"Once upon a time, there was a king," our viewers will say.
In this tale, there is a place where animals can speak,
a child can look like a grown-up
and very often, grown-ups can act like children.
Once upon a time, there was a simple piece of wood.
Oh, my goodness me. I can't see a thing, not a thing.
Now, which way is it?
Oh, dear. Perhaps my lady's right - I do need glasses.
But I know they'll make me look old and I'm not old.
And ugly. Heaven knows, I'm not ugly.
Why is it always so dark in the evenings?
Where does the sun go at night?
I'll have to ask Madam to give me some light.
How beautiful you are!
Do butterflies make you happy, Medoro?
Spreading joy is the best thing you can do in this world,
A thing that comes in to the world and spreads no joy or happiness
might just as well never have been born at all.
How long do butterflies live, Medoro?
A butterfly, they say, never knows sorrow. It lives only one happy day and dies before the morrow.
One thing I don't like about death,
it lasts much too long. It should be the other way around.
What do you mean?
We'd die for just one day and then we'd live happily forever.
Have you ever died, Medoro?
I haven't even finished being born yet.
And anyway, there's no such thing as time, Madam Fairy.
You're quite right, Medoro. Time doesn't exist.
But now, it's time to go. It's getting late.
Well, I'm not sure I remember the way.
You don't remember, or you can't see?
I'm very sorry to ask again, but could we possibly have a little more light?
Just a twinkle more?
If you must, Medoro.
Thank you, Madam Fairy.
Giddy up, my little ones!
Boys, take it easy.
Stop, you hooligan!
-It's a log!
-Arrest that log!
-There it is.
-In disguise, huh?
You don't fool me... Oof!
Oh! Look out! SCREAMING
Why did it happen to my peaches?
Watch out, it's headed this way!
Oh, my word! Oh, my house! Oh, my head!
-Stop, in the name of the law!
-I'm not sure that's going to work, officer. Leave it to me.
-I'll catch it.
-If he thinks he's getting away with this, he doesn't think at all.
DOG BARKS He's a log!
You're a good-looking frame, I must say.
And now, you know what? I'll just add a rose to you here, all right?
You don't like the rose? As I expected. Let's make it a daisy.
Good heavens, what was that?!
Is there anyone there? This better not be a joke.
Some rude little boy running wild in the street.
Ah! What...? What the...?
How did this...?
Did someone lose...a log?
Aren't you a beautiful piece of pine?
Let's see now, you'd make a nice hat rack.
No... I could make a puppet with it.
Yes, an acrobatic puppet that could do somersaults.
Yeah. And who does what he's been told, yeah?
Well, we'll start work immediately. You'll be the best puppet the world has ever seen.
Come on, you'll be like the son I never had
and take care of me when I'm older.
Oh, what a fine puppet it's turning out to be.
It's as if it's making itself. You'll be like the son I never had
and take care of me when I'm older.
Oh, am I hurting you?
Of course not. It comes so easily.
There! You'll make me so proud, huh?
Your very big eyes, nice and round,
pretty black hair,
a beautiful mouth, with the sweetest little tongue.
Papa, can I try your yellow wig on?
I've told you a thousand times - don't interrupt, huh?
I should never have started with your mouth and tongue.
Anyway, who told you the hair wasn't mine?
-Is it obvious?
Is it obvious? Where did you find that thing?
What colour is that exactly?
It looks like you've got a fried egg on your head!
-Don't talk to me like that, all right?
Of all the... I haven't even finished you yet
and you're already talking back to your Papa.
Now, you listen to me, you little rascal,
-you just keep that mouth shut for a while.
-All right, Papa,
I'll keep my mouth shut.
# I will keep my mouth shut I will keep my mouth shut... #
Either I'm going out of my mind, or...
that puppet spoke! Yes, I'm sure it did. Yeah.
I'm pretty sure.
Excuse me, did you speak, or have I gone crazy?
-Er, are you all right?
-Well, Geppetto. And you?
Yes, fine, thank you.
What am I thinking? It can't speak.
How could it speak? It's only a puppet. Huh?
-A puppet can't talk...
-Oh, oh, oh!
-Please shut the door, I'm naked and it's cold in here!
What do you know?
A talking puppet!
Hey, stop that, Papa! Stop tickling!
PUPPET GIGGLES May I have your attention?
Ladies and gentlemen, introducing...
-What name can I give you?
-Yeah, you're made out of pine.
Let me call you Pinocchio! Huh?
-Pinocchio - I like my name!
-And what a fine puppet you are,
with such beautiful clothes and shoes. And the best part of all,
I have made you a hat out of bread.
Oh, isn't that something? Let me get it!
-But I want this hat! Ha-ha-ha!
-What do you think you're doing?
-Papa! Oh, Papa, what's this? What's this here? And this?
-And this, and this, and this? Oh!
-Where are you going?
-Look, Papa's bed!
-Pinocchio, please, come out here!
-This is for jumping!
-Don't jump on my bed and give me my hair back!
-Please be careful with that, it's the only hair I've got!
Get off there, please...
-Papa's chair, Papa's table...
-Don't be a bad boy, be careful!
..Papa's I don't know what!
Where's my...Papa? There's Papa!
-Papa, a window, can we look out of it?
Oh, no. Please be careful.
Oh, look at that, it's amazing!
-There's a whole other world out there.
Come back here, Pinocchio, come back!
-Pinocchio, stay here, will you?
You can't go outside, listen to me! Pinocchio!
Hey, who's making all this noise, a puppet?
Arrest that puppet!
-Why is it always MY peaches?!
-You're gonna pay me for all that wine!
You hear me, you little puppet?!
Ah-ha! There you are, now I've got you!
Not so fast, you! Who does this puppet belong to?
-You're gonna have to pay for all this damage, my friend.
-Who owns this puppet?
-I said, who owns this puppet?!
-He's mine, he's mine, and so is this.
Papa, Papa, you'll never believe the things I've been through!
-Oh, Pinocchio, my boy...
Some father you are.
This puppet is a public menace!
How can that be? I worked hard to make a good and decent puppet.
Decent?! He causes trouble at every turn, and he's your responsibility.
But he was so quick, there was nothing I could do.
Enough! Be more careful. Only a fool lets a puppet slip out
from under his nose, and now he's coming along with us.
-Let's go! Ya!
-Pinocchio! My son, where are you going? Wait!
Oh, no, you don't, you're not going anywhere.
You're coming with us.
You're gonna pay for all of this, or you'll be spending a very long night in the poor house. March!
-How could you?
-Look, a little bird!
I can see you, I can see you!
Oh, so many of you!
Oh, a nest, a nest! It's empty!
Oh, what a wonderful world this is! It's so good to be alive!
Well, now I can get nice and warm. It's freezing!
I wonder where Papa is. What a fantastic day I've been having, and now I'm so hungry
I could eat the whole house. Oh, I wonder if there's a cookie jar anywhere!
