This is an imaginative work, the creation of Will Vinton, whose shorter claymation films have received wide acclaim. The film, featuring clay models and backgrounds, has Twain (voiced by James Whitmore) traveling in a hot air balloon in search of Halley's Comet. Accompanying Twain on his

journey are some of his most famous creations: Tom Sawyer (voiced by Chris Ritchie), Becky Thatcher (voiced by Michele Mariana), and Huckleberry Finn (voiced by Gary Krug). During the journey, the travelers are treated to retellings of a few of Twain's stories, including "The Diary of Adam and

Eve," and "The Celebrated Jumping Frog of Calaveras County." Vinton's claymation is excellent, using the technique with an engaging sense of wonder. His characters, though models, seemingly come to life, an effect greatly enhanced, thanks to Whitmore and the other talented voices.
