"Pinocchio" became the first animated feature to win an Academy Award; it won for both Best Music - Original Score and for Best Music - Original Song for When You Wish Upon A Star. " Most critics and audiences agree that "Pinocchio is among the finest Disney features ever made, and one of the greatest animated films of all time. In 1994, it was added to the United States National Film Registry as being culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant. Due to the huge success of "Snow White, " Walt Disney wanted more famous voice actors for Pinocchio.Disney also wanted the character of Pinocchio to be voiced by a real child. The role ended up going to twelve year old actor Dickie Jones, who had previously been in Frank Capra's enormous Hollywood hit, Mr. Animation began in September 1938 and just as in "Snow White, " live-action footage was shot for "Pinocchio" with the actors playing the scenes; which was supervised by Hamilton Luske. The animators then used the footage as a guide for their animation drawings by studying the human movement and then incorporating many of those poses and scenes.
The title character was animated by Milt Kahl (initial design), Frank Thomas, and Ollie Johnston. "When I was doing Pinocchio, " Johnston said, I thought of the character being real, a living person, not a drawing.
"Give a Little Whistle, " one of the memorable songs featured in "Pinocchio, " was composed by Leigh Harline with lyrics by Ned Washington. The song is sung by Jiminy Cricket (voiced by Cliff Edwards), and the performance and animation is one of the nicest sequences in the film.In the song, Jiminy tries to explain the matters of being a conscience to Pinocchio, and tells him if he needs him all he has to do is give a little whistle. " This is a wonderful drawing from the "Give a Little Whistle sequence and the image of Pinocchio is perfect; he is eyes and mouth open and looking into his hat. The drawing is rendered in red, green, and graphite pencils on peg hole animation paper, and this would be a great addition to any animation art collection!
