What books appear in the opening scene of Pinocchio?
The classic Disney animation, PINOCCHIO, debuted this week in 1940 (February 23). In the opening scene, after the credits roll, “When You Wish Upon a Star” begins to play and a spotlight shines on a tiny singing insect affectionately known as Jiminy Cricket. If you look to the left of the screen during this now-iconic musical number, you will see two books, Peter Pan and Alice in Wonderland. These two stories were in the process of being developed for the big screen at the time of PINOCCHIO‘s release. ALICE IN WONDERLAND would be released in 1951 and PETER PAN in 1953.
