The Seven Crystal Balls is a two-part episode in The Adventures of Tintin, produced by Ellipse-Nelvana, based on the book of the same name by Hergé.

Changes from the Book

The episode begins with the Seven Explorers of the Sanders-Hardiman Expedition finding the Mummy of Rascar Capac, whereas it it just referenced in the book.

Following the chronology of the books, Jolyon Wagg doesn't appear until The Calculus Affair, but as the TV series episodes of The Calculus Affair, which aired before The Seven Crystal Balls, Jolyon's appearance is credible when the episodes are viewed in that order.

Voice cast

Production errors

  • When Tintin borrow's Haddock's binoculars and uses them, part of General Alcazar's strap is missing.
  • As the yellow ball comes in through the chimney and goes around Professor Calculus, it show's him sitting next to the fireplace when it should be Rascar Capac. (The animation of this segment differs from that of the intro, given that the intro uses test animation.)
  • At the end of part one when Tintin states that the curse of Rascar Capac has come true, Inspector Chambers' coat is navy. Similarly, his hair is black when he falls after breaking the door down.
