Storyline

A lonely woodcarver longs for a son, so he builds a wooden puppet and names it Spinnolio (sound familiar yet?). But the cricket appears on the windowsill and is eaten by the cat, and Spinnolio comes alive only in the mind of the crazy old man. Spinnolio is dragged to class by the kids, where he does great for deportment, but rotten on academics; he gets a job in the complaint/return department of a large store, where he gets promoted to management, in part because of his great listening skills. Written by Jon Reeves <jreeves@imdb.com>

So much fun!
21 February 2003 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

Very interesting version of Pinocchio! And funny too! This short tells the story of the life and times of Spinnolio, the puppet. He's treated like everybody else when he go to school, when he finds work. He even become a member of the Satan's Puppets, a biker gang! Hilarious!

Out of 100, I give it 78. That's good for **½ out of ****.

Seen in Sudbury, on December 31st, 2002.
