Audience Reviews for Pinocchio and the Emperor of the Night

½

Highly underrated and quite dark animated feature from 1987 and from the makers of "He-Man", "She-Ra", "Bravestarr", "Ghost Busters" and "Star Trek The Animated Series" Filmation. Featuring the voices of James Earl Jones, Ed Asner, Scott Grimes, Tom Bosley and Rickie Lee Jones, it's a well animated and well done animated movie that i remember seeing in a theater when i was a young boy and it scared the piss out of me especially that terrifying scene where Puppetino turns Pinocchio into a Puppet. A must see especially on Youtube!

I had this video when I was little and I thought the bad guy puppet master dude was really scary. This goes to show that it might be too scary for really young children, but at least the happy ending was somewhat of a redemption.
