Huckleberry Finn and His Friends (Series) (1981-1982)

Huckleberry Finn and His Friends
Huckleberry Finn and His Friends was a 26-part series documenting the exploits of Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer, based on books by American writer Mark Twain. The series was the only filmed version of the Twain classic to cover every episode in the original novel.

Though this Canada-Germany co-produced series was filmed in 1979, it did not appear on any Canadian stations until 1981. The series aired all over the world during the 80's and 90's.
