Opening Narration

Huck: I'm Huck Finn. It all started out in our graveyard in Hannibal, Missouri when Tom Sawyer, Becky Thatcher and me were on our way home
Becky: I don't see why we had to come this way?
Tom: 'Cause it's a short cut, Becky. See that old head stone, Becky. That's where me and Huck saw Injun' Joe kill Doctor Robinson.
Becky: Oh, I 'm not staying in this awful place another second.
Huck: It's Injun' Joe!
Tom: When Injun' Joe escaped from jail, folks said he'd gone down river, but here he was big as life and out to get Tom and me for testifying against him in court
Injun' Joe: I'll find you!
Huck: I thought Tom and me knew this cave but we got all mixed up.
Tom: This way!
Huck: No, that way!
Injun' Joe: Trying to get away from me,  huh!. I'll find you! No matter where you go!
Huck: And I had a funny feeling that he was right. That we'd see him again.

Cast of THE NEW ADVENTURES OF HUCKLEBERRY FINN

When Huck, Tom and Becky entered a cave to elude Injun Joe they inadvertently discovered a mysterious portal that took them to strange animated worlds filled with pirates, leprechauns, evil castles, the Land of La Mancha, enchanted valleys, a Gorgon creature, Hercules, Conquistadors, and the sunken city of Atlantis.

Will they ever find their way home is anyone's guess, but for now they must keep one step ahead of the vengeful Injun Joe who has vowed ""I'll find you! No matter where you go, I'll find you!"
