FATHER: All right now, Snooks, you've heard the commercial. You've
been having a busy Christmas week and it's time you went
FATHER: Well, I should think you'd want to go to bed and rest
up for tomorrow. Then you can play with your now toys
again all day.
SNOOKS: Are you goin' to bed and rest up?
FATHER: No, why?
SNOOKS: Well, you played with 'em more than I did.
FATHER: Don't be so selfish. Will you go to bed if I sing you
SNOOKS: A lullaby?
SNOOKS: I'd rather stay here.
FATHER: Well, you can't sit by the radio all night.
SNOOKS: But they're going to tell my favorite story, Pistachio.
FATHER: Pistachio? You mean Pinocchio. Pistachio is a nut.
SNOOKS: No, he ain't, Daddy. He's a little boy.
FATHER: The boy's name's Pinocchio. I know the story very well.
SNOOKS: So do I. His father carved him out of wood.
FATHER: Exactly. Do you know his father's name?
SNOOKS: Uh, huh.
FATHER: What is it?
SNOOKS: Edgar Bergen.
FATHER: Just as I thought. You're bluffing. When I was your age
I knew the story of Pinocchio backwards.
SNOOKS: Did you?
FATHER: Yes. Now will you go to sleep if I tell it to you?
FATHER: No, forwards!
SNOOKS: All right, Daddy. Tell me the story.
FATHER: Once upon a time, long long ago, there was a kind old man
named Geppetto. He was a toymaker and he lived all alone --
no one to talk to but his cat and his goldfish.
SNOOKS: Did the cat really talk?
FATHER: Certainly. It said "meeoow".
SNOOKS: What did the goldfish say?
FATHER: It -- er -- uh - don't be silly. Goldfish don't talk.
They open their mouths and they never say anything.
SNOOKS: You mean like you do when Mummy's around?
FATHER: When Mummy's around I'm not a goldfish.
SNOOKS: What are you?
DADDY: I'm a dead pigeon!
SNOOKS: Poor Daddy. Tell me more about Pistachio.
ORCH: MUSIC SNEAKS IN NARRATION THEME SOFTLY
FATHER: Pinocchio...Well, one cold winter night, just after
Christmas, when most people were enjoying good cheer
and fellowship with their families, old Geppetto was in
his cottage all alone...And he was feeling a bit sad,
because he didn't have any family at all. Just his cat
and his goldfish -- and a little wooden puppet he had
just finished carving...and he turned to Figaro -- that
was the name of his cat, you see -- and he said --
GEPPETTO: Figaro, he is the nicest puppet I have ever seen.
I think I will call him Pinocchio. (CAT MEOWS) Oh, you
like that name, eh? (CAT MEOWS) He's such a cute
little fellow. He almost looks alive. (WISTFUL) Figaro,
wouldn't it be nice if he were real? (CAT MEOWS LOUDER)
What is it, Figaro? What do you want? (CAT MEOWS) Oh,
the window is open. You want me to close it, eh? Very
well, I'll -- (STOPS SHORT) Figaro - look. Up there!
The Wishing Star! (MUSIC SNEAKS IN VERY SOFTLY) Star
light, star bright O First star I see tonight - I wish
I may, I wish I might -- Have the wish I make tonight...
(CAT MEOWS) Figaro, you know what I wished? I wished
that my little Pinocchio might be a real boy.
MUSIC: (UP FULL...AND OUT)
DADDY: Well, Snooks, how do you like the story so far?
SNOOKS: I like it. What happened next?
DADDY: Old Geppetto went to sleep.
DADDY: That's the story. He just went to sleep. That's all.
SNOOKS: That's all?
SNOOKS: That's a very short story.
DADDY: Don't be silly. Geppetto went to sleep and late that
night, a beautiful blue light shone in through the
window. And it blazed and it glowed, and in the middle
of it stood -- the Blue Fairy. (MUSIC HITS FAINTSHIMMERING CHORD) And she touched Pinocchio with her
golden wand and said - (MUSIC: CUTS)
FAIRY: Little puppet made of pine - awake, the gift of life is
thine. (LIGHT RATTLE OF WOOD)
PINOCCHIO: Golly - I can move...And I can talk.
