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 »
All episode aspect ratio were "pan & scan" to 1.78:1 for some DVD/Blu-ray editions and digital platforms. See more »
Probably the best screen adaption of Belgium's most famous reporter, Adventures of Tintin stays faithful to the spirit and stories of original comics. The stories themselves make for brilliant adventures whether it's finding buried treasure, going to the Moon or venturing to a far off land.
The animation is also of very good quality and considering that it was made on a TV budget back in 1991 is actually quite ahead of it's time, for example 'Explorers on the Moon' has one of the earliest of 3D cartoon animation. These shows will appeal to all ages and everyone is bound to have a favourite out of the various crazy characters, whether it's old sea dog Captain Haddock, the brilliant but hard of hearing Professor Calculus or even Tintin himself (not forgetting Snowy).
