YMMV / Mokku of the Oak Tree

Go To

  • Angst? What Angst?: In the fifth episode, Mokku gets over his friend killing an innocent kitten in a fit of rage really quickly.
  • Heartwarming Moments: The ending of the series, where Pinocchio (Mock) becomes a real boy.
  • Jerkass Woobie: For all his jerkiness, Pinocchio (Mock) could cause some sympathy to the viewers when he suffers from misfortune, particularly when he gets shot in the last episode.
  • Nightmare Fuel: Many, many scenes.
  • Episode 6 has the witch (who is a vampire) go to a stable where a horse is being imprisoned. She transforms into a bat and starts flying around it. The horse tries to break free but to no avail. The scene then cuts to the morning. The witch walks out of the stable, wipes her lips while cackling and a shot of the horse lying dead is shown. The dub cut that out, only having the witch telling the horse to behave or he'll become her victim.
  • The way the witch is killed in the next episode. Pinocchio sets his hand on fire and burns her alive. This was also removed in the dub and changed so that the witch is simply scared off by the fire.
  • Episode 11 begins with one of Pinocchio's colleagues drowning. This was a case when the dub averted censoring death.
  • Episode 42 had a really disturbing Nightmare Sequence. It pictured Pinocchio on a crucifix, much like Jesus was (Pinocchio even has a crown of thorns on his head). The crucifix is burned and at the end, Pinocchio's disembodied head falls on the ground.
  • What Do You Mean, It's for Kids?: This is probably the darkest take on Collodi's novel. Even in the dub, which cut out most terrifying and violent scenes, the disturbing atmosphere is still there.
