Did You Know?


At the beginning of the episode there is a montage with various newspaper headlines, including "Crusader cop busts out". This is a nod/homage to the movie The Untouchables (1987), also set in Chicago during the Prohibition era. See more »


While talking to Al Capone, Bobby Smiles suddenly gains a moustache in close-up - his whole upper lip is coloured black. See more »

Tintin at the speed of light
30 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

Tintin in America is the last episode in the ADVENTURES OF TINTIN TV series. This was an early 1990s TV show that aimed to be closer to the spirit of the original comics than earlier adaptations of the work. Most of the episodes were two-parters whereas Tintin in America condenses the tale down to just one which means that it's an incredibly fast-paced story that barely pauses for breath.

Tintin fans will love it, of course. There's no supporting cast here, just Tintin and Snowy in Chicago and battling with 1930s-era hoodlums. The action jumps from one scene to the next with incredible speed, tons of plot twists, and lots of adventure and derring do. I lost count of how many times Tintin escapes death here. Although I would have preferred to watch a subtitled version, the English dubbing is okay and the story is pleasingly old-fashioned.
