Yes, Frollo was sex-obsessed, but at least he was explicit about it. Early Disney films were seriously dark. Except then he goes to bed, makes poor Figaro open the window for him, sees the wishing star, and wishes for Pinocchio to be an actual child. I always wondered how I would have viewed the film as a child. Was Honest John not a monster?

Wholeness Ever After
Lampwick is transforming into a donkey right before Pinocchio's eyes. For a man, that means becoming conscious of our motives, and seeking reality over superficial pleasures. I do remember feeling really disturbed by the Pleasure Island scene and the traumatic donkey phase. Wishing to create man in his own image and see him animated from the clay, or wood in this case. She tells him she's given him life because Geppetto wished for a real boy. This was an obvious allusion by Disney that once an individual becomes a braying jackass, the best they could hope to do is assist in the genuine hero's goals. Cut Your Damn Strings.
📌 Pleasure Island (Pinocchio)
Unfortunately, we often attempt to fill that emptiness with superficial things like more sex, money, drugs, or something else. To my clients who are struggling with these personal issues, I often share the deeper lessons of Pinocchio, which show us how men lie to themselves and hold themselves back. As he sits on the beach, recovering from his painful ordeal, he gets a message from a dove sent by none other than the Blue Fairy. Pleasure Island violates their innocence badly. And, of course, lives happily ever after. Not in the conventional sense but lies nonetheless, lies in the sense that the Blue Fairy tells Pinocchio to prove himself in ways no other person in the movie could.
While all other Disney movies flaunt the lie that is happily ever after, Pinocchio gives it to the audience straight. Look around the world you live in. I would even put him into the running of worst villains in all of cinema. This is what happens to humans throughout history. The darkest parts of Pinocchio that nobody talks about.
