** 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?

** 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?]]
