Pinocchio
What is the secret
to this film's success?





Was it the academy award winning song "When You Wish Upon a Star"?
Or was it the character of Pinocchio, an innocent happy-go-lucky puppet with the simple wish to be a boy? Or is it the collection of amazingly diverse and lovable characters like Geppetto the toymaker? How can a character me made more lovable?
Or is it the crafty fox and his hapless side kick, actors, what a delightful pair of low lifes, made lovable in contrast to the wickedness of both the pupeteer (Dear we say Gypsy?) or the trecheriously evil 'maker of mules'?
What dangers lie in wait for the innocent wooden boy, and yet thanks to another remarkably likable hobo turned hero, Jiminy Cricket, good triumphs over evil.
And what colassal adventures!
Kidnapped and sold to a traveling show,seduced into a paradise of bad boy activities, that quickly turns into a slave factory of boys made into mules.
And just when all seems almost right Geppetto has been swallowed by a whale, and again tragedy,
Pinocchio drawns.

Can you think of any other animated film in which even a goldfish and cat play important roles, interwoven into such a tightly coregraphed adventure?

I have always loved the frisky tune sung by the crafty fox as they take Pinocchio away.
Hi-diddle-dee-dee (An actor's life for me)

Music by Leigh Harline / Lyrics by Ned Washington / Performed by Walter Catlett [John Worthington Foulfellow]

Hi-diddle-dee-dee
An actor's life for me
A high silk hat and a silver cane
A watch of gold with a diamond chain

Hi-diddle-dee-day
An actor's life is gay
It's great to be a celebrity
An actor's life for me

Hi-diddle-dee-dum
An actor's life is fun

Hi-diddle-dee-dee
An actor's life for me
A wax mustache and a beaver coat
A pony cart and a billy goat

Hi-diddle-dee-dum
An actor's life is fun
You wear your hair in a pompadour
You ride around in a coach and four
You stop and buy out a candy store
An actor's life for me!

Hi diddle dee dee
An actor's life for me
A high silk hat and a silver cane
A watch of gold and a diamond chain

Hi diddle dee dee
You sleep till after two
You promenade a big cigar
You tour the world in a private car
You dine on chicken and caviar
An actor's life for me!
