"This version of PINOCCHIO from FAERIE TALE THEATRE is a wonderful adaptation of Carlo Collodi's timeless classic, about a wooden puppet who is brought to life thanks to a lonely man's desire to become a father.
Paul Reubens (aka Pee-Wee Herman) plays the title role with Carl Reiner as Geppetto, Pinocchio's loving father. Lainie Kazan is a sassy delight as Sophia, the Blue Fairy who grants the gift of life to Pinocchio, and James Coburn is fantastic as the evil Gypsy. Also in the cast are James Belushi and Michael Richards.
One of the best!"
The BEST of them all!!

"I always liked this Fairy Tale Theater production the best! Paul Reubens is PERFECT as Pinocchio and with a supporting cast of folks including the likes of James Coburn and Carl Reiner, it can't be beat!
It comes from a time when cable was fun and not full of itself. Get this and be reminded of that time and have FUN!!"

"I remember my mom renting these video's from the public library when I was a kid. I found an old Shelly Duval tape in my basement and had to go research more. I was so excited when I found the Faerie Tale Theatre. When I watched them, I was suprised to see how many famous actors have participated in the videos. I have already purchased most of the videos on DVD and plan to collect the whole set!"
