.
Across town, Honest John and Gideon meet a [[The Coachman|coachman]] who promises to pay them money if they can find naughty little boys for him to take to [[Land of Toys|Pleasure Island]]. Encountering Pinocchio on his way home, they convince him that he needs to take a vacation there. On the way to Pleasure Island, he befriends [[Candlewick (Pinocchio character)|Lampwick]], a delinquent boy. Without rules or authority to enforce their activity, Pinocchio and the other boys soon engage in [[Tobacco smoking|smoking]] [[cigar]]s and [[cigarette]]s, [[gambling]], [[vandalism]], and getting [[drunk]], much to Jiminy's dismay. Later, while trying to get home, Jiminy discovers that the island hides a horrible curse: the boys brought to Pleasure Island transform into [[donkey]]s for their misbehavior and are sold to [[slave labor]] in the [[salt mines]] and [[circus]]. Jiminy runs back to warn Pinocchio, only to witness Lampwick transform into a donkey. With Jiminy's help, Pinocchio narrowly escapes the island with only donkey ears and a tail.

Upon returning home, Pinocchio and Jiminy find the workshop vacant. They soon get a letter from the Blue Fairy as a dove, stating that Geppetto had ventured out to sea to save Pinocchio from Pleasure Island, but was swallowed by [[The Terrible Dogfish|Monstro]], a terrible [[Sperm whale|giant whale]], and is now living in the belly of the beast. Determined to rescue his father, Pinocchio jumps into the sea accompanied by Jiminy. Pinocchio is soon swallowed by Monstro as well, where he finds Geppetto. Pinocchio devises a scheme to make Monstro sneeze, giving them a chance to escape. The scheme works, but the enraged whale chases them and smashes their raft. Pinocchio pulls Geppetto to safety in a cave before Monstro crashes into it. Geppetto, Figaro, Cleo, and Jiminy are washed up safely on a beach, but Pinocchio is apparently killed.

Back home, Geppetto, Jiminy, and the pets are inconsolable and mourn the loss of Pinocchio. The Blue Fairy, however, decides that Pinocchio has proven himself brave, truthful, and unselfish; to reward him, she reverses the Pleasure Island curse and turns him into a real human boy, reviving him in the process. Pinocchio awakens, much to everyone's joy when they find out he's now a real boy. As the group celebrates, Jiminy steps outside to thank the Fairy and is rewarded with a solid gold badge that certifies him as an official conscience as the film ends.

== Production ==
=== Development ===
In September 1937, during the production of ''[[Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937 film)|Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs]]'', animator [[Norm Ferguson (animator)|Norman Ferguson]] brought a translated version of [[Carlo Collodi]]'s 1883 Italian children's novel ''[[The Adventures of Pinocchio]]'' to the attention of [[Walt Disney]]. After reading the book, "Walt was busting his guts with enthusiasm" as Ferguson later recalled. Disney then commissioned storyboard artist [[Bianca Majolie]] to write a new story outline for the book, but after reading it, he felt her outline was too faithful.{{sfn|Gabler|2006|p=291}} ''Pinocchio'' was intended to be the studio's third feature, after ''[[Bambi]]''. However, due to difficulties with ''Bambi'' (adapting the story and animating the animals realistically), Disney announced that ''Bambi'' would be postponed while ''Pinocchio'' would move ahead in production. [[Ben Sharpsteen]] was then re-assigned to supervise the production while [[Jack Kinney]] was given directional reins.{{sfn|Barrier|1999|p=236}}{{sfn|Gabler|2006|p=291}}
=== Writing and design ===
Unlike ''Snow White'', which was a short story that the writers could expand and experiment with, ''Pinocchio'' was based on a novel with a very fixed story. Therefore, the story went through drastic changes before reaching its final incarnation.<ref name="ReferenceA">{{cite AV media notes|url=|title=No Strings Attached: The Making of Pinocchio|year=2009|publisher=Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment}}</ref> In the original novel, Pinocchio is a cold, rude, ungrateful, inhuman creature that often repels sympathy and only learns his lessons by means of brutal torture.{{sfn|Barrier|1999|p=237}} The writers decided to modernize the character and depict him similar to [[Edgar Bergen]]'s dummy [[Charlie McCarthy]],{{sfn|Gabler|1999|p=294}} but equally as rambunctious as the puppet in the book. The story was still being developed in the early stages of animation.{{sfn|Barrier|1999|p=237}}

