Added DiffLines:

** The part after the avalanche had the llamas running away with all their supplies and ammunition, only for the Captain to reveal that he is carrying a box of ammunition, wrapped in a piece of newspaper. Tintin asked him to keep the paper as they can use it later to light a fire. [[ChekhovsGun This piece of newspaper had the news about the solar eclipse that ultimately saved their life]]. This scene is cut from both the Belvision movie and the Nelvana cartoon. Except in the Nelvana version, the Captain still mentions Tintin asking him to keep the paper, making it an AdaptationInducedPlotHole.


Added DiffLines:

** Tintin prevents the rocket from taking off with the others stranded on the moon. In the book, he explained that he sabotaged the rocket and Calculus had to point out that though his intentions were noble, the rocket must have been damaged and the repair work will take quite some time while they are on limited oxygen. This problem is not mentioned in the cartoon.


** In the book, Snowy and a SacredCow end up fighting in India, so the locals try to offer Snowy as sacrifice to Lord Shiva and Thomson and Thompson pretend to be the deity to save his life. In the cartoon, they simply find Snowy walking on the railway tracks.



** The condor that carried Snowy to its nest was shot down in the book and then another one attacked Tintin. Here, however, the gunshot just scares it away and it comes back to attack Tintin.

Also, the condor actually dug its talons into Tintin's face when it grabbed his face. Here, it grabs him by the shoulder.


** In the book, the Captain refused to be a part of the mission when he found out tobacco and whisky are not allowed in the rocket and only changed his mind when the Thomsons said that he shouldn't be a part of the mission anyway due to his advanced age. This scene is not present in the cartoon.



** Captain Haddock doesn't smuggle whisky bottles in fake books. The books are real and he just enjoys some drink.

Added DiffLines:

* ''[[Recap/TintinTheCastafioreEmerald The Castafiore Emerald]]'': Captain Haddock doesn't scare the little gypsy girl and she doesn't bite his hand in retaliation.

Added DiffLines:

** The part where the Captain causes an avalanche by a [[SneezeOfDoom sneeze]] is also cut. The next part where he causes a bunch of bad guys get trapped in huge snow balls is kept, but the part where they all fall to their deaths is not shown.

** Snowy doesn't get beaten up by the Captain's cat.


** The the escaping Sondonesians knocking Allan's teeth (and plucking his hair) is removed. Allan retains his trademark appearance here, possibly to justify his future appearance (unlike the comics, the events of this episode take place before that of ''[[Recap/TintinTheRedSeaSharks The Red Sea Sharks]]'' where he appears again).

Added DiffLines:

** The final attempt to blow up ''Ramona'' using a mine only for it to be eaten by a Shark is also removed, presumably because said Shark explodes afterwards.


** The very petty reason why the Emir threatened to expose the Arabair (abdullah wanted them to do an aerobic stunt, which they refused) is cut.

Added DiffLines:

** Jolyon Wagg's appearance in the end is also cut.

Added DiffLines:

** The entire sequence where Mull Pasha orders his men to attack the Horsemen (Tintin, Snowy and Captain Haddock) is changed. In the comics, he described men heading towards Djebel, followed by the fact that there will be armoured cars and the fact that they are allies of the Emir. [[PoorCommunicationKills In that order, confusing colonel Achmed]] resulting in [[HilarityEnsues the armoured cars getting bombed]]. Here, the colonel bombs the armoured cars, despite the instructions being clear, ruining the joke.


* ''[[Recap/TintinLandOfBlackGold Land Of Black Gold]]'': Thomson and Thompson's belief that a roadside assistance company is causing car breakdowns to generate business, and their bungling undercover investigation which gets them fired from the company, are not shown.

** All instances of Tintin and the Captain hitting Abdullah are cut, likely because these are grown men beating a child as punishment.


Added DiffLines:

** Captain Haddock attacking Abdullah with a garden hose after accidentally doing the same to the Thomsons is removed, likely because of cruelty against a child.

** The entire subplot where Tintin is mistaken for a revolutionary supporter of general Alcazar, because he [[AlcoholInducedStupidity drunkenly kept shouting]] ''[[AlcoholInducedStupidity "Long live General Alcazar!"]]'' is changed. Instead, he is mistaken for a revolutionary because he was arrested, (which happened because he was framed as a terrorist). For that matter, Tintin's death sentence getting delayed because of the revolution and due to the guns not working is also left out.