I'm Cricket, lover of wisdom, seeker of truth, well dressed insect about town.
No! A talking cricket?!
Cricket, tell me where he hides the cookies, I'm starving.
Perhaps you should have thought of that before you ran away.
Next time use that wooden head of yours.
Hunger is the least of the troubles that befall naughty children.
-Huh? Are you talkin' to me?
-Who else? Fool!
Listen, Cricket, I'm leaving, because if I don't, I'm going to have read books and study.
And there's one thing I don't want to do, I don't want to study.
-Books are vile, and I want nothing to do with them.
-Oh, wise choice!
If you don't study, you'll wind up a silly donkey. Eeyore, eeyore!
That's you, by the way.
Be quiet, will you? Has anyone ever told your voice is really annoying?
I can't listen to it, it makes me nervous, all that nagging of yours.
It's my job to nag, and speaking of jobs...
Huh?! I wasn't... Jobs?!
Yes, isn't there any trade you find appealing?
Well, now that you mention it, there is one job that I would like very, very much.
Ah, I am as delighted as I am shocked, and what job is that?
The job of eating, drinking, playing, snoozing all day long and having a good time all the time!
I apologise. You won't become a donkey, you are one.
And you are a really old boring cricket, so just leave me alone.
Beware, Pinocchio, boys like you will always end up in a fireplace or in a barn. Eeyore!
Well, why don't you just hop back to whatever dark insect hole you sprang from?
So boys like me end up in a fireplace or a barn, huh?
And where would you say... that people like you end up?
-In a cricket cemetery!
Miss! Missed again! Over here!
I gotcha, gotcha, gotcha, gotcha!
How do you like that, huh?
Oh, come on, I was just having a little fun.
Don't be afraid.
-Where are you hiding, Cricket?
Can I help you?
Huh? I can't hear you. There's a bad echo from where you are.
Would you like to come a little closer?
-Yes, well, for example...here.
This is probably the best spot for us to talk.
OK, I'll bite.
What's not to trust about an empty headed delinquent boy holding a hammer?
Ha-ha-ha, see how I tricked you?!
No more nagging out of you, you boring little annoying bug!
Cricket? Where are you? Where...?
Let's not play this game any more, I'm so tired and hungry and cold and hungry and...
What a horrible place this is, I just wanna...
Oh! Oh, dear.
What? Papa, my Papa, oh!
Oh, my Pinocchio!
Oh, the fire was burning you.
Oh, Papa, you'll never believe what I've been through. I don't believe it and I went through it!
What happened to you, Pinocchio?
Oh, everything! It was raining, and it was snowing, and you were gone, and I was starving,
and then the cricket said, "Serves you right, you've been a bad boy!"
So you know what I did? Whack! I squashed him with a hammer, and that felt good, but I was still starving
and tired and cold, and I was all alone without anybody, without even you, Papa, you never came home.
So I sat down near the fire, just to get nice and warm, and then
the fire burned me, so now I'm starving and I look like this,
my beautiful suit is ruined, it's just ruined!
Of course, you'll make me a new suit even better than this one, won't you?
And why it will I make a new suit for you, huh?
A brand-new suit for you to run away in and get me sent back to prison.
Papa, listen, I promise you that as of now I will be a good boy and I will never run away from you again.
-I couldn't be promising more.
Listen, Papa, I promise a whole lot.
All right, then.
Here, look what I've got for you.
I was really looking forward to this pear for breakfast tomorrow, but you need it more than I do.
You're a growing boy after all.
-What a beautiful pear.
-Yes, I thought so, too.
-Would you mind peeling it for me?
See, for me personally, I prefer not to eat the peel,
because you know it's all dirty and it tastes horrible.
You don't like peels?
Papa! Papa, where have you been?
In the poor house because of you, but I'll forgive you if you go to school and use this book I bought for you.
Nice! But where's your jacket?
Well, I sold it.
-I was too hot in it, you see.
I'll remember this for as long as I live.
Now, my boy, off you go to school. And don't forget, make me proud.
-Just a moment.
-Here's the hat I told you about, it's made out of bread.
-How do I look?
-Well, you look really handsome.
Bye, I'm going to school now.
-Bye, I'll be waiting for you.
Today in school I'm gonna learn how to read, tomorrow how to write,
after that to count, and then I'm done.
-What's this music?
-Right this way, sir.
Excuse me, is that the school house?
No, the school's right over there.
What's this place here, then?
There's a sign over there, read it.
Well, I'd love to read it, but today it just so happens that I don't know how to read.
All right, genius, I'll read it.
The Grand Puppet Theatre. I'm going to school.
No, wait! Look, I'm not really very interested, but just in case I was, how much does it cost to get in?
It costs four cents.
Hey, how would you like to buy my shoes for four cents?
-They're nice ones.
Hey, wait a second, how about my hat for four cents?
Or this brand-new reading book which my papa sold his jacket to buy me in this freezing weather? Please!
No, you're going to make me late for school, goodbye.
Hey, I'll take that book off your hands for four cents.
Oh, thank you.
-I'm coming, I'm coming!
Did you steal the salami?
No, no, I never touched no salami!
Yes, you did, I saw you do it!
-I never stole no salami!
In the name of the law, who's the thief?
-It is him!
-It is him!
Thief! Thief! Thief!
Tell me, is it really so? Is this a dream?
What is it that I see before me? A puppet!
For once in his life, he's right!
That's the puppet with the chicken that caused all the trouble in the market! W-W-W-What's his name?
Hip-hip-hooray, it's Pinocchio!
Let's give Pinocchio a special welcome!
Yes, friends, you're right, it's me!
Brothers and sisters!
It's our puppet friend!
What on Earth is all this commotion?!
And who is this intruder on the stage?
Who is it that dares to barge into my theatre and disrupt my show?
-Please, your very bigness, you must believe it wasn't my fault, I was just...
-That's enough now!
We'll settle this over lunch.
My dear ladies and gentlemen, today's performance will be repeated tomorrow.
BOOING Lower the curtain!
Harlequin, Pulcinella, the water's boiling.
Bring me that puppet that's hanging over there.
Let's go! I'll eat him for lunch.
Do as you're told, I'm hungry!
Is he going to eat me?
I beg you, your excellency, your colossalness, I don't like being eaten!
I hate it!
Papa, I really meant to go to school today, I did, I did!
What will you do if I die?
I'm sure you'll die too, Papa!
Really, Pinocchio, this is your opportunity.
He only sneezes like that when he's emotional.
-You see, he's really just a big softie.
Whenever he hears a sad story, he gets a belly ache and loses his appetite.
Just keep him sneezing, find a way to really touch his heart!
-Fine, but how?
-Go on! Go on!
So tell me more about your poor papa.
Are both your parents still alive?
