Hey, I was just wondering if there are any Tintin fans around here? As in Tintin with the little dog Snowy, Captain Haddock and Professor Calculus?
I for one am a big Tintin fan!! I have all the comic books that have at least been transilated into English, and I have seen bits of the tv show but didn't like it :dead: anyway hers your chance to talk about Tintin!!!

I think I used to watch the TV show...doesn't have two twin guys named "Thompson and Thompson" too?

Wow! I haven't thought about Tin-Tin in forever! That was one amusing guy, but I only saw the TV show. I think the only thing I remember was he and the Captain guy singing, "Yo ho ho, and a bottle of rum, Red Rockin's Treasure, here we come!" or something along those lines. Whoa...talk about your flashbacks, I remember exactly what I was wearing, where I was sitting, and who I was with when I watched that episode. *shakes head* Weird...thanks for bringing that up!

I never saw the show but I read the big comic books when I was younger :)

Good!!! I love tintin!! that episode which you reffer to must be From "The Secret of the Unicorn" or "Red Rackham's treasure"
Yes there are 2 detectives named Thompson and Thomson they are exactly alike except for the fact that Thompson had slightly out reached mustatch, I think. They aren't twins though, In fact they aren't even related!!

10-07-2002, 01:50 PM

10-07-2002, 02:53 PM
:lol: The comic book is what counts, the tv show didn't look great :dead:
a tintin pc game eh? I played a snes game based off The Prisoners of the Sun but nothing else...
10-07-2002, 03:16 PM
Perhaps the pc version of the game was a conversion of the snes version to the pc...i think it had the same title and everything...
10-07-2002, 03:28 PM
I used to really enjoy that show, haven't seen it in ages though, wonder do they still make it?
10-07-2002, 03:33 PM
I think they stopped making new episodes of that toon already.
10-07-2002, 03:39 PM
Too bad. But if the comic book is out there, I may just have to rush out and giggle at past memories.
10-07-2002, 03:45 PM
Yeah i think you can buy the comics here http://www.navrang.com/tintin.php
What i want to see is the game :D maybe i'll download the snes rom and perhaps the pc game if it's abandonware already.
10-07-2002, 03:57 PM

10-07-2002, 04:52 PM
Non-english??? Well, gee, then I'll be sure to read the english versions. What is it written in? Greek? Spanish? Russian? Pig Latin?
10-07-2002, 04:59 PM
well it was orriginally written in French and actually most of the books have been put into 30+ languages :teek: Only the original 2 books aren't in English; Tintin in the land of the soviets ( :lol: ) and Tintin in the Congo also there is a unfinished book because Herge died while making it called Tintin and the Alpha art...
10-07-2002, 05:03 PM
