The classic TV series of Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer,
This review is from: Huckleberry Finn and His Friends [DVD] (DVD)
This is the classic Canadian / German television series we all watched and loved during the 80's and early 1990's. Sadly this excellent series hasnt been shown here in the UK for many years, but thanks to Fabulous Films we will soon be able to own the official release of the full series.
Ian Tracey and Sammy Snyders star in this excellent tv series with 26 x 25min episodes covering the material in 'The Adventures Of Tom Sawyer' and 'The Adventures Of Huckleberry Finn' books by Mark Twain.
I loved watching this series when I was a child and none of the movie versions come close to this classic childrens television series. Ian Tracey played a great role as Huckleberry Finn.
The series theme tune was also very memorable as were the opening titles featuring the paddle steamer travelling along the Mississippi river to the lyrics 'time looking back on the days that were slower, when living was easy and neighbours were friends...'
I cannot recommend this television series enough. buy it now and go on an amazing adventure with Tom and Huck.
