Unbeknownst to them, Tom's signature marble was left behind at the murder site, and Injun Joe is hot on their trail. Back in town, Tom's friend Muff has been framed for the murder. Now Tom is faced with the most important decision of his life. Knowing that telling the truth may get him and Huck killed, does he break his promise to huck in order to exonerate muff... or does he keep quiet, selling Muff down the river? Ultimately, he does the right thing, and testifies in court to Muff's innocence. Feeling frightened and betrayed, Huck runs away. Tom's worst nightmare comes true when he comes face-to-face with Injun Joe while exploring a cave at the town picnic. Just as Tom is about to meet his maker, Huck returns to help him defeat Injun Joe in one final and fateful melee.

After enjoying Mark Twain's "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer", I hoped this adaptation would do it justice. It was fine for the most part, but Huck's character was made much too angsty; nothing like the Huckleberry Finn of Twain's original classic. The story at least wasn't over-simplified, but the obvious change in Huck's personality made it hard for me to really enjoy.

A cute film about boys being mischievous, it is violent with 2 murders, but the bad guy gets his in the end....