My papa is, and my mama... I never knew my mama.
-Tell me, is your father a rich man? What is his profession?
-He's a professional poor man.
He's paid just enough never to have a penny in his pouch.
Oh, great, magnificent, illustrious one,
my papa is so poor, he never, ever eats!
Yesterday he managed to fry his fake hair because it looked like an egg.
What a wretched family!
Do you have any brothers, huh?
-And how is he?
-No, not well.
Good if he wasn't so sick!
Very bad, very sick.
Very, very sick!
He's dead! He's dead, I just remembered now, he died!
And then he died again, that's twice!
I have a brother who keeps on dying!
At the funeral, my papa is so poor that there was nothing there.
No mourners, no flowers, not even a corpse!
But next door, there's a rich family.
They had a funeral with six or seven corpses because they're filthy rich.
But my papa didn't have even one corpse...
HE SNEEZES TWICE
Pinocchio, you've broken my heart.
Come over here...and give me a kiss.
-Go on, it's OK.
Pinocchio, the story of your family fills me with compassion.
Now I'm going to give you five pieces of gold.
Take them and give them to your father with best regards from me and my theatre.
Oh, five pieces, thank you!
Does this mean you're not going to eat me?
No, I've decided not to eat you.
Silence, or I'll make stew out of all of you!
Hey, good morning, Pinocchio!
Good morning. How come you know my name?
We were just passing by your father's house.
He was there trembling in the cold without a jacket, poor guy.
Yeah, poor, poor.
Poor old Papa, I'll go straight back home, then.
Anyway, from now on, he'll tremble no more.
Why? Because you are now looking at a rich gentleman!
Ha-ha! Did you hear that? A rich gentleman!
Excuse me, gentlemen, but this is nothing to laugh about
when you consider that I have five beautiful pieces of real gold.
That's a good one! Five pieces of gold!
Did he say gold? Gold?
Come on! Wait, wait!
Not here, not here!
Mr Pinocchio, excuse us for not having introduced ourselves.
You see, I am the Fox and this here's the Cat.
Pleasure to me to you, very nice.
-The Cat and I have a fine reputation, we are refined gentlemen.
I see, I see.
And you yourself are said to be such a good puppet,
I was just wondering, what are you going to do with all that gold? Will you be keeping it all for yourself?
Well, first of all, I want to buy my father a brand-new jacket,
and then I want to buy a new school book for me.
Yes, because I want to go to school, study very hard and get a really good job. See you later.
He's going to get a really good job!
Watch what you're doing there!
You know, you're the perfect puppet, but if you were smart,
you could turn those gold coins into 1,000. 10,000!
Ten million! Ten million!
All for me?
-Oh, it's quite simple.
-Instead of going home, just come along with us.
-With us, with us!
With you to where?
-To a land where all the farmers grow gold.
And what's the name of this place?
It's called Nincompoopland!
In Nincompoopland, there's a miraculous field, and it's called the Miracle Meadow.
Miracle Meadow, what a wonderful place!
You dig a hole, bury the coins and a half-hour later
a tree pops out full of coins, you're a millionaire, I love it!
But don't tell anyone, it's a secret. Keep it to yourself.
-All right, I'll keep it to myself.
-No, no, no, I didn't mean you.
Please, put it down here, my good man.
This is surely the best meal I've had in years. Our compliments.
-Yes, surely, compliments.
-Thank you, gentlemen.
Pinocchio, you haven't touched a thing. Eat a pignut.
But... But... I'm not hungry, not hungry.
Let's get started, can't we go now?
No, no, no, no, no, no, not yet!
There's plenty of time.
Garcon! Would you please show Mr Pinocchio to his room?
And don't forget to wake us all up at midnight, right?
Surely it's time for a good rest, it's been a good night.
-Let's go, then.
-All right, then, good night.
Do you know what? I changed my mind.
Yes! When I've got all the gold coins, instead of keeping them all for me...
-..I'll just keep a couple of thousand, that's enough,
and the rest of the gold coins I'll give to you! Huh?
No! It's out of the question!
Pinocchio, we're offended!
That money is for your poor father who really needs it,
and with the rest you buy yourself a nice school book. Good night!
Right, good night, yeah, mm-hm.
Wonderful people, huh?
If only there were more like them!
That's how big his brain is!
Eat up, there's another one right there!
But where are my friends? Are they still sleeping?
They both left a couple of hours ago.
-A slight change in plan.
They told me to tell you they will be waiting for you to join them at the break of day under the giant oak.
What about dinner, they paid for it?
No, I think they thought they might insult you if they paid for it.
Oh, thank you. That insult would have given me lots and lots of pleasure.
Who's there?! Huh?
It's me, splinter-head.
The cricket you tried to squash.
-Ring a bell?
You gave me a heart attack, I thought you were dead. What do want?
-It's so late.
-Now, look, Pinocchio.
I'm trying to do you a favour, OK.
Get rich quick schemes never work.
-I'm not going to go back.
-It's very late.
-I'm going on.
-The night is so dark.
-I'm going on.
-There's danger ahead.
-I'm going on!
Your unruly deeds will only return to bite you in the bottom.
I've heard it all before. Goodnight, cricket.
Goodnight, Pinocchio and may heaven protect you from fire, fog and foul assassins!
Huh. So now I have to watch out for all kinds of things, even bumping into assassins.
Thank goodness I don't believe in assassins.
I never, never have. Not a chance.
Assassins don't scare me.
-Your money or your life!
Hand over your money or you've had it.
Are you crazy? It's dark out there.
-We need some kindling.
-Fetch some dried twigs.
We'll roast him.
Yes. Let's have a little roast.
-I toast the rest.
-Over here, not there!
-All right, there.
It's burning hot.
-Come on, where is he?
-He's over there.
-Where is he?
-He's over there.
-He's over here.
-He's over there.
Sorry, assassins, you'll have to assassinise somebody else.
He's getting away. Come on.
He'll never get away!
You're on fire! You idiot!
I'm on fire!
Jump in the water over here! Jump in the water over there!
-I can't swim!
-They are right behind me.
I need to lose them or they are going to catch me. What's that?
I'm so scared. If I can get to that house, maybe I'll be safe.
Jump in the water, you idiot!
Hey, is anyone home? Is anyone there?
Please, open the door.
Hurry up! Hello, can anyone hear me?
Wake up, anyone.
I can't believe it! There's someone home after all.
There's no-one at home right now.
You're home. Please open the door.
I'm not here either.
Then how can you be standing there in the window?
No, no, please don't go away.
Open, oh, beautiful lady with blue shining hair.
Assassins are after me.
-I told you I was right, he's here.
-No, he's there!
Oh, have pity on a poor puppet.
Oh, lovely lady, help!
We've got you at last. Now, give us some gold or you're finished.
The money, now!
No, it's in my mouth.
-Open up your mouth.
