This version of Pinocchio tells a story of an extremely gullible, naive and morally confused wooden doll brought to life by a mystical blue fairy. Pinocchio (Mokku) is characterized as having many character faults which he must learn to overcome in order to be worthy of being granted humanity. Some of these character faults include selfishness, rudeness, insensitivity, indolence, obstinacy, over- trusting, self-pity, stupidity, disobedience, compulsive lying, arrogance, greed, cowardice, recklessness, cruelty, foolishness and an inability to learn from mistakes.

Throughout the entire series Pinocchio (Mokku), partly due to his own delinquency and repetitive disobedience, must undergo other costly ordeals of hardship and pain in which he is continuously tormented, persecuted, bullied, humiliated, tricked, ridiculed, ostracised, beaten, downtrodden and subjected to degrading and inhumane treatment. Its plain depiction of the austere reality of what it would be like to be literally subhuman growing up in a world of danger and hardship, makes this another good example of traditional Japanese stories, which teach moral observance through tough endurance.

Wow,an amazing adaption of a classic children's fairy and totally the complete opposite of the lighter campy american disney version we were used to growing up with

yes,you heard me correct,this is the infamouse tatsunoko anime version of Pinnochio which was dubbed here in the U.S by saban as "adventures of Pinnochio",i remember watching this as a kid on HBO back in 1992 on weekday mornings,and beleive me,this version of pinnochio was surprisingly insanley dark in tone.

many of the adventures and danger that pinnochio gets into in this version are very twisted and insane like with episode 5,he tried to take the life of a young read more
