** 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''.

* CharacterSignatureSong: Bianca Castafiore is usually seen and heard performing the Jewel aria from Charles Gounod's opera ''Faust''. In the English Nelvana dub, she instead sings "How I love to see her lovely eyes!"

* 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.

* FollowTheLeader: Virtually every European comic strip owes something to ''Tintin''. If they are not directly inspired by it, they at least read it in their youth. The ''Tintin'' magazine was full of comic strips directly inspired by Hergé's drawing style.

Briefly, Tintin was invented by Georges Remi (AKA Creator/{{Herge}}, from his initials backwards, R.G., spelt phonetically in French) as a cartoon character for ''Le Petit Vingtième'', the children's supplement to ''Le Vingtième Siècle'' (The Twentieth Century), a conservative, Catholic newspaper in Belgium. The character was developed from Totor, a boy scout character Hergé had previously drawn for ''Le Boy-Scout Belge''. When the German occupation ended the publication of ''Le Vingtième Siècle'', the feature moved to the Brussels daily ''Le Soir'', where it became a daily newspaper strip until the Liberation in 1944. After World War 2 Tintin appeared in the new weekly comic magazine ''Tintin''. The series ran from 1929 to 1976; the incomplete ''Tintin and Alph-Art'' was released in 1986 after Hergé's death.

* HaveAGayOldTime: There are a few old slangs that might get a few chuckles today. notably one instance where a character says "Clever dick", in reference to a police officer. While the series doesn't shy away from depicting drug smuggling and use, these days readers are likely to raise an eyebrow when a ship's captain claims to only be carrying "coke."

* NoAntagonist: ''Red Rackham's Treasure'', ''Tintin in Tibet'' and ''The Castafiore Emerald'', though both initially seem to have one.

**
''Red Rackham's Treasure'', ''Tintin in Tibet'' Treasure'' is more about Tintin and ''The his friends looking for a treasure than them fighting villains.
** "Tintin in Tibet" has no villains, and in the end, even the supposedly monstruous Yeti is revealed to only be lonely and misunderstood.
** "The
Castafiore Emerald'', though both initially seem Emerald" has people showing off prejudices against gypsies, and a couple of underhanded papparazzi take pictures and write stories without permission. But if you compare it to have one.the villains in other {{Tintin}} stories, it is really nothing. And as for the thief, who had stolen the emerald? (It was only [[spoiler: a magpie]]).

** A bizarre instance occurs in ''Cigars of the Pharaoh'', when Tintin meets Sheikh Patrash Pasha. The Sheikh knew of Tintin by reading of his adventures, and he actually shows Tintin ''one of the real-world Tintin albums'', complete with cover art. In earlier versions of the comic, the Sheikh showed the cover art of ''Tintin in America'', then ''Tintin in the Congo''; modern versions of the comic now show ''Destination Moon'', which came out ''after'' the release of ''Cigars''.