FAIRY: Yes, Pinocchio, I have given you life.
FAIRY: Because the good Geppetto brought so much happiness
to others with his toys - and tonight he wished for a
PINOCCHIO: Am I a real boy?
FAIRY: Not yet, Pinocchio...To make Geppetto's wish come true
will be entirely up to you...
PINOCCHIO: Up to me...
FAIRY: Yes...Prove yourself brave, truthful and unselfish --
and someday you will be a real boy.
PINOCCHIO: (DELIGHTED) Oh! A real boy!
FAIRY: It will not be easy. You must learn to choose between
right and wrong.
PINOCCHIO: Right and wrong? How will I know?
FAIRY: Your conscience will tell you.
PINOCCHIO: Conscience? Where will I find one?
JIMINY: Hello! What about me?
PINOCCHIO: (STARTLED) What's that?
FAIRY: Why it's a cricket!
JIMINY: Jiminy Cricket's the name, yes siree - and I'm little
as anyone's conscience can be.
FAIRY: I think you would be just the one...Kneel, Sir Jiminy
Cricket. I dub thee Pinocchio's conscience.
JIMINY: Oh, gosh....
FAIRY: Now, Pinocchio, remember. Be a good boy - and always
let your conscience be your guide. (MUSIC HITS FAINTSHIMMERING CHORD)
PINOCCHIO: Look - she's gone.
JIMINY: That's right, Pinoke. And listen to me -- you and I
better have a little friendly talk.
JIMINY: Well, you want to be a real boy, don't you?
JIMINY: That's fine. But the world is cram full of lovely
JIMINY: Yep - temptations. They're the wrong things that seem
right at the time, but - uh - even though the right
things may seem wrong some times - uh - sometimes the
wrong things - uh - may be right - at the wrong time -
uh - or vise versa...you follow me?
PINOCCHIO: (PAUSE) Uh-uh...But I'm going to do right.
JIMINY: Atta boy, Pinoke. And I'm gonna help you...and any time
you need me, just whistle. Like this -- (WHISTLES TWOOR THREE NOTES)
PINOCCHIO: Like this? (TRIES TO WHISTLE, BUT CAN'T)
JIMINY: No, son. Like -- (AS MUSIC HITS CHORD) Well, listen.
MUSIC: "GIVE A LITTLE WHISTLE"......................JIMINY
SNOOKS: Didn't all that noise wake up Pinocchio's father?
DADDY: Yes of course.
SNOOKS: Did the noise wake up Pinocchio?
DADDY: He wasn't asleep.
SNOOKS: Don't little wooden dummies sleep?
DADDY: Yes. They sleep like logs. Ha-ha. How's that?
SNOOKS: Ha-ha--terrible! What happened next?
DADDY: Well, Geppetto was delighted to find that his little
wooden boy could walk and talk.
SNOOKS: He liked him, huh?
DADDY: Yes, and the next morning he sent him off to school.
SNOOKS: I thought you said he liked him!
DADDY: He did. But he wanted Pinocchio to be like other little
children. So that morning Pinocchio got up and ran as
fast as he could to the school house.
SNOOKS: Imagine that?
DADDY: Now, why aren't you so anxious to go to school as
SNOOKS: 'Cause I'm no dummy!
DADDY: Hmmm! Well, anyhow, on the way to school Pinocchio ran
into a sly old wolf.
SNOOKS: A wolf?
DADDY: Yes, and do you know what his name was?
SNOOKS: Uncle Louie!
DADDY: No, this wolf was named Honest John, and he was standing
on the street, reading a big advertising billboard that

Stromboli and his Puppet Show"! .. Well, well - so
Stromboli is in town! (CHUCKLES) The old rascal - I
certainly fooled, him once, all right! (LAUGHING) That
time I tied strings on a cat - and Stromboli bought her
for a puppet! (HE ROARS WITH LAUGHTER DURING WHICH
PINOCCHIO FADES IN SINGING "GIVE A LITTLE WHISTLE")
(STILL LAUGHING) Good morning, my little friend.
PINOCCHIO: (BRIGHTLY) Good morning.
