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)

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.

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

Question: When Tintin and the King discover King Ottokar's scepter had been stolen, both Hector and the guards are shown to have been knocked out. Later, Tintin points out that Hector had stolen the scepter by placing it in a camera, put it next to the window and shot it out of the window using the camera. If that's how Hector managed to get the scepter out of the building, then what was it that caused Hector and the guards to get knocked out? (00:33:10 - 00:35:50)

Chosen answer: If Hector was seriously intent on removing King Ottokar's scepter from the glass cage holding it and launching it through the window with the camera, then Hector would have been forced to knock out the two guards so they would not have interfered with Hector's plan as soon as he removed the scepter from the glass. As for Hector, himself, was explained when Tintin was explaining how Hector stole the scepter. Tintin placed a twig inside the camera and it launched out of the camera. Hector would have placed the scepter inside of the camera, and would have been knocked unconscious due to the spring effect created when the scepter had been launched.
