* NiceCharacterMeanActor: Here's a bit of trivia you might [[IncrediblyLamePun nazi]] coming: Gepetto's voice actor frequently upset cast members with his praising of Hitler and the Nazis. While the Holocaust was going on. The film crew showed him what they thought of him when they got to "rock" him on a boat set for the animators to use as a reference during the Monstro scenes. Disney's later war cartoons featuring Gepetto and Pinocchio supporting the Allies is pretty HilariousInHindsight.

* InkSuitActor: The animators had a hard time coming up with a design for Geppetto (an early version of whom looked far too much like Doc from ''Snow White''), that is until [[http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_fqmwiYyxzFo/TBevKSmh_xI/AAAAAAAAAME/V7MErJpJpVg/s1600/Christian+Rub01.jpg Christian Rub]] was [[http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-3FD7LUV0d2Y/TiV4HYOUGrI/AAAAAAAAkz0/J_VX5tsDTLA/s1600/GeppettoPinocchio.jpg cast for the role.]]

* CrossDressingVoices: In the original dubs for the French and Swedish versions, Pinocchio was voiced by grown women. In the re-dubs he's voices by boys, however, making it like Disney himself preferred of having children voice children.

* NiceCharacterMeanActor: Would you believe that the voice of kindly old Geppetto was a Nazi sympathizer? it's also worth mentioning how scary he looks in [[http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/disney/images/5/5c/Christian-rub.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20120624221118 this photo]].
