Sorry if this is old news ( probably is), but I recently bought the Tintin 75th box set on dvd, and was delighted to see Hergé himself appear randomly throughout the whole series! Anyone else catch him everywhere?

For more info you should check out the spot Hergé pages on this site.

Jack Bauer from 24, no?

I have noticed that too!

In fact, he actually spoke in one episode "The Broken Ear" during the scene where he took a photograph of a glass cabinet. The voice was probably done by someone else!

Does anyone else know of any other speaking parts?

You mean that guy with the blond hair? Yeah, I noticed that too. I was actually going to post a topic on here about that but didn't get round to it. I hadn't thought that it could be a tribute to Hergé, but it does look like a fair resemblance. Do you mean the guy that looks into Tintin's carriage on the train in The Black Island/one of the doctors seen with Krollspell at the end of Flight 714?

We all think of Tintin as a globetrotter, but this guy gets everywhere as well! The only ones I can't remember seeing him in are the two moon stories, but he probably appears somewhere in them too. I think he's in every other one.

A cartoon version of Hergé also appears at the beginning of the 1969 Prisoners of the Sun animated film.

I think I remember Hergé as one of the draughtsman in Destination Moon.

He also appears at the end of "Explorers on the Moon", when Baxter and a couple of other technicians cut into the rocket and enter it once it's landed back on earth.

He actually talks in "The Crab With The Golden Claws", when he appears as a reporter-"How does it feel to be a hero, Mr. Tintin?"

And he also appears halfway through that one; when they land on the moon he randomly and conspicuosly appears next to Baxter. I really felt that there they could have had a bigger crowd around them.

Edit: hey, how are you supposed to quote without manually copying and pasting? whenever I press "quote" it comes up with "[i][function][/i]"...

Has anybody noticed in The Crab with the Golden Claws that the Japanese policeman posts a letter to Tintin next to it says Hergé?