HONEST J: And where are you going this fine sunny day?
PINOCCHIO: I'm going to school - just like a real boy!
(FADES, SINGING "GIVE A LITTLE WHISTLE")
HONEST J: (THROUGH PINOCCHIO'S FADE..CHUCKLES) Well that's fine.
Just imagine - a little wooden boy. Now who'd ever
believe that -- (BIG TAKE) A wooden boy! ..A puppet
without strings!...Why, Stromboli would give a fortune
for him! He'd -- (SHOUTS) Hey there - wait! (FADING)
Wait for me, little boy!
MUSIC: (ACCENT CHORD..AND FADE OUT INTO)
HONEST J: (OVER-FRIENDLY) So you're going to school, my little man.
Going to be a scholar, eh?
PINOCCHIO: Yes, I'm going to learn to be brave, truthful and
unselfish - so I can be a real boy some day.
HONEST J: Indeed, indeed !
PINOCCHIO: I must be going now. I'm late.
HONEST J: Just a minute, young fellow, just a minute. Haven't
you heard of the easy road to success?
PINOCCHIO: The easy road?
HONEST J: I'm speaking, my boy - of the theatre!
PINOCCHIO: The theatre?
HONEST J: Bright lights - music - applause - your name up in
lights. Uh - what is your name?
HONEST J: Why, I can see it in letters six feet high!

FATHER: Well, Snooks, how do you like that way I'm telling this
SNOOKS: I'd rather listen to the Screen Guild Show.
FATHER: Oh you would. What have they got that I haven't got?
FATHER: Well, I've got some Camels. I've got a package
right on my desk.
SNOOKS: Not any more you haven't!
FATHER: (AGHAST) Snooks! You -- you - didn't --- ?
SNOOKS: Uh-huh .... (PAUSE) I fed 'em to the goldfish this
afternoon .... And you know what? They liked 'em!!
FATHER: Snooks --if I hadn't made a New Year's Resolution --
[If I hadn't sworn to use my hairbrush only for my hair!]
SMITH: And while Daddy counts ten, we'll have time to talk
about Camel mildness. . . . .How mild can a cigarette be?
BARCLAY: Smoke Camels and see just how mild a cigarette can be!
SMITH: Here's what noted throat specialists reported in a
recent coast-to-coast smoking test.
BARCLAY: In this test, hundreds of men and women smoked Camels,
and only Camels, for thirty days....an average of one to
two packs a day. After careful, weekly examinations of
these smokers' throats...two thousand, four hundred and
seventy examinations in all...the throat specialists
reported not one single case of throat irritation due tosmoking Camels!
SMITH: Test Camel mildness for yourself. Yes, try rich, full-
flavored Camels. If, at any time, you are not convinced
that Camels are the mildest cigarette you ever smoked,
return the package with the unused, cigarettes to the
makers of Camels, and you will receive its full purchase
price, plus postage.
BARCLAY: Yes, try Camels. And remember...Camels by the carton
are the best buy!
SMITH: Camel cigarettes now present Act II of [Walt Disney's] "Pinocchio".
starring Fanny Brice and Hanley Stafford, with Jeffrey
Silver as Pinocchio, Hans Conried as Honest John, [Janet Wald] and
Arthur Q. Bryan as Jiminy Cricket.
SNOOKS: Did Pinocchio like being an actor, Daddy?
FATHER: No. He didn't like it at all.
FATHER: Because Stromboli soon discovered that he could make
lot of money with Pinocchio, so he locked the little boy
in a cage.
SNOOKS: (WHIMPERS) He locked him in a cage?
FATHER: What's the matter with you?
SNOOKS: Poor little Pinocchio -- locked up in a dirty old cage.
FATHER: Well, I can't help it.
SNOOKS: Take him out of the cage!
FATHER: Now, look, Snooks. He's in this cage because that's the
way the story goes. If he wasn't in the cage, there
wouldn't be any story, and you'd be up in bed. Asleep.
SNOOKS: (PAUSE) Daddy!
SNOOKS: I'm glad he's in a cage!
FATHER: Fine! Now may I continue?
SNOOKS: Please do.
