#ThrowbackThursday: Cliff Edwards – ‘When You Wish Upon a Star’ (Pinocchio)


So today’s throwback goes all the way back to Pinocchio, released in 1940.

This was Disney’s second movie, following their first release of Snow White (1939). If you like Snow White go check out my #Two4Tunesday post!

‘When You Wish Upon a Star’ will always be one of my top Disney songs, 75 years after it’s release and I can still enjoy it today. I like how the timelessness of their films and songs really brings out a type of ‘magic’ which is truly unique to Disney.

Pinocchio is an amazing film and there are so many aspects to it I love. The animation and artwork is admirable and the storyline is great to follow!

But I think above all this comes Jiminey Cricket – the real star of the show! He’s my favourite character of this film, I think it’s the top hat that wins me over, or maybe the miniature suite and umbrella.

Anyway, make sure you listen to this classic and find Matt’s #ThrowbackThursday here.
