Out of curiosity, is the street cartoonist/caricature artist who draws our protagonist at the start of The Adventures of Tintin (2011) a "cameo" by creator Hergé?


1 Answer 1


Yes it is actually Hergé in the flea market, he has also appeared in various Tintin comic books as a cameo appearance. Here's a list of his appearances.

  • Just out of curiosity, did you notice this, while watching the movie or did you read it in a website? Jan 3, 2012 at 23:04
  • I thought it was herge while watching the movie, but confirmed it after I did a bit of google-ing. Peter Jackson and Spielberg are Tintin fanatics, so I dont think they would put some one who looks like Herge but is not herge.

    @karthik -- I am having a hard time parsing your last comment. Hergé died in 1983, so although the animated character may indeed look like Hergé, it cannot be him; he cannot have done the voice, for example, or the mocap. Jan 9, 2012 at 4:12
  • @ErnestFriedman-Hill: yes, you are right, what I meant was, they would created an animation for Herge though he was not available for the mocap. And when I meant look like I was referring to his physical appearances. Should have framed that sentence a bit clearly, my bad.
