Although it may lack the heart-tugging appeal of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, the consensus among animation fans is that 1940's Pinocchio remains the most perfect animated feature Walt Disney produced.

The charm, humor and loving care with which it treats its inanimate characters puts it in a class by itself.

It still is the best thing Mr. Disney has done and therefore the best cartoon ever made.

Probably shows Disney's virtues and vices more clearly than any other cartoon.

The moral lessons include a literalization of metaphors about lying and other forms of misbehaving, and the grasp of a little boy's emotions and behavior often borders on the uncanny.

Was there ever a scarier, more exciting animated feature than Pinocchio?
