Better than the 60s version,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Adventures of Tintin [DVD] (DVD)I seem to be at odds with some of the other reviewers here. I think this version from the 1990s is actually better than the version I used to watch as a child in the 1960s. The only criticism is that they seem to have been made in a different order, then re-ordered to match the sequence of the books. This occasionally produces some continuity errors. Nicely loud so you may need to turn the volume down a little.

Unlike the 60's version, I love the fact that this 90's version didn't produce new stories after they were done adapting Herges originals. This show wasn't produced to simply cash in on the North American Tintin fanbase, since there wasn't really one in NA to begin with. To many NA kids, this surprisingly accurate adaption of Tintin introduced them to the original stories, which I believe was it's intention. It's a little baffling how some can praise the 60s version, when they were widely looser with the original story lines than the 90s version ever was. I guess it all depends on what your grew up with and the nostalgic value that holds.
Though, I'm sure any sort of adaptation will be horrible no matter what happens in the eyes of some hardcore fans. We can look at "professional" reviews of Spielberg's new Tintin film, and It seems most are praising it and find it very entertaining. Yet there's always a few critics as self proclaimed super fans, and sure enough, find the adaptation the worst abomination since Plan 9 From Outer Space.

You're not alone! As a kid I was a massive fan of the books and thought the 60's animations a travesty. I still do. This set is infinitely superior in quality and fidelity to the spirit and letter of the originals

I have no idea why they did not release Hergé's Adventures of Tintin on DVD apart from The Calculus Case AKA The Calculus Affair
