Editorial Reviews

One of the most popular European classic comic strips of all time tells stories of the heroic escapades of youthful reporter Tintin and his loyal canine companion Snowy. From a comic that first appeared in 1929 by Belgian artist Herge, these delightful adventures were spun into books, magazines, TV series, radio programs and theater productions. The television series The Adventures Of Tintin (1991 1993) follows Tintin and Snowy in solving mysteries closely related to the much-loved original stories. A colorful cast of characters is along for the ride, including the salty Captain Haddock, handy Professor Calculus and clumsy Thomson & Thompson. Exploring the globe, solving mysteries and searching for truth and justice, Tintin and crew inspire the adventurer in all of us!

Now featured in a major motion picture that intertwines elements of two episodes included here (The Secret Of The Unicorn and Red Rackham’s Treasure), the complete first season of the award-winning series is now available for your enjoyment on DVD for the first time!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Adventures of Tintin - Season One - Shout Factory December 7, 2011
[[VIDEOID:mo2MGEBQBQ584R8]]It is almost a sure bet that the name Tintin is unfamiliar to most people in the United States - that is, of course, if you are not thinking about good ol' Rin Tin Tin. And that is okay, because the gigantic machinery of animation in the United States, via Disney, Warner Brothers, Hanna-Barbera, and others have done a fantastic job in promoting their creations with a great dose of patriotism. For that reason, Tintin, as well as Asterix and Obelix, are only known by few people in our country, even though they are and have been huge in Europe and other parts for many years. But now, maybe due to the imminent release of Steven Spielberg's film "The Adventures of Tintin," we are finally able to see the original animated TV series the way it is meant to be, with the release of the delightful DVD "The Adventures of Tintin - Season One." And trust me, what a treat it is! If you haven't read the comic books yet, then you will love this series.

"The Adventures of Tintin" was created by Georges Rémi (1907-1983), who the world would know as Hergé, and it first appeared on January 10, 1929, with a total of 24 books published over many years. It is said that these books have been translated to 80 languages, and that more than 350 million copies have been sold.

Tintin happens to be a very young Belgian journalist who can't say no to a good story, and always gets involved in some dangerous adventures. His dog, Snowy, usually accompanies him on his missions, which include a series of characters that have recurrent roles, such as Captain Haddock, Professor Calculus, and detectives Thomson and Thompson, two look-alikes who, even though are incredibly inept in their actions, actually help to solve crimes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tintin's Adventures, for Home Viewing... January 22, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Nicely timed with the big screen production of "The Adventures of Tintin" is the release on DVD of this early 1990's television adaptation of Tintin. Season One contains seven of the original Tintin adventures, including "The Secret of the Unicorn", "Red Rackham's Treasure, and "The Crab with the Golden Claws", elements of which were woven into the plot for the movie.

Season One also includes "The Cigars of the Pharoah", "The Blue Lotus", "The Black Island", and "The Calculus Affair". All but "Red Rackham's Treasure" have two parts, each about 20 minutes long.

The comic characters Tintin, his faithful dog Snowy, and friends Captain Haddock, Professor Calculus, and the Detectives Thompson and Thomson are well-known in Europe, thanks to a series of graphic novels that have been in print for decades. This DVD set is a nice capture of the original stories. The animation style closely mimics Belgian artist Herge's distinctive art style, while the plots have only minor alterations from Herge's originals. The voice actors for the DVD set were British, but this should not pose a distraction for viewers. Tintin's boy scout ethics and sense of adventure are TV-safe. "The Adventures of Tintin: Season One" is very highly recommended to fans of Tintin, especially those who might be lookng to introduce Tintin to their children who are too young for the movie. Release of Season Two is due later in 2012.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Adaptations of Herge's Works. August 19, 2011
By Darby
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
November 22, 2011 can't come soon enough! "The Adventures of Tintin" are terrific animated adaptations of Herge's original stories. I remember seeing the series when it was originally broadcast and I can't wait for my children to experience it. Hopefully, Shout! Factory will release Seasons 2 and 3 soon after Season 1.

My review for all three Seasons of "The Adventures of Tintin". My entire family loved watching it. The animations are wonderful. The only thing I missed is that some of the wonderful moments from original comics book are missing. This is NOT always due to the current of level political correctness [for example, in "Tintin in Tibet", Tintin and Captain caught the flight to Kathmandu from New Delhi. Their last minute dash to the New Delhi Airport was fun and still stands politically correct in todays standard (as of 2013, to be politically correct from my side)]. This whole New Delhi episode is missing in this animated version. This is true for many stories in all the three seasons of "The Adventures of Tintin". I grew up reading Tintin and although I do not want to call somebody a "blistering barnacle", I still enjoy Captain do it.
Bottom-line- Worth watching, kids will love it; but if you grew up reading the original comics book, be prepared to miss some of the fine moments.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Cartoon! Precisely! August 4, 2012
My children and I have enjoyed watching all three seasons of TinTin and are absolutely hooked. They don't make 'em like this anymore. Great detective stories, fun humor, and refreshingly not America-centric. I only wish there were more.
