Huckelberry was a young boy , who runs away from home, and floats down the Mississippi River. He meets a run away slave named Jim and the two undertake a series of adventures based on the Picaresque novel by Mark Twain. As the story progresses the duo exploit an array of episodic enterprises, while Huckleberry slowly changes his views of bigotry. Along the way, Huck and Jim meet the King and Duke, who ultimately send the protagonists towards a different route on their journey. As Huck begins to have a change of heart, he gradually begins to distinguish between right and wrong, and conclusively, Huck is faced with the moral dilemma between the world's prejudice, of which he's grown up with, and the lessons Jim has taught him throughout the story about the evils of racism.Written by

Huck's raft is rammed (at around 49 mins) by a ship with a high bow, designed for rough/open seas. But when the camera angle changes, we see a typical Mississippi paddle steamer with the characteristically low bow, steaming by the wreckage. See more »

It's a Disney kid's film that is often appealing to that audience through goofy music, simple emotions and light humor. However, it's also surprisingly dark in its themes and overtly violent in its action. The combination of Disney and Twain just don't quite rub together well...however, Wood is perfectly cast, Vance connects with each of his scenes with great heart, and Sommers does a good job of bringing this world to us. Tonally illogical? Sure...but otherwise, not half bad.
