Continuity mistake: Whilst examining the wrapper with "Karaboudjan" written on it, the "K" is a centimeter away from the letter "A" and all the other letters are about a fifth of a centimeter away from the letters. Tintin then places a magnifying glass above the word "Karaboudjan". After doing this, the "K" that was a centimeter away from the "A" is now a fifth of a centimeter away from the "A", but none of the other letters seem to have changed distances.
Continuity mistake: After Tintin has leapt over from the driver's seat of his speedboat to the driver's seat of Allan's, he begins a fight with him, then they dodge a bridge by ducking. From a wide angle that shows them exiting the bridge, we can see there is nothing on the back of the speedboat. A few seconds later, Allan then punches Tintin and he falls back onto the back, only now some ropes have suddenly appeared.
Continuity mistake: When Haddock jumps onto Tintin, believing that he is a bottle of wine, Tintin's hat thing falls off his head and lands on the sand behind him. After Snowy has hit him on the head with the bone, Tintin says "The heat must be getting to you" and there is no sign of Tintin's hat thing on the sand behind him. Then as Haddock begins to run to the "water", the hat thing is back again.
Continuity mistake: After the plane has crashed, Snowy leads Tintin and Captain Haddock to the skeleton of a dead camel. Just as Haddock says "That's a camel", Tintin and Haddock are visible in the background and Haddock is shown to be standing behind Tintin. In the next shot, as Tintin says "That was a camel", Tintin and Haddock are suddenly standing level with each other.
Continuity mistake: Just after Haddock and Snowy fall to the rear end of the plane, the pilot gets up and hits Tintin over the head with a wine bottle. Tintin is then knocked unconscious and the plane is out of control. Just after Haddock yells out "Tintin! Tintin!" and the shot cuts to an exterior shot of the plane going out of control, we can see the plane is no longer in the storm, instead in clear blue skies. A few seconds later, as the pilot makes for the airlock to jump out with the parachute, the plane is suddenly back to being in the storm.
Continuity mistake: The pilot of the seaplane Tintin and Haddock capture has white skin. A few scenes later on, when Tintin and Haddock are riding through the storm, Haddock and Snowy fall backwards and the pilot suddenly has brown skin. This continues throughout the scene until after Tintin is knocked out with the wine bottle and the pilot makes for the airlock where he suddenly has white skin again.
Audio problem: In the "previously on Tintin" segment, when it recaps the three bad guys appearing to kill Daws, one of them says "You disappoint us, Daws." The voice of the person saying the line is significantly different to what was heard the in the previous episode.
Continuity mistake: The pilot of the seaplane has a mustache, and goes back to the site of the boat to see if Tintin and Haddock really are dead. When Snowy appears behind him and the pilot says "Where did you come from?", the mustache has vanished completely. Then as Tintin pulls on the pilot's leg, the mustache reappears again.
Other mistake: When the seaplane advances in on Tintin and Captain Haddock, the pilot begins to start shooting at them. The shot after this shows a POV shot where the bullets hit the water and keep getting closer to the boat. The third bullet is shown hitting part of the boat but no damage is caused.
Continuity mistake: When Tintin and Haddock discover the sea plane headed for them, Tintin states it is coming in very fast, to which Haddock replies "Not fast enough for me." As he says this, his arms are shown waving around and that his right arm is raised far above his left arm. In the sudden shot following, Haddock's arms are now completely still and are partially lowered.
Continuity mistake: When Tintin throws the planks of wood through Captain Haddock's porthole, they land on his head. Haddock turns his head and his glass of whiskey is almost full to the top. He then turns back to his table, saying "Back stabbing scallywags", and there is now less whiskey in his glass.
Continuity mistake: After Tintin runs into the storage room, he barricades the door with several crates and Allan and the three bad guys are shown trying to get in by pulling on the door handle. At the end of the shot, the door handle is pointing upwards, but in the shot of Allan and three bad guys, the other end of the door handle is completely straight.
