After a magical log of wood lands outside the shop of a woodcarver named Geppetto, he carves the block out into a puppet which he names Pinocchio. The puppet comes to live and begins acting mischievously. He refuses to go to school instead going on naughty adventures such as burying his money in the ground, hoping to grow a money tree. He makes friends with Fox and Cat, a pair of thieves who guide him along in mischievous manners. Pinocchio is soon visited by the Blue Fairy who tells him that he will get in big trouble if he does not change his ways.
