My favourite moments:

3. When TinTin arrived on the moon.

2. When Haddock ate red pimento in Tibet.

1. When Haddock want to aboard in the shooting stars. Remember, he was the president of Sober Sailor Society, but he carried so many rack of whisky.

Since we have the "what annoys Tintinologists the most" thread, I thought that this one might be fun.

What are your favorite moments of the series? For instance, I was just reading "The Seven Crystal Balls", and the part where Snowy refused to give up on Calculus' hat made me smile. He just looked so pleased with himself!

Also, another favorite is in "The Calculus Affair", when Tintin is trying to not let the Captain say anything incriminating over the tapped hotel phone in Borduria! That bit about the butterflies is funny!

Forgive me if there is already a similar thread, this one just occurred to me!

Can we delete things that we've posted? I feel kinda silly....

Now, of course, I have to do this properly:

Some favs:

-When Tintin listens to the music from the gypsy camp in The Castafiore Emerald. It's a really well-done scene.

-(same book) When Iago bites Haddock, and we can see his "thoughts" about how he'd like to retaliate.

-The sneezing powder in Land of Black Gold!

-Tintin, afraid of a little spider? No, he's only scared of the BIG ones in The Shooting Star.

-In Tintin in Tibet, you remember that sweeping scene where Tharkey tries to convince Tintin of the futility of his efforts? It's only three panels, but conveys much more!

-I can't resist grinning whenever Tintin acts "unusual," whether on purpose, (to fool Mitsuhirato in The Blue Lotus, or accidental, (when he got drunk before his execution in Broken Ear and wound up being spared & drafted!)

-Anything related to anyone "acting the goat." Yes!

As for the stuff I'm not wild about:

-Learning to talk to elephants using a wooden trumpet that you carved for yourself in the jungle? Hmmmmm. I'll take aliens and levitating monks any day over this stuff.

-The Rastapopolus/Carraides, (I know I butchered those names....) "argument" in Flight 714. Those two deserve each other.

Wow. I can't really think of a whole lot of these. However, I didn't think that it was strange for Tintin to not want to run over to General Tapioca right away....he just knows a trap when he sees one!

Wow... There's certainly a lot of great moments in Tintin... But one that I can really remember is in Tintin in Tibet, when Haddock told Tintin a few times that he will NOT go with Tintin even though he wishes to go, but in the end, he came anyway. :3 Also in Destination Moon, Calculus and all that "acting the goat" stuff. XD Wolff's sacrifice in Explorers on the Moon was also touching. And the scene when Tintin acted crazy in Blue Lotus - hilarious. Tintin jumping off that train in Prisoners of the Sun looks pretty awesome to me. :3

Least favorite moments... The weird stuff that happens in Shooting Star and the aliens in Flight 714. They're just bleh.

1. Philipulus the prophet in "Shooting Star"

2. When the flying monk in "Tibet" lands on the monk's shoe.

3. Mik Kanrokitoff in "Flight 714"

One extra, Carreidas is funny too! And don't forget the sticking plaster in "Calculus Affair"!

Not favourite:

1. Tintin blowing up the poor rhino.

2. Tintin shooting all the poor antelopes.

Both from "Congo".
