It’s all well and good that Pinocchio and company survived, but what about the hundreds of kids getting sold into donkey slavery? Therefore, this theory has it that Donkey was once a boy who was sent off to this very island and turned into a donkey. Pinocchio is the best example. This is what leads us to the first lie of the movie and ironically it is not told by Pinocchio. Even though, Disney is known for bright and cheerful movies, Disney is no stranger to the dark side. The Coachmanis the owner of the island and takes all the bad boys collected by himself (or others he hires for the job) from various towns and villages to the island. Pink bonnet?

Now obviously all this what happened to Pinocchio was all ‘worst case scenario’ BUT it sort of prepares one for life on these things can happen. Personally, I never thought much of Pinocchio, but perhaps if I saw it again I could somehow appreciate the dark parts for being faithful to the dark nature of classic children’s stories a la the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christen Anderson.

The Coachman may be got away unpunished,but after Pinocchio’s escape has probably interrupted his business on Pleasure Island. Ah,and pedophilia has a whole(or all)different meaning! Last but not least, is it impossible that Paris successfully revolts against a crazed judge who decided to bring the fight to their most precious cathedral in the square? One is explicit and means that that they leave and when they come back, they are donkeys incapable of speech. Also, as a child I was horrified of the donkey scene and it still til this day watching it years later meant a general visceral nightmare —painting a picture of a specific crime is outside the realm of what’s shown. That part is really disturbing. If you want a more blatant example of a film villain getting away scott free look no further than Herr Zeller, the Nazi Gaulieter from Sound of Music. It makes me want to look at all those people who say, “Oh, Pinocchio is the sweetest little Disney classic” and say, “You’re new here, right?” Compared to the stuff you outlined here, Hunchback of Notre Dame is downright tame. As for Tarzan and Atlantis… do tell. The cat cries over his corpse, the fish, the cricket, Gepetto, the audience, everyone. That’s exactly what gets to me as well.

The park was owned and operated by The Coachman, who made a fortune from his crooked deeds, and is seen in the film when the Coachman brings Pinocchio, Lampwick and a coachload of other boys to the park. No Disney movie dared to attempt what Pinocchio did. But yes, in a way he did come of age. It certainly was not the entrapped Gepetto and the dove was glowing white which reminds us of a heavenly figure. Free booze, free smokes, free property destruction, free ice cream, a fight club, and any old thing a young juvenile delinquent might want, per 1940s movie standards. Pleasure Island is an amusement park where kids can do whatever they want. She proceeded to warn Pinocchio that the rest of the journey must be taken alone. The funny thing about Pinocchio is that I didn’t see it until I was in my late teens despite having been in a production of Pinocchio (not the Disney version, but an adaptation of the story.

A few basics: never jump out of the car except at breaks in the track, always hold down to avoid the poles just above the track that knock you out of the car. As he sits on the beach, recovering from his painful ordeal, he gets a message from a dove sent by none other than the Blue Fairy. The theory suggests Pinocchio left Italy and changed his name to pursue a career that was not his fathers, as many did during the Rennaissance. I also found Disney Wiki’s analysis of their own movie a bit of an interesting read, particularly this chunk: “Origin– Eh… if it is, it’s not part of the Disney movie. follow your gut instinct, if something doesn’t feel right (Honest john, Stromboli, The Coachmen) etc, then it probably isn’t.. since Pinocchio didn’t have parents to upbring him with values, morals, etc. The first Disney main character who is definitely and certainly dead on-screen. The best way to hide something dark is to coat it with something dark. Whoa. So is it really right to say it was Pinocchio’s fault that he strayed towards “evil”? There goes Jiminy’s storyline. Gideon is a short, slender brown anthropomorphic cat with a tan face and a neck, a cream muzzle, green eyes, a lavender shirt with a yellow cape, white opera gloves, purple pants, and an old gray top hat. Everyone else is miserable. The island delivers on Honest John’s promise – it is a dazzling array of some of the most sophisticated and ambitious attractions ever to grace the Earth. I found it utterly disturbing, but still love it. The truth hurts, especially when it is implicit. In Italy, where the original story was written, the Donkey is a symbol of stupidity. The injustices towards animals are as real and now as they were then. This was not one that would have popped into my head until now. Pinocchio is a film that does stuff Disney never does. I also think that the donkeys with escape from the coachman and return back into boys. Like you said, the movie seems dark to a child, but even more dark to an adult.

