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

Continuity mistake: Tintin is locked in a room tied up to two pipes. There is rope around his torso and ankles which is connected to the pipes above and even his arms are tied up, connected to the pipes behind him. Allan then enters the room and the rope that was connecting his arms to the pipe is now nowhere in sight. It is partially visible for a few frames, but then vanishes for the rest of the shot. Then when the shot cuts to Tintin, there is suddenly rope wrapped all around the pipe behind him. (00:12:35)

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. (00:05:15)

Explorers on the Moon: Part 1 - S3-E11

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. (00:16:30)
