    The Adventures of Mark Twain
    Will Vinton, the stop-motion animation whiz who brought us The California Raisins, is the principal creative force behind The Adventures of Mark Twain. A clay-model Twain, voiced by James Whitmore, sets out in a hot-air balloon to find Halley's Comet. Joining the waspish humorist on his journey are some of his favorite creations, including Tom Sawyer, Becky Thatcher and Huckleberry Finn. As the balloon ascends further into the sky, we are treated to animated dramatization of such Twain classics as "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County." Though brilliantly conceived and executed, Adventures of Mark Twain might have been even more effective had it been shortened by ten minutes or so. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      Silly Clay Romp Through The Skies


      This movie is just really neat. A nice play on several Twain classics, yet instead of floating down the Mississippi they're flying to meet Haley's Comet. The Twain character really captures what one would imagine his personality to be. Cool animation and bizarre, almost frightening scenarios. Check it out.

      Not as good as I remember

      I loved this movie when I was a kid. I used to watch it a lot, but hadn't seen it in years. I saw it was on sale so I decided to buy it. It was ok, but not quite as good as I remember. There are some parts in the movie that might be a bit scary for younger kids.
