Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_1'); })The Adventures of Tintin, originally titled The Adventures of Tintin and Snowy, is a seminal Belgian comic series and has had considerable influence on the development of graphic narratives in Europe and around the world.Briefly, Tintin was invented by Georges Remi (AKA Hergé, from his initials backwards, R.G., spelt phonetically in French) as a cartoon character for Le Petit Vingtième, the children's supplement to Le Vingtième Siècle (The Twentieth Century), a conservative, Catholic newspaper in Belgium. The character was developed from Totor, a boy scout character Hergé had previously drawn for Le Boy-Scout Belge. When the German occupation ended the publication of Le Vingtième Siècle, the feature moved to the Brussels daily Le Soir, where it became a daily newspaper strip until the Liberation in 1944. After World War II Tintin appeared in the new weekly comic magazine Tintin. The series ran from 1929 to 1976; the incomplete Tintin and Alph-Art was released in 1986 after Hergé's death.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_2'); })Most of the adventures concerned the (eternally) young hero investigating some event or trying to do someone a good turn and, as a result, falling into adventure. The adventures range from thwarting criminals to treasure hunts, from spy stories to a voyage to the moon.The real world frequently impinges upon the stories, with many identifiable events from Real Life being presented with only a few slight changes of name, for example the Grand Chapo (real life, Gran Chaco) war in The Broken Ear, and the Second Sino-Japanese War in The Blue Lotus. World War II was hinted at less as Belgium was occupied by Nazi Germany. In this period, Hergé's stories are fanciful high-adventure yarns with no reference to war at allnote There are infamous antisemitic caricatures in The Shooting Star however. The newspaper Le Soir in which Hergé first published the work was headed by Nazi sympathizers during the Occupation of Belgium.Advertisement:propertag.cmd.push(function() { proper_display('tvtropes_mobile_ad_3'); })The story for Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade was adapted from a Tintin script Steven Spielberg was writing.There were two animated series: A 1960s series produced by Télé-Hachette and Belvision. The Adventures of Tintin, a 1990s French-Canadian-Belgian series coproduced by Ellipse and Nelvana...four animated films...: The Crab With The Golden Claws (1947), Belgian film made in Stop Motion. Tintin and the Sun Temple (1969), by Belvision and made from the combined storyline of The Seven Crystal Balls and Prisoners of the Sun. Tintin and the Lake of Sharks (1972), by Belvision with an original storyline by Greg, with Hergé merely supervising. The Adventures of Tintin (2011), Motion Capture CGI animated movie by Peter Jackson's WETA Digital and directed by Steven Spielberg. It was intended to grow to a film series but the buzz has gone quiet for a while....two live-action films: Tintin and the Golden Fleece (1961), with an original storyline. Starred Jean-Pierre Talbot as Tintin and Georges Wilson as Captain Haddock. Tintin and the Blue Oranges (1964), also an original storyline. The plot is based on French poet Paul Eluard's line "Earth is blue like an orange"....as well as:...two radio series by the BBC in 1992-93, a Dutch musical in 2001, a theatre adaptation of Tintin in Tibet in 2007/2008, and a French documentary series Sur les traces de Tintin in 2010, which recaps the stories while mixing comic panels with live-action imagery and providing lots of commentary.A Recap page for the individual stories is under construction here.You can vote for your favourite episode here.

Anyone Can Die: Tintin is notorious for the fact that quite some characters die, usually off screen, but no distinction is made between villains or good characters.

Creator Cameo
 Tintin (Franchise) / int_127fc252
comment
Creator Cameo: Hergé gave himself a cameo in some of the albums. He and co-assistant Edgar P. Jacobs can be seen as reporters at the start of Tintin in the Congo and as military officers at the royal reception in King Ottokar's Sceptre. In the Nelvana animated cartoons series, the animators put a cartoon version of Hergé in the background of every episode. In 2011 film, Hergé has an animated cameo, a little over four minutes into the movie, as a market artist who painted a portrait for Tintin himself. The cameo is voiced by Nathan Meister.

Does This Remind You of Anything?
 Tintin (Franchise) / int_14ed6ab7
comment
Does This Remind You of Anything?: Many of the comics written in The '30s reflected the many political upheavals that the world was going through at the time, giving the general feeling of Gathering Storm leading up to World War II. The political references ended when the Nazis invaded Belgium and the comics were subject to censorship, at which point, they became largely escapist adventure stories. The Broken Ear references the Gran Chaco War. The Blue Lotus provides a thinly-veiled account of the Mukden Incident and the Japanese invasion of Manchuria. King Ottakar's Sceptre has a fascist-sounding group called the Iron Guard planning on overthrowing the government of an Eastern European monarchy. And their leader is called Müsstler. As a later example, San Theodoros, a South American country whose main political officers (e.g. the Bordurian Colonel Sponsz) are all from a European dictatorship led by a man with a mustache and delusions of grandeur. Hmmmmm, where have I seen that before?

Artistic License – Biology
 Tintin (Franchise) / int_18aff462
comment
Artistic License – Biology: While Herge usually did his research, once he made a blatant mistake: Tintin, the captain and Skut are shipwrecked on the ocean, and Tintin suggests that they drink sea water to survive. Yes, Tintin, who usually knows everything. And to make things worse, the captain only objects to the taste, not the fact that drinking salt water would only make them more thirsty. Haddock of all people should know this, due to being an experienced sailor. However, they do refer to the studies Dr. Alain Bombard did on a sea water diet, so it may just be that Science Marches On. In The Broken Ear, Hergé drew the bananas on a banana tree upside-down. In Tintin in Africa a boa snake (which are New World snakes, Africa has pythons) swallows Snowy alive, tail first.

Breaking the Fourth Wall
 Tintin (Franchise) / int_1e7487cd
comment
Breaking the Fourth Wall: Tintin winks at the audience near the end of King Ottokar's Sceptre. The Secret of the Unicorn ends with Tintin telling his fans to read about his next adventure in Red Rackham's Treasure. A lot of what Snowy says counts too, especially at the end of Flight 714, because Snowy is the only one who remembers what happened. The cover of The Castafiore Emerald has Tintin in the foreground, looking directly at the reader, with a smile and a finger to his lips. A bizarre instance occurs in Cigars of the Pharaoh, when Tintin meets Sheikh Patrash Pasha. The Sheikh knew of Tintin by reading of his adventures, and he actually shows Tintin one of the real-world Tintin albums, complete with cover art. In earlier versions of the comic, the Sheikh showed the cover art of Tintin in America, then Tintin in the Congo; modern versions of the comic now show Destination Moon, which came out after the release of Cigars.

