Some one told me Objective Moon was the first Belvision cartoon to be made, is that true? At least it is very different in style.
was more than likely the first Belvision series. At the beginning, Tintin "breaks the fourth wall" (waves at the camera) and says: "Hi! My name is Tintin." And I agree, the animation style is very different from the others. At some points, Tintin actually looks like Tintin!
About 1994 they showed the Red Rackham's Tresure
Belvision movie on British TV - does anybody remeber this being on? I know it's a long shot. I can't realy remember as I was only about 5 at the time.
I agree with jock123, your mum must have seen a repeat of the Ellipse-Nelvana episode and mistaken it for the Belvision one. A lot of people who don't know the books that well do the same.
This review from the Amazon Tintin Ellipse-Nelvana DVD boxset is a fine example:Warning to those in the UK expecting a good trip back to your childhood. This box set of dvds is apparently the watered down US version. They even have different voices for Captain Haddock and the Thompson Twins. There's not much else to say except that I think I wasted my money. If they release one with the UK voices on and the "Herge's adventures of Tintin" intro, I'll be right there buying my copy. Until then, it's farewell Tintin.... I feel you're going to end up in a car boot sale. If I could give it less than one star I would!
Whoever's writing this is very misinformed.Moderator Note:
We now have a very comprehensive list of Belvision broadcasts thanks to a dilligent member keeping records - read it here
. Latest known Belvision broadcast of the serial was 1991, so 1994 was probably Ellipse-Nelvana.
