Disney Pinocchio-My Favorite Disney Animated Movie

Updated on June 3, 2014

Ever since I can remember I have loved Pinocchio, first as a beloved book and then as a Disney Movie. I was the third of four children and many of my childhood possessions were hand-me-downs from my older brother and sister. When they were children they were the first little ones to enter our extended family for decades. So I had some of the best hard cover books given to me from their childhood.

The one that stands out in my mind was Pinocchio, it was a large book with and orange cover the kind you find in the library. It had large color pictures that still stand out in my mind. The book was about 100 pages and was one that I read or should I say looked at the pictures most everyday. Since it was so long when it was actually read it was done in chapters.

When the Pinocchio Movie by Disney finally was shown on television I saw it on The Wonderful World of Disney on CBS. Walt Disney himself was the host of the program and he showed how animations were done, the building of Disneyland and finally Disney World. I learned how animation worked and even tried to do it myself. My father taught me how to do simple animation of the edge of a note pad. I was amazed at how it worked.

Every Sunday evening we watched Disney on TV which often included actual movies like The Three Musketeers, Old Yeller and the like. But it was the animation I was interested in and I sat intently focused on anything animated once I discovered it was done by hand. I was truly fascinated and wanted to become an animator although I never did as a teacher I have created power point animations for my students.

Pinocchio a beloved story teaching children the consequences of telling a lie!

The first time I saw this movie I was frightened of the wicked step-mother. I watched it through and it soon became a favorite of mine.

Sleeping Beauty (Two-Disc Platinum Edition)

This is the story that every little girl love. It is filled with drama and fantasy and of course Prince Charming.


When I think of this movie I remember my Aunt Mary she would sing the theme song to me every time I visited. Since my name was Cynthia she always called me her little Cinderella.
