Trivia: The portrait that Tintin sits for at the start of the movie is a perfect rendition of how Hergé drew him in the books. Also if you note as Tintin gets up to leave, many of the characters from all of the books Hergé wrote are in a big collage in the background.

Trivia: The film did not do well in the United States because the comics are almost unknown in America.

Trivia: This was the first non-Pixar film to win the Golden Globe Award for Best Animated Picture.

Factual error: Tintin says they only have one bullet left. That bullet is in the magazine,and since it is a semi automatic, there should also be one in the chamber, meaning they would have two bullets. Even if they only had that paticular bullet, he doesn't cock the gun, meaning the chamber would be empty and therefore wouldn't fire.

Question: At the apartment, Tintin can't find his magnifying glass and Snowy finds it for him. He says "Thank you" like he's annoyed at him. If he is annoyed at him, why is this?

Chosen answer: He must have thought that Snowy had found the magnifying glass and was playing with it. Like most dogs would do with a toy.
