"Pinocchio walks to school. Fox and Gideon originally entered the film where Pinocchio runs unbetween them and the Fox does his wonderful take. At least the scene is called number 1.
Later, Disney chose to give the two guys a solid presentation with dialog etc. in the good old Orson Welles-and-Circus manner. It can be seen from the numbers of the new scenes. Walt even managed to slip Stromboli into the expectations "while we are at it anyway," for otherwise the Italian would have entered just as abruptly as the Fox and Gideon originally were planned to.
"People have got to meet them" as he said about the dwarfs at the foot-end of the bed. In a machine-written continuity (and in a novel) it is logical to meet the villains when they are needed. On film it seems appropriate to show them off first. "Here it comes, dear audience - sit up straight on your chair!" "