-We'll see about that.
-What a shame.
Such a beautiful puppet.
Yes, he was a beautiful puppet.
Good night, Madam Fairy.
-Good night, Medoro.
There is an old man in the house.
-May I help you?
-Medoro, you are looking at you.
It's a mirror.
Mirrors are not what they used to be any more.
Is he dead or is he living?
I think that he is dead, madam.
I am unable to find any symptoms of life in this puppet.
In my experience, when a patient exhibits an absence of life,
it invariably indicates he is, in a word, dead.
I must disagree. Your diagnosis requires the presence of death.
Here we only have the absence of life.
Even if he is sick, which I doubt, it should be from guilt.
He broke his father's heart.
He's unruly, ungrateful, unrepentant and a first-class delinquent.
No wonder his father suffers so.
But does he care? Not one little bit.
Oh, Papa. Not true, not true, not true. I do care, I do.
I really love my papa.
Gentlemen, if he is alive, he is not dead.
I thank you for your medical opinion. This is a clear indication that doctors are no longer needed.
-You may go.
This is the first case in my entire career that I have seen this.
This is the first time in my life that I have seen a dead patient speak.
He's got a fever.
Before you know it, you will feel better.
-Is it sweet or better?
-It's bitter but you'll feel better.
If it's bitter, I don't want it.
Take it, be brave, child.
I don't like bad things, I don't approve of them.
Drink it up and as soon as you done, I'll give you a piece of candy to take the bitterness away.
First I want the piece of candy, first of all.
Then probably I'll drink your nasty medicine.
Here you are.
Please don't, you can't make me!
I can't stand the smell of it. It's not fair!
No, no, no!
You'll regret it, my child.
-I won't drink it.
-If you don't drink it, you'll die.
-I won't drink it.
-You're very, very ill.
-That's not important.
-You're going to die and it's not important?
Not important, period.
I'd rather die than drink that yucky, icky, nasty stuff!
End of subject!
We've come to take you away, Pinocchio.
To take me? But I'm not even dead.
Not yet, but you soon will be if you don't drink that medicine immediately.
I wanted to take it, but she told me I couldn't have it.
Fairy, give me that delicious medicine right now!
So be it. This time we've made the trip for nothing.
I'm sure we'll have better luck next time.
I feel like a new puppet.
Drinking that medicine has made you feel better.
Better than ever. Next time, I'll remember those rabbits.
Oh, I've got to do something extremely important. There's my hat.
-Thank you for de-dangling me, bye.
-Pinocchio, wait a minute.
-I was just wondering, can you explain why they wanted to hang you?
-They wanted the gold.
And may I ask what happened to the gold?
Um... I lost it.
-And where did you lose it?
-In the woods by the road.
If it's near the road, we'll go back and look and we'll find it in no time.
No, now I remember, it's coming back to me.
Fairy, I didn't really lose the money. No, no.
Well done, Pinocchio.
I swallowed it when I drank that disgusting medicine.
Why are you laughing?
It was the lie that you told.
-How did you know what I told you was a lie?
-Because, my dear Pinocchio, there are two types of lies.
The ones that have short legs
and those with a long nose.
And mine? Which kind is it?
Fairy! But, fairy, have you seen what has happened to my nose?
My nose is getting longer and longer and longer.
Everyone will laugh at me, I know they will.
How can I go out anywhere? Look at my nose! Look at my nose!
I don't like it, I don't want it!
I don't want it! The money, fairy.
The money, fairy, I really didn't swallow it,
it's here in my hand.
Good boy, Pinocchio. To tell a lie is always bad. Don't ever do it again.
Oh, fairy. My beautiful fairy, I love you so much.
I love you too, Pinocchio, always.
It's just that I wanted to buy a coat for my father because he's freezing.
Tell him to meet me here so I can surprise him. Goodbye, fairy.
Come back soon, I'll wait for you.
-How did he manage it?
-Maybe somebody followed him and cut him loose.
-Cut loose, you think so?
It's him, just go.
Dearest friends! I have been looking all over for you.
Pinocchio, you kept us waiting for so long.
It's a long story.
You'll never believe it. At midnight I was attacked by assassins.
-Infamy is right.
Don't tell me they took your money?
In fact, I still have all the coins right here.
Hey, is there still time to get to the Miracle Meadow?
The Miracle Meadow?
You remember, the Miracle Meadow!
-Let's go right now. Which way is it?
-Here we are at last.
-The meadow of miracles.
Where are the money trees?
I forgot to tell you that they grow underground. You need to dig a hole.
-There. Down there.
When I'm rich, I won't just by a fancy new jacket for my papa,
I'll get one for the blue fairy, too.
Or maybe a pretty dress or a dozen of them. You should see her.
She's so beautiful and kind. The best fairy I've ever met in my life.
Stop, you've dug enough.
Just put the coins in and cover them up.
Yes, here they are.
There, I've put them in.
Shall I water them? How long will it take?
Oh, about a half-an-hour.
Why don't you stretch your legs? See the town over there?
It's the town of Grab-a-dimwit.
-Just take a little stroll. Come back in half an hour.
And you know what? You're going to find ching-ching-ching.
And it will all belong to you.
It's your lucky day. Your lucky day, Pinocchio.
Bye! Thank you!
Don't mention it.
Excuse me, Mr Farmer.
Has half an hour gone by?
It's been longer than I can remember.
My goodness! What if I'm too late?
Cricket, can you kindly tell me what's so funny?
Quickly. I'm in a bad mood. What are you laughing at?
You, of course! You can't grow coins like cabbages, beans and zucchini.
It's only through hard work and honesty.
I've heard all this before. And anyway, I don't understand.
Pinocchio, while you were off on your walk, the fox and the cat
gathered up all of your precious gold coins and just walked away.
The fox and the cat? Took my...
But they're such wonderful people!
I can't believe it. It's not true.
No! So that's why the money didn't grow?
I'll tell on them. There's got to be a judge in Grab-a-dimwit.
I'll find the nastiest judge of all.
I know their names. I'll show them.
Poor, deluded Pinocchio.
One is called Cat and the other, Fox.
Two crooks. My cricket will testify.
He was there and he saw me plant the coins, leave, and then the cat and fox take my money.
Then they ran away, the bums. So the poor tree didn't have a chance to grow any gold.
Is that it?
Yes. No! Actually at the Red Prawn Inn, that was daylight robbery too,
because I only ate one nut and they charged me a whole gold coin.
A very expensive nut, I'd say.
With the powers vested in me by the noble King of the grand territory of Grab-a-dimwit,
we will grab this dimwit and put him in jail for five years.
-Silence, dimwit! But I was the one that got robbed!
In you go. Dimwit.
Oh! Serves me right!
I asked for it. That nice little cricket warned me, but I'm a stupid puppet.
Stubborn and pig-headed.
