This version of Pinocchio tells the story of a mystical blue fairy who brings a gullible, naive, and morally confused wooden doll to life. Pinocchio (Mokku) is described as having numerous character flaws that he must learn to overcome in order to be worthy of humanity. Selfishness, rudeness, indolence, obstinacy, over-trusting, self-pity, stupidity, disobedience, compulsive lying, arrogance, greed, cowardice, recklessness, cruelty, foolishness, and an inability to learn from mistakes are some of these character flaws.
Pinocchio (Mokku) is tormented, persecuted, bullied, humiliated, tricked, ridiculed, ostracized, beaten, downtrodden, and subjected to degrading and inhumane treatment throughout the entire series, partly due to his own delinquency and repeated disobedience. Another good example of traditional Japanese stories, which teach moral observance through tough endurance, is this one's straightforward depiction of the austere reality of what it would be like to be literally subhuman growing up in a world of danger and hardship.
