The Adventures of Mark Twain is an amazing journey of imagination, humour and heart, and a must for fans of Aardman Studios.The film features a series of vignettes extracted from several of Mark Twain’s works, built around a plot that features Twain’s attempts to keep his “appointment” with Halley’s Comet. Tom Sawyer, Becky Thatcher, and Huck Finn stow away with Mark Twain on an incredible journey in Twain’s airship.The journey introduces the three friends to a variety of the author’s characters from; The Diary of Adam and Eve, Huckleberry Finn, The Mysterious Stranger, The Famous Jumping Frog of Caliverous County and Captain Stormfield’s Visit to Heaven. The sequence based on The Mysterious Stranger reportedly received over ten million views upon being posted on YouTube.
