Still shot from the movie: Pinocchio (Disney’s).

Pinocchio (Disney’s)

When an aging wood caver (voiced by Christian Rub) uses his tool to construct a beautiful puppet, he names his creation Pinocchio (voiced by Dickie Jones) and wishes the little figure could be the son he longs for. Although his heart's desire is granted by the Blue Fairy (voice of Evelyn Venable), she cannot make Pinocchio into a real boy unless the wooden toy shows himself to be brave, truthful and unselfish.
