* ''Pinocchio'' is the first Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon film to be released on UsefulNotes/{{DVD}}, as the first release in a short line called the Walt Disney Limited Issues. These discs were VanillaEdition discs that usually only had the Gold Walt Disney Home Video logo, a few menus, and the movie, but ''Pinocchio'' at least threw in the original trailer as an extra. This disc hit stores in 1999, and was later repackaged in the Walt Disney Gold Classic Collection, as the only "Untouchable" in that line.

* ''Pinocchio'' was the first Walt-supervised film and the second film period to be released in Creator/WaltDisneyHomeVideo's The Classics[=/=]WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyClassics line in 1985 (it has the fan name "Black Diamond Classics"), which was a crucial release in developing home media for Disney; this also made it the third single-story Walt film after ''Dumbo'' and ''Alice In Wonderland'' to reach home video. It was reissued a year later as part of a box set/sale for ''Disney/SleepingBeauty's'' Classics premiere and then again as Walt Disney's Masterpiece as the quarterfinal release in the Classics line. ''Pinocchio'' is also the GrandFinale issue for the WaltDisneyHomeVideo/WaltDisneyPlatinumEditions series, which made it the second "Untouchable" after ''Sleeping Beauty'' to reach UsefulNotes/{{Bluray}}. No Diamond Edition version of ''Pinocchio'' was released, though; making it the only Platinum Edition to not have a Diamond Edition counterpart and ensuring that none of the films from the Gold Classic Collection got a subsequent release as part of the Diamond Editions (everything in the Platinum/Diamond Editions were released in the Classics and Masterpiece Collections combined).

Added DiffLines:

* LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition:
** The Deluxe VHS/Laserdisc reissue in 1993 was the second video release after ''Disney/{{Fantasia}}'' to have a 22-minute "Making of a Masterpiece" documentary.
** The 2009 Platinum Edition 3-Disc Blu-Ray/DVD combo pack, the last Platinum Edition Disney ever released, remains one of the most bonus-filled BD sets produced for a Disney Animated Canon movie.


Added DiffLines:

* ShootTheMoney: You know that opening multiplane camera shot on the day Pinocchio goes to school? The one that's barely on screen for a full minute? That entire shot, which used a specially constructed horizontal multiplane camera, cost $50,000 to shoot, as much as the budget of a single Disney short cartoon!
** The panning multiplane crane shot during the "Hi Diddley Dee" number, which barely lasts 33 seconds on screen, cost almost as much money (around $35,000).

* DisownedAdaptation: The son of Carlo Collodi, the author of the original ''Adventures of Pinocchio'' book, hated the Disney adaptation for playing fast and loose with his dads story, and even unsuccessfully tried to sue the studio for misrepresenting his fathers work.

Added DiffLines:

** Pinocchio was originally going to be more like his literary counterpart, where he's more of mischievous, and his design more puppet-like. Walt Disney, halted production after he decided the character was coming off as too unsympathetic. They restarted from scratch, making Pinocchio more naive and misguided, and they gave him a more boyish like appearance.

** As noted under AcclaimedFlop, had UsefulNotes/WorldWarII not broken out, the film would've been released internationally and probably would've been a box office success.