That’s just the trouble with the world today.”. Good commentary and thorough analysis. I just watched it finally again: Wow, it’s really powerful! To see this, every last truth, lie, lesson, virtue and villain Pinocchio has to offer must be examined. Usually the bad guy always gets it in the end. Also, the evil influence of the island seems to wear off if the visitor is lucky enough to escape in time. I never noticed the dark elements depicted in the film, but I’m glad you pointed them out! Unhappy with his words, Pinocchio throws a hammer at the cricket, killing it. He did meet two monsters, he was tied up, and he was threatened with being chopped into firewood. And you notice that Pinocchio also has it more difficult than other Disney protagonists in a certain way. As the movie portrays it as a lie, here again is the second lie told by either the movie or Pinocchio himself, depending on how it is spun. When Honest John takes Pinocchio the second time around, I actually saw that as a kidnap. And it was kind of funny/lazy how a magical bird just sent a note to Pinocchio to tell him that Gepetto was swallowed by a whale, ha. It is implied to be an illegal or extremely notorious place, as hinted by J. Worthington Foulfellow. The slaver, child-trafficker, pedophile, murderer, or all four is still out there and till now remains the only Disney villain to get away with what he did.

Kids found something to be scared of adults found something else, including but not limited to slavery and pedophilia. You fall into a roller coaster car, and it's pretty obvious that there should be a LOT more safety features. It took enough liberties with their storytelling to an extent that even the artists behind the Hunchback of Notre Dame did not dare to attempt. I’ve actually been thinking that original Pinocchio and the many dark fairytale devices (the cat, fox, cricket etc.) You could say the same of bambi..people are the villains. This is perhaps a real lie. Not the most believable, but maybe the most interesting. Happily ever after only for some people. The disturbing part is that these boys were rebels and troublemakers who resented their family–Pleasure island is all about indulging in those things parents restrict you from. Disney tends to give a happily ever after, not just for the main character but for the entire Kingdom it is set in, if not the world. Yet the discussion was stifled because nobody could articulate quite why they had such dramatic reactions. Some of them were darker than others with Hunchback of Notre Dame usually taking the cake, some even putting Black Cauldron and Sleeping Beauty up on that special pedestal. The Internet is a Golden Corral for these theories and we eat them up like it’s a weekday special. Its very possible I never got into smoking because of how haunting this movie is. That makes no sense. Basically, anything Jews come up with is designed to unseat order in the universe, from Pinocchio to compound interest and nuclear weapons. Gepetto just sends Pinocchio, a new life, into the world without any advice or guidelines of what to avoid altogether. Honest John and Gideon continue their miserable lives in the Village based on misery,petty crimes,stupidity,illiteration,going in and outta the prison,incapable to fool Pinocchio now a real and responsible boy and they wasted the opportunity to exploit his unique “ability” of being a living,talking and stringless wooden puppet and without sense of value for money(just listen the song “HONEST JOHN”). Every time, even though I knew Pinocchio would escape because I watched it ten times, I prayed and prayed that Pinocchio would be ok. The Coachman got away with slavery and possible pedophilia and murder. I have never evaluated the movie as an adult but I am not surprised that you’ve found some of the adult themes like human trafficking and pedophilia. In the 1940 film, ill-behaved boys are sent to Pleasure Island and turned into donkeys. Pinocchio is the one and only exception. Sure, all 8-year olds want to drink and smoke and brawl. Well, first the flaws: it CAN be a little slow, particularly the scenes involving that Bad Fox and Stromboli… not that compelling. Pinocchio was trapped, tripped, sent to the theater, used, abused, and locked up. A plump man in a red suit spills piles of gold provided Honest John gets him ‘stupid little boys’ to take to a place called ‘Pleasure Island,’ a place John implies is illegal, fearing the law might come after them. I was born in rural Kentucky, USA and now live abroad in Lebanon where I majored in English Language and Literature. However, this is as far as she goes before laying the burden on Pinocchio to prove himself before being made of flesh and blood. I appreciate most of your thoughts and praise of the art of the film. you know just like how kids do when they get in trouble they will try to blame their friend or the other guy, but they will learn quick they cannot do this and cannot snitch, for if they don’t learn to take responsibility as children they will have a hell of a time as adults. And Disney is trying to teach little boys (and girls) the lesson of life AND TAKING RESPONSIBILITY for your own actions and not blame others, but be accountable. Unbeknownst to them, Jiminy follows him secretly. Is it impossible that a street rat can trick a mad sorcerer into becoming a genie by taking advantage of his pride? They get used, abused and thrown away and Pinocchio was no different. which is also for adults, yet kids will enjoy too but in their own way- a much less understanding of why. Once again, Honest John lures Pinocchio into his clutches under even more false pretenses. You HAVE to watch this lecture “Jordan Peterson – On Pinocchio”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3YhVruKGkjs. Pinocchio is probably the darkest of all Disney films. IN a last ditch effort to appear the victim in the trail of events that he enjoyed up till the end while not going to school as he was told, Pinocchio lies about being chopped into fire wood–even though it is clear that he is whole. We don’t see him in the angry mob after Maurice’s sanity is proved, nor in the fleeing masses from the castle, so presumably he’s allowed to continue running his Asylum and persecuting/torturing “crazy” inmates to his heart’s content. mirror the current President (not my president!) I think the Coachman’s comeuppance is that he eventually runs out of stupid little boys for his racket. Prove you are human, type cats in singular form below: The Artifice is a long-form writing platform that covers a wide spectrum of art forms. I haven’t seen this since I was a kid. It reveals his guilt and emphasizes the point that the original question was why he did not go to school. They were lies nonetheless told by either Pinocchio or the movie itself.

