Wooden Pinocchio gets tricked from his lessons and is captured by the circus. His father is swallowed by a giant fish and dragged unto the depths. Pinocchio is dishonest and foolish and his actions cost the happiness of those who care for him including the cricket.
I wish they made a version where he buries his father, just as a way to close the loop.
Poor talking cricket... in the original story he makes his cameo appearance in Chapter 4... and is promptly killed by Pinocchio.
Of course in the movie of Disney fame Geppetto is swallowed by a whale not a fish, sort of the opposite of Jonah who was swallowed by a “great fish". In the original story (of Pinnochio not Jonah) the father was actually swallowed by a The Terrible Dogfish (shark... with asthma).
Anyway, since by the end of the story Pinnochio is a real boy we can be certain that he one day buried his father.
I couldn't have imagined the depths this country would go to ensure he would be POTUS 46.
Yes, I couldn't agree more... I couldn't have imagined the depths some republicans would go to lie and claim that 46 wasn't elected when clearly he fairly and honestly was.
