* JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Tom. He's quite often a terrible {{Jerkass}}, but most of these instances spring from thoughtlessness rather than any actual malice. When it comes down to it, he actually has a very powerful conscience and never wishes any ''serious'' harm on anyone. Perhaps most telling is Aunt Polly's comment to herself when she discovers the letter he was planning on giving her: -->"I could forgive the boy, now, if he'd committed a million sins!"

** [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]; it's noted that Huck is always the first boy to get out of shoes when the weather is warm and "the last to resume leather in the fall".

* BarefootPoverty: Tom envies HuckleberryFinn for not having to wear shoes. He doesn't seem to realize it's because he doesn't have any shoes or even parents to make him put them on if he did. ** But then, once Huck does receive shoes from Widow Douglas, he can't stand wearing them. ** [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]]; it's noted that Huck is always the first boy to get out of shoes when the weather is warm and "the last to resume leather in the fall". He ''does'' own shoes, but until he's adopted no one cares about him enough to make him wear them.

There have been many adaptations of this novel over the years: Films for the big and small screens (in 1973 alone it yielded both a big-screen musical and a MadeForTVMovie), a short-lived [[Theatre/TheAdventuresOfTomSawyer Broadway musical in 2001]], a DirectToVideo animated version with a FunnyAnimal cast, and an anime version for Anime/WorldMasterpieceTheater. Believe it or not, it's even been adapted into two games for the [[NintendoEntertainmentSystem NES]]. One is a PlatformGame developed by SETA and the other is a RolePlayingGame by [[Creator/SquareEnix Square]] that wasn't exported beyond Japan.

The book is in public domain, and the full text is available online at [[http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/74 Project Gutenberg]]. (Square also created a game loosely based on this novel that never made it outside Japan and a little-known musical [[Theatre/TheAdventuresOfTomSawyer by the same name]] was created.)

One is a PlatformGame developed by SETA and the other, a RolePlayingGame by [[Creator/SquareEnix Square]]. The novel was also adapted into an anime as part of the Anime/WorldMasterpieceTheater.
