Tintin and the Picaros: Part 1 - S2-E8

Character mistake: When the bell on Haddock's clock rings, there is a shot showing the clock with the time on 8:00. All of the numbers used to represent the time shown on the clock are written in roman numerals, however, the roman numeral for the 8 shown on the clock is written out as VI. Eight in roman numerals should be VIII. (00:01:45)

Other mistake: After Manolo has told Haddock that the windows don't open, Manolo goes to leave and slips on a banana placed in the doorway. The banana's position in the doorway would not be possible. The banana landed on the floor after Haddock fell over the table in the hotel room and spilled the contents of the fruit bowl all of the room and then Manolo entered the room a second later. When Manolo opened the door, he would have pushed anything in front of the door out of the way. (00:10:25)

Continuity mistake: Whilst Tintin and Haddock are discussing how to escape the hotel, a record player is playing so no-one who is watching the conversation can hear them. When Pablo arrives with the drinks and sets them on the table, the record player is visible in the background and not moving, though the music is still heard. Pablo then goes to turn up the music, and the record player is suddenly moving again. (00:12:40)

Revealing mistake: After Haddock snaps the door to the window, the big guy enters the room pointing a gun at Haddock. The shot then cuts to Haddock with fruit all over the place. Look to the left of screen and you'll an apple laid on top of another apple completely unnaturally. (00:10:00)

Revealing mistake: After Tintin, Haddock and Calculus meet Colonel Alvarez, they are seen driving through downtown in a car. Watch the people, buildings and posters on the sidewalk. Each time the shot cuts, it is always the exact same people. Exact same buildings. And exact same posters on the sidewalk. Also, as Calculus starts talking, the same thing has been done again, except the background is different. (00:07:05)

Revealing mistake: The shot prior to the plane landing shows a village of people where some of them are in the background watching the plane. You'll see a blonde guy in the foreground with messed up elbow animation. It keeps jiggling all over the place. (00:05:55)

Revealing mistake: Just after Tintin says "The last I heard he was hiding in the jungle trying to organize the resistance", a shot is shown of the plane window flying over the clouds with a shadow on the clouds. The plane flies over a cloud with part of it missing and for one frame only, the shadow is seen going over the part of the cloud that was missing. (00:05:40)

Other mistake: When Haddock turns off the TV after watching the report, he pushes the middle of the screen which turns the TV off. Pushing the TV at this angle would make him touch the TV screen, not a button to turn it off. (00:04:45)

Continuity mistake: At the start of the scene where Tintin and Haddock watch General Tapioca, the TV is colored light brown. When General Tapioca states that Tintin, Haddock and Calculus are invited, the TV is suddenly maroon. (00:04:00 - 00:04:30)

Continuity mistake: When Tintin and Haddock watch Tapioca talking about them, a shot shows the TV's logo with a rectangle-shaped outline around the box. When Haddock advances on the TV in the next shot, the outline isn't there anymore. (00:04:00)

Continuity mistake: When Tintin and Haddock watch a report of Tapioca yelling about them, loads of wavy lines go along the screen. When the shot ends, no wavy static lines are visible on the screen. Instantly in the next shot, the wavy static lines suddenly appear. (00:04:05)
