Tom Sawyer is very likely one of the pearl of the Nippon Animation Studio. This studio is mainly known for the “World Masterpiece Theater”: under this label, there are many animes which are all based on a classic western novel.
In this case, the anime takes its source from the classic 19th century novel of the American writer Mark Twain/Sam Clemens. in the same vein than others 80s animes, it was widely broadcast on many European TV channels (Germany, Netherlands, Italy, Switzerland, France, Spain…) with a significant success: millions of kids have watched it at that time…I was one of them ;-)

-------------------- Review in English & Español ---------------------------------

A beautiful rural place next to a beautiful river, full of everything that the rural part of the United States can offer, in the end, and more importantly, the joviality of the children willing to Adventure, that's what brings to my the expression of this beautiful series, based on the famous book, "The Adventures of Tom Sawyer".

The immense love and respect towards the original work, gives a clear impression of the remarkable effort behind, to carry out one of the best adaptations of such work. With a sweetness that, little by little, comes to the spectator.
