MPAA Rating: NR

My Rating: 3 and up

My * Rating: 8.5

What a wonderful movie for anyone to watch! I have loved this little film since I was four and I would hate to loose it. I just finished watching it and I can't believe how much I still enjoyed it. Buy it for your kids! They will love it so much that they might even break the tape by watching it so much.

My mom came across this film while it was being shown on the Disney channel often, and so my mom taped it for me. I retaped it several times after the first taping because the picture kept on getting fuzzy or the sound cracking, or the like.

Sandy Duncan is marvelous in the role of Pinocchio, but the real star of the show is Danny Kaye as Gepetto, the aging woodcarver. The songs they sing are marvelous. One couldn't ask for a more joyous 73 minutes!