Early scenes animated by [[Frank Thomas (animator)|Frank Thomas]] and [[Ollie Johnston]] show that Pinocchio's design was exactly like that of a real wooden puppet with a long pointed nose, a peaked cap and bare wooden hands.{{sfn|Barrier|1999|pp=237–8}} Disney, however, was not impressed with the work that was being done on the film. He felt that no one could really sympathize with such a character and called for an immediate halt in production.{{sfn|Barrier|1999|p=237}}{{sfn|Gabler|2006|p=294}} [[Fred Moore (animator)|Fred Moore]] redesigned the character slightly to make him more appealing, but the design still retained a wooden feel.{{sfn|Barrier|1999|p=238}} Young and upcoming animator [[Milt Kahl]] felt that Thomas, Johnston and Moore were "rather obsessed with the idea of this boy being a wooden puppet" and felt that they should "forget that he was a puppet and get a cute little boy; you can always draw the wooden joints and make him a wooden puppet afterwards". Co-supervising director [[Hamilton Luske]] suggested to Kahl that he should demonstrate his beliefs by animating a test sequence.{{sfn|Canemaker|2001|p=137}} Kahl showed Disney a test scene in which Pinocchio is underwater looking for his father.{{sfn|Gabler|2006|p=306}} From this scene, Kahl re-envisioned the character by making him look more like a real boy, with a child's [[Tyrolean hat]] and standard cartoon character four-fingered (or three and a thumb) hands with [[Mickey Mouse]]-type gloves on them.{{sfn|Barrier|2008|pp=140–1}} The only parts of Pinocchio that still looked more or less like a puppet were his arms, legs and his little button wooden nose. Disney embraced Kahl's scene and immediately urged the writers to evolve Pinocchio into a more innocent, naïve, somewhat coy personality that reflected Kahl's design.{{sfn|Barrier|1999|p=239}}
However, Disney discovered that the new [[Pinocchio]] was too helpless and was far too often led astray by deceiving characters. Therefore, in the summer of 1938, Disney and his story team established the character of the cricket. Originally, the cricket was only a minor character that Pinocchio killed by squashing him with a mallet and that later returned as a ghost. Disney dubbed the cricket "Jiminy", and made him into a character that would try to guide Pinocchio into the right decisions.{{sfn|Gabler|2006|p=305}} Once the character was expanded, he was depicted as a realistic cricket with toothed legs and waving antennae, but Disney wanted something more likable. [[Ward Kimball]] had spent several months animating two sequences—a soup-eating musical number and a bed-building sequence—in ''Snow White'', which was cut from the film due to pacing reasons. Kimball was about to quit until Disney rewarded him for his work by promoting him to the supervising animator of Jiminy Cricket.{{sfn|Canemaker|2001|pp=99–101}} Kimball then conjured up the design for Jiminy Cricket, whom he described as a little man with an egg head and no ears.{{sfn|Barrier|1999|p=240}} Jiminy "was a cricket because we called him a cricket," Kimball later joked.{{sfn|Gabler|2006|p=305}}
=== Casting ===
[[File:Jackie Kelk Dick Jones Henry Aldrich circa 1943 1944.JPG|thumb|left| [[Dickie Jones]] (right) voices Pinocchio in the film.]]
Due to the huge success of ''Snow White'', Walt Disney wanted more famous voices for ''Pinocchio'', which marked the first time an animated film had used celebrities as voice actors.{{sfn|Gabler|2006|p=304}} He cast popular singer [[Cliff Edwards]], also known as "Ukelele Ike", as Jiminy Cricket.<ref>{{cite web|first=William |last=Ruhlmann |url= |title=Cliff "Ukelele Ike" Edwards &#124; Biography |publisher=AllMusic |date= |accessdate=February 24, 2014}}</ref> Disney rejected the idea of having an adult play Pinocchio and insisted that the character be voiced by a real child. He cast 11-year-old child actor [[Dickie Jones]], who had previously been in [[Frank Capra]]'s ''[[Mr. Smith Goes to Washington]]''.<ref>{{cite web|url= |title=Almanac: "Pinocchio" |publisher=CBS News |date=February 23, 1940 |accessdate=February 24, 2014}}</ref> He also cast [[Frankie Darro]] as Lampwick, [[Walter Catlett]] as Foulfellow the Fox, [[Evelyn Venable]] as the Blue Fairy, [[Charles Judels]] as both the villainous Stromboli and the Coachman, and [[Christian Rub]] as Geppetto, whose design was even a caricature of Rub.{{sfn|Barrier|1999|pp=267–8}}
Another voice actor recruited was [[Mel Blanc]], best remembered for voicing many of the characters in [[Warner Bros.]] cartoon shorts. Blanc was hired to perform the voice of Gideon the Cat. However, it was eventually decided that Gideon would be mute, so all of Blanc's recorded dialogue was subsequently deleted except for a solitary hiccup, which was heard three times in the finished film.{{citation needed|date=September 2020}}

