Pinocchio (1968 film)
|Hallmark Hall of Fame episode|
|Original air date||8 December 1968|
Pinocchio was recorded on videotape at NBC's Brooklyn Studio.
"Since we didn't want to cheat the audience out of seeing it grow, we hired Bil Baird to create one. Bil stood behind Pinocchio, out of camera range, holding the end of a rod that attached to the nose. When he pushed the rod, the nose, made from expandable material, lengthened. It worked beautifully," Lewine said.
"But when we went on camera, we discovered that you could see the separation between the fake nose and Peter's real one. Two hours of work with the make-up man solved the problem, but it was worrisome," he said.
NBC aired the special on Sunday, December 8, 1968, at 7 p.m. Eastern Standard Time. It pre-empted two regular shows on NBC's schedule, The New Adventures of Huckleberry Finn and Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color.
