Plot Summary: Derived from the classic children story and with Disney influences, this anime tells the adventures of Pinocchio, a selfish, arrogant and prankish wood doll that desires to be human. Pinocchio is always lying and creating a chaos to his grandfather and the ones near him. The anime is sad, Pinocchio is always suffering for his choices and he is constantly punished by a fairy that monitors his lies and his life. At certain point in the series, Pinochio is kidnapped and turned into a slave doll, while his grandfather looks for him, starving. Depressing and sadistic sometimes.
