Pinocchio (1940)

Walt Disney’s follow-up to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (at the time the highest grossing film ever and the first full-length animated movie) was Pinocchio – the story of wood-carver Geppetto and his puppet creation Pinocchio, brought to life by a blue fairy. Based on the 1883 childrens book by Carlo Collodi. Named the second best animated movie of all time by the American Film Institute in 2008.

Pinocchio is promised life as a real boy if he can prove himself "brave, truthful and unselfish". He embarks on the journey with the help of his personified conscience Jiminy Cricket and a host of other characters. Features the iconic tune When You Wish Upon a Star which picked up the Best Original Song Oscar.

Best Original Score and Best Original Song winner at the 1941 Academy Awards.

It still is the best thing Mr. Disney has done and therefore the best cartoon ever made.

Was there ever a scarier, more exciting animated feature than Pinocchio?

Not up there with the very top echelon of Disney classics, but Pinocchio will still work its magic on younger viewers.
