Changes from the Book
In the adaptation the impostor of Professor Hector Alembick smokes while the latter doesn't. This is the reverse in the book. In the book, Tintin was chased by border guards and accidentally crossed the border because he got hungry, while in the TV episode Tintin accidentally crossed the border because he found a Bordurian airfield. In the book, Tintin got the clue that the camera was faked from a toy store, while in the episode Tintin got the clue by looking outside Kropow Castle and seeing some cannons.
Also King Muskar XII is renamed "King Ottokar XII."
