* ''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 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, maybe because of "I've Got No Strings" becoming the theme song of Nightmare Fuel Ultron, who was in 2015's ''Film/AvengersAgeOfUltron'', months before the ''Diamond Edition'' series would run out of "Untouchables".

* ''Pinocchio'' is the first "Untouchable" and 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 only had the Gold Walt Disney Home Video logo, a few menus, and the movie, but ''Pinocchio'' was repackaged in the ''Walt Disney Gold Classic Collection'' series a few months later as the only "Untouchable" in that line.

* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Jiminy Cricket is also known as [[Disney/{{Dumbo}} Jim Crow]].
** Creator/MelBlanc [[WhatCouldHaveBeen was going to voice Gideon]] but Walt decided that he should remain a silent character akin to [[Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs Dopey]] so all of his lines were cut out and only 3 hiccups that were recorded by Blanc remained in the final cut, though he was still paid for his work. [[WordOfGod According to]] Creator/MelBlanc, the voice he used for Gideon was a very inebriated voice, and very similar to the drunk stork used in some later WB shorts, such as "Apes of Wrath".
** Lampwick would later be known as [[Film/ForbiddenPlanet Robby The Robot]].
** Monstro the Whale was voiced by [[Creator/ThurlRavenscroft Tony The Tiger!]]

* All of the original ''Classics Pinnochio'' VHS tapes from 1985 have the 1984 white-and-red F.B.I. warning screens, then the 1984 "Cheesy Diamond" ''The Classics: Walt Disney Home Video'' logo, then the film's opening credits and the film afterwards (it skips the Buena Vista/RKO logo). The very early pressings of this tape also have a theatrical trailer for ''Disney/TheBlackCauldron'' inbetween the warnings and the ''Classics'' logo, with footage that new studio chief Jeffrey Katzenberg had edited out of the final version of that movie. ''The Black Cauldron'' would hit theaters just over a week after ''Pinocchio'' hit store shelves, and it went on to be a giant CreatorKiller BoxOfficeBomb; the trailer for that movie was quickly removed from the later ''Pinocchio'' tapes, which now were identical to almost all of the "Cheesy Diamond" tapes in opening. The reissue the next year had dark-red F.B.I. warnings identical to the 1991 green warnings, a video dealer message, the "Cheesy Diamond" logo, which now freezes for 10 seconds, and then the film (this opening is the same as ''Sleeping Beauty's Classics'' opening except for the freezing logo).
