‘Pinocchio’ Character Busts a Move & We Can’t Stop Watching

Have you ever been scrolling through social media when a video or photo pops up that you can’t help but watch more than once? THIS is one of those situations! A video has surfaced showing a Pinocchio (1940) Disney character busting a move on the dance floor… and we simply can’t stop watching.

Pinocchio is a hot topic right now among Disney fans! Disney released a live-action version of the 1940 animated classic Pinocchio. The live-action Pinocchio dropped on Disney+ Day, September 8, 2022.

Despite the use of film stars including Tom Hanks, Cynthia Erivo, Giuseppe Battiston, Luke Evans, Benjamin Evan Ainsworth, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and Keegan-Michael Key… the movie is not receiving the best reviews.

The film landed a Rotten Tomatoes score of 27% with the statement, “Visually dazzling but soulless, the largely inert Pinocchio reaffirms that you should always let your conscience be your guide… away from unnecessary remakes.”

Alas, Disney fans are finding other ways to spread a little Pinocchio love with the share of what looks like an old video from Fantasyland Holiday. The dance party consists of two Pinocchio antagonists characters, including Honest John and his sidekick, Gideon.

Well, Gideon may be a mute cat in the classic animated film, but he sure does know how to light up the dance floor! @shannbon took to social media to share, “My favourite scene from the live action Pinocchio movie.” Check out the video below:

Way to go, Gideon! We’re pretty sure we all need more of this in our life! While you’ll spot Eeyore and Honest John dancing along, the true star from this resurfaced video is, without a doubt, Gideon.

Disney dance parties at Walt Disney World Resort and Disneyland Resort are common during special holidays such as Halloween and Christmas. And while the children and Disney adults enjoy dancing along, nothing beats having a character that gets into the fun!
