Geppetto is an old man and the tritagonist in Carlo Collodi's book The Adventures of Pinocchio. He is a poor woodcarver (Occasionally depicted instead as a toymaker) and the creator and father of Pinocchio.
Geppetto also served as the protagonist of the ABC telefilm of the same name, as it focuses on him learning the meaning of fatherhood.
Geppetto was introduced when a fellow carpenter called Master Antonio found a talking block of wood which he was about to cut him to make a leg for his table.
In Disney's film Pinocchio, He was less wrathful and wasn't poor. He was voiced by the late Christian Rub in the original film, later voiced by the late Tony Pope, and currently voiced by Jeff Bennett. Geppetto was animated by Art Babbitt.
Title TV version
In the 2000 TV film Geppetto, he is portrayed by Drew Carey. He is the main character in that film, as rather than centering around Pinocchio learning to be a real boy, the focus is more on Geppetto searching for him and along the way learning what it truly means to be a father.
