Pinokyo 1. Bölüm Metni

Once upon a time, an old toymaker, called Geppetto, lived in a small town. His friends were his cat, Figaro, his fish, Cleo, and his toys. He loved one toy more than the others. It was a puppet. He called it Pinocchio and loved it like a son.

One night, before he went to bed, he saw a wishing star and he was very excited:

G (Geppetto): Oh, Figaro! Look, look! The wishing star!

And he made a wish:

G: I wish that my little Pinocchio might be a real boy.

And then he went to bed and fell asleep, thinking of his wish.

Jiminy Cricket was also in the house. He had walked into the house secretly. He wanted to sleep, too. But he couldn’t sleep because the sounds of the clocks and snoring of Geppetto disturbed him. Suddenly he saw a light coming into the house. He was afraid and hid in a cup. Now he was watching what was going on:

The Blue Fairy

A fairy appeared inside the house. It was the Blue Fairy. She turned to Geppetto and said, “Good Geppetto, you have given so much happiness to others. You deserve to have your wish come true.

Then Pinocchio was alive. He saw his hands moving and he was very surprised:

P (Pinocchio):  I can move.

Then he noticed that he was talking and he was surprised again.

P:  I can talk.

And he stood up and he was surprised once more because he saw that he could walk.

P: I can walk!

F: Yes Pinocchio. I have given you life.

P: Why?

F: Because tonight, Geppetto wished for a real boy.

P:  A real boy! Am I a real boy?

F: NO! But you can be a real boy. It is up to you. Prove yourself. Be brave, truthful and unselfish, and someday you will be a real boy.

P: A real boy!

F: You must learn to choose between right and wrong.

P: Right and wrong? But how will I know?

F: Your conscience will tell you.

P: What is conscience?

Jiminy appeared.

J (Jiminy): Conscience is that small voice inside you. It tells you what is right and what is wrong. When you do wrong, it warns you. But people don’t listen to it.

P: Are you my conscience?

J (surprised): No, I am not.

F: Would you like to be Pinocchio’s conscience?

J: Uh, well.

Then the fairy touched Jiminy with the magic wand;

F: Now you are Pinocchio’s conscience. You will help him when there is temptation. You will be his guide along the straight and narrow path.

F (to Pinocchio): Now, remember, Pinocchio, be a good boy. And always let your conscience be your guide.

P: Goodbye my lady.

Now, Jiminy and Pinocchio were alone. Jiminy wanted to teach Pinocchio.

J: Now, you see, the world is full of temptations.

P: Temptations?

J: Yep. Temptations are the wrong things that seem right at the time.

Pinocchio didn’t understand him but he said,

P: I’m gonna do right.

J: and I’m gonna help you. Whenever you need me, just whistle.

Geppetto wakes up

While singing and dancing, Pinocchio stepped into two buckets and fell down. He caused a lot of noise and woke up Geppetto.

G: Who is there?

P: It’s me.

Then Geppetto was very afraid. He thought there was a stranger in the room. He got out of the bed. He took a candle and began to look for the stranger. Then Pinocchio appeared.

P: Here I am.

G: Oh… Pinocchio. But this can’t be real. I think I am dreaming in my sleep.

Then he went back to Pinocchio.

G: Well, say something.

P: You are funny. Do it again.

G: You talk. This is real.

P: Yes, the Blue Fairy cameShe gave me life. She also gave me a conscience. Someday I am going to be a real boy.

Now Geppetto believed it. He was very happy.

G: A real boy. It was my wish. It has come true.

Then he showed Pinocchio to Figaro and Cleo. He was filled with joy. He was walking and dancing in the room. Then he left Pinocchio on the table and began to gather toys for him. Pinocchio played with the fire of the candle. Then he burnt his finger. But it didn’t hurt him. However, when Geppetto saw that his finger was burning, he panicked and took Pinocchio in his arms, and ran about the room, looking for water. Then he dipped Pinocchio’s burning finger into the aquarium.

Then they went to bed.

G: Now, close your eyes and go to sleep.

P: Why?

G: Oh, everybody has to sleep. Besides, tomorrow, you have got to go to school.

P: Why?

G: To learn things and get smart.

Then they fell asleep.


Children were going to school. Pinocchio heard them and he got out of the house. He was very excited. He wanted to join the children.

P: Oh, father. Who are those?

G: They are your schoolmates

Then Geppetto gave him an apple and a book and sent him to school.

P: Goodbye father.

G: Goodbye son. Hurry back.

Two Swindlers

They saw school boys running to school.

HJ: Look Gideon. Innocent children are rushing to school. It is a fountain of knowledge and these children have thirsty little minds.

Then he saw Pinocchio running.

HJ: Look Giddy, look! Amazing. A wooden boy! A live puppet without strings. If we sell him to someone, we can make a fortune.

Then he saw a poster on the wall. It was a poster of Stromboli’s puppet show. Honest John thought he could sell the wooden boy to Stromboli. Then they followed Pinocchio along the street. Then Honest John caused Pinocchio to fall down with his cane.

HJ: Oh, I am terribly sorry. I hope you are not injured.

P: I am alright.

HJ: Where are you going, boy?

P: I am going to school.

HJ: School? Then you haven’t heard of the easy road to success.

P: No.

HJ: Bright lights, applause, fame. You will be famous. You are a natural-born actor.

P: But I am going to school.

HJ: No. You are wasting your time. Come. Let’s go to the theatre.

Pinocchio believed him. Then they walked to the theatre. On the way, however, Jiminy found them. He understood that the two men were swindlers and that they were leading Pinocchio astray. He followed and caught them. Then he talked to Pinocchio.

P: Hello Jiminy. I am going to be an actor.

J: Now listen to me boy. Do you remember temptation?

P: Yes I do.

J: Well, that man (Honest John) is temptation.

P: Oh no Jiminy. He is a good man. He is helping me.

J: No. You can’t go with him. Now tell himThank you but I can’t go with you.” because you have got to go to school.

P: OK.

Then Pinocchio went up to Honest John.

P: Goodbye Jiminy.

J: Goodbye. But you are not going to school! Where are you going? Stop Pinocchio. Well, what am I going to tell his father? Well, I will go after him myself.
