I always thought Captain Haddock had been with Tintin ever since the beginning of the series, until I went and did some research.

I always thought that in The Shooting Star, Tintin really meant that, on page 13 frame 3, the brick and the water really was what he said it was - the meteorite and the Arctic Ocean!

When I was a child I read paperback Tintin books. I knew hardbacks existed because of the publishing information in the paperbacks. Until I was older, I always thought the hardbacks were text only, with no illustrations of the story!

In the Castafiore Emerald, when Wagner had sneaked out of Marlinspike Hall without telling anyone, Tintin noticed him cycling away to the village. As Tintin threaded his way back to Marlinspike Hall, he said,
'Now we will be spared that piano for a change.'

I always thought that Tintin wanted to play the piano for a change! Well, that is until fellow member snowybella pointed me in the right direction saying Tintin was just talking about the respite from hearing Wagner's ardous practise for the umpteenth time.

And yes, I always thought that Tintin and the Captain knew each other from the beginning, until I learned it was not so.
