Geppetto is a 2000 made-for-television remake of the popular children’s book The Adventures of Pinocchio starring Drew Carey and Julia Louis-Dreyfus. It featured original songs written by Stephen Schwartz.
Carey's role in the film became a recurring butt-of-jokes on his series Whose Line is it Anyway?, which also featured fellow cast member Wayne Brady as a regular performer.
Geppetto (Drew Carey) dearly wishes to become a father. One day his wish is granted by the Blue Fairy (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), and she brings to life a wooden puppet, made by Geppetto, named Pinocchio (Seth Adkins).
In the beginning, everything is rosy for the new family, yet slowly things begin to unravel, culminating with Pinocchio running away. Geppetto, thinking Pinocchio would rather live with the evil Stromboli (Brent Spiner), washes his hands of the whole matter and tries to go back to his lonely life. Stromboli, however, had kidnapped him and was using him as the main attraction in his puppet show.
