Pinocchio: The Series (樫の木モック Kashi no Ki Mokku) is an anime series from 1972, created by Tatsunoko Productions. The story is based on the novel The Adventures of Pinocchio by Italian author Carlo Collodi.

Synopsis

The story of an extremely gullible, naive and morally confused wooden puppet brought to life by a fairy to give him a lonely poor carpenter a son he's always wanted.

Dubbing History

Main article: The Adventures of Pinocchio

The series was originally adapted in English in 1984 as a compilation film titled The Adventures of Pinocchio, consisting of several episodes edited together to create a 90-minute movie. The film released on VHS by American Way, Inc. with a dub directed by Jim Terry.

Later, the entire series was adapted into English in the 1990s by Saban Entertainment under the title Pinocchio: The Series (also known as Saban's Adventures of Pinocchio). This version was shown in the United States on weekday mornings on HBO in 1992. The on-screen title was given as Pinocchio The Series, to emphasize the fact that this was an independent production, unrelated to the Disney feature.