Animation on the film began in January 1938, but work on Pinocchio's animation was discontinued as the writers sought to re-work his characterization and the film's narrative structure. However, animation on the film's supporting characters started in April 1938.{{sfn|Barrier|1999|pp=237–8}} Animation would not resume again with the revised story until September.{{sfn|Barrier|1999|p=239}}
During the production of the film, story artist [[Joe Grant]] formed a character model department, which would be responsible for building three-dimensional clay models of the characters in the film, known as maquettes. These models were then given to the staff to observe how a character should be drawn from any given angle desired by the artists.{{sfn|Gabler|2006|p=306}} The model makers also built working models of Geppetto's cuckoo clocks, as well as Stromboli's gypsy wagon and the Coachman's carriage. However, owing to the difficulty animating a realistic moving vehicle, the artists filmed the carriage maquettes on a miniature set using [[stop motion animation]]. Then, each frame of the animation was transferred onto [[Cel|animation cels]] using an early version of a [[Xerox]]. The cels were then painted on the back and overlaid on top of background images with the cels of the characters to create the completed shot on the [[rostrum camera]]. Like ''Snow White'', live-action footage was shot for ''Pinocchio'' with the actors playing the scenes in pantomime, supervised by Luske.{{sfn|Barrier|1999|pp=260–1}} Rather than tracing, which would result in stiff unnatural movement, the animators used the footage as a guide for animation by studying human movement and then incorporating some poses into the animation (though slightly exaggerated).{{sfn|Barrier|1999|pp=260–1}}
''Pinocchio'' was a groundbreaking achievement in the area of effects animation. In contrast to the [[character animators]] who concentrate on the acting of the characters, effects animators create everything that moves other than the characters. This includes vehicles, machinery and natural effects such as rain, lightning, snow, smoke, shadows and water, as well as the fantasy or science-fiction type effects like Fairy Dust. The influential abstract animator [[Oskar Fischinger]], who mainly worked on ''[[Fantasia (1940 film)|Fantasia]]'' contributed to the effects animation of the Blue Fairy's wand.{{sfn|Moritz|2004|p=84}} Effects animator Sandy Strother kept a diary about his year-long animation of the water effects, which included splashes, ripples, bubbles, waves and the illusion of being underwater. To help give depth to the ocean, the animators put more detail into the waves on the water surface in the foreground, and put in less detail as the surface moved further back. After the animation was traced onto cels, the assistant animators would trace it once more with blue and black pencil leads to give the waves a sculptured look.{{sfn|Barrier|1999|p=262}} To save time and money, the splashes were kept impressionistic. These techniques enabled ''Pinocchio'' to be one of the first animated films to have highly realistic effects animation. Ollie Johnston remarked "I think that's one of the finest things the studio's ever done, as Frank Thomas said, 'The water looks so real a person can drown in it, and they do.'"

{{Main|Pinocchio (soundtrack)}}
The songs in ''Pinocchio'' were composed by [[Leigh Harline]] with lyrics by [[Ned Washington]]. [[Leigh Harline]] and [[Paul Smith (composer)|Paul J.

