The Adventures of Tintin

Destination Moon: Part 2 - S3-E10

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. (00:25:00)

The Shooting Star - S2-E1

Deliberate mistake: Captain Haddock finds out the SOS was a fake so he tells the engine room to increase speed. Just after they increase speed and Tintin says "The people financing the Peary", we can tell the boat isn't moving since the background is entirely still and not moving an inch. (00:14:45)

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

Deliberate mistake: After Francis Haddock kills Red Rackham, he lights a fuse to the explosives. The fuse that was lit is only a foot long, yet he is somehow able to climb out the ship without anyone noticing, get into a boat and swim all the way to land before it explodes. At a foot long it would have exploded in 10 - 15 seconds, all of that would taken at least 10 minutes. (00:18:45)

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

Trivia: There is a mistake pointing out that the newspaper at the end is a flipped shot. If you flip it the right way round, you will see on the right hand side of the article the word "Spielberg" on one of the lines, a reference to director Steven Spielberg. Steven Spielberg went on to direct the Tintin movie Secret of the Unicorn in 2011. (00:43:35)
