Tiggerific Tuesday Disney Trivia: Pinocchio Debuted on this Day in 1940
On this date in 1940, Walt Disney released his second full-length animated feature, PINOCCHIO. The film, based on the 19th century book by Carlo Collodi about a wooden puppet who must prove himself worthy to become a real boy, premiered at the Central Theatre in New York City and cost $2.6 million to make, an exorbitant amount for the time period. According to This Day in Disney History, PINOCCHIO is felt by many film historians to be the most technically perfect of all the Disney animated features.
