This 1985 movie is known for being absolutely ''gorgeously'' rendered in {{Claymation}}, and for being creepy as hell. [[{{Satan}} Literally.]] It's sometimes considered a "[[AnimationAgeGhetto children's movie]]," but this [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids isn't strictly the case]] -- it's probably too scary for some kids, but anyone who likes animation will probably enjoy the lush visuals. All in all, it's a fascinating and loving {{Deconstruction}} of the man and a number of his stories -- particularly his later ones which caused many to label him a NietzscheWannabe.

* CosmicHorrorStory: The Mysterious Stranger creates a miniature civilization out of clay figures and bestows life on them only so that he can snatch it away again. He points out that he does not do this out of malice, as he has no concept of human morality.

Attempting to [[DescribeTopicHere describe]] ''The Adventures of Mark Twain'' in any sane fashion is probably an exercise in futility. But what the heck. We'll give in a shot.
