    Generally speaking, once a film is rated once by the MPAA that’s the rating it keeps forever regardless of the continued wussification of society. They’d generally only re-submit a movie if they’d done re-editing to it AND were planning on releasing that edit theatrically. This typically doesn’t make much sense from a money perspective, especially when you can slap UNRATED EDITION on the box and still have it be carried in stores no problem.

    This is why Gremlins as well as Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom still retain their original PG rating. Presumably, fans wouldn’t stand for any changes made to Pinocchio or the other real Disney movies, so the Blu-Ray editions would be unaltered.

    Personally, and it might just be because I’m now an out-of-touch grown up at this point (which is horrifying), I think the majority of modern children’s entertainment is way, way more likely to screw kids up than the old stuff. If I had kids, I’d much rather have them grow up watching Looney Tunes, Jim Henson productions like The Storyteller, and all the other stuff I watched as a kid that’s now pretty much banned than Yo Gabba Gabba or whatever lame-o weak sauce they got on nowadays. But that’s another topic!

    Totally agree with Daryl. Entertainment in general seems headed in totally the wrong direction — following trite formulas and confusing ‘vulgarity’ with ‘comedy’. And a lot of modern kid’s shows don’t have the irony or complexity of the old ones.

    C’mon you damn pussies, it’s only a movie.
    In my opinion, this is better than most we have today. Also, this was made in the 1940’s, so you can’t expect too much child freindly stuff. Also, this brang up “Wish Upon a Star”.

    I agree with Ellis,
    It’s sick people like you guys who search for bad things in movies.
    And pinocchio is a movie of ages back! The things back then were way different from now! I bet that if you ask your dad whether he has ever been spanked that he can’t deny it at all! lol

    This was obviously meant as a joke. I got a million laughs out of it and have passed it on. Things mentioned inthe list were totally unheard of back in 1940. Ellis & Rinaldo hve it right.
    For any who like fun poked at movie titles, go to my website on flickr and look for the set on HUMOR. I have lampooned something like 300+ movies with poster-like takeoffs (names of the movies disguised to protect me! lol

    It’s too bad people CAN’T SEE what PInochio was all about. It’s REALLY a movie for adults to show them how they have ruined America by turning from Christ. Can’t see that? We have ALL become Jackasses seeking after “Pleasure Island”. Disney was a devout Christian. Google this and do your researh: was walt disney a christian And support Amend28: National Referendum & Recall and cleanup America. See out websites