From now on, I've made a decision to change my ways.
And I want to become the sort of boy who is good,
honest, well behaved, does what he's told, goes to school and works hard.
They tamed you well, little puppet.
What's your name?
-Me? My name's Pinocchio.
-So how long are you in for?
-How long is five years?
-It takes years.
-Oh, sweet fairy.
And you? How long are you in for?
I'm getting out today. This place is all yours.
I'll even leave you my reading book.
Are you unruly and disobedient?
I am. They'll never tame me, my dear Pinocchio.
(I've got something to show you.)
(Yeah? What is it?)
(The other day, instead of going to school, do you know what I did?)
-(I ran away from home.)
-(I went inside a sweet shop.)
-And helped myself to every single lollipop they had.
(Did you really lick every one?)
I was just about to lick the first one,
and then I heard a policeman yell out to me, "Put that tongue back, robber,
"and hand over the 28 lollipops you have in your pocket."
And they took them away from me
and said they were going to give them back to the shopkeeper.
You know what I think? I think they kept them.
But I'll tell you something.
They thought there were just 28 lollipops.
But I had 29!
(Let me see it.)
-(Can you guess what flavour it is?)
The flavour of paradise.
-Yes! It's tangerine!
Would you give me one little lick?
-You lick here, me there.
You lick first.
Hey, listen, bud.
So now that you'll be going home,
Beautiful! Will they send you back to school?
Listen to me, Pinocchio.
Only one person tells me what to do.
And that person is Leonardo.
-And who is this Leonardo?
-Yours truly. Me.
Come on, Leonardo.
Out you go, you hooligan.
I hope you learnt your lesson.
And get back to school!
Bye, Pinocchio. See you in five years.
So long, Leonardo.
Here. This is for you.
-What is it?
-It's your dinner.
A, B, C, D, I, K...
That's the first few. And kangaroo.
What is that?
Oh, Papa. My fairy.
-What's happening? Hey, hey!
-Are my five years up already?
-No, you've only done four months.
A son has been born to the King of Grab-a-dimwit.
-To celebrate, there's going to be a feast and he's freeing all of the criminals.
But I'm a crook, too! Hey!
-What did you say?
-I said, I'm a crook, too.
Oh, well, in that case.
Please, after you.
Long live the King! Long live the King of Grab-a-dimwit.
So many terrible things happened to me. I wonder if Papa's still waiting for me.
Will he be at the fairy's? I'm dying to hug him and cuddle him
and give lots and lots and lots of kisses to my old papa.
And the fairy? Will she forgive me for behaving like a bad boy?
I do hope so. I do hope so.
Oh, I do hope so.
Here lies the fairy with the long blue hair.
Broken-hearted, she died of grief because of Pinocchio.
Pinocchio! That's me.
sweet fairy. Why did you die?
Why didn't I die instead of you?
I'm so very bad and you're so very, very good.
Sweet fairy! Fairy! How did you become dead?
I want to be dead, too.
If you really love me,
if you really loved your Pinocchio,
return to life like it was before!
Why can't you be alive again?
I want you alive again and living!
Be alive, fairy! Be alive!
Be alive, fairy! Alive!
Excuse me, young man. Can I ask you something?
Can't you see? I'm crying.
Tell me, you wouldn't happen to know a puppet named Pinocchio, would you?
Did you say Pinocchio?
-Pinocchio? That's me!
-Then I suppose you know Geppetto.
Do I know him? That's my poor father. Is he looking for me?
Oh, please, tell me where he is.
For more than four months, the poor man has been searching the world for you.
Is he far away from here?
-Lead me to him.
Oh, thank you!
Thank you, dear dove.
At last, I'm going to see my papa again.
Hey! What's happening?
There's this poor father who set out in a little boat
on account of his wicked son who can't be found anywhere, and now he's going to look for him across the sea.
But that's... That looks like...
That's my papa!
Papa! Papa! It's me!
It's your only boy, Papa!
He sees me! Come back to me, Papa!
Papa, I will never, ever leave you!
Come back to me, Papa.
Papa! I must save my Papa!
Oh, now what?
That was a close one.
I wonder where I am.
I wonder if I can find a town somewhere.
Let's go have a look.
Oh, fairy, my sweet fairy.
Now I've lost you and my father, too.
Where will I spend the night?
It would be better, a million times better, if I were dead, too.
Yes, I want to die.
And I'm so hungry.
Excuse me. Lady?
Would you give me some food if I carried your water?
Tell me, puppet, what are you doing in this part of the world?
If only you knew how I got here. I'm really sick of being a puppet.
I want to be like everybody else.
-You can be, but you've got to earn it.
-Really? Had do I do that?
Nice decent boys always obey their papas. Whereas you...
I always misbehave.
And nice decent boys always tell the truth.
-And I always tell lies.
-Nice boys are happy to go to school.
And I always... School always gives me a tummy ache, it's a pain in the, pain in the...
But...wait a minute, good lady...
How do you know that?
Oh, fairy, fairy.
Don't make me cry any more.
I knew I'd be choked with grief when I read on the tombstone, "The fairy lies here."
I know. That's the reason why I'm able to forgive you.
The sincerity of your grief made me realise that you have a good heart.
You may still have a chance.
Let's see if maybe you can mend your ways.
Oh, yes. Yes, fairy. Yes, I want to change.
Are you're ready to begin?
I promise, I'll study, I will work hard and do everything you tell me to.
Then I ask of you to please be a good boy
and to go to school every morning and you will go because you promised me.
Yes. I will.
Oh, fairy, your house from the forest.
Hey, guys, look what I found.
-Oh, my gosh, I can't believe it.
Hey, give it back.
Oh! Oh, hey, that's mine.
-No, it's mine, I found it on the beach. Finders keepers.
-No! Give it back, give it back, now.
-You want this hat back?
-Yes, it was made by my papa.
Over here, over here, I got it.
Give me back my hat or this will finish badly.
-Can you believe that ridiculous suit?
-Why don't you just run along to school? Go to school, puppet boy.
Are you ordering me?
The only one who can give me orders, Pinocchio.
-And just who is Pinocchio?
-What kind of name is that? You say your name is Pinocchio?
-Yes, and I want my hat back! Now!
Over here! Ha-ha!
Don't say cuckoo to to me, now I'll take care of all of you.
Amazing! Fight! Let me get in there.
-No, it's mine.
-Wait for me!
Over here, give it back. I want my hat back. Give it back.
It's mine! Give it back!
-Take that, puppet!
Help me, help me, I'm hurt.
I think I'll die.
What's wrong with you? Eugenio?
He's dying, might be.
Let's get out of here.
Eugenio? It wasn't me. Open your eyes, Eugenio.
Eugenio, answer me, answer me.
All right, what's happening here?
Officers, me and my friends were having some fun before class and all of a sudden he, he felt sick.
