** ''The Castafiore Emerald'' is a intentional RandomEventsPlot where Tintin and Haddock stay at Marlinspike Hall for nearly the entirety of the story. It's full of anticlimaxes such as how Haddock's attempt to escape Castafiore by going to Italy is foiled by an accident, the Roma community plight is immediately solved by Haddock’s generosity, Haddock never has the chance to make AnAesop about tolerance because of little distractions and the emerald’s thief turned to be a harmless magpie.

** ''Tintin and the Picaros:'' Tintin, the GentlemanAdventurer, no longer enjoys adventure and [[RefusalOfTheCall refuses the call]] for some days, almost all the supporting cast is in [[BananaRepublic San Theodoros]] when the protagonist go there, Haddock cannot drink alcohol, [[SeriousBusiness and the worst is that Tintin]], [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks instead of his plus fours, now wears jeans! ]] The second to last panel shows that San Theodoros has had a FullCircleRevolution and it was all a ShaggyDogStory.

* TheCaligula: In his first appearance, General Alcazar, the military dictator of San Theodoros, has a shade of this, though mostly he is more of a paranoid Stalin type than a sadist. However, he does indulge in such jokes as throwing a tantrum and shooting a military aide [[spoiler: ([[FalseRoulette with blanks]], though [[{{Gaslighting}} he did not know that]])]] for [[DisproportionateRetribution beating him at chess]].
** He mellows considerably in later appearances, at least in his interactions with Tintin, but sometimes has throwbacks to this, firing weapons in the air and throwing around reckless death threats. These are taken all the more seriously by subordinates who ''can't'' know whether he will carry them out or not, even if Tintin ignores them as mere histrionics.
** And he remains a megalomaniac to the very end, renaming the capital of his country [[EgoPolis Alcazaropolis]] once he seizes power in ''Tintin and the Picaros''.

** 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.

** ''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.
