1987: PINOCCHIO AND THE EMPEROR OF THE NIGHT Movie Adaptation (Marvel)

From Christmas 1987 (cover-dated March 1988), Marvel's adaptation of Filmation's PINOCCHIO AND THE EMPEROR OF THE NIGHT animated movie.

Remakes (and sequels) of successful Disney movies based on public-domain fairy tales and stories are nothing new (and intentionally designed to trick dozy buyers and undemanding kids) but you'd expect better of the Filmation crew.  I've not seen the movie but, knowing their usual production standards, it probably isn't a stunner. 

The Marvel tie-up was because the film was released by NEW WORLD PICTURES, Marvel's owners.
