* {{Padding}}: The movie uses every single opportunity to delay our characters getting out of Gepetto's worshop and any action on their part will be prolonged to a ridiculous degree, such as Figaro shutting the window, Gepetto looking around the room with a gun in his hand or Pinocchio's finger catching on a candle's fire.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeArt: '''''The Animation!''''' There's a reason this is considered one of Walt Disney's better works. Monstro's animation is considered one of, if not the, greatest pieces of animation ever created.
** The backgrounds are all masterful works of illustration and layout in it of themselves. Every single one of them is overflowing with detail and texture, from the opening shot of the town square to the knick-knacks on Geppetto's bedside table.
* SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic: The whole soundtrack can count, but special mention goes to "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r2Us3PfJfkY When You Wish Upon a Star]]". That one song was so good, it became Disney's de facto theme song. The song and score both won Oscars.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: A prolonged sequence of Jiminy getting annoyed at all the noise going on in Gepetto's worshop preventing him from falling asleep is {{Padding}} at its purest. Shortly afterwards, he and Pinocchio have a musical number in which the former teaches the latter how to whistle. To be honest, Pinocchio ''does'' make use of this particular skill once later on but it serves him no good, making it absolutely pointless as a result.

* CompleteMonster: [[VileVillainSaccharineShow The Coachman]] runs Pleasure Island, a too-good-to-be-true amusement park for troublesome children. Presenting a guise as a [[FauxAffablyEvil kindly old man]], [[WouldHurtAChild he]] laces the cigars and beer of the children with a substance that [[BalefulPolymorph transforms the children into donkeys]] whenever they act like jerks. The Coachman then sells them as normal animals into harsh working environments (such as salt mines or circuses) and keeps the boys who can still talk within a pen with no indication of their fates afterwards. Even [[ThoseTwoBadGuys Honest John and Gideon]], a pair of con artists, are [[EvenEvilHasStandards visibly terrified by him and his actions]].
* CrossoverShip: Jiminy and [[Disney/PeterPan Tinker Bell.]] [[{{Rule34}} It's not as cute as it sounds.]]

* HilariousInHindsight:
** When the first scene of the film fades in after the opening credits, if you look to the left of where Jiminy is sitting and singing, two other tales can be seen in the background: ''Disney/AliceInWonderland'' and ''Disney/PeterPan,'' both of which Disney would later adapt into animated films as well.
** Jiminy was originally designed to look more like a real cricket, with toothed legs and waving antenna, but Walt [[WhatMeasureIsANonCute didn't think that looked appealing enough.]] [[Disney/{{Mulan}} 58 years later]], Disney managed to create a cricket with that design and make him look cute.

** It doesn't help, that Lampwick's original name in the novel was said to be 'Romeo'.

* MemeticMolester: The Coachman. Many viewers took note of his "They never come back...[[SlasherSmile AS BOYS!]]" and how he wants to take "stupid little boys" to a place called ''Pleasure'' Island.

* EarWorm: The soundtrack has remained in public conscience for over 70 years now, and not ''just'' the film's BootstrappedTheme.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: There's a fair UsefulNotes/{{f|urryFandom}}ollowing around the two animal villains in the Japanese fandom. Foulfellow being as [[CunningLikeAFox cunning]] and as handsome as he is might've helped. As well as being voiced by ''YasuoYamada''! Gideon is often paired with him [[HoYayShipping to some degree]].

* AdaptationDisplacement: Be honest, how many of you have actually read the book? A weird case in that most people do realize that this movie is based on a children's novel, they've just never bothered actually reading it or anything.
** In its native Italy, the book is still pretty well-known and read.

* BadassGrandpa: Geppetto, although not in the conventional sense of badassery. Specifically, during the scene in which Monstro is eating, Geppetto grabs a pole and starts fishing. He's pulling in several tuna one after the other with little effort, usually after he casts. From the looks of them, let's say they're Skipjack Tuna - They can grow up to about three feet and weigh as much as 76 pounds, and Geppetto is just pulling them in like they're nothing. Simply badass.
