Trivia

Many future adaptations copied little things from this series. Big River; which was a big Broadway hit in 1986; and a musical adaptation of Huck Finn; has a theme song with a line in it:"Look out for me! Oh Muddy waters! Your mysteries, are deep and wide!" This line appears to be lifted from the lyrics to the theme song of this show:"That Mississippi, she is a mystery!" And overall the theme song to this show is very similar to the theme song to Big River; if you listen to them both. See more »

Inventive series that was prematurely canceled
10 December 2000 | by MartaSee all my reviews

I absolutely loved this series when I was 11; it aired Sunday evenings, and I never missed watching it. I don't think they made more than a dozen or so episodes of it, and I was devastated when it was canceled. It was never given the chance it should have had. Ted Cassidy played Injun Joe, and a more menacing villain it would have been hard to find; he was great in the role. As he chased Tom, Huck and Becky from one animated world to the next, it pulled me farther into their predicament and I couldn't wait for the next episode. They always ended in a cliffhanger.

This is a series that will probably never be shown again, and I wonder if any episodes are even still in existence. It would be nice if TVLand would air them, even just in odd places, so we could at least see them again. It was a novel concept ahead of it's time.