FATHER: Thank you.
MUSIC: SNEAKS IN "NARRATION THEME" VERY SOFTLY
FATHER: Just when Pinocchio had given up all hope, little Jiminy
Cricket found him in the cage .. And he called to the
Blue Fairy -- and she come down, and decided to give
Pinocchio one more chance .. So she unlocked the cage,
and Pinocchio and Jiminy went hurrying home. And as they
were going along the street --
PINOCCHIO: No sir! Nothing can stop me now, Jiminy. I'll make good
JIMINY: You'd better!
PINOCCHIO: I will! I'm going to school!
JIMINY: That's the stuff, Pinoke!
PINOCCHIO: I'll be smart, too! I'd rather be smart than be an actor!
HONEST J: (COMING IN) Well, well, well - if it isn't my little
JIMINY: (WORRIED) Oh-oh -- It's Honest John.
HONEST J: Tell me, Pinocchio -- how do you like the Great Stromboli?
PINOCCHIO: Oh, he was awful! He locked me in a cage!
HONEST J: He did?
PINOCCHIO: And he wouldn't feed me -- and he made me sing all night,
and then --
HONEST J: Oh, you poor, poor boy! You must be a nervous wreck!
PINOCCHIO: But I'm not! I'm just ....
HONEST J: Let me see your face! ... Of course! .. Just as I thought!
A slight touch of monetary, complications -- with bucolic
semi-lunar contraptions of the flying trapezius!
PINOCCHIO: Oh, golly!
HONEST J: Just open your mouth! Say "hippopotamus"!
PINOCCHIO: (MOUTH WIDE) Hi-ho-ha-ha-uh--
HONEST J: I knew it! Compound transmission of the pandemonium
with precussion of spasmodic disintegration!
PINOCCHIO: (AWED) Is that bad?
HONEST J: Let me feel your pulse! ... Oh, my dear! Oh, my goodness!
Palpitating syncopation of the killer-diller - with a
Bongo Bongo Congo of the Bloop Bloop Bloop! My boy, you
PINOCCHIO: (MEEKLY) Allergic!
HONEST J: Yes! And there's only one cure. A vacation on Pleasure
PINOCCHIO: Pleasure Island?
HONEST J: That happy land of carefree boys! No school, no work -
just fun and noise! ... I'll take you there! Just wait
here, my boy - (FADING) - I'll go and get my carriage!
PINOCCHIO: (EXCITED) Jiminy! Did you hear what he said? I'm going
JIMINY: (WHISTLES SHARPLY, TO STOP HIM)
PINOCCHIO: (PUZZLED) What's the matter, Jiminy?
JIMINY: Pinocchio....Don't let him fool you! That Pleasure
Island is a racket! That's where little boys make
jackasses of themselves!
PINOCCHIO: They do?
JIMINY: You bet they do! Their ears grow long - and then they
sprout tails, and then they can't even talk, they just
bray - like this - (BRAYS)
PINOCCHIO: (SCARED) Oh, golly! Let's go home!
JIMINY: That's what I say, let's go..(A TAKE) Hey, what do you

SNOOKS: (INTERRUPTING) Daddy.
SNOOKS: Just tell me the story!
DADDY: Hmmmm, I should have made you go to sleep in the
DADDY: Oh, all right! When Pinocchio and Jiminy get to
Geppetto's cottage, they found him out.
SNOOKS: What do they find out about him?
DADDY: (EXASPERATED) They found he was gone! And for
Heaven's sake, stop asking questions! I can't
stand it any more!
SNOOKS: Poor little daddy.
DADDY: You pester me - you interrupt me -- you drive me
SNOOKS: Would you feel better if I stopped asking questions?
SNOOKS: (PAUSE) Poor little daddy.
DADDY: Now, sit back and listen! Jiminy and Pinocchio
went looking for Geppetto and where do you
they found him?
DADDY: Inside a whale.
SNOOKS: (OFF HAND) Oh.
DADDY: Oh? Is that all you have to say? He was actually
inside a great big whale.
SNOOKS: (UNIMPRESSED) That's what you said.
DADDY: But, isn't that remarkable? A man! A full grown man!
