I believe both branches are worthy of one's consideration; especially if you are a tried-and-true Tintin fan.
The Nivana branch was a series especially created for TV and the animation is excellent. Somehow they were able to capture the look of Tintin & Co. that is amazingly faithful to Herge's original books. There were two seasons created and include most (if not all) of the Tintin book stories. The two outer space adventures ("Destination Moon" and "Explorers on the Moon") were especially well done and are included in the Season One set. On the other hand, the Spielberg movie combined serveral of the Herge' stories into one film; but it was also exceedingly well done. Therefore I heartily recommend both this Nirvana set as well as the First Season set and, of course, the Tintin movie.
P.S. The Season Two set also includes the UFO adventure "Flight 714" and the Alien Meteor adventure "The Shooting Star". Enjoy
Season Two contains seven stories, six of them arranged in two parts, for a total of 13 episodes. The episodes average just over 20 minutes, just right for the attention span of fans too young for the movie. The animation style very closely imitates that of the original comics, while the stories have been minimally edited for the episode length. The voice actors were British, but this should not be a distraction for viewers. Tintin's boy scout ethics are TV-safe for any age.
Season Two contains "The Shooting Star", "The Broken Ear", "King Ottokar's Sceptre", "Tintin in Tibet", "Tintin and the Picaros", "Land of Black Gold", and "Flight 714". "Tintin in Tibet" in particular is considered one of the very best Tintin stories. It and Season Two are very highly recommended to fans of Tintin of any age, including those fans wishing to introduce Tintin to their younger children.
Probably will buy other seasons. Others encouraged not do it so that inventory will be saved for my purchase LOL!