Iconic Sequel Character: All of the series' recurring cast except for Tintin and Snowy themselves qualify — the series started with a very Minimalist Cast and only gradually picked up a cast of recurring characters: Thomson and Thompson first appear in the fourth book. Bianca Castafiore first appears in the eighth book, though she doesn't really become a major recurring character until close to the end of the series. Captain Haddock first appears in the ninth book. Professor Calculus doesn't appear until the twelfth book.

Unknown Rival: Corporal Diaz in The Broken Ear begins a vendetta against Tintin and Alcazar, and not only does he do more harm to himself than to them, but half the time, they don't even notice his attempts on their lives. The spy leader who listens to the proceedings during the moon rocket mission in Destination Moon and Explorers On The Moon is a veritable Karma Houdini in the sense that all he does is listen to the operations from his secret base and though his sabotage plan fails, he still manages to get away scot free. None of the cast has any idea of his identity.

comment
Put Down Your Gun and Step Away: Subverted in Land of Black Gold, as Tintin and Haddock both refuse Muller's demand that they put down their guns even though he has Abdullah hostage. Tintin, however, pointed out that Muller would use this tactic to shoot them if they obeyed (which wouldn't be out-of-character for him).

Island of Mystery: He's been to a few: The island of Flight 714 has caves, ancient ruins, ancient ruins in caves, anomalous physical properties and is ultimately a landing site for alien spacecraft. The crashed meteor in The Shooting Star becomes a Mysterious Island with giant plants and insects. The Black Island contains ruins and a mysterious, dangerous beast which turns out to be a gorilla.

Bilingual Bonus: In The Red Sea Sharks, the kidnapped pilgrims argue in authentic Yoruba. The Chinese writing in the backgrounds of The Blue Lotus is authentic (and contains anti-Japanese messages). Brussels dialect slang (Flemish-based "Marrollien") is often used in the names of Herge's invented places and people and for the Bordurian language. In The Castafiore Emerald Calculus names his new breed of white rose after Bianca Castafiore. Her name literally means "White, Chaste Flower".

Tour Guide Detective: Half of the stories have Tintin solving mysteries in a variety of exotic locations; some real, some imaginary (Syldavia, Borduria, San Theodoros). While the earlier volumes feature poorly-researched and stereotypical depictions of the USSR, the Congo and the USA, from The Blue Lotus on these locations are exhaustively researched and stunningly detailed, often depicting genuine locations.

How Unscientific!
 Tintin (Franchise) / int_2b5c636d
comment
How Unscientific!: While most Tintin stories don't feature any sort of supernatural elements, there are a few times this trope pops up. A yeti and floating monks appear in Tintin in Tibet, aliens are present in Flight 714 and an unusual substance found on a meteorite defies physics in The Shooting Star. Both Seven Crystal Balls and Prisoners of the Sun also contain elements that are supposedly magic in origin such as a psychic's vision and a curse, as well as a fireball that appears out of nowhere and vanishes along with an Incan mummy.

Older Than They Look: This applies to Herge's character design, because Tintin doesn't even look old enough to drink, yet he's presumably an adult (his age is never stated). According to the Word of God, he ages from fourteen-ish to seventeen in the course of the series.

During the race to the meteorite, when Tintin is parachuting onto the meteorite, a member of the rival expedition takes out a sniper rifle to shoot him down, only for the horrified captain to push it away and say "Have you gone mad?!"

Good Hair, Evil Hair: Plenty of textbook examples, from Haddock's full beard to Thompson & Thomson's trademark "cop thick mustache", plus a long collection of typical villain-ish hairdos and beards, especially with Borduria where the curvy moustache is very recurrent, to the name of the dictator and the country flag. Averted with Professor Calculus, who is a rare example of good goatee (though a bushy one).

Outdated Outfit: The Thompsons have tried a few times to blend in when investigating in a foreign country... but their outfits were often too "folkloric", and on at least one occasion, the national dress of the wrong country. Far from blending in, they've been known to attract crowds come to laugh at them. Nowhere more hilarious than in The Blue Lotus, where they come wearing 17th century Manchu era clothes, down to the pigtails and fans! The result... Tintin's own plus-fours count, or maybe not since they're similar to the elastic-cuffed joggers in style for teenage boys and young men at this writing (2018).

Tintin and Haddock. The former is a neat, organized teenaged/young adult, chaste hero and morally upright. The latter is a bad-tempered, middle aged sailor, an alcoholic (while not always drunk, he's incapable of drinking water or non-alcoholic drinks), prone to spouting (made up) profanities at the slightest provocation.

Artistic License – Astronomy: Hergé was well aware that the space suits in Destination Moon and Explorers On The Moon would require helmets much like the astronauts we see today, but then the readers wouldn't be able to tell who was Haddock and who was Tintin.

Marshal Kûrvi-Tasch, the dictator of Borduria. Being the ultimate higher-up of such villains as Colonel Sponsz, he could be considered the real Big Bad of The Calculus Affair, Tintin and the Picaros and possibly the Moon booksnote  The ruler of Borduria at the time of "King Ottokar's Sceptre" is not named, but seems unlikely to be Kûrvi-Tasch, as the Bordurian aircraft Tintin steals has different markings which do not include the moustache that became omnipresent in "The Calculus Affair". Possibly Kûrvi-Tasch ousted his predecessor after the failure of the plot to take over Syldavia in "Sceptre". , but never throws in a personal appearance — all we ever see of him is the occasional statue.

Sliding Scale of Idealism vs. Cynicism: Somewhere in the middle but leaning more towards the idealistic end. This is reflected in the characters. Generally speaking, Tintin is the idealist, modern Knight in Shining Armor, while Haddock is less trusting, more cynical, and often expresses his (eternally frustrated) wish to drop the heroics to peacefully enjoy his retirement.

Noodle Incident: How Captain Haddock got to Khemed in time. The book lining papers of the hardcover albums show a wall of framed portraits of characters from the series, most of which can easily be associated with one adventure or other. Two make you wonder how and in what context they came to be: A semi-cubist chiaroscuro portrait of Captain Haddock (perhaps alluding to the unfinished Alph-Art?) and a picture of the Captain in a guardsman's uniform complete with bearskin cap. The Captain's guard uniform with shako is a costume he wore during his attempt to restore Calculus' memory in Destination Moon. A full-length view would show the "horse" he wore around his waist.

