Editorial Reviews

Young Tintin and his trusty canine sidekick Snowy are back for another season of heroic escapades and globe-trotting adventures. Based on the comic strip by Herge, The Adventures Of Tintin Season Two tracks Tintin and Snowy everywhere from the Himalayas to the Middle East in pursuit of truth and justice. Along with the brackish Captain Haddock, skillful Professor Calculus and ham-fisted Thomson & Thompson, they investigate a mysterious meteor, exploding cars, missing persons and much more!


With a major motion picture now based on the original stories, the complete second season of the award-winning series is available here for your enjoyment for the first time on DVD!

4.0 out of 5 stars Tintin January 4, 2012
By Ryan A.
Format:DVD
I got turned on to The Adventures of Tintin in fifth grade, which was about 20 years ago. I remember that alot of kids in my class wanted to read the books, which were available to check out in the school library. And there never were any copies available when i wanted to check one out. It used to make me mad, I'm laughing right now thinking about it. We were all so obsessed with wanting to read those books that year.

And now, they have made a Tintin movie. I'll have to see it sometime. This DVD set here is the second series of episodes they released for the cartoon series, from the early 90's.

The episodes in this set are: The Shooting Star, The Broken Ear, King Ottokar's Sceptre, Tintin in Tibet, Tintin and the Picaros, Land of Black Gold, and Flight 714. Six of those are two-part episodes, which makes a total of 13 episodes in this set.

4.0 out of 5 stars New Tintin fan April 10, 2012
Format:DVD
Being American, I have very little nostalgia for Tintin. I never read the books growing up, never watched the cartoon series. Over the years I have picked a few books up and learned to love Belgian artist Herge's most famous creation, but I am watching these episodes of The Adventures of Tintin for the first time.

Obviously, it is the big-budget The Adventures of Tintin (which I also haven't seen) that prompted the release of these season box-sets of the 1991 Canadian production. Despite their worldwide popularity, adaptations of Tintin are fairly rare. The only previous series was a 1960 Belgian animation Hergé's Adventures of Tintin that is somewhat despised for re-writing and re-working Herge's stories. By contrast, this Canadian series is said to be so faithful to the source material that the animators actually transposed pages from the book directly onto the screen. There were a few cuts made here and there--mostly cutting down on Captain Haddock's taste for whiskey or softening the violence and death--but even then these cartoons have a harder edge than your average American animation from the same era.

Even if you know nothing about Tintin these stories are still good fun. You will soon become familiar with the characters; Tintin himself is a brave boy adventurer in the tradition of Johnny Quest and Rusty Venture. Tintin never really steals the show or makes himself the star, but is instead a somewhat blank character that allows all of the wild personalities around him to shine. Thomson and Thompson, the two bumbling yet oblivious detectives, were my favorites in the series. They could always be counted on to do something ridiculous to get the story moving. Captain Haddock and Professor Calculus were excellent when played off of each other.

Format:DVD
Back in 1929, Belgian artist Georges Remi aka "Hergé", would create a comic book series titled "Les Adventures de Tintin" (The Adventures of Tintin) which was first published in the Belgian Newspaper Le XXe Siecle.

The comic book series would prove to be successful that it was made into several books, led to a Tintin magazine and also received aptations for film, radio, television and theater.

In fact, the comic book series was so popular that it appeared in many countries worldwide in more than 80 languages and over 350 million copies of the books were sold worldwide.

But for many people who were not familiar with the comic books or other adaptations, in America, many were introduced to "The Adventures of Tintin" through the animated series that aired on television back in 1991-1992. A total of 39 half-hour episodes were created and are based on the best-known stories from the book. And now the second season (episodes 14-26) of "The Adventures of Tintin" was released on DVD courtesy of Shout! Factory.

In order to appeal to a younger audience, there were some changes that needed to be made. The key change was toning down the violence, the number of deaths and also the use of firearms. Especially how the series would approach the use of alcohol, which Captain Haddock drinks a lot of. Each time that Tintin is injured, he is able to bounce back to recover fairly quickly. So, a few liberties were taken in order to appeal to children. But certain elements such as the threats on Tintin's and Snowy's lives are still intact to a certain degree.

"The Adventures of Tintin" features an adventurous Belgian reporter named Tintin who goes on adventures with his white fox terrier named Snowy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Kids love him February 18, 2014
By Neil
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Tin Tin is a little more sophisticated the the average cartoon. Yet it is still non-sensical in a way that charms children. Be warned that minor characters can actually die or be at risk of dying. If you feel the need to protect young ones from any violence, you might want to steer towards Tele Tubies rather than Tin Tin.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice show January 23, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
We're big fans of the Spielberg/Jackson movie, so were excited to find the old animated series. The stories can get repetitive (how many times can Tintin & Snowy get knocked out and survive?) but they're cool and the animation is really well done.

I love the stories in this cartoon. They age very well. My kids (5 and 3) liked it too although some episodes do tend to be a bit violent for them.

The books are better, but still these videos are good. Lots of gags and events in these stories which were used in later famous movies and shows such as Raiders of the Lost Ark. Read more
