The Artistry of Pinocchio

The animation of Milt Kahl, Freddy Moore, Ward Kimball and the music of Paul Smith really shine through in this scene from Pinocchio. To heighten the drama the dialog has been removed and just the animation and soundtrack are left to tell the story.

Here Pinocchio witnesses the transformation of Lampwick as he pays for his childhood indulgences. This is possibly the most horrifying scene in any Disney animated feature. Watching it this way makes it even more frightening.

  2. This is an excellent example from one of Disney’s finest films. Seeing a scene like this as a child – I first saw it as an adult – would probably have scared me away from drinking and smoking for life.
