Saban's Adventures of Pinocchio

Carved from a branch from an ancient oak, named Pinocchio by the toymaker Geppetto and brought to live by the Oak Fairy: Pinocchio wishes to one day become a real boy. Many trials await him along the way, from evil puppet masters, wicked witches and the general cruelty of humanity. With the guidance of Crickety Cricket, the wisdom of his Fairy God Mother and the help of his father, Pinocchio tries hard to find it in himself to be brave, honest and truthful, in the hope that one day his dream will come true.
