An animated series based on the popular European comics. Tintin, a young Belgian reporter, gets involved in various mysteries and adventures with his dog Snowy, his friends Captain Haddock and Professor Calculus, and the bumbling detectives, Thomson and Thompson.

"Tintin in the Land of the Soviets", "Tintin in the Congo" and "Tintin and the Alpha Art" were the only books to not be given episode adoptions. "Land of the Soviets" book wasn't redrawn to resemble the other books and was highly discriminating for the country of Russia. "The Congo" book had racial issues and animal cruelty. Finally "The Alpha Art" book was the only one to be incomplete due to the death of Herge. See more »
I can't imagine Tintin or any other characters from the Tintin books played by actors, I just think it would botch up the characters. I can only imagine them either as comic book characters or cartoon characters. This Tintin cartoon series is as close as you could possibly get to the Tintin comic books. The characters all look and sound exactly as they do in the comic books. Each episode of the Tintin cartoon (either one or two part episodes) has basically the same story as in each of the Tintin books. Not just the same story, the same characters the same settings even some of the same quotes. I've enjoyed the Tintin cartoon
series as well as the Tintin books ever since I was a child. Tintin is basically meant for children but a number of adults like Tintin as well. Some episodes of the Tintin cartoon have been available on video but I wish all the entire series was available on DVD.
For those who aren't familiar with Tintin, the main characters in the Tintin saga isn't just Tintin the intrepid reporter and adventurer and his clever little dog Snowy. Tintin has friends who are often with him on his adventures. They
include Captain Haddock the grumpy sailor, Professor Cusburt Calculous a
genius scientist but at the same time a rather stupid person, and Thompson and Thomson the clumsy detective twins.
Captain Haddock is a rather bad tempered seaman, most likely because he
drinks too much whiskey. He often uses exclamations like "Blistering
Barnacles!" or "Thundering Typhoons!" or if he was really outraged or amazed
he would say "Billions of blistering blue barnacles!" or "Ten thousand
Professor Calculous is an amazing inventor. He's invented some amazing
things for example a "shark-proof submarine", a drug which makes alcoholic
drinks taste disgusting to cure alcoholic addicted people and a rocket ship to travel to the moon. But he's also rather stupid because he's deaf and always
miss hears what people say. He also ignores non-verbal communication and
pretends that he doesn't understand how angry Captain Haddock is which really drives him mad.
Thompson and Thomson or "the Thompson's" as they're usually called are both
rather stupid detectives and often have clumsy accidents. One of the
Thompson's is often saying "to be precise" correcting the other Thompson and
since they're identical twins and always wear the same clothing you've no idea which Thompson it is. They think they're the worlds best detectives but Tintin always proves to be a much better detective then they'll ever be.
So the the Tintin saga is more than just great adventure and detective stories for children but also a combination of rather humorous characters which will delight audiences of all ages.
