Just for a laugh. Hergé's Adventures of Tintin (Belvision 5 minutes TV series) anyone remember it? There were two TV series, Herge's, and the second series (90's) said to be closer to the books. But any old n bold remember either the 1960's or 1991 series with the Thompson Twins and Snowy?

Now a Movie, "Jackson and Spielberg's Adventures of Tintin!". THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN | IN THEATRES DECEMBER 23

Rumour has it that the bloke who drew the Tin Tin cartoons back in the '60's is the same bloke who wrote "Forgotten Soldier" as Guy Sajer - he is something of a local curiosity.
That would make a better film.

Sajer's wiki page mentions he drew for the French and Belgian market, using different pseudonyms.

His German wiki does mention TinTin Guy Mouminoux (Guy Sajer)

Thats the chap.
A septic captain (retired int dude who apparently knew his beans) managed to gain his confidence enough to get him answer few questions, and was convinced of his bona fides.

The Forgotten Soldier (am not pretending I know all about it) seems to have been questioned on its accuracy? Bit rich, considering the book was "held up as an excellent example of a twentieth-century footsoldier's perspective of combat", and used by two generations of septics for professional development/military history.

By the by Alsacien, Sajer was/is also Alsation ;-) hence your "local curiosity".

He comes from Wissembourg, Northern Alsace originally, which is slap on the German border, Alsacien is the French spelling of Alsatian ;-)
The book was originally published in French as Le soldat oublié as a personal account of his experiences, and is definitely a good read.
I believe the accuracy questions were finally put bed also.

Yes, yes Alsacien ;-) but who's claiming Mouminoux? The French, or the Germans? Just asking like, considering the history..

That is like saying 'Capt Pugwash' is the same as Pirates of the Caribbean? - I will go and watch it anyway looks 'citing!!\ ENDQUOTE


Good God that takes me back, sorry for the cursing and blasphemy. Good old pisstaking Pugwash (Aussie BJ perhaps?) The "Carry On" series of Children's High Seas TV :)
Master Bates, Ben Dover, Seaman Staines, and Roger the Cabin Boy - all of which have/had
absolutely no connection with any smut or double-entendres whatsoever. Of course.

Does anyone think that the filmakers will bring the new Tin Tin film really up to date? LINKY

Here's one for you In the UK Tintin version, I believe the characters were all voiced by one artist. Peter John Hawkins (3 April 1924 – 8 July 2006) .The same guy who done the first Bill and Ben, Noddy, Big Ears , Penfold, The Cybermen, TV and radio voices, and Zippy, and yes... (Pisstake) Pugwash. Confirmed by Wikipedia.

Thing about the Tintins was, the feckin names of the people in these cartoons.
