I only saw this film the today. It reminded me why I didn’t see it more often. So musical. Giuseppe makes a toy Pinochio. He wishes that it comes to life for companion. He is easily lead astray to a concert. The father looks for him. They all turn into donkeys after the concert. Pinochio finds via a letter the father in a whale. They wake up eventually n find that pinochio as part of transformation that he must do a good deed to be turned into human. Of which he does by saving the father from the whale.
