Hergé (22 May 1907 - 3 March 1983), the creator of Tintin, makes a number of cameo appearances influenced by film directors Alfred Hitchcock and Sir Peter Jackson (the producer of The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn).

The Adventures of Tintin (an animated series adaptation of the books from Meuthen & Little Brown, as produced by the French-Canadian company Ellipse-Nelvana), these brief appearances are not sporadic throughout the episodes, but he was rather featured in all of the episodes.
