Not a YMMV trope.
* MsFanservice: The Blue Fairy. Believe it or not, this was more of an accident - Walt Disney originally wanted the character to be beautiful, but not like a glamor girl. In the end, the animators were said to have based her on model/actress Jean Harlow and Walt approved the final design.

Moving to its own page.
** MeanCharacterNiceActor: Monstro even guest-starred as a good guy in a ''WesternAnimation/{{Bonkers}}'' comic story. According to this comic, he is a well mannered but destructive (due to his size) Toon actor who has not had much work since this film.

* TearJerker: [[spoiler: Pinocchio's apparent death.]] Also included should be the AdultFear moment when Geppetto walks desperately through pouring rain in search of Pinocchio when he doesn't come from school. His increasingly desperate cries of "Pinocchio!" ringing out while his puppet-son is unknowingly being carted away just in front of him is pretty agonizing for anyone who's ever been in charge of the welfare of another. ** Oddly, enough. [[spoiler: you can't even help but feel sorry for Lampwick during the transformation scene. It's not a good view seeing him while he desperately gets down on his knees and begs Pinocchio and asking for Jiminy's help.]] *** And Alexander an innocent little boy like Pinocchio turned into a donkey crying for his mother, the Coachman then roughly throws him into a pen with other talking donkey boys leaving him and the others to an unknown fate where they may never see their families again and may remain donkeys for the rest of their lives. * TheWoobie: 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.

* AdaptationDisplacement: Be honest, how many of you have read the book? A weird case as people ''know'' that this movie is based on a children's novel, they just never read or familiarize with it.

** Also the bit "If you don't go to school, you'll become a donkey". Justified in that barely any Italian kids went to school when the book was written.
