pinocchio and the caged chinese boy

My friend Jessica recently snapped this photo on a recent trip to Disneyland:

I'm assuming this is a scene from "Pinocchio's Daring Journey." Jessica writes:
So apparently Pinocchio is either lying or making friends with a caged Chinese boy. I rode the ride twice to make sure I saw it correctly as the caged Chinese boy was in a corner in the beginning of the ride and it was dark. I wasn't sure I saw it.

I dont remember this in the movie, and I guess I never went on the ride before. Just weird.
Indeed. Very weird. Pinocchio is about to poke a caged Chinese kid with his nose. It's been a long time since I've seen the movie... and I don't remember any caged Chinese kids either. What the hell is happening here? There's something seriously wrong with the Chinese kid's eyes. That's racist!
