Back in the late 80’s and early 90’s, The Disney Channel was still a subscription TV station, but I can remember living for their almost monthly previews and recording as many movies as I could. This included their Disney Channel original movies, and one of those was Back to Hannibal: The Return of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. I watched the movie again recently, and it is still a fun one.

Naturally, there are several references to the famous books written about these characters by Mark Twain. You just need a passing familiarity with them to get most of the references, and even then you can still follow the main story.

It’s been years since those last stories took place, and the freed slave Jim Watson (Paul Winfield) is now working on the docks loading ships. He’s doing this late one foggy night when Lyle Newman (Shea Farrell), a manager for the freight company, is also down there. When he cries out, Jim runs to investigate. Unfortunately, Lyle is not to be found, and that leads to an accusation that Jim killed him and dumped him in the river. Panicked, Jim runs.

And he runs to one person he knows he can trust – Huckleberry Finn (Mitchell Anderson). Huck is struggling to be taken seriously as a reporter in St. Louis, but he is immediately willing to help his old friend. Realizing that Jim is going to need a good lawyer, he contacts Tom Sawyer (Raphael Sbarge), who is tired of the small time cases he is being assigned as a lawyer in Chicago.

When the two return to Hannibal to try to clear Jim’s name, they are met with hostility. The entire town already assumes he’s guilty. Worse yet, Lyle was the husband of Becky Thatcher (Megan Follows), who is even less enthused to see Tom again in these circumstances.
