Pinocchio is a sidescrolling action game for the Sega Mega Drive based on the Disney film with the same name.
Similar to previous Disney properties handled by Virgin Interactive (Aladdin, The Jungle Book and The Lion King), animation in Pinocchio was produced by official Disney animators in DisneyWorld, Florida. Virgin would draw the basic concepts of the game in London, which would be sent to Florida for review (often being radically changed in the process) and then sent back, to which Virgin would attempt to recreate the concepts in video game form. The character of Pinocchio has roughly 2,000 frames of animation in total.
24 Virgin staff members worked on Pinocchio, using an engine built from the ground up. A Sega 32X version was planned for a simultaneous release (though the Mega Drive version had at least an eight month head start on development), but was cancelled for unknown reasons. Disney prevented Virgin from producing a Sega Saturn conversion due to aspirations of entering the video game market on their own.
