The Coachman is the main antagonist in Disney's 1940 movie Pinocchio. He is voiced by Charles Judels, who also voiced Stromboli in the same movie.
The Coachman is an old man and chubby owner of "Pleasure Island", where he takes bad-mannered children and allows them to misbehave worse than before, resulting in them transforming into donkeys. The Coachman and his mysterious, hooded minions then sell the donkeys to salt mines for a profit.
The coachman is first seen at the Red Lobster where he is talking to Honest John and Gideon there he tells them that he is collecting stupid little boys and that if they could round up a few, he will give them lots of money. At midnight the Coachman gets all the boys and brings them to Pleasure Island and lets them do what they want. When the boys all turn into donkeys, he rounds them up. All the donkeys that can't talk are shipped to salt mines and those who can, are possibly kept in a pen. The fate of the coachman is unknown.
The Coachman appears in the SNES version of Pinocchio - as a Boss. He was only seen in a level called Escape from Pleasure Island where Pinocchio battled against him on the top of a Cliff. when the boss battle ends - one of the donkeys saved Pinocchio by kicking the Coachman and send him falling off the edge - until Pinocchio escapes.
He was played by the Dutch actor Charles Judels.
The Coachman might not be human. But, some possiable hints of the Coachman making a devilish grin about his Pleasure Island plan, and his henchmen who might not be human either. He had four fingers on each hand of his gloves, so they were easy to draw.

The Coachman was thought to be the secondary antagonist of the film.
The Coachman might be a symbolism of Satan.