Deus ex Machina: All the time, though much more predominant in the first three books than later on, as they were defined by their episodic format and reliance on CliffHangers. This ranges from jumping off of a cliff to find a ledge to having the mooks mistakenly use knockout gas instead of poison gas. Hergé used to say "I was often thinking all the week about the way I could get Tintin out of the trap I had thrown him into on the previous Wednesday".

Mistaken for Thief: In "The Castafiore Emerald", Castafiore's precious emerald disappears, as do a pair of gold scissors. Initially, the Thompsons suspect her two servants and Professor Calculus, but then all their suspicions go towards a group of nomads camping nearby. It doesn't help that Miarca, a nomad girl, has the scissors in her possession. In reality, it was a magpie that stole both items.

Characterization Marches On
 Tintin (Franchise) / int_479f9ad0
comment
Characterization Marches On: The Thompson and Thomson duo provided a bit of slapstick but weren't comedically incompetent in their first appearance in Cigars of the Pharaoh, later on, they become the main source of slapstick and visual humour in the series. Tintin himself was very cruel to animals and condescending to natives in his earliest adventures, in contrast to his more humane attitude in the rest of the series.

Screaming Woman
 Tintin (Franchise) / int_48309ad4
comment
Screaming Woman: Though not exactly screaming, Bianca Castafiore's opera singing has the effect of scaring off humans and animals because it is so loud and able to shatter glass. Although Bianca Castafiore's singing voice is remarkably loud, there's very few occasion that actually features actual glass-shattering effect in-universe. When Tintin met her for the first time, he jokingly said to himself that it was lucky that the automobile they were riding had safety glass (so that it didn't break because of her voice). 2011 film showed said actual glass-shattering effect, not only as an inside joke, but also an important plot point.

Getting Crap Past the Radar
 Tintin (Franchise) / int_4b86a724
comment
Getting Crap Past the Radar: In 1934 Hergé drew a story named The Blue Lotus in which Tintin travels to China. Hergé's friend, a Chinese foreign exchange student named Zhang Chong Ren told him a lot about Chinese culture and society, including the then current situation in Asia, where Japan had military occupied China. He also wrote all the Chinese signs, billboards, ideograms and texts seen in the backgrounds. As a Bilingual Bonus only Chinese people could read these. This also might explain why the book wasn't censored from the start because many of these texts are anti-Japanese slogans, like for instance: Boycot Japanese products, Abolish unfair treaties and Down with Imperialism. Upon realising the anti-Japanese tone of the story, Japan's diplomats stationed in Belgium issued an official complaint and threatened to take their complaint to the Permanent Court of International Justice at The Hague. Zhang congratulated Hergé, stating that it would only further expose the actions of Japan in China to further international scrutiny and would make Hergé "world-famous".

comment
Early Installment Weirdness: In Tintin and the Land of the Soviets Tintin has no quiff for the first few pages. His iconic hairstyle only gets into place after a speedy car chase. Also, Snowy has a strange beard. It's also the only album in which Tintin is seen writing journalistic paperwork, though he never seems to post it to his newspaper, because that same night he is attacked in his hotel room and has to flee, without taking all those pages along with him. Snowy can talk and Tintin can understand him in Tintin in the Land of Soviets, Tintin in the Congo and Tintin in America. In the English-speaking world Tintin in America was the only one of the three available in print, and Snowy and Tintin talking to each other only happens in a few panels, making it seem all the more out of place. The first three Tintin stories, Tintin in The Land Of The Soviets, Tintin in the Congo, and Tintin in America all have a Random Events Plot and are full of naïve stereotypical ideas about the countries and people Tintin visits. They were all drawn without any documentation or research. Tintin In The Land Of The Soviets and Tintin in the Congo are de facto conservative Catholic propaganda pieces, drawn under commission of Hergé's newspaper boss. The Thompsons are quite competent in their first appearance in Cigars of the Pharaoh. Their comedic ineptitude seems to set in as soon as they go over to Tintin's side. Also, to readers of the albums after The Black Island, it may seem bizarre that the duo actually tries to arrest Tintin in Cigars of the Pharaoh, The Blue Lotus and The Black Island.

The Caligula
 Tintin (Franchise) / int_52aa0c4a
comment
The Caligula: In his first appearance, General Alcazar, the military dictator of San Theodoros, has a shade of this, though mostly he is more of a paranoid Stalin type than a sadist. However, he does indulge in such jokes as throwing a tantrum and shooting a military aide (with blanks, though he did not know that) for beating him at chess. He mellows considerably in later appearances, at least in his interactions with Tintin, but sometimes has throwbacks to this, firing weapons in the air and throwing around reckless death threats. These are taken all the more seriously by subordinates who can't know whether he will carry them out or not, even if Tintin ignores them as mere histrionics. And he remains a megalomaniac to the very end, renaming the capital of his country Alcazaropolis once he seizes power in Tintin and the Picaros.

 Tintin (Franchise) / int_58154a14
comment
Bribe Backfire: Attempts to bribe Tintin seem to be a very efficient way to make him angry, as several villains have found out over the course of his adventures. Most memorably, Mitsuhirato once approached him while he was about to be executed and offered him a way out if he would join the Japanese secret services. Tintin seemed half-amused half-interested at first, but the moment money was added to the deal, he beat the crap out of the Japanese spy and threw him out of the cell.

Police Are Useless: Thomson and Thompson are the two standout examples. The chief of police in Temple of the Sun, although it's more a case of his being unable to do anything against the Inca. Dawson in The Blue Lotus is useless, corrupt and racist.

Mistaken for Badass: Not that they aren't, but in a deadly game of cat and mouse between the protagonists' ship and a submarine in The Red Sea Sharks, Captain Haddock accidentally gets the ship stuck going astern (backwards). When this results in a torpedo barely missing the ship, the villains marvel at the captain's tactical genius.

Catchphrase Insult

comment
Catchphrase Insult: More than one specific insult, Haddock is a walking encyclopaedia of insults, especially if they're Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness type, becoming integral part of the character (Haddock without throwing insults isn't Haddock at all). Out of Haddock's many, many insults he uses, the most frequently-used one seems to be "Bashi-bazouk". He made that one upnote Bashi-Bazouks were a corps of particularly undisciplined ottoman mercenaries, just like most of his other colourful curses.

