** ''Tintin in The Land of the Soviets'' was only available in Hergé's old black-and-white style, was essentially an anti-Soviet propaganda piece and lacked of a real plot.

* AdaptedOut: ''Tintin in The Land of the Soviets'', ''Tintin in the Congo'', and ''Tintin and Alph-Art'' were never adapted in the Nelvana TV show, the first only being available in Herge's old black-and-white style, the second for its racial stereotyping and unavailability in English at the time, and the third because of its incomplete status.

* AdaptedOut: Three albums were never adapted in the Nelvana TV show for various reasons.

->''Tintin is neither a surname nor a first name, it is much more than that Tintin is a totally unique world, a myth or a saga. Tintin is created from Hergé's subconscious desire to be perfect, to be a hero. The hero who everyone between 7 and 77 years old wants to be, or become while reading the Adventures of Tintin.''

* EvenEvilHasStandards: In ''The Shooting Star'', the rival expedition is more than willing to sink to a lot of lows to sabotage the scientific one. During the race to the meteorite, when Tintin is parachuting onto the meteorite, a member takes out a gun to shoot him only for the person next to him to push it down and say "Have you gone mad?!"

** ContinuityLockout: However, a result of all the continuity nods causes some of the later books to confuse newcomers. ''Fortunately'' for the most part this is averted (Wherein Tintin recognises a character and an asterisk in the book versions will mention where he saw them, or where a certain event is alluded to and an asterisk mentions where it happened). The two-parters also begin with a summary.

** Zloty also does not appear in the Nelvana version of ''Cigars of the Pharaoh''.



* {{Bowdlerization}}: Despite that the Nelvana series kept many of the same plotlines from the comics, a few minor details were kept around, [[TropesAreTools while still keeping true to the original story]]:
** All instances of blackface were removed from the Nelvana series - the instance in ''Broken Ear'' wherein Tintin dresses as a black crew member was replaced with Tintin wearing a wig and a fake mustache.
** In order to fit the time, the newspaper clipping at the end of ''The Red Sea Sharks'' was removed. As a result, this meant that the cargo hold full of African Muslims were visually identical, but their backstory was changed to them being refugees attempting to seek asylum in America. In some ways, this makes it even ''more'' dastardly and it remains plausible.
** The redrawings also bowdlerized many bits that even Hergé thought were a bit unfortunate.



* CharacterSignatureSong: Bianca Castafiore is usually seen and heard performing the Jewel aria from Charles Gounod's opera ''Faust''.

* BrawnHilda: Castafiore is a much more realistic portrayal of this trope - she is indeed large, but [[ShownTheirWork this is common for opera singers with her level of vocal vigor]].


Added DiffLines:

** ''The Calculus Affair'' has this with a piece of sticking plaster that keeps following Haddock around.
** ''The Castafiore Emerald'' itself has quite a lot of these.
