A circus monkey is periodically manhandled by its owner throughout the first half of the film, but it comes to a head in 2 scenes: (1) a prolonged physical and verbal abuse scene from 51:39 to 49:52, and (2) a scene where the owner and the monkey fight for control from 34:00 to 32:25

As in the original story, a talking cricket is a major character.

There are rabbits in the afterlife area that are presumably dead. They have exposed rib cages, but are able to walk and play cards games, etc.

SPOILER: The movie ends by skipping forward through time. A cricket dies peacefully of old age at 14:11 and is shown on screen until 14:01. Also, a monkey dies peacefully of old age at 14:48.

There are snakes in the scenes with the wood spirit’s sister, who Pinocchio visits every time he dies.

pinocchio doesn't know much about the world and the puppet master tricks him into signing an unfair contract to perform at the carnival. some potentially triggering language like "i am your master and you are a slave"

Sebastian is crushed several times in the film, but it's cartoonish and he survives each time.

The movie starts with Geppetto's son Carlo dying during World War I. Later on, Pinocchio dies several times, but his nature as a living puppet means it doesn't stick except for one point at the end, and even that is quickly undone.

Carlo’s book which his father is attached to postmortem is (seemingly accidentally) destroyed by the monkey. Pinocchio himself is damaged a few times but always repaired, he also looks less like a toy and more like wood here.

No, but Pinocchio performs a defamatory song and dance about Mussolini and fascist Italy that switches out a lot of words from the original song with "poop," "poops," "fart," "farting," "caca," and "boogers." The act lasts from 48:02 to 47:20.

A monkey spits up a cricket. It's implied that the monkey swallowed the cricket (or at least stored him in his mouth) while they were in the ocean to save the cricket from drowning. When they get to dry land, the monkey coughs the cricket out. The cricket is alive and well (albeit exhausted). The scene lasts from 20:45 to 20:40.

Count Volpe falls off a cliff, and at the moment when he hits a rock at the bottom, you can hear a crunching sound.

No: the movie takes place in fascist Italy during World War 1, and there are frequent depictions of fascism and fascist police, but it is clear the movie is taking a strong stance against fascism.

Geppetto clearly suffers from PTSD from the loss of his child and pinnochio not acting like Carlo or asking to many questions etc appears to trigger him (mental health definition not internet definition)

You could read the Captain of the boat as possibly committing suicide when the Dogfish ,but admittedly it's not clear and there's room for the interpretation that he just swam to safety

You could argue Pinocchio is neurodivergent coded (such as taking things too literally) ,but that's probably unintentional. It's at least in the category of not literal but might give flashbacks in regards to be mistreated for being "different"

Cricket is the narrator of the story, so he sometimes breaks the fourth wall to talk to the audience.

The closest is probably the Podesta heavily emphasizing how able-bodied Candlewick is as an example of how he's a "model fascist youth". Otherwise there's not a whole lot going on despite being set in a time and place where it was dangerous to be physically or mentally disabled. Although you could argue that Pinocchio might be neurodivergent coded (at least) unintentionally and is ostracized for stuff like taking expressions too literally. File that under: it's complicated

Pinocchio doesn't wear clothes throughout the film, yet he is not an anatomically correct human. So while technically he is nude for the entire film, it doesn't really matter cause he was designed more or less like a mannequin.

Spazzatura, Pinnochio, Gepetto and the cricket all drown, but none of them were permanently dead from it.
