The Adventures of Mark Twain

This 1985 production from the great Will Vinton Studios was billed as "The First Full-Length Theatrical Film in The Magic Claymation!" but it might also be the strangest damn thing ever smuggled into movie theaters in the guise of children's entertainment. Ever. It's a bizarre fantasy wherein characters created by the beloved American humorist and author tag along with their creator on an airship to chase down Haley's Comet.

Notably, the film has an intriguing focus of Twain's often-overlooked works of religious satire, including adaptations of The Diary of Adam & Eve and Captain Stormfield's Visit to Heaven. But the insane showstopper is the notoriously creepy Mysterious Stranger sequence; in which Tom Sawyer, Huck Finn and Becky Thatcher encounter an angel... named Satan.
