Overview

Mokku of the Oak Tree, also known as Mokku Woody the Oak Tree (樫の木モック, Kashi no Ki Mokku), or Saban's Adventures of Pinocchio in the United States, is a 52 episode anime series by Tatsunoko Productions first aired on Fuji Television in 1972. The story is based on the novel The Adventures of Pinocchio by Italian author Carlo Collodi.

Unlike the more cheerful lighter tones of the Disney Version and Nippon Animation's version Piccolino no Bōken, this series has a distinctly sadistic darker theme and portrays the main character, Pinocchio (Mokku), as suffering from constant physical and psychological abuse and freak accidents.

Plot

Finding driftwood that has been struck by lightning, toy-maker Gepetto constructs a puppet that comes alive but wants to be a real boy. Based on the 1881 children's story by Carlo Collodi, it was also animated as Piccolino. Yoshitaka Amano's first work in character design. Shown on HBO in the U.S.
