Motorino. Motorino was created by the Italian creator Carmelo Silva and appeared in the comic strip “Motorino” (1934).

Motorino is a childlike android created by Trebisondo Genialetti, an old, Geppetto-like mechanic who creates Motorino to make money. Motorino turns out to be significantly more lovable than Genialetti planned, and the two become father and adopted son. However, Motorino has a great affection for sports, especially football, and the predictable Pinocchio-like troubles ensue.
