No sadly, I did watch a few of the TV shows that were on when I was really young (seeing as they would have been aired in the UK when I was around 4/5) so I don’t remember much but it’s one thing I wish I could go back to and watch/know more about. Maybe I should look for the books sometime…

I read every one I could get my hands on when I was young. My favourite is the double ‘Secret of the Unicorn’ and ‘Red Rackham’s Treasure’. Captain Haddock is my Hero.

I’ve read all of them in English, minus the Tintin in the Land of the Soviets and Tintin and Alph Art. I’ve also read Tintin au Congo, Tintin en Amérique, Le Lotus Blue, I’ile Noir, Les Tresor de Rackham le Rouge, Les Sept Boules de Crystal and Les Bijoux de la Castafiore in French (Belgian French). Its interesting because not only have they translated the books, they’ve made the characters talk like englishmen, while they ought to be speaking like Belgians!

My favorites The Crab with the Golden Claws, Red Rackham’s Treasure and The Shooting Star because they were the first three I read. My Favorite character is Nestor, the butler.

I basically lived off them as a kid. A few summers ago i worked at a toy store and I spent every break I had re-reading them all. I have read Tintin au Congo, but not Tintin in the Land of the Soviets.

Used to love Tintin comics as a kid, but honestly don’t remember any of the titles – even if I did, they’d be the Danish ones, so probably not of much use.
I did get to visit the ‘cartoon museum’ in Belgium when I was there with my class. It was pretty cool and a decent Tintin section too.

I read most of them in primary school, I remember particularly enjoying Tintin in Tibet, Tintin and the Picaros, Cigars of the Pharoah and The Land of Black Gold. I once dressed up as Captain Haddock for a fancy dress party. I am going to buy the box set of animated movies for my dad for his birthday.
I do, however, prefer Asterix myself.

@Shrubbery: I bought the boxed-set recently, it’s really well done although there isn’t a french-language option which is a pity considering they were produced in both French and English (those awesome canadians!). The series doesn’t include Tintin au Congo though because it was banned in some countries because of its racist content and cruelty to animals.
