Pinocchio (Fables) The readers first see Pinocchio during the Remembrance Day gala scene in "Legends in Exile," where he reveals to a fellow Fable that he is angry at the Blue Fairy for granting his wish to be a real boy in such a way that he would never grow up into a man. He is over three hundred years old but hasn't hit puberty. He attends the celebration every year in the hopes that she will show up so that he can finally give her a piece of his mind (and boot).
Farfetched Fables This fable is followed by a dialogue between two men, a woman and a hermaphrodite, who discuss the disgusting way in which humans used to reproduce, explaining that it is now all done in a laboratory, without the need to "practice personal contacts which I would rather not describe". The hermaphrodite speaks of the desire to escape physicality altogether and become pure mind.
Farfetched Fables In a symposium discussion following a 1992 performance of the play at the Milwaukee Shaw Festival, Martin Esslin said that the play indicated that Shaw still saw the future in "nineteenth century terms. It's almost as if someone from the 1880s has suddenly woken up in the 1940s". Esslin considered it to be a "very despairing" play, but clearly drawing on Hegelian ideas of a dialectic of the spirit. Stanley Weintraub argued that Shaw was far less despairing than his Fabian colleague H. G. Wells, but that the play is still one of "despair, gloom and death". Julius Novick noted the references to the creation of Israel in the figure of the Jewish chemist, who appears to be based on Chaim Weizmann. Weizmann had previously been portrayed in similar terms in Shaw's 1936 "playlet" "Arthur and the Acetone".
99 Fables "99 Fables" has not yet achieved the status its editor thinks it deserves, though occasionally the book, which was never reprinted and is a relatively rare university press publication, has received significant mention a few times. Leonard Feinberg referred to its "poignant cynicism" in his "Introduction to Satire". An example of March's cynicism is found in the fable, "The Unspeakable Words," which was included in a reader on rhetoric. In the fable, a committee investigates linguistic corruption in "the Brett language," wishing to eradicate four particular offensive words. They find a five-year-old girl who was raised by deaf and dumb parents, and so can not have learned the four offensive words they hope to ban:
Geppetto (Fables) Geppetto is a major character, albeit one that's rarely seen, in the comic book series "Fables", written by Bill Willingham and published by DC Comics as part of the Vertigo imprint.
Geppetto (Fables) As time passed, the process became habitual, and it wasn't too long before every major ruling official within range had been replaced by one of Geppetto's duplicates, and thus, through the Blue Fairy's magic, all of them were loyal to him. However, the Fairy ultimately tired of the game, putting Geppetto in a problematic situation. With his co-conspirators hungry to expand the territory that they controlled, the inability to turn the duplicates human was a problem. Geppetto began to research the magic himself; many of the lords under his control had court magicians in their service and were able to send them to Geppetto to instruct him in the ways of magic. Within a short period of time, Geppetto came to understand how the Blue Fairy performed her magic, but he lacked her unique magical nature, which acted as her power source. During her next visit, he solved that problem by attacking her and hooking her up to a system that allowed him to create elixirs from her body that could turn his duplicates human.
