Sam Henderson posts some pages from the Dell comic book titled TV'S NEW ADVENTURES OF PINOCCHIO, which was based on an early 1960s TV series of the same name, produced by Rankin/Bass. I agree with his assessment:

"I put this up because it has some of the weirdest perspective in a mainstream comic. The artist and editor probably didn't care, though I bet it had a circulation higher than any comic now."

And, for comparison, below is one of the syndicated series of 5 minute cartoons, animated in the puppet "Animagic" style, made famous in their later production of RUDOLPH THE RED NOSED REINDEER.

I think the cricket is supposed to be a thinly disguised racial caricature like Calvin and the Colonel.
