German translation:Jiminy
Explanation:
Letztlich wird Pinocchio sogar in einen Esel verwandelt. Da kann auch Jiminy, die Grille mit Zylinder, wenig ausrichten, die Pinocchios Gewissen spielt. Doch alles nimmt ein gutes Ende. Pinocchio rettet sich und Gepetto aus großer Gefahr und wird zur Belohnung von der Fee zu einem richtigen kleinen Jungen gemacht.

Pepe?


Explanation:
Drat, I deleted my first answer... I found several sites where the "Grille" is referred to as Pepe, specially when talking about a new pinocchio movie, but also in a play (reference below). Others just call it "die sprechende Grille". You also find "Jiminy Grille", but to me that sounds like the Disney name of the beast, I don't think it's the original name. A search for Jiminy Grille on altavista gives mainly sites connected to Disney. Pity I lost the book!
