** Lampwick. Yes, he's a bit of a brat, and hardly a good role model, but he's still a kid! And he cares for Pinocchio, and judging by his heartbreaking screams, his mother too.

** Geppetto. Seriously, he first desperately looks for his kid, then he get swallowed along Figaro and Cleo in the belly of a whale where he risks to die starving. Then [[spoiler: Pinocchio [[AdultFear dies saving his life]] leading Gepetto to mourn his son's loss until the Blue Fairy revives him as a real boy.]]

** When Jiminy goes to tell Gepetto about Pinocchio running off to join the theatre, he stops himself with the comment that that would be "snitching", giving the apparent message that warning parents about their children going with strangers or running away to somewhere they are not supposed to go is a bad thing.

** Even from Pinocchio's perspective rather than Gepetto's, it comes across less as a conventional morality play about virtuous living than as an UnbuiltTrope version of TooSmartForStrangers, since his only real fault is being too gullible and falling for the tricks of those who want to exploit him.

** One of Gepetto's clocks features a child being spanked for breaking a bottle.

** Bad behaving children deserve to be permanently changed into donkeys and separated from their loved ones for the rest of their lives. Brats got what they deserved.

* AlternativeCharacterInterpretation: The Coachman is a rather ambiguous character. While he could just be an unscrupulous man who [[ExploitedTrope seeks to profit from bizarre phenomena that could only occur in the world of a morality play]], He's also been interpreted as a supernatural KarmicTrickster, a red wearing EvilCounterpart to the Blue Fairy -- while she has children learn from their misdeeds and sends them towards redemption, he punishes them for their stupidity by transforming them into donkeys. A less common variant of this theory interprets him not merely as a malevolent fairy, but as being [[DevilInDisguise literally Satan]]. The fact that his NightmareFace involves contortions that a normal human face simply can't do is often taken to be evidence of this, although it could just as well be ordinary cartoon exaggeration that was turned UpToEleven for the sake of RuleOfScary, without really implying anything about the nature of the character.
