Storyline

An animated, musical version of Mark Twain's classic novel about the adventures of Tom Sawyer, along with his friends Huck Finn and Becky Thatcher. While spending most of his days avoiding school, work and his Aunt Polly, Tom manages to get himself into trouble on a regular basis. This trouble turns serious, though, when he and Huck witness Injurin' Joe commit a terrible crime and place the blame on his friend, Muff Potter. Though the two boys are terrified of what Joe might do to them, they know that the only way to save Muff is to tell the truth about what they have seen.

Tom Sawyer is an MGM animated film at heart. It has corny songs, requisite love interests, physical humor and that signature art style. But Tom Sawyer is different. MGM usually makes sequels to animated films, putting little thought into them and stripping their essence away. But here they retell a classic story in their own unique way, staying true to the source material's strong narrative. And maybe that's why Tom Sawyer succeeds where so many other MGM features have failed. No habits are broken here, but it's an enjoyable ride all the same. I can't stand the corny country music-flavored songs, but eh. The art is really nice too.
