* {{Sequelitis}}: Not for HuckleberryFinn, but the further sequels "Tom Sawyer Abroad" and "Tom Sawyer, Detective." Yes, those really exist. And they were written by Mark Twain himself, too. He lost much of his wealth in bad investments and he needed to support his family.

* ValuesDissonance: Beatings, whether at school or at home, were quite common, and Huck even states that his back doesn't mind anymore.

* TheProblemWithLicensedGames: The SETA game is just another ''VideoGame/SuperMarioBros'' clone and has to do with little to none of the novel, except the characters.

Added DiffLines:

** Adult readers also tend to find Aunt Polly much more sympathetic; for all her faults, she is doing her best to raise her nephew and two other children on her own. Further, she's subjected to the worst AdultFear -- [[spoiler: the loss of a child]] -- not once, but twice, in the course of the book; her emotional torment is all too clear, especially to readers who are parents themselves.

* CompleteMonster: In this DirectToVideo {{animated|Adaptation}} retelling of the [[Literature/TheAdventuresOfTomSawyer classic Mark Twain tale]], with an animal cast, Injun Joe, portrayed here as a [[BearsAreBadNews grizzly bear]] named [[NamesToRunAwayFrom Injurin' Joe]], manages to be even more vicious than his novel counterpart. Joe is a dangerous criminal who regularly robs the local church and its patrons, with the [[PoliceAreUseless Town Sheriff too scared of Joe to stop him.]] Joe forces the innocent and dimwitted Mutt Potter to dig for treasure, then murders Deputy Bean for trying to confiscate the treasure that Potter unearths. Joe then [[FrameUp frames Potter for this crime]], and takes sadistic glee in watching him prepare to be executed. Throughout the film, Joe tries to [[WouldHurtAChild murder Tom Sawyer and whichever of his friends happens to be with him at the time]], for nothing more than revenge for saving Mutt Potter, and sadism. {{Greed}}y and {{sadist}}ic, Injurin' Joe [[KnightOfCerebus stood out]] as a [[VileVillainSaccharineShow shockingly dark villain for such a lighthearted film]].

* CreatorBacklash: Twain wasn't very fond of the story in later years. He preferred ''HuckleberryFinn''.
