A Disney Tale: A poor woodcutter, Geppetto, wishes on a star that his wooden puppet boy could be alive. A blue fairy grants his wish and the puppet, Pinocchio, is given life. On a series of adventures, he learns about right and wrong on his journey to becoming a real, human boy.
Disney Heroine: There is no real 'heroine' in this story and in fact, the only female characters are the Blue Fairy and Cleo the fish.
Disney Hero: Pinocchio is the 'hero' of the story, in as much as he is the main character. His heroic actions, though, don't really occur until the final act of the film where is saves Geppetto from the belly of Monstro the Whale. He is an interesting character. Gullible to a fault, naive and innocent, he only narrowly escapes various terrible fates through the efforts of Jiminy Cricket and the Blue Fairy. Were it not for them he would either be Stromboli's captive or transformed into a donkey and working in a salt mine. He is, though, much more endearing than Snow White as a main character. He is like the naughty child you can't help but have a soft spot for, particularly as the audience knows its the evil adult characters who are responsible...
