A copy of Red Rackham's Treasure can be seen behind Paul O'Grady on the Paul O'Grady show, or it was there today anyway.

In one of the scenes in the opening titles to Hollyoaks, a copy of Michael Farr's Tintin - The Complete Companion is visible, propped up on a table.

On tonight's edition of Have I Got News For You (19th May 2006), Snowy was included in the "Odd-one-Out" round. There were some off-colour remarks on him running a brothel (!), and the usual allegations of Tintin's racism (as evidenced by regular characters Abdullah, Chang Chong-Chen, Pablo and Rastapopoulos).

Surprisingly an image they used briefly (of Snowy smoking) was taken from the colour pirate edition of Soviets.

The repeat will be shown on BBC2 at 10pm on Monday 22nd May.

In Rush's 'Show don't Tell' music video, the drummer, Neil Peart, is wearing a dark shirt with Tintin's head on it and the number 60 in the background. I'm guessing the shirt was made during Tintin's 60th anniversary then?

I was watching an old episode of The Brittas Empire, the staff are trying to hack Brittas' computer and try a number of guesses, one of which is Tintin because he has a lot of Tintin books.

I'm guessing No1fan is going to point out that a child was on junior mastermind with a specialist subject of Tintin, got 17 points! I was in the gym at the time and the sound was off (only subtitles) and the questions were tough but not that hard for a hardcore Tintin fan. I would have got them all I think, felt the asteroid he called Odonis instead of Adonis was harsh not to award a point.

Never saw if he won or not though

I think a thread like this might have existed, but I can't find it anymore. Most definitely there should be one, maybe to update this great list?

Not the most famous example, but this music video, Very Funny Guy by The Rollstons has a copy of Tibet and a Tintin doll visible in the background. Quite nice if you're into indie-pop and/or home made animations*.

*I know "a home made animation with Tintin in the background" might sound a bit alarming copyright-wise, but I don't think anyone should be worried. Those are used as stage design, bit similarly if a movie character had some Tintin memorabilia in his flat.

I don't know if this counts as Tintin is only mentioned, but in the aventure game Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon the hero tells his girlfriend that if he dies she can have his Tintin collection.

I have just watched Un Flic (1972)which was the last film directed by Jean-Pierre Melville.

Around the 50 minute mark the characters are walking through a train station in Bordeaux.
The charcters walk past a magazine kiosk which has a selection of Asterix comics and a copy of Tintin et le Mystère de La Toison d'or.

Blink and you will miss it.
