Elderly woodcarver Geppetto carves a marionette called Pinocchio. The puppet comes to life and dreams of becoming a real boy. Disney’s second feature-length cartoon (after the triumph of 1937’s Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs), the film is an enduring masterpiece of the genre, adored by generations of viewers. Based on Italian author Carlo Collodi's celebrated children’s novel The Adventures of Pinocchio, this was the first animated feature to win a competitive Academy Award – actually winning two, for Best Original Score and for Best Original Song.
Directed by Hamilton Luske, Ben Sharpsteen
The film is dubbed in Greek