Nearly Normal Animal: Snowy. He seems able to speak to Tintin in the very first books, but after that he mostly behaves like an extremely clever animal: he has inner, intelligible thoughts (for the reader), and understands enough of what is going on around him to be of invaluable help to Tintin every time. He is however not above stealing food whenever the occasion presents, occasionally misunderstands what Tintin wants, and can't resist a good bone (or spilled whiskey. Seriously, that doggo was almost as big a lush as Haddock) even when given a particularly important mission. He also likes to chase cats and other animals even when Tintin asked him to follow a trail.

comment
Heel–Face Turn: The Thompsons start out as Tintin's enemies (Cigars of the Pharaoh), but eventually form a friendship with him. Dr. Krollspell in Flight 714. Skut in The Red Sea Sharks. Pablo in The Broken Ear. He turns evil again by the time of Tintin and the Picaros. This is played with in the case of Nestor: he initially helps the bad guys, but only because he believes that Tintin himself is the actual villain. Rastapopoulos is a jerk at the beginning of Cigars of the Pharaoh, but later apologizes and is nice for the rest of the book, although his kind nature is really an act to throw Tintin off the trail. The Incans in Prisoners of the Sun;notably Huascar, who started making the turn far earlier in the book than the rest of them did. The Mole in Explorers on the Moon. Ranko the Gorilla in The Black Island is a nonhuman example.

Later Tintin ventures underwater in his seadiving suit and has to face a shark who swallows a valuable chest and then the rum bottle that Tintin had been using as a Improvised Weapon. Likewise, the Lake of Sharks animated movie (although this wasn't written by Hergé) only features one actual shark, which is seen in an aquarium tank at the very beginning of the movie (the lake's "sharks" are the bandits).

A statue of Kûrvi-Tasch in uniform appears in front of a government building, in which he wears a moustache similar to Joseph Stalin's and gives a Nazi-like salute.

These happen constantly. A classic example occurs in Cigars of the Pharaoh: as it turns out, the gang which Tintin has been tracking down is based in India. At this stage, Tintin has not had any inkling of an Indian connection, but when he makes his escape by plane from an Arabian town, he fortuitously chooses to fly in that direction, and crash-lands right outside the town where they have their headquarters. In India.

Punny Name: Almost too many to list, but notable examples include: Captain Haddock (a species of fish) Jolyon Wagg => Séraphin Lampion (a lampion is a cheap lamp made of paper and a candle given at fairs) Kûrvi-Tasch (curvy 'stache) => Plekszy-Gladz (plexiglas) Mr. Cutts the Butcher ; his original name is "Sanzot", which is read exactly like the French phrase "sans os" ("boneless") Professor Calculus Mr. Bolt the Builder Lazlo Carreidas the millionaire (four aces in your hand) Many names and places are in fact bastardizations of the Marol dialect, a Flemish dialect spoken in Brussels. Hergé's mother spoke it and he remembered many phrases and expressions he used for his fictional foreigners. The Native Amazonians speak it in The Broken Ear and Tintin and the Picaros, as do the Syldavians and Bordurians. Sheik Bab El Ehr ' name, for instance is a pun on babbeler (talkative person).

Another catchphrase of theirs is for one of them to say they have to be secretive about what they're currently investigating ("Mum's the word"), the other to repeat it but say "Dumb's the word", instead, and then for them to inadvertently let slip what it is to Tintin anyway in an I'll Never Tell You What I'm Telling You! fashion.

Culture Equals Costume: The Thompsons' 'disguises', are the worst possible mismatches that can ever be considered for camouflage, since they are in the habit of travelling through countries in ludicrously outdated/stereotypical traditional costumes. Nowhere more hilarious than The Blue Lotus, where they come wearing 17th century Manchu era clothes, complete with pigtails and fans! In Destination: Moon, they even wear costumes from the wrong country:

The Savage Indian: Played straight in Tintin in America where the Native Americans are depicted as scalp crazy buffoons. In the same story, however, they are forced to leave their land when oil is found. Subverted trope in Prisoners Of The Sun, where the Incas are portrayed as clever and determined antagonists, but still able to be open for reason and forgiveness... once tricked with fake divine accomplishments.

Clingy MacGuffin: The piece of sticking plaster in The Calculus Affair. When Captain Haddock tosses it off, it sticks to someone else, who in turn shakes it off. And so it goes all over the bus, before coming to the Captain's cap. It then follows him aboard the plane, eventually makes its way to the cockpit (causing the pilots to momentarily lose control), lands on the Captain again by the end of the flight, is thrown away at the police station, only to return yet again on the captain's clothes in the hotel room!!

Real Life Writes the Plot: Several events in the albums were directly inspired by major events of the 20th century, including the Japanese occupation of China in the 1930s and the Cold War. Other events were references to things that happened in Hergé's private life, such as his friendship with a Chinese foreign exchange student named Chang (Tchang in The Blue Lotus) and a repair man who always promised to come over and fix his broken stair case, but never did (The Castafiore Emerald).

Amusing Injuries: A large portion of the series' humor comes from Captain Haddock tripping or hitting his head. This is lampshaded in Destination Moon. Thomson and Thompson are also rather prone to these, particularly where stairs are involved.

This is reflected in the characters. Generally speaking, Tintin is the idealist, modern Knight in Shining Armor, while Haddock is less trusting, more cynical, and often expresses his (eternally frustrated) wish to drop the heroics to peacefully enjoy his retirement.

Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: While deputising for the ill General Alcazar in The Broken Ear, Tintin turns down an offer from an American oil company on the grounds that it would require starting a war with a neighboring country. Later, after Alcazar turns on him, Tintin flees to the country in question using a stolen armored car... and ends up causing the war with that country, after they mistake it for an act of aggression by Alcazar's government. (However, Alcazar was shown to be sympathetic to the emissary from the oil company, suggesting that the war would soon have broken out anyway.)

In his first appearance, General Alcazar, the military dictator of San Theodoros, has a shade of this, though mostly he is more of a paranoid Stalin type than a sadist. However, he does indulge in such jokes as throwing a tantrum and shooting a military aide (with blanks, though he did not know that) for beating him at chess.

