The movie starts with Gelato and a whole back story about himself, how he’s a toymaker and why he has three ducklings that he calls his children. I find it funny when they mention how they play Monopoly and how Greg (a duckling) is interested in real estate!Ã‚ I got sort of confused though when Pistachio lied and his nose grew, but when he told the truth it didn’t shrink, but then I thought of copyright and stuff from Disney so I figured not to worry about that.Ã‚ They had funny names, like one island was named Bouyardee from that pasta brand! Pistachio was made from Pistachio wood, and even the wood had thoughts of its own!Ã‚ It’s basically a spoof of Pinocchio, with humor and a great lesson involved. I really enjoyed it, and considering my age, that’s saying something. Mentioning things like Monopoly, having an awkward moment with a disguise almost being ruined and a vegetable saying “Meow..?” is plenty of fun for me so I recommend getting this movie.