Until… the Blue Fairy decides to resurrect him as a real boy, flesh and blood. I love this article. Now everything makes sense. Beautiful! Early Disney films were seriously dark. “This isn’t what Disney is about.” If my student said that, I would’ve told him, or her to watch ” The Watcher in the woods.”. The story of the Metamorphoses bears many resemblances with Pinocchio by its story line, its spiritual allegory and its theme of occult initiation. Can we really say that it’s a ~child~’s fault if something this dark happens to them and not the adult’s? The movie tells the biggest truth of them all, and in so doing lives up to its name. Some of the movies from childhood are actually terrifying to revisit.. That would not work in a contemporary movie, as continuity lol. So, saying that they were monsters is a lie because of the connotation and the deception behind it: Pinocchio wants to suggest coercion rather than the embarrassing truth of being tricked. Not one of them sees any retribution. There’s the 1970’s Italian cartoon Un burattino di nome Pinocchio, it is very accurate to the book which is very dark the only part missing pretty much is where Pinocchio bites off the cat’s hand, the funny thing about it is Pinocchio looks like a girl his coat looks like a dress and he wears a pink bonnet. The Fairy is a very important god-like figure for him. She asks him why he did not go to school and Pinocchio starts with the truth. Pinocchio isn’t the only film that has the villain not getting his comeuppance. Must be analyzed much more than any other film. I watched this movie for the first time since my childhood and man, so many implicit dark meanings you only understand as an adult. Maybe that was Italian style way back when? The fox is afraid of being caught but the coachman insists there is no risk. Not only that but the characters were voiced by actors. I haven’t seen Pinocchio since I was probably 8 and I’m 37 now but it’s surprising how I instantly recollected the scenes you were describing. Pinocchio is known, far and wide as the puppet who strived to become a boy, who learned to live up to the qualities required of a real boy: to be ‘brave, truthful and unselfish.’ His quest is the primary plot with deviations and digressions, telling the story so realistically it puts modern kids to shame. ... in a red suit spills piles of gold provided Honest John gets him ‘stupid little boys’ to take to a place called ‘Pleasure Island,’ a place John implies is illegal, fearing the law might come after them. Level 5: Pleasure Island II Guys and gals, this is a hard level. I could not believe my eyes or ears; “pleasure island” “little boys that cut school” “they don’t come back as boys”. Lastly, it’s important to note that neither Disney nor the protagonists kill the “villain” in films such as Snow White. Pinocchio, once he regained his conscience, escaped the prison of profane life and escaped Pleasure Island. That’s just my take, but Pinocchio wasn’t raised. Pinocchio could’ve easily went to school and still face many challenges. Pinocchio may get second chances, but not these boys. It means a lot. No human in the movie acts like this so it must be assumed that the Blue Fairy wants Pinocchio to be that model. Another important thing to add is The Blue fairy in Pinocchio is teaching him the lesson of life. Multiple.

Pinocchio and the Soy Conspiracy is a YTP by Power Cat Productions. There’s also a 1970 animated version which is really good. Yet again, his nose grows but depending on how it is perceived, the lie is told by the movie or the character. He convinces him he is ill and tells him to take some time off at Pleasure Island. An argument can be made that there is no villain in that movie though. This creation is a puppet he names Pinocchio. Take your favorite fandoms with you and never miss a beat.

I cried whenever the Coachman came on the scene and was abusing the boys now turned into donkeys, Another movie I never liked was Bambi and I guess it was because Bambi’s mother dying offscreen never had an effect on me. I forgot to mention that many celebrities, have made big bucks from acting, and many of them are extremely rich. I’m French and in my country, everybody knows the tale of Pinocchio but quite few people have seen the Disney movie, I think it’s in part because of the date when the film was released (1940, a time when American films were banned in Axis-ruled countries, as France in this time), and because all that dark stuff inside the film.