Deconstruction
 Tintin (Franchise) / int_8ae880f7
comment
Deconstruction: The Castafiore Emerald, Flight 714, and Tintin and the Picaros are deconstructions of the series in general. The Castafiore Emerald is an intentional Random Events Plot where Tintin and Haddock stay at Marlinspike Hall for nearly the entirety of the story. It's full of anticlimaxes such as how Haddock's attempt to escape Castafiore by going to Italy is foiled by an accident, the Roma community plight is immediately solved by Haddock’s generosity, Haddock never has the chance to make An Aesop about tolerance because of little distractions and the emerald’s thief turned to be a harmless magpie. Flight 714 has Tintin and Haddock involved by a Contrived Coincidence into a plot to blackmail a millionaire, recurring villains Rastapopoulus and Allan suffer intentional Villain Decay by being depicted as ridiculous and stupid, all of them would have died in an eruption but are saved by aliens, and only Snowy remembers how they were rescued. For everyone else, it was a "Shaggy Dog" Story. (However, in the Nelvana version of the story, Snowy forgets it like everyone else.) Tintin and the Picaros: Tintin, the Gentleman Adventurer, no longer enjoys adventures and refuses the call for some days with almost all the supporting cast in San Theodoros, Haddock cannot drink alcohol, and the worst is that Tintin, instead of his plus fours pants, now wears jeans! The second to last panel shows that San Theodoros has had a Full-Circle Revolution and it was all a "Shaggy Dog" Story. Tintin and the Alph-Art was planned as a Reconstruction to counter the three exemples above, but due to Author Existence Failure...

One-Hour Work Week: Tintin is supposedly a journalist. This is rarely mentioned, and the only time he is ever seen writing an article or explicitly doing actual journalism is in Tintin in the Land of the Soviets. See Literary Agent Hypothesis above, though.

Ultimate Job Security: Thomson and Thompson. Their incompetence varies from "harmless and amusing" to "screwing up big time" (especially in the Moon arc). Nobody but Captain Haddock seems to realize they are the worst detectives in the galaxy (Tintin seems to, but never says it directly), and they are consistently given important cases all over the world.

Lawyer-Friendly Cameo: Al Capone appears in person (the only person to do so), and Hergé has several Creator Cameos (particularly in the Animated Adaptation. Numerous other real people appear thinly disguised (such as Jacques Bergier in Flight 714) or in the background. Other well-known thinly disguised real life persons are gun-runner Henry de Monfreid (who saves Tintin in The Cigars of the Pharaoh) and arms dealer Sir Basil Zaharoff (here called Bazaroff), who sells guns to both sides in The Broken Ear.

Always Identical Twins
 Tintin (Franchise) / int_8f00b02a
comment
Always Identical Twins: A strange example are Thompson and Thomson who, apart from their mustaches, look exactly like twins. They dress, act and move the same and often finish each others' sentences. They also appear to live in the same house and even in the same bedroom! Still the linguistic difference in the spelling of their name suggest they are not related to each other at all. Furthermore, in the original French, they were known as Dupont & Dupond, which are even pronounced identically - this was kept up at least to some extent in most translations, including English, where they are known as Thompson and Thomson. A better example are Alfred and Hector Alembick in King Ottocar's Sceptre, who are a good and evil twin, looking exactly alike, save for the fact that the good one smokes and is far-sighted.

National Stereotypes
 Tintin (Franchise) / int_8f7f2c6a
comment
National Stereotypes: The comic strip has often been accused of this, though it was Fair for Its Day and most of the time, foreigners are both good and bad characters. Hergé also subverted these stereotypes, like in The Blue Lotus where stereotypes about Chinese people are debunked and The Castafiore Emerald in which prejudices about the Roma people turn out to be false.

Odd Couple: Tintin and Haddock. The former is a neat, organized teenaged/young adult, chaste hero and morally upright. The latter is a bad-tempered, middle aged sailor, an alcoholic (while not always drunk, he's incapable of drinking water or non-alcoholic drinks), prone to spouting (made up) profanities at the slightest provocation. They Fight Crime!! General Alcazar and Peggy Alcazar. The former is a South American revolutionary with a long string of victories followed by defeats. The latter is a domineering, all-American virago with haircurlers. They're married.

Superstitious Sailors: Captain Haddock suddenly gets cold feet before setting out to find the wreck of the Unicorn, citing that it's unlucky (having previously broken a mirror). Fortunately, the Thom(p)sons drop by to deliver an accidental Inspirational Insult.

Bowdlerization
 Tintin (Franchise) / int_a49914aa
comment
Bowdlerization: Despite that the Nelvana series kept many of the same plotlines from the comics, a few minor details were kept around, while still keeping true to the original story: All instances of blackface were removed from the Nelvana series - the instance in Broken Ear wherein Tintin dresses as a black crew member was replaced with Tintin wearing the same wig, glasses and fake mustache getup from The Calculus Affair. In order to fit the time, the newspaper clipping at the end of The Red Sea Sharks was removed. As a result, this meant that the cargo hold full of African Muslims were visually identical, but their backstory was changed to them being refugees attempting to seek asylum in America. In some ways, this makes it even more dastardly and it remains plausible. The redrawings also bowdlerized many bits that even Hergé thought were a bit unfortunate. The Belvision adaptation removed Captain Haddock's alcoholic tendencies, and made him a coffee drinker instead.

Mood Whiplash: Done deliberately a few times. For example, in "Land of Black Gold", Dr Muller makes a dramatic "they'll never take me alive" comment, turns the gun he took from Abdullah on himself - cut to Tintin looking horrified and shouting "Don't do it" - then back to Muller whose face is now covered in ink, Abdullah's gun turning out to be a realistic-looking water pistol for one of his pranks.

I Want My Jetpack: The space hardware used on the Moon mission is in many ways more advanced than any equipment that has ever been taken to space in Real Life: a nuclear fission-powered rocket engine that provides constant acceleration (and deceleration) at 1 G for the entire trip, hard-shelled spacesuits, and a pressurized three-person tank. The Carreidas 160 seen in Flight 714 is a supersonic private jet with variable-geometry wings, like a Concorde crossed with an F-14.

Celibate Hero: Tintin has no relationships because was created as a role model for Catholic Boy Scouts. In fact, Snowy (in the original Belgian) is named Milou, which was the name of a well-endowed girl with whom Hergé went to school (and, according to some sources, dated). Since he obviously couldn't give Tintin a girlfriend because of the awkward questions that it may raise, Milou became a male dog.

The spy leader who listens to the proceedings during the moon rocket mission in Destination Moon and Explorers On The Moon is a veritable Karma Houdini in the sense that all he does is listen to the operations from his secret base and though his sabotage plan fails, he still manages to get away scot free. None of the cast has any idea of his identity.

Brother Chuck: King Muskar XII of Syldavia, who is inexplicably absent from later stories involving that country, even when his appearance would be expected (Destination Moon and/or Explorers on the Moon) or useful (The Calculus Affair). This is possibly a reflection of Real Life politics in the Balkans before and after WWII: Former monarchies were replaced with republican (in practice: communist) governments. (Syldavia does not seem to have a communist government in its later appearances, though). The Maharajah of Gaipajama never shows up nor is referred to again after The Blue Lotus.

