February 07: Pinocchio's Premiere

On this day in 1940, Disney's animated Pinocchio premiered in New York City. Two days later it would debut in Los Angeles and be generally released February 23.
Released to theaters by RKO Radio Pictures, Pinocchio was Disney's second animated feature.
Believe it or not ... the film was not a commercial success on its initial release. It only recouped $1.9 million against Disney's $2.6 million budget!
