Tintin

Wikisimpsons - The Simpsons Wiki


The Adventures of Tintin (often referred to by its title character) is a series of comic stories by Belgian cartoonist Hergé. The main characters are Tintin, his dog Snowy and his best friend Captain Haddock. The stories focus on the globe-spanning adventures of the trio as they apprehend criminals, solve mysteries, participate in scientific expeditions, and come to the rescue of friends in trouble.

The stories were originally published in serial format in various newspapers and magazines in Belgium and France. They were later adapted into comic album format. Later still, most of the stories were compiled into a seven-volume collection of hardcover books, commonly referred to as "Tintin Three-in-Ones" as each volume contains three stories.

As of the 100th anniversary of Hergé's birth (in 2007), the series had sold over 200 million books. Stories from the series have also been adapted for radio, theatre, television and film: most recently, the 2011 motion-capture film The Adventures of Tintin, directed by Steven Spielberg.

Tintin has been referred to several times in The Simpsons media.

ComicBookGuy October 24, 2011 Mr. Spielberg: I will see “Tintin” w/ an open mind. But if Snowy does not say “Wooah” when he barks, I will hurl eggs at the screen. Thank u
