The stories followed the tales of Pinocchio, a wooden puppet boy carved as a companion by Geppetto, a lonely toy maker and later given life by the Blue Fairy. The series was filmed in "Animagic," a process that made marionettes seem alive.

Theme Song Lyrics 
"The New Adventures of Pinocchio"

Singers: Here's Pinocchio
What a happy lass since the day
He lost his strings
He can walk and talk and fly
Pinocchio: Do anything I try
Singers: He can dance, sing a tune, play a flute
Pinocchio: Do anything I try
Singers: But never never never never
Never never never never ever
Ever should he tell a lie.

TRIVIA NOTE:  The Pinocchio tale was created by Italian author Carlo Lorenzini, (aka "Carlo Collodi" 1826-1890) who wrote the famous children's story "The Adventures of Pinocchio" (1883).

Other filmed adaptations include the classic Walt Disney feature length cartoon Pinocchio (1940); a USA/French production of Pinocchio in Outer Space (1964); and a Filmation Studios production of Pinocchio and the Emperor of the Night (1987).