Sick isn't the word. The poor boy has a gash on his temple.
-Who did this?
-I don't know.
And what was he struck with?
Well, that book over there.
And who owns this book?
-That's all we need to know.
He seems to be seriously hurt.
Men, I want you to take this boy straight to the hospital.
As for you, puppet, you are going right to jail.
Excuse me, brave and fearless officers.
Would you mind putting your big coats over me? I'm so embarrassed.
You should have thought about that before.
Excuse me, most brave and fearless officers, can we go another way so I don't have to pass my house?
No. March. And keep it moving.
Wait, stop him, stop right there.
This way, hurry!
I'm free! I'm free! Argh! Argh!
Ah ha ha ha, what do we have here?
-What are you doing on my property? You're the one who's been stealing my grapes?
I'm a very good boy.
-I was on my way to school.
-So you go to school in handcuffs?
What a fine school. I think you escape from prison, you devil.
I'm going to leave that trap on your foot.
And I'm going to teach a lesson you won't soon forget.
You're just what I've been looking for since the death of my poor watchdog.
You'll be a perfect replacement.
I've never been a watchdog before!
If you hear thieves, you just bark.
-Like that! Bow-wow.
Ouch, I'm so cold and scared.
Bow-how. It serves me right.
Sad but true.
I have to put up with it.
-Shh, it's me.
Shh! What's wrong with you? Be a good dog.
Excuse me, but I'm not a dog.
I'm a puppet.
A puppet? I'm not sure I believe you.
If you really are a puppet, answer me just one question.
Tell me, which are the best lollipops in the world?
I know, the answer is tangerine.
And why is that?
Because it's the flavour of paradise.
You noble spirit, Leonardo.
I'm so happy to see you again.
-I cannot begin to tell you.
But how did you get here?
-You know what I can use these chickens for?
For eight chickens, I can get two rides on a rocking horse. Let's go.
Yes. No wait, listen, stealing is not a nice thing.
So get me out of these, Leonardo, and then we can both go to school tomorrow, huh?
I'm not interested, Pinocchio.
They tamed you, huh?
Don't worry, I'll free you.
But I'm not leaving here without taking four chickens.
What's going on? Thieves!
-Now I've caught you!
-Go, my friend, before you get hurt.
Thank you, noble spirit.
But, but it's late, I shouldn't... shouldn't bother you?
You're not bothering me at all, come in.
No, I won't disturb you?
Now tell me, how did school go today?
Well, we started with the alphabet.
And letters. Quite a few of those.
A, B, G, I, K. Elephant.
I can't remember them all now.
And the teacher gave us a pop quiz
and I got, uh, 100.
What was your score?
Ah, well, I think 100.
Maybe 95. I can't remember.
Oh fairy, it's not true, it's not true.
I wanted to go to school, I really meant to go.
You can't imagine what happened.
Coming home, I thought,
"Now how can I face my kind sweet fairy like this?
"Will she be angry with me?
"For so many lies, so many lies!
"Could she find it in her heart to forgive me?"
Then I asked myself, "Is it possible that her heart is big enough?"
I thought, "No, no," but then, "Yes, of course it is.
"It's as big as the world."
I thought, "If she forgives me, she's the most good and beautiful fairy there ever was.
"If she doesn't forgive me, she's not.
"But in my opinion she is, so she will forgive me, that wonderful fairy."
So I told myself, "Go home and see what she has to say," because
since my first day, fairy, my life hasn't had one half-hour of peace.
Not one half-hour.
And do you see what happens when you break your promises?
Yes. I am bad, it's sad but true. I deserve to be punished.
No, Pinocchio, I'm not going to punish you.
I see that now you've truly learnt your lesson.
And so, your wish will now come true.
I'll grant your wish to become a real boy.
-Like the others. Are you happy?
It's all I've wanted my whole life.
So you're going to be good?
I've already become good, fairy.
I really learned my lesson this time. I really have, fairy.
I believe you, Pinocchio.
I can tell that you are sincere.
Last one is a rotten egg.
Hurry up, slowcoach.
I want you to know, Pinocchio, this is a special day.
The fairy was so kind to invite us to this splendid house
for this celebration with your new schoolmates and myself.
Welcome, welcome to you all.
And the slicing of this cake is a symbol of our welcoming Pinocchio into the world of good boys.
I'll even let you choose where you sit.
Yes, who do I want to sit next to?
Well, let's see.
-I like... Oh! Stop!
I don't know where he could be.
Look, that Leonardo is at the bottom of his class. He has no chance of passing.
I think we should cut the cake.
-Yes, yes, cut the cake.
-Cut it. Yes.
-Wait a minute! He's my best friend, I like him.
He'd like the party. I've got to find him.
Pinocchio, you need to learn to do as you're told.
You're making a big mistake because of Leonardo.
Good boy, Pinocchio, I'm proud that you're being so loyal.
Of course on this, the most important day of your life, you'd want your best friend here with you.
You really pleased me. Well done. Go find him and come back soon, like you promised.
Bye fairy. I'll be right back. Wait for me. Goodbye.
Leonardo! What are you doing here?
I'd been looking everywhere for you.
Gosh, you won't believe me, but my luck is about to change.
Tomorrow I stop being a puppet and become a boy, just like you! A real boy.
Well, good for you.
What? Leonardo, you're missing a great party! The fairy planned it.
You're the only one missing, come on.
Impossible. I'm leaving tonight.
And I'm going far, far away.
-Where are you going?
It's the best place in the world.
And what is it called?
It's called Fun Forever Land.
Beautiful name. Fun Forever.
What are you waiting for? Come on.
No. No. I'm staying here with the fairy.
You're crazy. What a mistake.
No, I promised her and...
Tell me, what is it like?
I guess I could tell you a thing or two.
The first thing, it's a place where no-one ever has to work.
There are no books, no teachers, and no-one goes to school on Sundays.
What a place.
But...but nobody goes to school here on Sundays either.
Yeah, but my point is in this place a week is seven Sundays.
Listen to this. All school holidays start on the first of January and finish on the last day of December.
And that's a Sunday?
-So what do you do all day in Fun Forever Land?
Just having fun doing whatever you like from morning till night.
-What do you say? Is it yes or no?
I promised the fairy I'd come home immediately.
I promised it to her face. Goodbye then, for real. Have a good trip.
Must be joking, a place with no school.
Just one...one last thing. Are you certain, absolutely certain,
that school holidays start on the first day of January
and end on the last, but the absolute last day of December? Are you absolutely certain?
He'll be back.
I must go, I'm already late. I've got to get back, Leonardo.
Bye, I have to leave.
Bye-bye. See you, Pinocchio.
-Hey, it's here.
It's the wagon that's coming for me.
For you? Wonderful.
Listen, Leonardo. Listen.
I'll just stay for a little while.
I'll just look at the wagon and then I'll go.
