* RapidFireInterrupting: Tintin attempts to teach native children about "''their'' country, Belgium" with the aid of a blackboard, but is constantly interrupted so he never gets any further than the first sentence. Despite the ValuesDissonance, the scene is still hilarious.

** ''WesternAnimation/TarzoonTheShameOfTheJungle'': In this Tarzan parody Tarzoon swings past a scene where Tintin is trying to convert little black Africans. When one of the Africans is distracted by Tarzoon passing by he hits him over the head with his crucifix, while Snowy is standing by.

* NoAnimalsWereHarmed: Errr.... Apart from Snowy almost every animal in this story is harmed or killed. Tintin shoots hundreds of antilopes in the belief its just one whom he missed several times. He shoots a chimpansee just to shed off his skin and wear it as a disguise. He beats up another chimpansee, tries to shoot an elephant, cuts a large snake open and has it swallow its own tail, shoots down another snake, has a leopard eat a sponge giving it digestive problems,... Snowy bites off a lion's tail. A priest shoots several crocodiles dead. There's a rhinoceros Tintin planned to shoot, but luckily it escaped. In the original story however Tintin put a stick of dynamite inside its skin and blew the animal up. Danish publishers felt this was both too unrealistic and very harsh and asked Hergé to change it into the more animal friendly scene still found in the story today.

** The scene where Tintin blows up a rhinoceros has been changed in Scandinavia and English-speaking world to a more realistic scene where the rhino is spared such a fate and runs away. Still, many other scenes where Tintin kills or hurts other wild life animals were kept intact. Notably in the francophone world, where it's seen as too farcical and irrealistic to be worthy of indignation.

Today, ''Tintin in the Congo'' is rather infamous in some countries for its racist portrayal of the Congolese natives, its pro-colonialist themes and its utter disregard for wildlife wellfare. Hergé himself [[OldShame would later become embarrassed by it]] and cited it as "bourgeois" and "paternalistic". In recent years, attempts have been made to ban the book entirely. It currently tends to be sold with a warning label informing potential readers about the controversial content, albeit only in anglophones country. Nota also that ''Tintin au Congo'' left the Purgatory when a Congolese newspaper republished it in the 70s.
