The Merry Puppet, 20 x 40, oil on linen
The Adventures of Pinocchio written by Carlo Collodi 1883 is one of the creepiest children's stories I've ever read. I love it!
The mild Walt Disney movie animation was released in theaters in 1940. It was initially a box office disaster.
In 1939 Milton Bradley created this board game based on Disney's motion picture.The box top depicts images of Pinocchio and his protector Jiminy Cricket.