Good evening, kiddies.
Too bad my wagon is already full.
I'll ride out here.
And you, my dear, will you stay or would you care to join us?
# At night you're all a dreaming
# And I don't sleep a wink
# At night you're all a dreaming... #
Get ready to pull the rope. I want to win, so pull hard. Are you ready?
Come on, guys. You have to tug really hard.
Tug! Tug! Here we go, here we go.
We won! Leonardo!
-What did I tell you?
My goodness, it's a nightmare.
How on Earth am I going to find him?
Right up here!
HE SHOUTS AND WHOOPS
I say, watch it! Look out below! Careful!
Pinocchio, where are you?
No, don't bite!
Pinocchio, there you are.
I'm going to make this quick. Get us out of here.
No spinning, no jumping.
Steady, steady, I feel nauseous.
I think I'm going to throw up.
Where are you? I'm going to get you.
Where are you?
Listen, everyone, this is important.
-If you don't get out of here, you'll be turned into donkeys.
-It's your turn!
They don't pay me enough for this job.
This isn't so good.
Wait, wait, don't shoot!
I fell down.
-Leonardo, Leonardo, why is everyone sleeping?
-Come on, what do you want to do now?
-Sleep. I'm tired.
Sleep? I don't want to go to sleep.
I got a lot of things I still want to do.
I know. Just a couple of hours.
After that, we'll start again.
-I can't wait until tomorrow, Leonardo.
-Yes, I love it.
-You didn't even want to come.
It's true. Leonardo, I've never been so happy and excited and it's really all thanks to you.
There's no reason to thank me.
I was happy to do it.
Leonardo, the Head Master,
I heard him saying, "Leonardo has no chance of passing." He's going to fail you.
I know, but I forgive him.
Ah, noble spirit.
Good night, my good friend.
Good night, my good friend.
A DONKEY BRAYS IN THE DISTANCE
Ah, they've finally finished.
I'll show you what I've got. I'm expecting a good price.
As you can see, they're young and freshly made.
-That one is ready.
-I'll buy it.
-How many do you want this year?
Make it 50. They're all strong ones I can take a whip at, right?
-There's a fine one.
-Fine indeed. How many do you want?
I'll take 50 or so like him.
When can we take them away?
You can take by the minute.
Tell me, do you have something just like the one, you know, like last year?
I believe you'll find anything you need.
All these boys will become donkeys. First they grow ears, then a tail then hee-haw!
Come here, you little beast.
They're all good. Look at its pretty little muzzle. Go, go, go!
What did you boys think you'd become?
Doctors? Lawyers? Professors?
No, stupid donkeys, that's what.
Oh, it's morning already. I can't wait to start again.
What a wonderful life.
Come on, Leonardo. Let's go.
What are...what are these?
These are donkey ears.
All big and hairy.
Look at them. I don't want them.
Ow! I don't want them.
I can't go out like this. Look!
Is Leonardo playing a trick on me?
It's all his fault.
I'm going... I'm going to go and tell him off.
BANGING AT THE DOOR
Leonardo, it's me, Pinocchio.
Come in, come in.
Good morning, Leonard. How are you?
Leonardo, would you mind telling me why you've got a towel on your head?
Well, it's because the doctor ordered it. I hurt my...ankle.
Oh, poor Leonardo.
What about you?
I hurt my...
I've got a really sore elbow and so I guess we had the same doctor.
-Yes, I know.
It's a shame.
Leonardo, would you do me a favour?
Of course. You just name it.
Would you show me your ears?
Why not? But first, I want to see yours, my old friend, Pinocchio.
No. Let's make it a game.
I'll count to, um... Can you count?
You count to three and on the three we take off the towels at the same time.
One, and three.
Look at you!
Look at your ears!
you got, you got...
-What's this thing? Oh, no. My, oh, my, oh, my.
-It's a tail.
You've got a tail, Leonardo.
Do I have one, too?
-What do you mean, not yet?
-What am I going to do?
-Am I going to get one?
-I don't know, but I'm scared.
-What's happening to me? EHH!
What's happening to me? EHH! Pinocchio, help me, Pinocchio!
Leonardo, you've turned into a donkey!
Oh, no! I've got a tail, too!
Oh, help me, I've got a tail!
It serves you right, Pinocchio!
Oh! Oh, Cricket! Thank goodness you managed to find me!
If only I'd listened to the fairy, I'd be a real boy by now. But starting tomorrow, I promise you...
Enough! There's no point in making promises now, Pinocchio.
You've lost your chance to become a real boy like all the others.
Oh, dear! What will to happen to me now?
You'll become a donkey, just like your friend here.
Only good for pulling a cart.
It's too late for your tears.
No, no! Please don't go, Cricket!
I promise I'll work hard, I'll do anything.
I'll work... Don't leave mee-haw!
Leonardo, was that me?
-It was mee-haw!
Esteemed auditors, ladyships and most honorific gents,
prepare to witness that quadruple wonder who has boggled the eyes
of the crowned heads of the principal principalities of the world!
That donkey of donkeys, Pinocchio!
Fear not the animal beastiosity extruded from his savage gaze.
He's been well schooled in the amiable way of the whip.
Incredible, you say? How could this fierce
predator of the pampas be tamed? Behold!
What? Dead? No!
My friends, when is a donkey not a donkey?
When he's playing possum!
But in all gravity, my dear publicans, what you have seen yet is nothing.
This marvellous beast of burden has been taught to dance, to leap through flaming rings of fire...
Oh, sweet fairy!
Quiet, you miserable pachyderm! I apologise to this augusted assemblance for that display.
It only goes to demonstrate you can take the animal out of the wild,
but you cannot take the animal out of the animal.
Be that as it were, it shan't happen again.
All right, Pinocchio, up you go! Show the gentlemen and the ladies of the evening,
show them what they paid their money for - the Ring of Fire!
A fall. Yes, a truly magnificent fall.
Truly death-defying, yes.
Why isn't he getting up? What's wrong with his leg, huh?
Music, maestro, in the words of the immortal bard. Send in the clowns!
He's no good to us if he's limping.
Take him down to the ocean and throw him.
Say farewell to Pinocchio, the donkey of donkeys!
Give him a hand, my friends - or even two.
The great Pinocchio, huh?
Well, have a nice swim!
Oh, my sweet fairy!
You saved me! You came to my rescue! You saved me!
The trouble I've caused, I'm so sorry!
But now I promise you, fairy, from now on, I'm going to be a really good boy and I'll...
Quick, Pinocchio, hurry! Swim faster!
-But I can't swim any faster - I'm swimming as fast as I can!
-Behind you! Behind you!
So you do care about me?
Swim as fast as you can! Pinocchio!
You will keep me safe forever!
-Pinocchio, it's behind you!
Oh, fairy! I've been swallowed!
I've been swallowed up by a monster fish!