Red Scare: Tintin in the Land of the Soviets (most notable example, however Hergé thought it was so poorly written you could barely tell this.) This trope re-emerges (albeit very subtly) in Tintin in Tibet, where Tintin's friends from The Blue Lotus inexplicably no longer live in Shanghai (which had become part of a communist state between the events of the two books), but in Hong Kong.

Off-Model: A big problem with the Belvision animated cartoon series; the animation director apparently took a lot of liberties with Hergé's character designs, often giving the characters a bizarre and overly cute look. Some of the animators worked against this, however, meaning that, occasionally, you see sequences that look almost as if they could be taken directly from the books. Fortunately, Tintin and the Sun Temple and Tintin and the Lake of Sharks (which both had higher budgets and a better director) don't suffer this problem nearly as badly.

Catchphrase
 Tintin (Franchise) / int_b01abe4f
comment
Catchphrase: There are lots of them Tintin would often say "This time I'm done for" or "I never thought I would see you [Snowy] again". In the original French, Captain Haddock's catchphrases were "Tonnerre de Brest!" and "Mille sabords!" (literally, "Thunder of Brest!"note Brest is a coastal city near the westernmost edge of mainland France. The "thunder" likely refers to the sound of the cannons on the historical ramparts and "A thousand portholes!"). In the Dutch translations, Captain Haddock's full catchphrase was "Honderdduizend bommen en granaten!" (literally, "A hundred thousand bombs and grenades!"). Even the German one can be re-translated nicely into Hundred thousand howling hounds of hell! And in each translation, the phrase can be extended indefinitely, giving rise to such beauties as "Billions of bilious blue boiled and barbecued barnacles!" or "Mille milliards de mille millions de mille sabords!" The Thompsons' catchphrase is for one of them to state something and then the other to say "To be precise:" and repeat it, but often not quite get it right. For example: Another catchphrase of theirs is for one of them to say they have to be secretive about what they're currently investigating ("Mum's the word"), the other to repeat it but say "Dumb's the word", instead, and then for them to inadvertently let slip what it is to Tintin anyway in an I'll Never Tell You What I'm Telling You! fashion. In the original French, Calculus is known for his use of "sapristi!" and "saperlipopette!"

Retcon: Done a few times with the redrawn versions of the color stories. For instance, the Thompsons are inserted into the first panel of Tintin in the Congo, while a previously anonymous smuggler is turned into Allan in Cigars of the Pharaoh. The original version of Land of Black Gold didn't occur in a generic-looking fictional Arabic country, but in British Mandate Palestine. The Belvision cartoon series did this numerous times, inserting characters into stories where they had not yet appeared in the original albums. To wit, Professor Phostle is deleted from The Shooting Star and replaced by Professor Calculus, who had not been introduced yet in the book.

Lantern Jaw of Justice: Subverted by General Alcazar, who has a particularly magnificent case of Perma-Stubble on a prow-like chin, but isn't very heroic or strong-willed (especially once we meet his wife).

Color-Coded Characters: From the book "Red Rackham's treasure" and onwards: Tintin = light blue (even in "Destination Moon", he is one of the only two characters to wear some blue overalls instead of green). Captain Haddock = dark blue (even in "Destination Moon", he is one of the only two characters to wear some blue overalls instead of green). The Thompsons = black (except for when they wear green overalls in "Destination Moon"). Professor Calculus = green.

Tintin and the Picaros: Tintin, the Gentleman Adventurer, no longer enjoys adventures and refuses the call for some days with almost all the supporting cast in San Theodoros, Haddock cannot drink alcohol, and the worst is that Tintin, instead of his plus fours pants, now wears jeans! The second to last panel shows that San Theodoros has had a Full-Circle Revolution and it was all a "Shaggy Dog" Story.

 Tintin (Franchise) / int_c2288824
comment
A Nazi by Any Other Name: While it later became an analogy for Commie Land, pre-war Borduria (King Ottokar's Sceptre) is clearly a fascist dictatorship, right down to using German built Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighter planes. Dr. Müller (The Black Island and others) and Dr. Krollspell (Flight 714) have also been suggested to be Nazis/ex-Nazis due to their rather unethical ways of conducting experiments. Ironically, when the real Nazis occupied Belgium, they banned The Black Island because it was set in Britain, their enemy, while King Ottokar's Sceptre was still allowed, despite having an almost obvious Nazi-analogue.

Science Marches On
 Tintin (Franchise) / int_c309f9d1
comment
Hergé was particularly meticulous in his research. He kept a huge collection of photographs, newspaper articles, and anything else possibly useful in future stories, and so many places and objects in the comic books are real places. For instance, the house of Prof. Calculus' Italian friend in The Calculus Affair is a real house that is still standing to this day. Furthermore, much of the scientific information in the books is accurate, or at least was accurate for the knowledge of the time, some apparent errors being a case of Science Marches On. In a odd case to Science Marching a 180 Degree Turn, one of Hergé's most well known "mistakes" was in depicting ice on the Moon (Explorers on the Moon), but since Indian astronomers have indeed found ice there, we probably owe him an apology.

comment
Badass Bookworm: Although he is a short, wiry reporter without muscles, Tintin is rarely (if ever) bested in a fair fight, even when his enemy is twice his size. He is also an excellent shot. During his visit to America he single-handedly laid waste to crowds. During his visit to India he subdued an attacking tiger and restrained it in a straitjacket despite being caught by surprise. During his visit to Russia he killed a bear with his bare hands. And in China he took on three burly prison guards at once and sent all three of them to the hospital. It has been stated that he has at least a working knowledge of judo and western boxing. Professor Calculus is also a force to be reckoned with when he is enraged, most notably in Flight 714 where Carreidas makes the mistake of arousing his ire and it then takes two men to subdue him. He has practised savate in his youth.

Done a few times with the redrawn versions of the color stories. For instance, the Thompsons are inserted into the first panel of Tintin in the Congo, while a previously anonymous smuggler is turned into Allan in Cigars of the Pharaoh. The original version of Land of Black Gold didn't occur in a generic-looking fictional Arabic country, but in British Mandate Palestine.

Dem Bones: The Thompsons suspect a living skeleton is hanging around in Destination Moon because they saw each other through an X-ray panel and they end up arresting a real (non-living) skeleton in a doctor's office. Much later in Explorers on the Moon, they interrupt Wolff's dramatic interrogation by asking him "vital questions": "The skeleton, Wolff. Was that you?" and "To be precise, were you the Wolff, Skeleton?"

