There have been various movies retelling the story of Pinocchio, but the one that springs to mind is the 1940 Disney classic, aptly named "Pinocchio," which went on to win two Oscars.

The story follows a wooden boy named Pinocchio, created by the Blue Fairy after his father, Geppetto, prayed for a son. Geppetto's son, however, is not content with being a puppet and wants to become a real boy. To do this, the Blue Fairy says, Pinocchio must ensure he lives a life of virtue.

The fairy went on to assign the cricket, Jiminy Cricket, with the responsibility of being Pinocchio's conscience; this task became significantly challenging when Pinocchio naively chose to follow a man named Honest John to The Island Of Pleasure.
