DVD Review: ‘The Adventures of Tintin: Season One’ Lacks Excitement, Extras

17 November 2011 5:18 AM, PST | | See recent news »

Chicago – For fans of comic strip legend Georges “Hergé” Rémi’s celebrated investigative reporter and trusty canine sidekick, director Stéphanie Bernasconi’s short-lived TV series from the early ’90s represented the ideal adaptation of the Belgian author’s work. Unlike Belvision’s series of the late ’50s and early ’60s, Bernasconi stuck to the original design, structure and spirit of Rémi’s internationally beloved books.

Yet for American audiences unfamiliar with Tintinology, it’s doubtful this low-key French-Canadian co-production will get their pulses pounding and minds enticed for Steven Spielberg’s big screen version, which has already made a sizable splash overseas. The show is an ideal fit for youngsters—it has a gentle spirit and remains upbeat even during cliffhanger episodes, but still has enough tangible danger to excite kids. Older viewers, however, are guaranteed to find this show a dull, blandly animated babysitter.

DVD Rating: 2.5/5.0