Offscreen Moment of Awesome
 Tintin (Franchise) / int_c5b47b36
comment
Offscreen Moment of Awesome: The helicopter pilots rescuing Tintin and the other people on the raft in Flight 714. Making this even more frustrating, the rescue scene was actually drawn: however, Hergé noticed Flight 714 had two more pages than usual and thus decided to remove the two pages showing the rescue. Spoofed in Land of Black Gold. We never learn what happened to Haddock on his mission or how he arrived in Khemed... other than that it's "simple and complicated" at the same time. The Blue Lotus: As mentioned above, Tintin is imprisoned after accidentally knocking off a guard. Three guards, the smaller of them something like thrice his size, enter the cell to take revenge. Cue a scene with fighting noises followed by a hasty trip to the hospital, where the three said guards lie heavily battered.

Cliffhanger: Lots! Especially during the period when the stories appeared in newspapers. Hergé was a firm proponent of the "suspense en bas de page", stating that each page should end in a cliffhanger. It was later (lovingly) lampooned by humoristic authors of the French/Belgian school.

Shout-Out: In Tintin and the Picaros, masks of Zorro, Asterix, Groucho Marx, Donald Duck, Mickey Mouse and Snoopy can be seen in a festival. In the English dub of the Nelvana version of The Red Sea Sharks, Bianca Castafiore mispronounces Captain Haddock's name as Captain Harlock. Ironic considering the Dub Name Change entry in Harlock. A full page with shout-outs to Tintin in other media can be found here: Referenced By/Tintin. USA is described a similar plutocracy as in Upton Sinclair's The Jungle.

Cerebus Syndrome: The first two Tintin adventures (Tintin in the Land of the Soviets and Tintin in the Congo) are outright comedies where the action is often completely surreal and played for laughs (for instance, Tintin killing a rhino by drilling into its hide and dropping in a stick of dynamite). The third adventure (Tintin in America) was transitional with a lot of off-the-wall comedy still mixing with the plot before the series finally found its familiar mood of realistic action-adventure with Cigars of the Pharaoh. There was still comedy but it was far more down-to-earth and character-driven.

Sigil Spam: The symbol of Kih-Oskh in The Cigars of the Pharaoh is used on cigars and the costumes of the members of the secret organisation. And in The Blue Lotus, Rastapopoulos wears it as a tattoo on his arm. In The Calculus Affair, the symbol of the Bordurian regime are "the whiskers of Kûrvi-Tasch," a stylized representation of the dictator's moustache. It's absolutely all over the country, from flags and official buildings to military rank insignia, hotel lamps and car radiators. This goes as far as written and spoken Bordurian, which uses a circumflex shaped like a curved moustache.

Creator Provincialism: The first two albums, Tintin In The Land Of The Soviets and Tintin in the Congo reference Belgium most directly. Tintin arrives back at the station of Brussels in the first album and in the original version of Tintin in the Congo he teaches the Congolese children about their fatherland Belgium, which was replaced by a simple mathematic lesson in the reprints. The series avoided any direct references to Belgium in other albums, but it still remains the most Belgian of all Belgian Comics with an international success career. The streets and buildings where Tintin lives are clearly located in Brussels. Foreigners wouldn't notice it, but anyone who ever visited Brussels can recognize it. The police officers are also dressed in Belgian and French uniforms. The royal palace of Syldavia in King Ottokar's Sceptre is based on the Belgian palace, and the address on the letter Tintin receives from Chang in Tintin in Tibet is written in Chinese, but reads Brussels when translated. Also, the accents of the Arumbaya Indians in The Broken Ear and Tintin and the Picaros, as well as those of the Syldavians and Bordurians are heavily distorted, but still recognizable versions of the dialect spoken by Flemish people from the Brussels' neighbourhood the Marols. Hergé was a French speaking Brussels' native, but his mother spoke this specific Flemish dialect, so he heard it a lot. Apart from these self-invented languages Hergé also used the dialect for the names of foreign places and characters.

Underling with an F in PR: : In Tintin: The Red Sea Sharks, Captain Haddock finds himself in charge of a cargo ship full of black Muslims. When the villains' buyer (who think Haddock is substituting for the usual captain) comes aboard and starts examining the passenger's muscles and teeth, Haddock angrily tells him the man isn't a slave, and the buyer rebukes Haddock for using the "s" word instead of "coke"* a type of coal and the slavers' codeword throughout the book, in the same way "ebony" (a dark-colored wood) was the euphemism for African slaves in the 19th century in front of witnesses. Haddock goes ballistic, bellowing insults at the fleeing slaver even after he's out of hearing range.

Good Smoking, Evil Smoking: Several recurring villains (Dr. Müller, Allen, etc.) have been seen smoking, usually cigarettes. On the other hand, there's Captain Haddock and his ever-present pipe. And Tintin himself never smokes and regularly turns down cigarettes when he is offered one.

Flight 714 has Tintin and Haddock involved by a Contrived Coincidence into a plot to blackmail a millionaire, recurring villains Rastapopoulus and Allan suffer intentional Villain Decay by being depicted as ridiculous and stupid, all of them would have died in an eruption but are saved by aliens, and only Snowy remembers how they were rescued. For everyone else, it was a "Shaggy Dog" Story. (However, in the Nelvana version of the story, Snowy forgets it like everyone else.)

No Antagonist: Red Rackham's Treasure is more about Tintin and his friends looking for a treasure than them fighting villains. "Tintin in Tibet" has no villains, and in the end, even the supposedly monstrous Yeti is revealed to only be lonely and misunderstood. "The Castafiore Emerald" has people showing off prejudices against gypsies, and a couple of underhanded paparazzi take pictures and write stories without permission. But if you compare it to the villains in other Tintin stories, it is really nothing. And as for the thief, who had stolen the emerald? (It was only a magpie).

