Toys often appear in animated children's films, but rarely are they the sole star. When Disney adapted the classic Italian tale of Pinocchio into the studio's second animated film, they had to make some serious changes before it became the classic it is today. The story of Geppetto's marionette wished to be a real boy is one of the most iconic in Disney's history, with many other films on our list owing their existence at least partly to it.
To this day, we can't help but wish there was a small, singing, top-hat-wearing cricket sitting on our shoulder, telling us when we're headed for trouble. But if that comes at the price of a nose that grows with every lie, and the chilling run-ins with 'Pleasure Island,' the film is more than enough of an escape.
