Geppetto is a 2000 made-for-television musical remake of the popular children’s book The Adventures of Pinocchio and the original 1940 Disney film. Starring Drew Carey and Julia Louis-Dreyfus, the film debuted on The Wonderful World of Disney. The score featured original songs written by Broadway composer Stephen Schwartz. Schwartz had developed the songs as a reunion for Mary Poppins stars Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke, but Andrews was undergoing throat surgery so the idea was dropped.