Dub Name Change
 Tintin (Franchise) / int_e2c4b927
comment
Dub Name Change: Virtually every translation of the works gives new names to the characters. This was done a lot to preserve Punny Names (and create a few new ones). A full list can be found here. Tintin's name is the same in the original French, but pronounced differently, but is known as Kuifje (lit. 'little quiff') in Dutch and Tim in German. Thompson & Thomson's names are generally real names in the relevant language with a difference of only a letter or two between them. French: Dupond & Dupont. Dutch: Janssen & Jansen. German: Schulze and Schultze. Spanish: Hernandez y Fernandez (also used in Basque). Afrikaans: Uys & Buys. Snowy was originally Milou in French, after an ex-girlfriend of Hergé's, and becomes Struppi in German and Bobbie in Dutch. Calculus's original name is Tournesol, or "Sunflower" — the English translators decided that this sounded silly and gave him a Punny Name instead. He's called Zonnebloem in Dutch, which also means Sunflower. Tournesol's first name Tryphon alliterates with his surname and has long gone out of fashion. This pattern tends to be emulated in most translations, thus it's Cuthbert Calculus in English, Balduin Bienlein in German, Teofilus Tuhatkauno in Finnish. In Dutch it is Trifonius Zonnebloem though. The story Coke En Stock (Coke in Stock) has been translated to Tintin and the Red Sea Sharks in English.

As Long as It Sounds Foreign: Many of the made-up languages like Bordurian and Arumbaya are actually phonetic renditions of a local Belgian patois, completely indecipherable even to some Belgians. This carries over to the English translations, albeit with more understandable phonetics.

Art Evolution: It's especially obvious with the first two, but you can spot some from The Blue Lotus onwards, wherein his art became less caricaturish. Originally this was a gradual change, but readers of the color editions are unlikely to notice much of a difference, because Hergé eventually went back and redrew all the volumes except Soviets.

He Who Must Not Be Seen

He Who Must Not Be Seen: Marshal Kûrvi-Tasch, the dictator of Borduria. Being the ultimate higher-up of such villains as Colonel Sponsz, he could be considered the real Big Bad of The Calculus Affair, Tintin and the Picaros and possibly the Moon booksnote  The ruler of Borduria at the time of "King Ottokar's Sceptre" is not named, but seems unlikely to be Kûrvi-Tasch, as the Bordurian aircraft Tintin steals has different markings which do not include the moustache that became omnipresent in "The Calculus Affair". Possibly Kûrvi-Tasch ousted his predecessor after the failure of the plot to take over Syldavia in "Sceptre". , but never throws in a personal appearance — all we ever see of him is the occasional statue. General Tapioca barely manages to avert this status. Despite being an apparently brutal dictator and the enemy of General Alcazar, he wasn't actually seen in The Broken Ear or The Red Sea Sharks. He finally appeared in person in the last completed book, Tintin and the Picaros.

Insane Equals Violent: Zig-zagged - An important plot point is that the enemies of the drug-smuggling gang from the Cigars of the Pharaoh & Blue Lotus arc are disposed of by poisoning by the Rajijah Juice. Victims of the Rajijah juice aren't typically violent, but rather, total Cloud Cuckoo Lander-types - though two of them are violent: Sarcophagus, who is influenced by a hypnotist, and Didi.

The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything

comment
The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything: Tintin is nominally a reporter, but after Land of the Soviets is never seen to do any actual reporting. The closest is a contemporary advert for the then-upcoming Secret Of The Unicorn, in which Tintin is seen calling his editor to ask for time off and in Tintin and the Black Gold where he interviews the head of a company at the start of the story, yet without taking notes or recording his answers. However, it's been suggested that the comics themselves are Tintin's reports.

Undying Loyalty
 Tintin (Franchise) / int_f16da697
comment
Undying Loyalty: Tintin to his friends in general, and Snowy and Haddock to Tintin in particular. This dynamic is best exemplified in Tintin in Tibet, where Tintin is ready to go across the world face the Hymalayas just on the one small chance his friend Tchang is still alive. Haddock believes the enterprise futile and irrational, but follows him anyway. Interestingly, Tintin and the Picaros reverses this, with Haddock jumping at the opportunity to go to San Theodoros to help the Castafiore, while the more Properly Paranoid Tintin initally refuses to go, but (after a few days) eventually comes along anyway.

Running Gag: Many throughout the series. Haddock's drunken shenanigans. Calculus being hard of hearing/his Berserk Button (being called a goat). Thompson/Thomson injuring themselves. People calling Marlinspike Hall trying to reach Mr. Cutts, the butcher. Castafiore's ear-piercingly loud singing of Gounod's Jewel Aria. The Calculus Affair has this with a piece of sticking plaster that keeps following Haddock around. The Castafiore Emerald itself has quite a lot of these. Snowy getting his tail or a paw trodden on.

Have a Gay Old Time: There are a few old slangs that might get a few chuckles today. notably one instance where a character says "Clever dick", in reference to a police officer. While the series doesn't shy away from depicting drug smuggling and use, these days readers are likely to raise an eyebrow when a ship's captain claims to only be carrying "coke." Coke being a fuel source, not the drug.

Department of Redundancy Department: In the first half of the series, whenever one of the Thompsons says something, the other will add "To be precise", followed by either the same statement, or a rephrasing of it. In the later books, this evolves into a mangling of what the first twin said, usually as a Spoonerism.

Brick Joke: Captain Haddock's difficulties with sticking plaster in The Calculus Affair are briefly referenced in Flight 714. In Destination Moon, Thompson/Thomson believe there to be a skeleton sneaking around the moon project, due to a misunderstanding involving an x-ray machine. In Explorers on the Moon, when The Mole has been revealed and is being interrogated, they break in with a vital question: "The skeleton, Wolff. Was that you?"

Shown Their Work: After Hergé announced at the end of Cigars of the Pharaoh that Tintin's next adventure was to be set in China, he was introduced to Zhang Chongren, a Chinese art student living in Belgium, who offered to consult on The Blue Lotus in order to avoid the stereotypes and caricatures typical of depictions of his homeland. Hergé accepted the offer, leading to a lifetime friendship. Zhang was even included in the story and known as Chang Chong-Chen. A humorous sequence has Tintin telling Chang about European stereotypes of China, which leads him to think that the Europeans are crazy. Hergé was particularly meticulous in his research. He kept a huge collection of photographs, newspaper articles, and anything else possibly useful in future stories, and so many places and objects in the comic books are real places. For instance, the house of Prof. Calculus' Italian friend in The Calculus Affair is a real house that is still standing to this day. Furthermore, much of the scientific information in the books is accurate, or at least was accurate for the knowledge of the time, some apparent errors being a case of Science Marches On. In a odd case to Science Marching a 180 Degree Turn, one of Hergé's most well known "mistakes" was in depicting ice on the Moon (Explorers on the Moon), but since Indian astronomers have indeed found ice there, we probably owe him an apology. Averted in Tintin in the Land of the Soviets and Tintin in the Congo.
