Background Info For Disney Pinocchio:
The Adventures of Pinocchio (1936) was an ill fated film that began on January 1935. That is when politician Alfredo Rocco decided to commission the first Italian produced animated movie at the newly formed studio CAIR. CAIR stood for Cartoni Animati Italiani Roma. The studio chose to adapt the “Adventures of Pinocchio” by Collodi as their first film. Had this film been finished and publicly been released in 1936, it would have been the first animated film based on Carlo Collodi’s book “The Adventures of Pinocchio”. In actuality, Disney’s second animated film, Pinocchio (1940) captured that honor. The Limited Edition of 1936 for this Disney Pinocchio Coin Set may be an homage to this first attempt to make an animated Pinocchio film.
Walt Disney, expressed interest in Pinocchio as early as 1934. He staked his “claim” with the Motion Picture Producers and Distributors of America, and announced the project to the press in 1935. By the end of 1936, he was already able to compete for the rights to the book. Furthermore, in 1937 he started work on his film adaptation. A 1936 article states that the rights were “exclusively” in the hands of C.A.I.R.. Thus Disney had to abandon the project for some time. The contract was finalized only in June 1938.
