Storyline

A family adventure featuring a helpful lesson in listening to your parents and the importance of family. This creative parody of the beloved story of Pinocchio is a classic retelling with a clever VeggieTales twist. Once upon a time, a lonely toymaker named Gelato decided to carve a little boy out of wood. Imagine his surprise when he learned that this little toy boy could walk ... and talk ... and definitely had a mind of his own! When Pistachio tries to do things his way he lands in a "whale" of a situation! Will he decide to listen to the wisdom of a loving father in time to save his whole family from becoming fish food?
