Tintin and the Picaros: Part 1 - S2-E8

Continuity mistake: As Haddock cleans his teeth, the news on the radio states that Castafiore was arrested so Haddock spits out his gargling water. Some of the water and toothpaste goes over his beard. But when he runs into Tintin's room, his beard is as dry as a bone, with no toothpaste in sight. (00:03:10)

Tintin in Tibet: Part 2 - S2-E7

Continuity mistake: Haddock becomes exhausted and sits down. Tintin points out he'll freeze. Watch the two horizontal strips along the middle of his jacket. They are yellow for a few frames, then they go to blue for a few frames. Then if you look super carefully, you'll see that the two straps vanish from shot for a quick sneaky frame. Then they reappear. (00:29:10)

Continuity mistake: When Haddock goes to cut the rope, he ends up dropping his Swiss army knife. As it drops, the knife has a small ridge in it for opening with a thumbnail. In the following shot, when it is shown falling, the knife is still facing the same direction, but the ridge is no longer visible. Then in the next shot, the ridge is back again. (00:27:15)

Tintin in Tibet: Part 1 - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When Tharkey re-enters the plane where he and Haddock made camp, Haddock asks "Any sign of him?" Tharkey replies and you'll see the sky in the background is grey due to the storm. Shot cuts to a wide angle where night suddenly comes from outside of the window. (00:16:55)

Tintin in Tibet: Part 1 - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: Just after Haddock finishes saying "That's not my idea of a vacation," he goes to read his newspaper. On the front page of this newspaper is a headline that reads "Ray Jones." About seven seconds after this happens, the shot returns to Haddock where we can see the headline is now twice as small as it was before. (00:01:55)

Tintin in Tibet: Part 1 - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: When Haddock points out to Tintin he was dreaming about the crash on the news, the background shows a pitch black sky (around 11 o'clock sky). Yet a further two shots later, the background shows a partially lighter sky (still night, around 7 o'clock). (00:03:55)
