* When Geppetto goes out to look for Pinocchio it's raining heavily, and looks like it has been for a while. When Pinocchio attempts to return home a few hours later, all the streets are dry, with no sign of recent rain.

** Panic. Considering these are young children who just had the world turned upside down by a maniacal villain, they probably had a hard time thinking straight enough to come up with a plan. Alternately, maybe some of them did try it and their new owners didnt care and [[HumansAreBastards either kept them for labour or showed them off for money.]] I can imagine the situation for the talking donkeys would be similar to Stromboli and Pinochio, "Work for me and get some good food, lodgings and become famous. Get too uppity or complain and I'll be having some donkey stew.'' The Coachman probably sells the talking donkeys to people whom he knows won't care about where they came from as long they get rich.

*At the beginning, why does Geppetto go to sleep with his glasses on and a gun under his pillow, then leaves the window ''wide'' open?

** Geopetto brought them along because he didn't want them to starve in case he was gone for a month.

**They are still children. Completely freaked out children, unable to think ahead. They might have thought that, if they could still answer to their names, they could have the donkey transformation reverted, or maybe receive a more compassionate treatment. Of course they are wrong.

*** Cigars and alcohol could still affect his wooden body in negative ways. Heck, [[FridgeBrilliance wouldn't he be MORE at risk than a flesh boy when around open flame and booze?]]

* Why didn't the donkeys who could still talk ''pretend'' they couldn't when the coachmen was checking them vocalization (by simply asking what their names were). Then when they were taken to the circus or farm, they could tell people about Pleasure Island and have people come and stop the coachman.

* Pinocchio says: "God does not exist". Would his nose grow? Does his nose grow when he *knows* what he's saying is a lie, or if he speaks a lie, regardless of his knowledge about it?

*** But... But Pinocchio was made of WOOD. How did a piece of wood catch whatever disease was floating around Pleasure Island? Or is the donkey transformation a form of dark magic, anathema to the Blue Fairy's benevolent transformation magic?
