Decent Disney attempt at adapting an American favorite by Mark Twain. Mischievious Huck and runaway slave Jim travel down the muddy Mississippi, working on life and friendship and getting into all sorts of adventures in the pre-Civil War era. Fast-paced and amusing with good performances by Wood (in the title role) and Broadway trained Vance (as Jim). Racial epithets and minstrel show dialect have been eliminated in this version. Some material, including Jim's close call with a lynch mob and Huck's drunken, brutal father may be too strong for immature children.

My favorite version of the Adventures of Huckleberry Fin has to be the 1993 Disney version called The Adventures of Huck Fin. There is 108 minutes of non-stop adventure. Elijah Wood stars as Huck and Courtney B. Vance stars as Jim. Huckleberry Fin runs away and follows the Mississippi River with his friend Jim, who’s an escaped slave. Together, the two encounter wild and fun adventures. From this, the two become close and grow a wonderful friendship.
