Pinocchio is brought to life when an old carpenter, called Gepetto, wishes upon a shooting star. Little does Gepetto know however, that stromboli, the evil circus ringmaster, now has his sights set on Pinocchio. Stromboli wants Pinocchio to be the star attraction in his failing circus and sets a plan in motion to kidnap him. Pinocchio must escape the clutches of the circus and, if he ever wants to be a real boy, he must be on his best behaviour. Lucky for Pinocchio, he is helped by good old Jiminy Cricket and the wonderful (if a bit clumsy) Fairy Nuff.
