Did You Know?


To appease censors of the time, the African-American slave Jim, who is such an important character in the original novel, is completely omitted from this adaptation, along with all mention of the slavery issue, and Injun Joe, who dies in "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer" and does not appear at all in the novel "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn", appears in this adaptation.

Making Huck Finn this way is like omitting Jesus from the Gospels!
23 April 2013 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is an insanely made TV version of "Huckleberry Finn". I say this because one of the most important characters from the book is completely omitted and THE main point of the novel is completely missing!! This is because back in 1955 the country was very divided racially and some idiots thought that the way to appease the bigots out there was to omit the runaway slave, Jim, from the story! I am pretty sure Samuel Clemens (Mark Twain) would NOT have been pleased and he probably was spinning like a rotisserie in his grave because of this! Because of this, no matter how good the rest of the story is, it's only a pale imitation of the original and they should have been ashamed of themselves for making the story this way. So what are we left with? Well, many of the characters are here but, oddly, Injun Joe is apparently a zombie, as he died in "Tom Sawyer" (a book set BEFORE "The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn"! My advice? See another version or read the book. I like that this book is a rare example of a book that has been both banned by ultra-conservatives and do-gooder liberals--which is a great reason to read it.
