Unfortunately, I couldn't find a trailer. But the IDMB is very informative ;)

I love this movie  :fiver The characters are amazing, the story is great, the soundtrack is fantastic (had to buy the CD - and I love it :kehaar )

Injurin' Joe is a real cool villain (musical part by Hank Williams Jr.!!)

Everyone, who doesn't hate Mark Twain should watch the movie (and listen to the soundtrack)!

Man, I LOVE this movie... from its characters to its musical numbers... it just hits a note with me. And I don't know why so many "reviewers" try to tear it apart, the movie has some flaws, but it is actually one of the best animated films THAT I HAVE EVER SEEN.

You say it, man! And you must always keep in mind, that this wasn't produced for cinema.

The whole telling was amazing. You think, the movie is finished and the it goes to the caves. And I found it pretty brutal for a children movie

Ok, the other day I was re-visiting this classic and I had my mind blown up by it. You see... I was watching the "One Dream" segment (which is really damn good, by the way) and I realized for the first time that the animators chose to have Becky casting her shadow over the surface of the lake while she was skipping on rocks across it... can you even do that? I mean, in real life, can you have your shadow being seen on the surface of any water body? It would seem to me that the light needed to produce the reflection of your being in the surface would be "eaten" by the shadow (thus, making reflection impossible).

I know I'm over-thinking this, but I have asked this to five people and no-one has come with an answer yet. My head freaking hurts xD
