Review of Pinocchio (1940)

Moving picture, 88 minutes

Disney animator Art Babbitt claimed that Walt himself attended meetings of the German-American Bund. Have a look at Matt Roth’s 1996 essay, “The Lion King: A short history of Disney-fascism”. In it, he makes a pretty good case for why Pinocchio could have “served as a Hitler Youth training film”.
