Decent series based on the unforgettable characters created by "Hergé" born under the name Georges Remi
15 April 2019 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

Charming and worthwhile adaptation about timeless and quintessential European comic book . Entertaining Tintin set rendition with thrilling and exciting adventures whose plots inspired on the popular and famous comic books by the genius Herge . Since his creation in 1930 with ¨Tintin in the land of Soviets¨ the success has been unstoppable . Within the next 80 years Tintin became one of the most popular European comics of the 20-21th Century, due to its well-researched plots, appealing characters, humor, political , thrillers, & real world settings , in which Tintin and friend travelling all over the world to their own backyard . The tales are ordinary Tintin albumes , with adventures in exotic places, on North America , South America , India , China , Egypt , Morocco , desert of Sahara and an other African locations . For those of you not familiar with Tintin, let's just say that every Belgium kids and most European children under the age and grown-up have been excited by his comic book adventures for over half a century . The series will appeal to the fans of the popular animated hero named Tintin and his faithful sidekicks as well as the comic-books nostalgics . As Tintin , Professor Calculus , and Captain Haddock accompanied by the wonderful dog Snowy (or Milu) set out all around the world in pursuit kidnappers, jewel thieves , investigate as well as solve killings , and hunting for a sunken ship commanded by Haddock's ancestor containing a valuable treasure . Tintin and Captain Haddock are usually helped or annoyed by the Inspectors Thompson and Thompson . All of them battling over-the-top bad guys . This series being formed by the following episodes , ordinarily shown in two parts : The Crab with the Golden Claws, The Secret of the Unicorn , Red Rackham's Treasure, Cigars of the Pharaoh , Blue Lotus , The Black Island , The Calculus Affair , The Shooting Star, The Broken Ear, King Ottokar's Sceptre , Land of Black Gold , Flight 714 , The Red Sea Sharks , The seven cristal balls ,Prisoners of the Sun , The Castafiore Emeralds ,Destination moon , Explorers on the Moon , Tintin in Tibet ,Tintin in America , Tintin and the Picaros . The only books to not be given episode retellings were the following ones : ¨Tintin in the Land of the Soviets¨ : that's why it was highly discriminating for the country of Russia giving a sour critique against communists and Russian revolution and its drawings were extremely naif ; ¨Tintin in the Congo¨ : that's why the album had racial issues , bigotry , animal cruelty and set durante cruel empire of King Leopold of Belgium ; and ¨Tintin and the Alpha Art¨ that's why it was the only one to be incomplete due to the death of Georges Remi .

This is a funny , moving , action-packed , adventure comic book adaptation with hilarious moments here and there . This series is an enjoyable production, an attractive and straight forward approach to Herge's original source material being professionally directed . It has Tintin and his inseparable friends captain Haddock , Professor Calculus , the botcher Detectives Thompson taking on , as always, against stupid , ruthless enemies and mean international delinquents . It is given an aceptable treatment in this superior TV series . The production values & drawings are both decent , with just enough charming to appeal to the Tintin fanatics , and with great doses of action , case of the potentially thrilling elements . This 90s series upon the popular "Tintin" comic-book magazine brilliantly captures the outrageous adventures , tongue-in-cheek, satire, comedy , roller-coaster action taking the characters and elements from original stories . A marvelous recounting of Tintin stories and filmmakers demonstrate once again versatility in adapting these gorgeous adventures . As usual , captain Haddock really steals the show , at times , he manages to capture pure magic with his stunningly awesome portrayal of the grumpy drunken and it is definitely worth a look , along with the bumbling , botcher detectives . It's enjoyable and faithful approach to Tintin classic character with top-notch characters , amusement and entertainment . A highly recommended series that nobody should miss it especially during holiday time . ¨The adventures of Tintin¨ starred by the young reporter, his beloved dog and intimate friends : Haddock , Calculus , Castafiore , Nestor .. as they travel around the world on risked adventures and still ranks as one of the best TV renditions of the Tintin classic ever . Based on the unforgettable characters created by "Hergé" born under the name Georges Remi , as he was born on May 22, 1907 in Brussels, Belgium. As a child, Herge had a gift for drawing but never had any formal training in the visual arts. He attended both school and the boy scouts during the World War 1 and post-World War 1 era. After he finished school Herge published his first ever cartoon: "The Adventures of Totor". 1929, Herge introduced a cartoon about a traveling Belgium reporter , Tintin , accompanied by his fox terrier (Snowy) traveling the Soviet Union. By 1930 ,Herge published the very first Tintin book: "Tintin in the Land of the Soviets". After that , followed a weekly magazine in 1946 . Later on , it's published successful comic books as ¨Cigarrettes of pharaoh, Treasure of Rackam the Red ,Tintin and the scepter of Ottokar¨. Tintin soon became Herge's "ligne Claire" (French for clear line) legacy. The later adventures of Tintin involved other locations of the world from China ¨The blue Lotus¨ all the way to America as ¨Tintin in America¨. After completing 23 books, Herge passed away on March 3, 1983, leaving "Tintin & the Alpha-Art" (The 24th book) unfinished . Later on , Raymond Leblanc produced the following films: ¨Tintin in the lake of Sharks¨ and 1970 ¨Tintín in the temple of the sun¨. And recently Steven Spielberg produced and Peter Jackson directed ¨Tintin and Red Rackham's treasure¨ by means of Motion Capture technique .The series will appeal to Tintin comic-books buffs. An agreeable , fun adaptation from a great comic book. Full of humor , it's a funny and familiar entertaining for kids and grown-ups .
