I used to love this movie! I think if I watched it now, I wouldn't like it as much as I did back then just because it is more of a kid movie than anything. Tom and Huck are best friends. Huck heard that if you take a dead cat to the graveyard at night, then it will remove warts. While they were there, they witnessed a murder by Injun Joe, but Muff Potter is framed for it. Tom and Huck had signed an oath saying that if either of them came forward about it, they would drop dead and rot. They go on a hunt for the treasure map that Joe stole from a grave. After Joe finds the first treasure, he burns the map and discovers that Tom was a witness to the murder. He warns Tom that if he ever told anybody what he knew, he will kill him. Everyone thought that Tom was dead, and Tom and Huck's friendship was being torn apart because the map was gone. Tom can't take seeing Muff get the blame so he comes out and confesses, and now Joe is after him. The adventure continues as they find the treasure and destroy Injun Joe.
