** Pinocchio is nicer, and quite close to his [[Disney/{{Pinocchio}} Disney counterpart]], who was more heroic than the book counterpart.



* AdaptationalMundanity: Mangiafuoco's puppets are non-sentient to simplify the plot.



* AmusementParkOfDoom: Dunceland (The Land of Toys).

to:

* LostInImitation: Pinocchio, Geppetto, the Blue Fairy and the Cricket are more similar to their Disney version counterparts than the book ones. Averted with Mangiafuoco, who is actually [[AdaptationalHeroism more benevolent than the book one]] and his strong sneezes are kept in this version.
* ObviouslyEvil: There is no secret that the Coachman is evil. That doesn't happen in the book or the Disney version, where he seems kindly, but he's far from it.

Added DiffLines:

* CluelessAesop: The film tries to teach that you should not lie, but since lying is not an important theme in the plot of neither the book nor this film, it fails to be persuasive.


* AbledInTheAdaptation: The Wolf and the Cat do not become handicapped like in the book; they just get arrested.

Added DiffLines:

* ReCut: When the film was released, there was also a recut version that trims down a majority of the film (scenes like Mangiafuoco and pigeon were omitted) and has an narrator in it. This tape includes a Mel-O-Toons of Sinbad, and a ComiColor Cartoons of Simple Simon.


** Also happened with the Wolf and the Cat. In the midnight, they disguise as trees rather than as assasins and don't scare Pinocchio to give up the coins. Both things indicate that they wouldn't have hurt Pinocchio unlike their literary counterparts.

* AdaptationalNiceGuy:
** Pinocchio lacks the mean demeanor of his literary counterpart.
** The Cricket is more friendly than the stern, serious Cricket of the book.



* AdaptedOut: Mastro Cherry, the Carabiniers, Mangiafuoco's puppets, many of the talking animals and the Green Fisherman. Well, this is a compressed adaptation. Among the talking animals that were eliminated from the book, there is a tuna who helped Pinocchio get Geppetto to land, and his elimination forces Pinocchio to find a way to do so himself (He succeeds).