== Themes ==
[[File:Pinochio2 1940.jpg|thumb|left|Commentator Nicholas Sammond considers ''Pinocchio'' to be a metaphor for American child rearing in the mid-20th century.]]
M. Keith Booker considers the film to be the most down-to-earth of the Disney animated films despite its theme song and magic, and notes that the film's protagonist has to work to prove his worth, which he remarked seemed "more in line with the ethos of capitalism" than most of the Disney films.{{sfn|Booker|2010|p=11}} Claudia Mitchell and Jacqueline Reid-Walsh believe that the male protagonists of films like ''Pinocchio'' and ''Bambi'' (1942) were purposefully constructed by Disney to appeal to both boys and girls.{{sfn|Mitchell|Reid-Walsh|2008|p=48}} Mark I. Pinsky said that it is "a simple morality tale—cautionary and schematic—ideal for moral instruction, save for some of its darker moments", and noted that the film is a favorite of parents of young children.{{sfn|Pinsky|2004|p=28}}
Nicolas Sammond argues that the film is "an apt metaphor for the metaphysics of midcentury American child-rearing" and that the film is "ultimately an assimilationist fable".{{sfn|Honeyman|2013|p=29}} He considered it to be the central Disney film and the most strongly middle class, intended to relay the message that indulging in "the pleasures of the working class, of vaudeville, or of pool halls and amusement parks, led to a life as a beast of burden". For Sammond, the purpose of ''Pinocchio'' is to help convey to children the "middle-class virtues of deferred gratification, self-denial, thrift, and perseverance, naturalized as the experience of the most average American".{{sfn|Booker|2010|pp=11–12}}
Author and illustrator [[Maurice Sendak]], who saw the film in theaters in 1940, called the film superior to Collodi's novel in its depiction of children and growing up. "The Pinocchio in the film is not the unruly, sulking, vicious, devious (albeit still charming) marionette that Collodi created. Neither is he an innately evil, doomed-to-calamity child of sin. He is, rather, both lovable and loved. Therein lies Disney's triumph. His Pinocchio is a mischievous, innocent and very naive little wooden boy. What makes our anxiety over his fate endurable is a reassuring sense that Pinocchio is loved for himself -- and not for what he should or shouldn't be. Disney has corrected a terrible wrong. Pinocchio, he says, is good; his "badness" is only a matter of inexperience," and also that "Pinocchio's wish to be a real boy remains the film's underlying theme, but "becoming a real boy" now signifies the wish to grow up, not the wish to be good."<ref>{{cite news|last=Sendak|first=Maurice|authorlink=Maurice Sendak|title= Walt Disney's Triumph - The Art of Pinocchio|work=[[The Washington Post]]|date=October 7, 1988|url=}}</ref>

=== Initial release ===
[[File:Pinocchio title card.png|thumb|right|''Pinocchio'' title card.]]
[[Frank Nugent|Frank S. Nugent]] of ''[[The New York Times]]'' gave the film five out of five stars, saying "''Pinocchio'' is here at last, is every bit as fine as we had prayed it would be—if not finer—and that it is as gay and clever and delightful a fantasy as any well-behaved youngster or jaded oldster could hope to see."<ref>{{cite news|last=Nugent|first=Frank S.|date=February 8, 1940|title=The Screen in Review; 'Pinocchio,' Walt Disney's Long-Awaited Successor to 'Snow White,' Has Its Premiere at the Center Theatre|work=The New York Times|url=|url-status=live|accessdate=February 25, 2014}}</ref> ''[[Time (magazine)|Time]]'' gave the film a positive review, saying "In craftsmanship and delicacy of drawing and coloring, in the articulation of its dozens of characters, in the greater variety and depth of its photographic effects, it tops the high standard ''Snow White'' set. The charm, humor and loving care with which it treats its inanimate characters puts it in a class by itself."<ref>{{cite magazine |url=,9171,763260,00.html |title=Cinema: The New Pictures |magazine=[[Time (magazine)|Time]] |volume=35 |number=9 |date=February 26, 1940 |accessdate=February 25, 2014 |url-status=live|url-access=subscription}}</ref> ''[[Variety (magazine)|Variety]]'' praised the animation as superior to ''Snow White''{{'}}s writing the "[a]nimation is so smooth that cartoon figures carry impression of real persons and settings rather than drawings to onlooker."

