Pinocchio was released by Walt Disney in 1940 and was the second full length animated feature by Disney. The plot of the film involves an old wood-carver named Geppetto who carves a wooden puppet named Pinocchio who is brought to life by a blue fairy, who tells him he can become a real boy if he proves himself “brave, truthful, and unselfish”. This 2 piece set includes a delicate and beautiful animation drawing of the Blue Fairy bringing Pinoke to life and a large drawing of Pinoke just as he is magically given life.

After singing the film’s signature song “When You Wish Upon a Star”, Jiminy Cricket explains to the audience that he is going to tell a story of a wish coming true. In a flashback, he moves into the workshop of the woodworker Geppetto to warm himself from the cold. Jiminy watches as Geppetto finishes work on a wooden marionette whom he names Pinocchio. Before falling asleep, Geppetto makes a wish on a star that Pinocchio could be a real boy. During the night, the star, in the form of a Blue Fairy, visits the workshop to grant Geppetto’s wish. She makes Pinocchio come alive while remaining still a puppet. The fairy tells Pinocchio that if he wants to become a real boy of flesh and blood he must prove himself to be brave, truthful and unselfish and able to tell right from wrong by listening to his conscience. Pinocchio does not understand what a conscience is, and Jiminy Cricket appears to explain it to him. The Blue Fairy asks if Jiminy would serve as Pinocchio’s conscience, a task he accepts.
