While Pincchio's creator-'daddy' Gepetto is ill in bed, the rascal and mate visit the circus. There cross-dressing freak-show boss Lorenzini 'Madame Flambeau' ends up selling them an elixir as 'cure', which actually enables him to recruit the debtors as his freak acts.Written by
Under the magic spell, Pinochio becomes a boy and Jephetto a wooden puppet.
The previous writers comments were not based on The New Adventures of Pinochio. In this version Martin Landau (Jeppeto) becomes a puppet when he accidentally drinks a magic potion. An English boy plays his son in the title role and gives a marvelous sensitive performance. Except for some poor special effects, this Pinochio is really fun, believable and a must see. Forget the previous versions. Jeppeto is captured by a traveling circus, and Pinochio with his friend spends his time trying to rescue him, and remove the evil spell. While attempting to rescue Jepetto, Pinochio is captured, falls under this spell and he becomes a wooden boy, This movie is really fun,hard to find. If you are in Europe I think you will be able to see it.
