Labrador Street

Herge, the creator of Tintin, tried to avoid being too explicit about his nationality, but we all know he’s Belgian really. And we know he lives somewhere on Labrador Street, from the newspaper report in The Secret Of The Unicorn that follows a shooting outside Tintin’s home. So this should, by extension, be his street. The green-and-yellow colour scheme even matches one glimpsed in The Crab With The Golden Claws, when Thompson and Thomson (of whom more later) wave at Tintin from a café across the street soon after he leaves his house. Meanwhile, we’re not sure if that chap with the newspaper is up to no good or not, but it’s a fair bet in this series. This film, by the by, is based on elements from The Crab With The Golden Claws, The Secret Of The Unicorn and Red Rackham’s Treasure.

shameless double posting but i'd LOVE Williams to score the Tintin theme from the original cartoon show, but beef it up to an even grander scale, that would be class! More
