Explorers on the Moon: Part 1 - S3-E11

Other mistake: Wolff is explaining that if the motor is shut off again, the magnetic sole boots they are wearing will stop them from floating. Whilst he is explaining this, he is placing the boot straps over the Velcro. The first strap he places is only partially on, but a few frames after, a blip occurs in the animation, and the strap is suddenly entirely over the Velcro. The same happens with the second strap as well. (00:08:00)

Prisoners of the Sun: Part 1 - S3-E5

Other mistake: After the man on the ship tells Tintin that Calculus' punishment is death, he yells for Alonzo, and Tintin then punches him. When the man is punched, it is apparent that Tintin's fist never even enters the frame. There appears to be a flash effect indicating that he had been punched, but Tintin's fist is never shown hitting him. (00:07:05)

The Red Sea Sharks: Part 2 - S3-E2

Other mistake: Tintin and Haddock discover that part of the ship is on fire and discover a group of people hiding out under the deck. Haddock then lowers a ladder, down below the deck, so that the others can climb out, but even after every single person down below decks climbs out, the fire has not extended or grown further in any way, even after the time spent letting all the people out.

Flight 714: Part 2 - S2-E13

Other mistake: In order for Rastapopoulos to break into the secret passageway, he places chunks of dynamite around the idol, then lights a fuse for each individual chunk of dynamite, all burning at the same time. The fuse for the dynamite near the middle of the idol is significantly shorter than the fuses for the others. Despite this, it still takes the exact same amount of time for all three to burn down. (00:34:00)

Land of Black Gold: Part 2 - S2-E11

Other mistake: When Tintin and the Emir are talking with the military adviser, the Emir holds a box of cigars and lets the military adviser take one out of the box. The military adviser then takes out one of the cigars from the box, but the amount of cigars in the box remains the same. (00:27:50)

Land of Black Gold: Part 2 - S2-E11

Other mistake: When Mueller is at his desk, writing, a fly comes into his view. Just before the fly appears in view of him, he is writing on his paper, but he is just shown writing in the exact same spot and nothing ever appears on the paper. (00:33:55)

Tintin and the Picaros: Part 1 - S2-E8

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)

Tintin and the Picaros: Part 2 - S2-E9

Other mistake: When Haddock is in the lake, he is sinking, struggling to stay above the water and the water is even going up to his neck area. Tintin then goes into the lake to fetch Haddock and then stands in the exact same area where Haddock is up to his neck in the water, but the water only goes as far as Tintin's knees. (00:26:40)

Red Rackham's Treasure - S1-E5

Other mistake: Professor Calculus brings the parts for two shark submarines (he stated in the scene prior he would bring two) to the docks in two separate crates. The crates he uses to hold the submarine parts in would not big enough to hold the entirety of the submarine. The crates shown are only a couple of feet wide and even smaller in height, but the shark submarines shown in the episode are much larger than the overall size of the crate. (00:06:50)

Casual Person

Tintin and the Picaros: Part 2 - S2-E9

Other mistake: A monkey throws a bottle of whiskey from a tree which then lands on Haddock's head. When they show the bottle on Haddock's head, the bottle is shown stuck to his head, but there is nothing there actually making the bottle stick. (00:25:35)
