Pinocchio is a whirlwind with his head in the clouds. He is loud, energetic, jumps around, disturbs and interrupts other children. He never stops talking and does not listen. 

Actually, he is a pain in the neck and quite often gets himself into trouble. But he is also open, outgoing and creative and finds it easy to get enthusiastic about something. Why does he wander the world instead of returning home to his father Geppetto? Simply for the thrill of it? Does he actually fight against something? Is he just hyperactive? Is it puberty hitting? In the end, he saves his father, grows from this moment and takes on responsibility.
