In the alternate universe, Pinocchio tries to pass Geppetto off to Rumpelstiltskin as Shrek by painting him green, though Rumpelstiltskin easily sees through the disguise. This is perhaps Pinocchio's attempt at revenge for being turned in to the Duloc Guards.
In the tale "The Shreksorcist", Geppetto hires Shrek to exorcise the possessed Pinocchio because he has no other choice.
He was mentioned to have once been close friends with Friar Crunchypants. Unfortunately, their friendship came to an end once Geppetto mocked his toy-making skills.
