    "Hanna-Barbera made one of its rare forays into prime-time entertainment with this way-out, way-ahead-of-its-time mash-up of American literature and fantasy adventure that mixes live action and animation. Set during the events of Mark Twain's classic Tom Sawyer, the series places Tom Sawyer (Kevin Schultz), Huck Finn (Michael Shea) and Becky Thatcher (Lu Ann Haslam) in deadly peril following Injun Joe's (Ted Cassidy) escape from the courtroom.

    Spotted by the revenge-minded renegade on a dark and stormy night, the trio flees into a cave and plunge into a series of fantastic adventures, each rendered in a unique style of animation. But whether they are in La Mancha, Lilliput or Ancient Greece, they continually encounter murderous villains, miscreants who all share the same face - the face of Injun Joe!"


    Could there possibly be an interpretation of Mark Twain's literature stranger than this? I feel like I have to see this crazy thing NOW.

    This show was later seen in syndication as part of "The Banana Splits and Friends Show". It's also referenced during the show's "Hold the Bus" segments.

    Well,the characters on the show aren't much like Tom, Huck, and Becky of the book. But the concept is interesting. Fans are hoping to see clean prints and missing footage on DVD.
