Once in a small village there live a lonely woodcutter name Geppetto -- who always dreamed of having a little boy of his own. So one day he carved a puppet from a piece of wood and anmed him Pinocchio. When the little puppet magically comes to life it's a dream come true. Except Pinocchio turns out to be not such a nice little boy after all! In fact, Pinocchi is rather awful. He loves nothing better than playing tricks on people and getting into michief and telling lies. For Pinocchio playing and loafing is much more fun than working or studying or going to school.
But as Pinocchio discovers -- much to his dismay -- boys who spend all their time having fun earn nothing but trouble.
