  • Tom Sawyer

  • Along the banks of the Mississippi river,

  • there once lived a boy named Tom Sawyer,

  • who caused his Aunt Polly more trouble

  • than a barrel of cat fish.

  • Tom Sawyer, you broke Judge Thatcher's

  • window today.

  • That toe's not sore, Tom.

  • Get up and go to school.

  • [breaking glass] Tom Sawyer!

  • Stop where you are, or I'll box your ears.

  • Tom!

  • You called me, Aunt Polly?

  • You broke the cookie jar.

  • Truth was, Tom's mind was on other things,

  • which he soon told to Bill Harper.

  • Bill, meet me tonight down at the river front.

  • What do you aim to do, Tom?

  • I'm not Tom anymore.

  • I'm the Black Avenger of the Spanish Main.

  • You'll be the Terror of the Seas.

  • We're bold, brave river pirates,

  • starting tonight at midnight!

  • Look! A campfire on the island.

  • Somebody's here!

  • Run for it Tom, back to boat!

  • Pirates don't run from trouble, Bill.

  • Come on, let's find out who's

  • at that camp fire.

  • Creeping to the camp fire,

  • the pirates came upon two men,

  • quarreling with each other,

  • Dr. Robinson and Injun Joe.

  • A third man, a tramp named Muff Potter,

  • was asleep nearby.

  • Suddenly, the Injun drew his knife

  • and struck the doctor down!

  • Quickly, the Injun put the knife in the hand

  • of the third man dozing near the fire.

  • Why the Injun's gonna blame someone else.

  • That tramp, Muff Potter,

  • he'll be arrested for sure.

  • Like startled deer, the pirates sped back

  • to their boat and swore each other to secrecy.

  • Only three of us know the truth, Bill.

  • If we talk, that Injun will scalp us.

  • Muff Potter was arrested and it looked

  • as though the truth would never come out.

  • Then one day, Muff Potter's lawyer

  • hauled Tom Sawyer to court

  • and dragged the truth out of him.

  • Now, under oath, point to the man who used

  • this knife that knife on Jackson's Island.

  • Point him out!

  • It was him! There by the window, Injun Joe.

  • You're in a peck of trouble now, Tom Sawyer.

  • Injun Joe's free, and he'll be after you.

  • 'Cause now he knows you saw that fight

  • on Jackson's Island.

  • Weeks passed, and when Injun Joe

  • failed to return, Tom Sawyer grew braver.

  • Then, one day he confided to his girl,

  • Becky Thatcher.

  • It was a black box, full of money,

  • a real treasure box.

  • Well that's what Doc Robinson and Injun Joe

  • quarreled over.

  • I heard them, so I know, Becky.

  • Where is the treasure buried?

  • There's an old barn on Jackson's Island.

  • Must be buried in there.

  • Let me go with you.

  • Nope. Girl's bad luck on treasure hunts.

  • You're just scared.

  • I am not. I'm hunting for that

  • treasure tonight, with Bill Harper.

  • Ready, Terror?

  • Ready, Black Avenger.

  • Start digging in that corner,

  • where the floorboard's loose.

  • Treasure might be there.

  • I'll stand guard.

  • No sooner had Bill started digging

  • then he struck something hard.

  • Tom, I found the treasure! I found it!

  • But just then, Tom ran back from the doorway.

  • Bill, let it be!

  • Quick, up the ladder to the loft!

  • Somebody's coming and I think it's Injun Joe!

  • [laughs] Somebody try steal my... I fix!

  • Carefully, Tom spliced their pants and

  • shirts together, then tied one end to a beam.

  • Soon, they lowered themselves to the floor.

  • Leg it for the river now, Tom.

  • Wait a minute, Injun Joe must have headed

  • for the cave on the other side of the Island.

  • He's gonna rebury the treasure there.

  • Let's go after him.

  • Not me. I'm going home!

  • Not long after, a ferry boat took a

  • picnic crowd to Jackson's Island,

  • and Tom invited Becky Thatcher along.

  • Do you really think Injun Joe hid

  • the treasure in the cave, Tom?

  • I'm not sure, but it would be a good place.

  • Why don't we explore it? Right now!

  • Suddenly, Tom tripped over something,

  • fell to his knees.

  • Becky, look what I tripped over.

  • The treasure!

  • That's wonderful! Now let's go back.

  • Wait! I can't see the entrance

  • to the cave anymore.

  • Becky, we're lost!

  • Grimly, Tom and Becky wandered underground.

  • They had almost given up, when they made

  • a turn in the passageway and then,

  • Look! A light. There's the entrance.

  • We're safe!

  • Later on, Tom told the townspeople

  • about the cave.

  • They were sure Injun Joe would return

  • to get his treasure.

  • So, they set up a guard and waited.

  • One day, he returned and was caught.

  • I give up. I go, peaceful.

  • Tom had help catch Injun Joe,

  • so he was a hero.

  • And he had his share of the treasure, too.

  • But all the money in the world

  • couldn't keep him out of trouble,

  • nor keep him from having more adventures.