Initially, ''Pinocchio'' was not a box-office success.{{sfn|Barrier|1999|pp=269–73}} The box office returns from the film's initial release were both below ''Snow White's'' unprecedented success and below studio expectations.{{sfn|Thomas|1994|p=161}} Of the film's $2.6&nbsp;million negative cost – twice the cost of ''Snow White''{{sfn|Barrier|1999|p=266}} – Disney only recouped $1&nbsp;million by late 1940, with studio reports of the film's final original box office take varying between $1.4&nbsp;million and $1.9&nbsp;million.{{sfn|Barrier|1999|pp=318, 602}} Animation historian [[Michael Barrier (historian)|Michael Barrier]] notes that ''Pinocchio'' returned rentals of less than one million by September 1940, and in its first public annual report, Walt Disney Productions [[Charge-off|charged off]] a $1&nbsp;million loss to the film.{{sfn|Barrier|1999|p=272}} Barrier relays that a 1947 ''Pinocchio'' balance sheet listed total receipts to the studio of $1,423,046.78. This was primarily due to the fact that [[World War II]] and its aftermath had cut off the European and Asian markets overseas, and hindered the international success of ''Pinocchio'' and other Disney releases during the early and mid-1940s.{{sfn|Barrier|1999|pp=269–73, 602}} [[Joe Grant]] recalled Walt Disney being "very, very depressed" about ''Pinocchio's'' initial returns at the box office.{{sfn|Thomas|1994|p=161}} The distributor RKO recorded a loss of $94,000 for the film from worldwide rentals of $3,238,000.<ref name="Jewell">{{cite news | title=Richard B.

=== Reissues ===
With the re-release of ''[[Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937 film)|Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs]]'' in 1944 came the tradition of re-releasing Disney films every seven to ten years.<ref>{{cite web|url= |title=Pinocchio (1940) - Release Summary |publisher=Box Office Mojo |accessdate=February 14, 2014}}</ref> ''Pinocchio'' was theatrically re-released in 1945, 1954, 1962, 1971, 1978, 1984, and 1992. RKO handled the first two reissues in 1945 and 1954, while Disney itself reissued the film from 1962 on through its [[Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures|Buena Vista Distribution]] division. The 1992 re-issue was digitally restored by cleaning and removing scratches from the original negatives one frame at a time, eliminating soundtrack distortions, and revitalizing the color.<ref>{{cite news|last=Hunter|first=Stephen|url=|title='Pinocchio' returns The restored print looks better than the original|work=The Baltimore Sun|date=June 25, 1992|accessdate=February 4, 2014}}</ref>
Despite its initial struggles at the box office, a series of reissues in the years after World War II proved more successful, and allowed the film to turn a profit. By 1973, the film had earned rentals of $13 million in the United States and Canada from the initial 1940 release and four reissues.{{Sfn|Wasko|2001|p=137}}<ref>{{cite magazine|magazine=Variety|date=January 9, 1974|page=23|title=Updated All-Time Film Rental Champs}}</ref> After the 1978 reissue, the rentals had increased to $19.9 million<ref>{{cite magazine|magazine=Variety|date=January 11, 1983|page=16|title=All-Time Film Rental Champs}}</ref> from a total gross of $39 million.<ref name=mojo>{{cite web|url=|title=Pinocchio|website=[[Box Office Mojo]]|accessdate=December 20, 2019}}</ref> The 1984 reissue grossed $26.4 million in the U.S. and Canada,<ref>{{cite news|last=Harris|first=Kathryn|url=|title=A Nose for Profit: 'Pinocchio' Release to Test Truth of Video Sales Theory|work=Los Angeles Times|date=June 12, 1992|accessdate=September 19, 2020}}</ref> bringing its total gross there to $65.4 million<ref name=mojo/> and $145 million worldwide.<ref name=ww>{{cite magazine|magazine=Variety|date=May 9, 1985|page=1|title=Disney Goes To Vault For Its 'Pinocchio' HV|last=Bierbaum|first=Tom}}</ref> The 1992 reissue grossed $18.9 million in the U.S. and Canada bringing ''Pinocchio'''s lifetime gross to $84.3&nbsp;million at the U.S. and Canadian box office.<ref name=mojo/>

In 1987, [[Filmation]] released a "thinly-veiled" animated sequel to ''Pinocchio'', titled ''[[Pinocchio and the Emperor of the Night]]''. Set a year after Pinocchio became a real boy, the movie received mainly negative reviews from critics and was a commercial failure. Disney sued Filmation for copyright infringement, but Filmation won the lawsuit on the grounds that Collodi's work is in the public domain.{{sfn|Beck|2005}}