I hope he burps and gets a tummy ache, a really bad one.
Oh, it had to happen just as I was about to go home with the fairy!
I bet this monster fish is full of...monster fish!
-Oh, what kind of place is this, fairy?
I wonder who that is. I'm so scared!
Who's there? Is anyone there?
No! I'm a fish!
I'm just a tuna - gloog, gloog!
And you? What kind of fish are you?
-I'm not a fish at all.
I'm a poor old man.
-My name's Geppetto...
-My own papa, my papa!
-..I'm here because of my son, who hope to never see again.
He's such a bad boy!
If he were here now, I'd give him such a thrashing, that's what I would do. It's true.
Really?! Gloog, gloog! Is that so?
Has your son really been that bad? Gloog, gloog!
I gave him all my love, just hoping to make a good boy out of him.
-I even had the bad luck of going to jail for him, Mr Tuna.
Why, he's such a bad boy.
It isn't true, I'm so sorry.
Ungrateful, a liar, without heart, too. So he is.
While I sit in here and rot, I bet he's off enjoying himself,
-having the time of his life.
Who knows where? So, you see now what a bad son I have, Mr Tuna?
Why is it you're crying, sir?
are very sensitive, we cry at everything!
Anyway, for me, it's nearly finished, Mr Tuna.
I'll... I'll never get to see my son again.
Gloog, gloog. What if you saw him right now, gloog, gloog? What would you do?
What do you expect, Mr Tuna?
I'm his papa, he's my little boy.
And in spite of everything, I love him.
If he were here now, I'd...
I'd give them a great big hug and kiss him again and again.
I would die of joy.
But it cannot be.
I'm not a tuna!
It's me, Pinocchio, the puppet! Your son! Your one and only son!
Pinocchio! Oh, it cannot be!
I'll help you, don't worry.
Look, Papa. Papa, look.
Papa, let's go! It will take us home!
-I'm too old!
-Let's go! Let's go, Papa!
-I'm afraid... give me my...give me my wig back!
Get it yourself! Come and get it!
-Papa! Papa, where are you?! I've got your wig!
-I can't swim!
Hold on, Papa! We're going home!
I must have a glass of milk.
If I don't have one soon, I'll die.
Listen, there's a farmer nearby named George.
He has a nice cow and maybe he can help us.
-See if you can do a bit of a donkey work for him and earn a glass of milk for me?
-George, you said, Papa?
All right, then. Let me get you home, then I'll go find this farmer and do some work right away.
But you're no good at anything!
Well done, Pinocchio.
So today I worked two extra hours, Papa, and so Farmer George gave me a coin.
And with this coin, you know what I bought, Papa? This lovely lollipop.
Yes, but it's for tonight.
Tonight I'll have it for dinner.
I won't eat all of it tonight - half for tonight, half for my...
I'll have three licks here tonight, and tomorrow night I'll have three licks on that side. Wanna see?
One, two, three.
Will you look at these?
We have the best carrots and cabbages on the market.
Good job, Pinocchio! Only two hours to go.
No, Mr Farmer George, I wanna keep working until dark so I can earn an extra glass of milk for my father.
He thinks he's only getting one, you see, but I'll surprise him, huh?
Good boy! You sure are a hard worker.
Not even my donkey works that hard.
What? You have a donkey?
Yes, but he's sick now.
I'm afraid I made him work way too hard and now he is all worn-out, poor thing.
These carrots are amazing!
They're sweet as candy.
OK, Pinocchio, I've got to go. Come on, Cinderella, let's go.
Giddy up! Come on, come on, let's go.
You'd like another cup, wouldn't you, Papa?
Of course it would be nice to have another one,
-but I guess it will have to wait until tomorrow.
Oh, what a handsome donkey you are!
How are you? Huh?
Are you sick, donkey?
Oh, cheer up, cheer up.
I'm so sorry you're sick.
You're such a lovely donkey, you're a beauty.
You look familiar to me.
I have the feeling that I know you.
Noble spirit, is that you?!
It IS you!
I'll help you! It's you, Leonardo, it's you!
You, Leonardo! Look who's here.
I'm so glad to see you again,
What's wrong with you?
Hey, Leonardo, look.
Leonardo, look what I've got.
Leonardo, it's tangerine.
The flavour of paradise.
Have some more.
Leonardo, it's tangerine, Leonardo.
Did he die, Pinocchio?
Why are you crying over my donkey?
The donkey was a friend of mine.
He was my best friend at school.
That must be some great school where a donkey becomes your best friend.
-What was your teacher, a rooster(?)
Come on, it's work time, right?
Very good. Very good.
I'm starting to feel so much better today.
But, Pinocchio, are you feeling OK?
You look tired, you know?
What? Tired? Papa, no, no, no.
I'm a strong puppet.
You made me very well, Papa.
I'll sleep later.
Now, I want to finish weaving those baskets, so I can sell them
and get some money and then I'll buy a nice new jacket for you, Papa.
Thank you. Well done, Pinocchio.
I could really use a beautiful new jacket that will keep me nice and warm.
Oh, and also, I'd like one with black stripes here and here.
Yes, pinstripes, right here.
But, Pin... Pinocchio? What's going on?
-What, are you falling asleep?
-I thought you were going to finish weaving those baskets.
Yes. Yes, yes. I'm on my way. I'll do them outside.
So I won't keep you up, Papa.
-I'll go. The milk... I...
-No, no, no, no.
-You drank it all up, didn't you?
-I drank all of it.
Very good. Very good.
-Well done, Pinocchio.
As you have such a kind heart, you deserve praise and a lot of joy.
You have made it.
Oh, Fairy, the wonderful things I've learned from you.
I'll never forget them. Never ever.
If you continue down this road, you'll know great happiness.
Goodbye, fairy. So long!
Good night, Mr Pinocchio.
Oh, bye. Bye, Medoro, goodbye.
Goodbye to you, you naughty boy!
Oh, Cricket. Are you here too? Are you going?
I'm afraid so. But I'll stay if you want.
No, no, no. I, er...
I...I was just asking. I'm sure you're really busy. Goodbye.
Move, little ones!
-Medoro. It isn't happening again?
This is the last time I'm doing this. Tomorrow you're coming with me, and we'll buy you some glasses.
Though he was such a beautiful puppet.
Papa. Whoa, Papa.
Do you see, huh? And how about this?
But, Papa...Papa, what's going on?
Why is everything different all of a sudden?
This is all because of you, Pinocchio.
Because of me, Papa?
Yes, because when naughty children change and become good, they have the power to remake
everything around them with joy, serenity, as you can see. Right?
And the puppet, where's it hiding?
Oh, he's over there, see?
How funny I was when I was a puppet.
And how happy I am that I've finally become a real boy, Papa.
-Go to school and make me proud.
Thanks! So long, Papa.
-Come in, Pinocchio.
