** Pool tables can commonly be found in bars which wouldn't be an appropriate place for a young boy. I believe there used to be a belief that billiards was a game for delinquents.

* If Pinocchio doesn't know right from wrong, how does he know right is... well... right? When Jiminy instructs Pinocchio, he says: "But I'm gonna do right!" How does he know right is the good choice, and wrong a bad choice?

* So, Pleasure Island allows everything bad. Smoking, check. Drinking, check. Causing havoc, check. Playing pool, che- wait a second! What's so wrong with playing pool? Isn't it just a regular game?

** Probably just an IntellectualAnimal like the fish. Whether he uses AnimalTalk depends on the viewer, since some animals (like [[WesternAnimation/TomAndJerry Tom]]) vary between TheSpeechless and a TalkingAnimal DependingOnTheAuthor. On one hand, he doesn't show any signs of becoming anything else when MinnieMouse owns him, so he could be full-grown but of a small breed. On the other hand, ComicBookTime. Anyway, if he was the kitten form of a FunnyAnimal like Foulfellow or Gideon, that would have the UnfortunateImplications of {{Funny Animal}}s being considered saves or pets, since Gepetto treats him like a pet instead of a child and doesn't consider him to be a candidate for sonhood.

** Lying and being mistaken are not the same thing. His nose would probably grow if he gave a definitive answer to any question he didn't know the answer to, because he would be lying about his level of knowledge, but it wouldn't grow based on whether the answer was correct.

* What if Pinocchio did become an actor and said lines from a script portraying a lying character?

** RuleOfFunny . That's literally the only reason for that tiny part of the movie to exist, to make a joke out of the whole breathing underwater thing and to [[Lampshade]] it as well. "Yes, we are aware it doesn't make sense for Jiminy to be breathing underwater. Deal with it."

---> 2. Who says she didn't eventually? Just because we never see it doesn't mean it didn't happen. It just isn't relavent to Pinocchio's story (like showing whether or not Gideon, Honest John, or the Coachman ever are punished)

* How exactly did Cleo's bowl ''stay intact'' during the climax! It's ''glass!" and yet it doesn't break after all that ramming from that killer Sperm Whale Monstro? HOW did cleo's bowl manage to stay intact? JUST HOW?!!

** Also, how did Geppetto manage to carry Cleo's bowl and Pinocchio's body on his way home?

* When Geppetto was trying to find water for Pinocchio's finger, Jiminy tries to give him some water from his hat. Ummm, where did he even get the water?

* 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?
