Geppetto, the woodcarver, has made a beautiful new cuckoo clock, complete with hand-painted trim and heart-shaped pendulum. Proudly, he holds it up for Pinocchio to see, and asks the wooden boy to take it to Mrs. Ramono at once. After promising to go directly there, he and Jiminy Cricket set out for her house. Well, FoulFellow the sly fox and Gideon the cat see them leaving, and they have a different idea. They think it would be really grand to steel the clock and sell it. They'd make a lot of money with that nasty scheme. But Pinocchio has promised his father not to get distracted ... and we're about to find out just how important some promises are to keep!
