Disney Blog: 70th Anniversary of Pinocchio

November 30th, 2008

An article from Laughing Place reminded me that there is a 70th Anniversary edition of Pinocchio that was released. Even though home video isn't quite the focus of this site, this was definitely one of the key movies in Disney's origins.

Pinocchio was Walt Disney’s second animated feature and featured vibrant hand drawn animation and amazing music like the Academy Award® winning song “When You Wish upon a Star.” Its story became an instant classic and the characters of Pinocchio, Geppetto the puppet maker, the Blue Fairy and Jiminy Cricket.

Pinocchio has never been one of my favorite Disney movies…but that could just be because Jiminy Cricket was the character that they used in my "Safety Town" videos that had to watch as a kid :) Regardless of my opinion, it still has been a very critical movie in Disney's history and you should make sure you see it at some point !!
