Initially, Huck thought the two men were harmless entertainment. He also felt their was a certain amount of cleverness to their crazy con-jobs. By chapter 24, Huck is realizing that these men are buffoons. They use people and actually cause damage and ill-will. Huck loses any respect that he might have had for them.

In particular, the Duke and King print up phoney leaflets to get Jim captured. They also desecrate a church with their crazy play and con-job.
