Study Guide compares the novel Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain to the movie version The Adventures of Huck Finn (1993) Even though this Disney movie omits 24 chapters of the book, it still covers the main plot lines and characters fairly accurately. Too bad the movie left out Tom Sawyer who dominates most of the omitted chapters.
