Huckleberry no Bōken (ハックルベリィの冒険?) is a 1976 anime series based on the novel Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain. It is the first of two Huckleberry Finn anime. A second Huck Finn television series was made in 1994, Huckleberry Finn Monogatari.[1]

A feature-length English dub of this series was apparently made, probably in the early 1980s, and broadcast on cable TV in the United States.[2]

Plot summary[edit]

At the end of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, Huck is adopted by the Widow Douglas in return for saving her life. In Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, in some respects a sequel to The Adventures of Tom Sawyer, the widow attempts to "civilize" the newly rich Huck.

Huck is kidnapped by his father but manages to fake his own death and escape to Jackson's Island, where he coincidentally meets up with Jim, a slave of the Widow Douglas' sister, Miss Watson. Jim is running for freedom because he has found out that Miss Watson plans to "sell him South" for $800. Together they construct a raft and travel on the Mississippi River,[3] Jim hoping for freedom from slavery, and Huck searching freedom from his drunk father and controlling foster parent.
