In the novel, it's Jim who gets painted blue by the Duke and King (Dauphin) as part of a charade they are trying to pull off. In the 1986 feature, it's Huckleberry who gets painted blue for an entirely different reason. See more »
A 213 minute NTSC format DVD version was released 2/20/2007 by Monterey Video for Region 1 which combined the four 60 minute installments into a single feature having 02:02 of opening credits as text over scenes from the feature. A 211 minute PAL format DVD version was released 9/1/2001 by Prism Leisure Corporation of England for Region 2 which has the same content as the 213 minute version except it has only 30 seconds of opening credits running as text over the same woodcut image used in the background of the ending credits in both versions.

I just finished watching this film and i loved it, i love this story but the way that it was portrayed in this paticular film version was wonderful. I loved the way that Patric Day[huck finn] and Sam-Art Williams[jim] interacted throughout the movie, Patric Day brought a great deal to the character of Huck which can only be matched by that of Elijah Wood in the 1993 version that did not follow the same story, the blue paint scene was a paticular favorite of mine because it brought a great deal of comic value to the play which only complimented Mark Twain's original script. This story fills you with so many different emotions i sometimes don't know weather to laugh or cry, its a masterpiece.
