* FreudWasRight: Any scholarly or academic analysis of the series draws heavily on Freud and psychoanalysis in general... and will claim that just about everything is a sexual metaphor.

* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff[=/=]AmericansHateTingle: Once the colonialist propaganda was [[CanonDiscontinuity excised from later editions of]] ''Tintin in the Congo'', it actually became popular in parts of Francophone Africa, most egregiously, ''in former Belgian Congo itself''. (Those caricatured natives? Obviously they represent that other tribe; [[ValuesDissonance Tribe A is often perfectly fine with mocking Tribe B, vice versa, and they're both often fine with mocking Tribe C]].) However, others don't see the editing as enough.

** Among French commentators, Captain Haddock's bandaid in ''The Calculus Affair'' is sometimes used as a comparison to any particularly sticky scandal that may plague a politician and that just won't go away.

** The ending scene from ''Tintin and The Blue Lotus'' where the Japan withdrew from League of Nation along with its mistreatment of Chinese became a ForegoneConclusion to its entry in UsefulNotes/WorldWarII along with later years of UsefulNotes/SecondSinoJapaneseWar when reading it now.

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment:
** ''The Broken Ear'' has one where an absent-minded professor leaves his house wearing his wife's overcoat and holding a cane like an umbrella, when he comes across a parrot and mistakes it for a person when it speaks. It is a parrot that Tintin is trying to recapture, but there is no interaction with any of the other characters in the story while this vignette is going on, and it adds nothing to advance the story (the parrot has already been shown speaking, so it's not even that). Hergé in his fondness for absent-minded professors probably just wanted to throw in a moment of [[RuleOfFunny comic relief]].
** In the same book, after the two bad guy falls from the boat and drown, there's a pannel showing them being DraggedOffToHell by three little black devils, which is really out of place for the genre of the series.
** ''Tintin in Tibet'' has a short sequence, where Tintin hears something moving up a tree and gets a soggy fruit thrown into his face. Then the story just continues, before we even get to know ''who'' threw that fruit at Tintin.
* BizarroEpisode: ''[[Recap/TintinFlight714 Flight 714]]'' starts out normal enough, when Tintin and his friends are kidnapped by Rastapopulus's henchmen and kept prisoners on a small Indonesian island. But it soon become clear that something weird is going on, and it turns out that aliens have been coming to the island for millennia. And yeah, everybody except for Snowy forget all about the adventure due to LaserGuidedAmnesia.

*** Note that ''The Blue Lotus'' came out during the Japanese invasion and occupation of China. As such, that unflattering depiction is a scathing indictment of Japanese imperialism of the times and no different from similar depictions of Nazi Germany. For comparison, in the ''The Crab with the Golden Claws'', there is a sympathetic Japanese character, who appears in the very beginning and the very end, who is not caricatured and is not a JerkAss of any sort.
