The New Adventures of Pinocchio is a syndicated stop motion animated television series produced by Rankin/Bass Productions in the United States and made by Dentsu Studios in Japan.[1] A total of 130 five-minute "chapters" were produced in 1960–61. These segments made up a series of five-chapter, 25-minute episodes.[2] The series was also aired on Fuji TV in Japan during 1963–64.


The series is narrated by an old wood carver Geppetto who explains on how he made a magically living puppet named Pinocchio, who can walk, jump, run and other things without strings. In addition, Pinocchio is also known to have his nose grow whenever he tell any lies on anything be it right or wrong. Displeased with the need to continue living as a puppet, Pinocchio sets off on a journey with his friend Cricket to find the Blue Fairy who can transform him into a real boy (in other words, a human) with her magic. But along the way, Pinocchio and Cricket encounters the two anthropomorphic animal cons, Foxy Q. Fibble and Cool S. Cat, as well as the greatest adventure, mishappening, danger and excitement than they would ever imagine.
