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>

Hilarious satire of Pinocchio
29 August 2002 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

Terrific Canadian cartoon which takes on the rather silly story of "Pinocchio." The puppeteer here is nuts, however, and the "real boy" remains inanimate as he is essentially dragged through life. The dipsy-doodle ending is the perfect topper. One of the funniest pieces of animation I've ever seen. I still laugh when I think of an inanimate puppet staffing the complaint/return window of a department store, then being promoted when the return rate goes down to zero.
