Tintin... is a person? Not the dog, Rin-tin-tin? What is WITH you Belgians? *G* And why is Peter Jackson interested?

They're doing Tintin?!? WHEEEEEE! That's fantastic! (I hope it's better than the first live-action attempt...)

*gasp*

You never read Tintin?? My brother and I would *beg* Mom to get us the next volume whenever we were promised a treat. *laughs* 'Course, some of it's less than PC now, but oh, the adventure! And we read 'em in French class too, along with Asterix. SB eats them up now; our poor battered mildewy copies. Boo has the Moon adventures in hardcover, though, which are in much better shape.

How groovy about PJ! I hope it comes off well!

You KNOW Tintin! Everybody knows Tintin! Rintintin is from Lucky Luke, way different comic. O___o Tintin has been around for ages and ages, I grew up with him.



Captain Haddock from the series was my first ever Captain love. XD Oh the rage, the rage.

Tintin is a person, though I prefer his Belgian name: Kuifje. Peter would be interested because it's one of Belgium's most well known comic book characters.
Wasn't this supposed to be a Steven Spielberg project?

Did you know Kuifje didn't actually HAVE a "kuifje" until like a couple of issues in? His hair was just flat and then there was a car chase or something somilar and it flew back into its now famous shape and it stayed like that. :D

Ahh TV, the things you teach me.

...Not knowing Tintin like not knowing Donald Duck. Or Lucky Luke, or Asterix, or Astro Boy. :D They have a large statue of the rocket from the moon adventure on the Brussels airport.

*does not know Lucky Luke*

I've only heard of Asterix because either French or Latin classes or both tend to use them. I didn't take either, but must have seen some comic books a friend had.

Astro Boy - yep, they had a show about him here. *G*

So, the question is: do Finns generally know about Tintin?
