The Adventures of Tintin is a French/Belgian/Canadian animated television series based on The Adventures of Tintin. It is based on a series of books written by Belgian cartoonist Georges Prosper Remi, known by the pen name Hergé ([ɛʁʒe]). It debuted in 1991; 39 half-hour episodes were produced over the course of its three seasons.

The series used traditional animation techniques and adhered closely to the original books, going so far as to transpose some frames from the original books directly to screen. In the episodes “Destination Moon” and “Explorers on the Moon”, 3D animation was used for the moon rocket—an unusual step in 1989. Each frame of the animation was then printed and recopied onto celluloid, hand painted in gouache, and then laid onto a painted background. The rocket seen in the title sequence is animated using the same 3D techniques. Artistically, the series chose a constant style, unlike in the books. In the books, the images had been drawn over the course of 47 years, during which Hergé's style developed considerably. However, later televised episodes, such as the “Moon Story” and “Tintin in America,” clearly demonstrated the artists' development during the course of the production of the television series. It was filmed with English language narration, but all visuals (road signs, posters, and settings) remained in French.
