The Stupid Little Boys are characters in the movie Pinocchio.

Role in the film

They are carried on The Coachman's Stagecoach to visit the Pleasure Island, a place where they can do whatever they want without adults telling them to do anything. The boys are all aged between 5-9 years (Lampwick, however, seems to be between 10-12 years of age, so he may be the oldest of them all). On the island, children can eat junk food, fight, smoke, drink beer, vandalize, and do all sorts of things, and no adults are on the island to stop them. But what they do not know is that while they're having fun, they are converted slowly into donkeys after having acted as such. First, the boys' laughs became the brays of a donkey. Then the boys would grow donkey ears, followed by a tail. Then the boys' faces would turn into that of a donkey, complete with a muzzle. Then the boys' hands and feet would become hooves, with their entire bodies being covered in fur at the same time. Finally, the boys would fall to all fours and their voices would be replaced by full braying. Then the boys would go mad and they would be braying and kicking wildly, some throwing their clothes off. Only a very small handful of boys were fortunate enough to still retain their voices for reasons unexplained. They were then all rounded up by the Coachman's minions to be taken to the dockyards for inspection.

After becoming donkeys, the boys are asked their name by the Coachman going one by one as they are called, and if that answer is a bray, he removed their clothes and puts them into boxes for sale, but if they answer with their name (as happens to Alexander), he holds them to work for him, and to ensure they can't ever rat out the Coachman's evil schemes to the authorities back home. The boys could only watch sadly as they were forced to work like the donkeys they had become.

Most of the transformed boys were sold to the salt mines and the circuses, among other clients, all doomed to a life of intensive labor. It is unknown if any of them ever found a way to become human again, or whatever happened to the talking donkeys forced to stay on the island.
