4.0 out of 5 stars Great set!! Oct. 29 2011
Great set of DVDs for the Tintin lovers out there. It was all the original cartoons that I had watched on tv when I was younger and the quality is decent for the year the cartoons were made. The only downfall is that it's a bit unfortunate that they are not in order because in some episodes the captain Haddock will be in them, but in the next ones he won't be, as like in the books he doesn't come in until the 7th or 8th book. So it's all right for someone who's read the books but may be confusing for those who haven't. The best way to watch them is to take the book list and watch them in the right order but then it gets annoying to always have to change the dvd; this is why I gave this product 4 stars. But other than that I would recommend to anyone. What is also great is you can choose the language; I personally watch them in French as that's the language I read them in, so it's a great feature.

5.0 out of 5 stars We have both Volume 1 and 2... May 16 2014
Verified Purchase
We have Volume 1 already and have really enjoyed watching it. There are 10 episodes in both volumes, so there is a lot of selection. I like this set because it contains the episodes that the recent Tin Tin movie (by Steven Spielberg) was based on: The Secret of the Unicorn, The Crab with the Golden Claws, and Red Rackham's Treasure. We are a French and English speaking family, so it is great that the soundtrack is available in both languages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tin Tin & Milou are Eternal !! Dec 9 2013
Verified Purchase
Excellent all the way. Originally it was advertised for "ages from seven to seventy". Nowadays one can say it to be suitable for "all ages". Highly recommended, especially for those who used to read the popular books "Les Aventures de Tintin et Milou" many years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brought back wonderful memories! March 20 2011
By A. J. Abadsafian - Published on Amazon.com
First off, I am a huge fan of Tintin and I grew up reading the comic books in middle school. When I heard about the whole series being in DVD format, I was ecstatic! I couldn't believe that my favorite comic book was in an animated series!

A few things you should know beforehand if you are planning on purchasing this volume:
* The DVDs play seamlessly on US dvd players and televisions
* The DVDs are in ENGLISH (with the option of adding english subtitles if you want to view it in its original French language)
* Each episode is approximately 42 minutes in length.
* A canadian animation company created these episodes- so expect more of a 90's style cartoon theme. (hand drawn scenes, low frame rate, kinda authentic look)
* The episodes, scenes, and characters look EXACTLY as they do in the books! It looks so professionally done, that I couldn't even find a minor flaw in the characters' appearances!
* The voices of the non-major characters fit them perfectly, however the voices of the main characters (Tintin, Haddock, Thomson & Thompson, etc) are not quite suited to their character. But that's my own opinion.
* This is volume 2/2 that you are buying. It is the only US-compatible set that is being sold on the market! Volume one is also sold by amazon and has a blue cover around it.
* On the same site you may find a "box set" of volume 1 and 2 on amazon- those are not US region and they are more expensive. The only difference is that they contain individual episodes per disc. This listing for volume 2 has 10? episodes on 3 discs (dual layered dvd) (front and back).

So with that said, now you know what you are getting when you buy the 2nd volume of The Adventures of Tintin!
Although, the animation is no Hanna-Barbera production. The frames aren't seamless, and yes, you will see some blurriness as the scenes (frames) transition. But it doesn't ruin the viewing experience at all, I must stress that! It is very seldom at times and is not very noticeable. If anything, it enhances the film by increasing its vintage look.

The voices are very well done. Though the main characters' voices don't match my preferences, they sound well done for a cartoon. No half---ed job, where its just thrown in for the English speakers. It was actually well cared for and given special attention. The characters' mouths from start to finish match the phrases they speak. And each characters' dialogue is EXACTLY how it appears in the books! Its like reading your comic book as it comes to life in front of your eyes. The scenes and dialogues in the films are so accurate to the nearest plant leaf in the background. You will not be dissapointed I guarantee it! So kudos to the Canadian animists for being accurate.

In some reviews I've read over the animated series (volumes 1 & 2), there are complaints that there is no way each Tintin story could be fit into a 42-minute cartoon. Well, if you think about it 42 minutes of a commercial-free, comic book-into a cartoon, episode is really quite long! Sure there are scenes that don't include a few frames that you would read in the comic book, but on the other hand, the animators are trying to make this into a nicely flowing movie. It would completely detract from the viewers experience if they saw the screen focus on the captain's beer bottle for 3 long seconds and then transition to snowy drinking the puddle of beer for 3 more seconds, and then the screen panning out to some minor character participating in an obscure act. It has to be flowing and relevant to the storyline. And I believe that's exactly what the animators captured with each episode.

And it should be common sense by now that movies created from books will not retain every single scene or insignificant action as written in the book. There just isn't enough time (or relevance) to do it.
I did not feel cheated by these episodes, and felt rather satisfied with my purchase! I highly recommend buying this volume 2 set if you are looking to add value to your movie collection library!
Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Here is an episode list Jan. 8 2012
By David G. Lamplugh - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The contents of Les Aventures de Tintin vol.2 (French and English spoken) are
as follows (English language titles, for I'm an English language fella)
The Crab with the Golden Claws
Tintin in Tibet
The Blue Lotus
The Calculus Affair
The Cigars of the Pharoah
The Red Sea Sharks
The Secret of the Unicorn
Red Rackham's Treasure
The Castafiore Emerald
Tintin and the Picaros
These adaptations are very faithful to the books, as far as the plots go.
Missing is the fanatical attention to detail and use of photo reference that obsessed Herge
later on in the novels. That being said, the animation is up to the standards of the time, and it
steadily improves as the series progresses (much like Herge as he took on more collaborators and found
focus in his books.)
I have included a episode list because as far as I can tell, Amazon is lacking one for this set. The internet is kinda short on episode lists as well, so cheers, everyone gets to benefit from my purchase of this wonderful set. If anybody reading this has a episode list for vol.1 (Les aventures Tintin, with royal blue cover) publishing it would be much appreciated

5.0 out of 5 stars A surprisingly strong adaptation! Aug. 9 2011
By DJ Joe Sixpack - Published on Amazon.com
------------------------------------------------
"The Adventures Of Tintin, v.1 & 2"
------------------------------------------------
These animated cartoon adaptations of the much-beloved Tintin comics books are surprisingly good. While there's a higher level of detail and craftsmanship in the original books by Herge, these cartoons capture the essence of the stories and stay true to the tone (and text) of the books, and hit many of the same comedic notes. The animation is simple but effective, and the "live" action aspect brings something new and fun to the stories -- the cartoons don't have the same immersive, mesmerizing effect as the books, but they are fun and won't disappoint most longtime Tintin fans (or their Tintin-fan parents!) Also nice is that each episode is presented in both English and French versions, which is a great educational tool for anyone who wants to learn French. The voiceovers are generally good, although I think the French voice actors are better (Captain Haddock, in particular) and the graphic design is strong, taking its cues pretty closely from the Herge originals. One downside is that the faithfulness to the Herge books means that many of the borderline racial stereotypes remain intact as well; if it's a concern, you can talk your kids through it, otherwise, if you've read the books, you know what to expect.

In a world awash in poorly-conceived, clumsily executed adaptations of great works, these cartoons stand out as gems -- exciting, engaging and amazingly true to the source material. Definitely recommended. (Joe Sixpack, ReadThatAgain children's media reviews)

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific adaptaction Sept. 7 2012
By David R. Mattson - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Having read Tintin in the French language editions, these animated renditions were utterly delightful. The voice-over artists were perfect, especially for Capt. Haddock (in the French). The English language artists were less satisfying.
Happily the creators have followed closely the story-lines of Herve's originals.
I can heartily recommend these DVDs.
