  4. I was literally terrorized by the donkey-transformation scene when I was a kid. Still I find it a very strong scene.
    The animation inside the cage was a massive scene, all of this created 72 years ago! This commands respect!

    Thank you for sharing!

  5. Excellent interview. And I just watched Pinocchio again last week. I think the transformation scene is the single most chilling footage ever animated.

  7. Animating all the forces and weight in Pinocchio's body when he's tumbling in the moving cage, and doing the acting at the same time! That's a real bit of challenge, and good opportunity to show the wonderful skill of Frank Thomas!
