Mom loved Tin Tin, it was an actual comic book she'd read to me as a kid for a bedtime story... Needless to say, I loved the cartoon too, though I never understood why Snowy didn't talk in it like he did in the comics...
I didn't discover the animated show until a few months ago, but I have grown up with the books. I always felt so disappointed whenever I mentioned Tintin to anyone outside my family and they wouldn't know what I'm talking about. Now, however, I'm finding longtime Tintin fans popping up left and right! 'Tis a wonderful thing.
I love the art style. You've done a wonderful job of summing up what makes Tintin, well, Tintin.
thanks for your comment! to be honest i met the comics after the TV show, and both for me are like treasures! seems that with this piece i bring up again the memory of the show and the love of the fans for tintin!
They are wonderful. I love the adventure, the strong points and pitfalls of each character, the humor, and of course I have always been captivated by the way Herge could bring anything into his stories, from under the oceans waters to the streets of China to the mountains of Tibet.
One can always, always use a reminder of a childhood friend, ever waiting for you to come back to the place where you met them. What's amazing about things like Tintin, is that they're just the same as you left them.
Which cartoon decade do you speak of? I remember watching the ones produced in Canada during the 90s (which is what I technically grew up with), but I know my mother watched an earlier production when she herself was a kid, too.
Oh, yeah, I vaguely remember the professor; he didn't show up in the Secrets of the Unicorn episode, which is what the recent 3D film was based on.
