In Carlo Collodi's 1883 novel "The Adventures of Pinocchio", Jiminy Cricket was such a minor character, he didn't have a name. It was only in Walt Disney's 1940 adaptation that the role was expanded and Jiminy Cricket became a wise partner to Pinocchio.
Singer Cliff Edwards, who immortalised the song "When You Wish Upon a Star", voiced Jiminy Cricket until his death in 1971. Following this, Eddie Carroll took over for later animated movies.

Choo's shoes are also featured in the "Sex and the City" series and movie. Public demand for the style of shoe that Carrie lost on a ferry in one episode forced the company to re-release them in time for the movie premiere.
