The Carpenter Geppetto builds a marionette and names it Pinocchio. But, on his numerous adventures, the puppet runs into quite a bit of trouble. Fortunately, the tooth fairy comes to help, giving him a raven, an owl and a talking cricket. Pinocchio later finds himself on the Island of Toys and is transformed into a donkey. After a brave escape, he ends up in the belly of a shark where he saves Geppetto, who was also swallowed by the shark while searching at sea for Pinocchio.
