Well, unless I'm misremembering, that's perfectly understandable. Who 
can forget Topsy and Little Eva getting lost in the cave? Or Injun Joe 
and Simon Legree teaming up to break bad? Or Pap Finn and Augustine St

Phelps trying to tell Tom Sawyer and Uncle Tom apart? Or Little Eva's 
disappointment as she ascends to Heaven after having proclaimed "All 
right, then, I'll go to Hell."?
