Pinocchio is a wooden puppet that originates from the classic Carlo Collodi novel The Adventures of Pinocchio, but the most famous portrayal of the character is in the 1940 American animated feature under the name Pinocchio produced by Walt Disney. The character originated from the story Pinocchio: Tale of a Puppet. It was made after the success of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs and was released to theaters by RKO Radio Pictures on February 7, 1940.

In "North by North Quahog", Pinocchio appears in a cutaway with Geppetto in which Geppetto pretends to drop his glasses and tries to make Pinocchio tell a lie in order for his nose to penetrate his anus. He is voiced by Hunter Gomez.

In "Love, Blactually", Brian tries to get Cleveland and Loretta back together so he can get Carolyn back. He tells Loretta that she is beautiful and because he is lying his nose gets longer just like Pinocchio's.

In the uncensored version of "Grimm Job" one of Cinderella's sisters hopes that the "painterazzi" will be at the ball. Pinocchio arrives and blows off their requests to pause for a picture, claiming to be in a phone call as his nose grows.

Pinocchio is mentioned in Peter Griffin's "Italian Clown" song in "Brian the Closer".
