''The Adventures of Pinocchio'' (''Le Avventure di Pinocchio,'' AKA ''Storia di un Burattino'' ("The Story of a Marionette") is UsefulNotes/{{Italy}}'s most famous FairyTale, first published in 1883. Its author, ''Carlo Collodi,'' wrote a great deal for children, but ''Pinocchio'' is the only one of Collodi's tales to have been translated into the English language.

Curiously, there is a goof in the Land of Toys first chapter, because it is mentioned that Pinocchio will convert into a donkey but this the donkey transformation happens in the next chapter.

* AdaptationalHeroism: Some versions make Pinocchio's bad behaviour driven by naivete rather than maliciousness.
* AdaptationalVillainy: Fire Eater AKA Mangiafuoco AKA Stromboli AKA Lorenzini, depending on the translation / adaptation, is more of a Type V AntiHero than a villain in the book; although he is willing to kill any of the puppets and chop them up for firewood, he is easily moved to tears and shows Pinocchio kindness when he regrets his cruelty. He is almost always portrayed as far more evil in film, and has even become an iconic Creator/{{Disney}} villain.



* AscendedExtra: The Cricket in almost all adaptations, maybe because the [[Disney/{{Pinocchio}} the Disney version]] was the first one in doing so. One major exception is the ''Luigi Comencini's version,'' where the Cricket [[DeathByAdaptation dies and remains dead.]]



* BornOfMagic: Pinocchio is brought to life by being a puppet made of magical wood, or by a [[MakeAWish wish upon a star]], or other magical methods in nearly all incarnations.

* CrapsackWorld: The author makes it a point that every time something bad happens to Pinocchio, he had it coming. But usually it's LaserGuidedKarma, which does much more to punish Pinocchio when he does something bad, than reward him when he does something good. It's only because of PlotArmor that he survives to the end of the book; consider what happens to the other puppets and children...

* DisneyDeath: [[spoiler: Pinocchio in Chapter 15. Thanks to reader demands, the Cricket, Owl and Crow tend to his injuries.]]
* DisproportionateRetribution: Although Pinocchio is being a jerk a lot of the time when things go wrong for him, there is at least one instance where his comeuppance seems far from reasonable: [[spoiler: after promising to go to school and work, Pinocchio is informed that the monster that swallowed his father is in the local harbor. The other boys egg him on, telling him to bunk school and come and see it. He refuses, saying he will go after school. When they tell him that the beast will be gone by then, he agrees to miss one day of school to see the creature that *swallowed his father*. The boys turned out to have tricked him, and of course Pinocchio gets into a fight, is arrested for a murder than he didn't commit, and lands up in another series of horrible misadventures.]] Perhaps if things hadn't gone so badly he would have continued bunking school, though.

* {{Foreshadowing}}: There are several hints that the Fox and the Cat are [[BitchInSheepsClothing not the kindhearted crippled philanthropists they seem to be]] before they steal Pinocchio's money. Like when they tell Pinocchio that education and studying is how they became crippled. And when they arrive at the inn on their way to the field of miracles (a non existent field the two made up where money grows on trees) to eat and rest (the real reason being as a place they could lose Pinocchio, in order to attack him in disguise later), the narrator states that they were very sick and could only eat 35 mullets and 25 chickens for dinner, and leave Pinocchio to pay for it all (under the excuse that [[BlatantLies they were so polite, they did not want to him offend him by not giving him the honor of paying the bill.]]) And if that weren't enough for Pinocchio to see through, when they attack him in disguise later for his money, Pinocchio [[WhatDoYouMeanItsForKids cuts off the cat's paw.]] The next day, when Pinocchio sees the cat has lost his paw too, he [[TooDumbToLive does not put two and two together.]] So sadly, not realizing any of these useful warnings, he is tricked into burying his money in the field of miracles, and while he goes to wait in the city, the two dig up his money and Pinocchio is robbed.

** {{Averted|Trope}} with The Fox and the Cat. As Pinocchio, The Fox and the Cat are all punished at different stages of the book for their varying levels of wickedness, and the good characters (e.g. Geppetto, The Fairy, The Talking Cricket, and sometimes Pinocchio as well) tend to be miraculously rewarded in the most unlikely ways, it may be a safe assumption that the villains of the book (none of which get any comeuppance except for the Fox and the Cat) are headed for trouble as well.

* PlotHole: At the start, Pinocchio doesn't know how to read, but he can read perfectly the note of the Fairy's grave. How did he learn to read? The ''Luigi Comencini'' version fixes this by making a peasant reading it to Pinocchio.
