DO NOT expect 'Tom Sawyer'
5 January 2000 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

If you watch this cartoon for the purpose of seeing 'Tom Sawyer' represented on screen, you won't like it. It is not for analytical study; it is a children's cartoon, and for this purpose it serves admirably. It's a great movie to show young kids. It provides a good enough background of the story for it's title. It has a lot of catchy sing-songs which kids will enjoy. It also goes out of its way to be mild an non-offensive (the character 'Injun Joe' is here renamed 'Tatoo Joe'), which is fine for its target audience. Sometimes, it seems to make the issues too subdued for the complex work of Tom Sawyer. The issue of slavery is brought up occasionally, but then only awkwardly. The cast does a fine job, Ross Malinger and Ryan Slater in particular as Tom and Huck are great fun to (hear). Remember that a waxed-over version of a story, for children, can still be enjoyable.
