Destination Moon: Part 2 - S3-E10

New this month Deliberate mistake: The shot of the plane landing in Syldavia at the start of the episode, after the recap of part one, is merely the exact same shot of the plane landing in Syldavia at the start of the previous episode. Note the vehicles on the ground are completely identical and the plane, as well as its movements are also identical.

Destination Moon: Part 2 - S3-E10

New this month Revealing mistake: When Calculus is showing Tintin and Haddock around the rocket, they are in the deck below. Tintin and Calculus have already climbed down the ladder and Haddock is still climbing. Whilst Haddock is climbing down, the button on the back of his space suit vanishes for one frame.

Explorers on the Moon: Part 1 - S3-E11

New this month Continuity mistake: Wolff is explaining that if the motor is shut off again, the magnetic sole boots they are wearing will stop them from floating. Whilst he is explaining this, he is placing the boot straps over the Velcro. The first strap he places is only partially on, but a few frames after, a blip occurs in the animation, and the strap is suddenly entirely over the Velcro. The same happens with the second strap as well.

Explorers on the Moon: Part 1 - S3-E11

New this month Plot hole: Where did Thomson and Thompson get the pyjamas from? Tintin, Haddock, Calculus and Wolff did not bring any pyjamas aboard the shuttle with them because they were planning on sleeping in their clothes and Thomson and Thompson were only on the rocket because they were inspecting it before take-off, so they wouldn't have brought anything with them.

Destination Moon: Part 1 - S3-E9

New this month Continuity mistake: To launch the model rocket into outer space, Tintin pushes a lever with a green handle. Once the control tower is told to engage the nuclear motor, the first lever that Tintin had pushed is now a blue lever and the second lever that Tintin is now holding onto is a grey lever. Two shots after that, both the levers are now green.

Destination Moon: Part 1 - S3-E9

New this month Revealing mistake: When the countdown to engage the nuclear reactor on the model rocket has reached zero, Tintin pushes the second lever. It is apparent that Tintin is not actually holding onto a lever, but merely the animation is just drawn in a way to make it appear that he is. The green ball shown on top of the lever is not in the shape of a ball, but is really just the colour green that has been filled in through the gap between Tintin's thumb and finger. The lever doesn't even resemble a ball shape as it should.

Prisoners of the Sun: Part 1 - S3-E5

New this month Revealing mistake: When Tintin is swimming back to the boat after escaping the ship, Haddock is quickly rowing back and forth to reach him in time. As Haddock rows, the bars used to place the oars through can be seen moving back and forth, along with the movements of the oars, even though the bars are supposed to remain still during the oar movements. There are also frames from this shot where the bars vanish from the frame entirely as Haddock rows.

Prisoners of the Sun: Part 1 - S3-E5

New this month Other mistake: After the man on the ship tells Tintin that Calculus' punishment is death, he yells for Alonzo, and Tintin then punches him. When the man is punched, it is apparent that Tintin's fist never even enters the frame. There appears to be a flash effect indicating that he had been punched, but Tintin's fist is never shown hitting him.

The Castafiore Emerald: Part 1 - S3-E7

New this month Revealing mistake: When Castafiore is showing everyone the Castafiore emerald, after she says "He named it in my honour", the shot cuts to a close-up of her hand, saying "The Castafiore Emerald." At the start of the shot, she has two rings on two fingers, then she turns her hand and the two rings vanish from her fingers entirely.

The Castafiore Emerald: Part 2 - S3-E8

New this month Revealing mistake: When they are watching the news broadcast on Calculus' high definition television set, after the news broadcaster mentions Castafiore's stolen jewel, Castafiore says "He's talking about me." The mole on her cheek appears and vanishes from her face whilst she is saying the line, revealing a slip-up in the animation.

The Crab with the Golden Claws: Part 2 - S1-E2

Other mistake: At the end, the newspaper with Tintin and Captain Haddock in is an obviously flipped shot.

King Ottokar's Sceptre: Part 2 - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: When Tintin says "If they see me with the scepter they'll know something's wrong", the scepter is visible in his right pocket. 2 shots later, it isn't visible in the pocket. Then it's visible when the shot cuts again.

King Ottokar's Sceptre: Part 2 - S2-E5

Continuity mistake: The piece of wood the detectives throw at the window has a straight Y shape. In shots of the wood on the ground, the Y is much more outstretched compared to other shots.

King Ottokar's Sceptre: Part 2 - S2-E5

The Blue Lotus: Part 2 - S1-E9

Revealing mistake: There's a shot where there's tons of people walking beside the train. The people that walk by repeat as the same people 2 times.

The Calculus Affair: Part 2 - S1-E13

Character mistake: After reaching the border, Snowy finds an umbrella and Tintin states that it is Calculus's umbrella. It isn't Calculus's umbrella - Calculus's umbrella has a brown handle, and this one has a grey handle.

The Crab with the Golden Claws: Part 1 - S1-E1

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.

The Secret of the Unicorn: Part 1 - S1-E3

Other mistake: When Tintin attempts to break down Captain Haddock's door, there is no key lock hole on the front of the door, but there is a key lock hole on the back of the door.

The Crab with the Golden Claws: Part 1 - S1-E1

Other mistake: During the first shot of Captain Haddock, there is a shot of his table with cards. You can see there are three of the same card (a red ace) on the table. Even if it's one heart and one diamond there's still an extra.
