Cool Disney Insert

In the opening of Pinocchio (1940) when Jiminy Cricket pulls a book from the shelf, Alice in Wonderland (1951) and Peter Pan (1953) can also be seen. Since these movies had not been produced yet, this could have been foreshadowing movies to come. This is one of my favorite Disney facts, I didn't realize this one as a kid!

Kill Pinocchio?

Pinncchio was originally a series of stories created by Italian writer Carlo Collodi, whose real name is Carlo Lorenzini. The stories appeared in a newspaper and at one time Lorenzini wanted to kill Pinocchio off by hanging! His audience reacted negatively, so Pinocchio "escaped" since he was made of wood and couldn't be suffocated.

The Pinocchio Paradox

If he says his nose will grow now, it would be a lie because it only grows when he lies. So then it WOULD grow, but that would mean he's telling the truth, so it shouldn't grow. So what do you think will happen: will it grow, stay, or make your head explode from overthinking?
