Pinocchio runs away from home and tumbles into a series of madcap adventures: he meets the puppeteer Mangiafuoco, who almost throws him on the fire; he is tricked by two petty gangsters, the Fox and the Cat: he is abducted and transformed him into a donkey by an evil coachman - and then sold to a circus-owner who wants to turn him into salami. Meanwhile, Geppetto is searching desperately for Pinocchio and ends up being swallowed by a whale. But at the end of a long, adventurous journey, Pinocchio -- having learned to be considerate and courageous -- manages to rescue his father from the whale and become a real boy. -- (C) FFP