Isn't that an awful lot for a whale to swallow?
SNOOKS: Isn't it an awful lot for me to swallow?
DADDY: Well, it happens to be true. What's more Jiminy
and Pinocchio went down to the bottom of the sea
and joined Geppetto inside the whale.
SNOOKS: Imagine that.
DADDY: But then the whale clamped his teeth and they couldn't
SNOOKS: The teeth couldn't come out?
DADDY: No. Pinocchio, Jiminy and Geppetto couldn't come out.
SNOOKS: But you said --
DADDY: Never mind what I said. You said the whale's teeth
came out, which is false.
SNOOKS: Were they false teeth?
DADDY: Look, let's get out of the whale's mouth.
SNOOKS: How we gonna do it?
DADDY: Well, Pinocchio had an idea. He figured a way to make
the whale blow them out.
SNOOKS: Did he make the whale cough?
DADDY: Well, you're pretty close I admit. But how would you
go about making a whale cough?
SNOOKS: Get his feet wet?
DADDY: Whales don't have feet. What Pinocchio did was build a
fire in the whale's stomach.
SNOOKS: How did that make the whale blow them out?
DADDY: I guess you've never seen a whale sneeze?
SNOOKS: A whale's knees?
SNOOKS: But you said they didn't have legs!
DADDY: Stop acting cute! The whale sneezed. He
sneezed, do you understand?....Achoo! (PAUSE)
Well, say something!
DADDY: Snooks, I think I'm going to put you to bed.
SNOOKS: No, I'll be good. Tell me the rest of the story.
DADDY: Very well. The whale sneezed them out and old Geppetto
nearly drowned. But Pinocchio came to his aid, and
towed him in to shore. In doing so, the little wooden
boy gave up his own life to save his father's!
SNOOKS: Poor Pistachio!
MUSIC: SNEAKS IN "NARRATION THEME" .. SOFTLY
DADDY: And when the old man came to, he picked Pinocchio
out of the water where he was lying, and carried
him home, and put him on the bed. And then he
kneeled by the bed and cried and cried....
GEPPETTO: (SOBBING) Pinocchio....Oh, my boy..my brave little
boy....(CONTINUES SOBBING SOFTLY)
DADDY: And as he knelt there, the beautiful blue light came
in through the window again....It was the Blue Fairy
herself...and she touched Pinocchio with her golden
wand, and she said -- (MUSIC CUTS)
FAIRY: (SOFTLY) Prove yourself brave, truthful and unselfish,
and some day you will be a real boy....Awake, Pinocchio,
GEPPETTO: (SOBBING) My poor boy....my poor boy.
PINOCCHIO: Father - what are you crying for?
GEPPETTO: Because you're dead, Pinocchio.
PINOCCHIO: No, I'm not.
GEPPETTO: Yes you are. Now lie down --
PINOCCHIO: But, Father. I'm alive - see! And I'm - I -- I'm a
real boy! (MUSIC SNEAKS INTRODUCTION .. VERY SOFT)
GEPPETTO: (INCREDULOUS) You are!.....You're alive! And you are

Pinocchio - now all my wishes have come true!

SMITH: Yes, try Camels in your "T-Zone"...T for Taste and
T for Throat. See how Camel's choice tobaccos,
properly aged and expertly blended, bring you rich,
full flavor as well as mildness....See if Camels
don't suit your "T-Zone" to a T!
SNOOKS: Daddy. . .
DADDY: Oh, no.... Snooks, you mean you haven't fallen asleep
SNOOKS: How could I - with such a short commercial?.... Besides
I want to hear that other part. You know -- where they
always say that the Screen Guild show supports the Motion
Picture Relief Fund and its Country House and Hospital.
DADDY: All right, consider it said! Now run along to sleep!
SNOOKS: But what about all those nice people, Daddy?
DADDY: What people ?
SNOOKS: The makers of Camel Cigarettes. Doyouknow that every

other hospitals free Camels are being sent to: Veterans's
Hospital, Van Nuys, California.....U.S. Naval Hospital,
Newport, Rhode Island...and U.S. Marine Hospital,
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. That makes a total of more than
