Tintin on PBS
0

Tomorrow night PBS is airing Tintin and I, a documentary on Hergé and his world-famous creation. Like the recently completed World Cup (anyone want to explain that head butt to me? I'm dying to find out what was said...), Tintin has always been bigger on the rest of the planet than in the USA. There was an attempt to break in American audiences with an animated HBO show in the 90's, where I believe they pronounced his name Tin-Tin, instead of the correct Ten-Ten, but then this was the pre-Sopranos HBO (if you can remember such a thing). I digress. You can read more on the doc here, and although I haven't seen it, it seems like a great exploration into one of the most important comic creations of the 20th century.
