Behind the scenes
First Appearance: Flight 714
Last Appearance: Tintin and Alph-Art(Only Yves Rodier's version)

Mik Kanrokitoff (French: Mik Ezdanitoff) appeared in Flight 714 and helped Tintin, Captain Haddock and their friends escape from the island after Roberto Rastapopoulos and his cohorts set off an explosive charge that stirred the island's volcano.


Kanrokitoff wears a small alien-made antenna and transmitter on the side of his head which enables him to communicate telepathically with other people and even subject them to mass-hypnotism. He maintains close touch with an unseen race of space aliens and acts as a bridge from Earth and other worlds. He gets the aliens to lend their spaceship so Tintin and the others to escape the island.

When Kanrokitoff sees Rastapopoulos and his cohorts fleeing the erupting volcano in a dinghy he uses his hypnotic powers to take them aboard the spaceship to an unknown fate. He then directs Tintin and his friends to take the criminals' place in the dinghy, using his hypnotism to make them forget their alien encounter.

Sometime after Tintin and his friends are put in the dinghy, Kanrokitoff brings Dr. Krollspell back to Cairo, Egypt (India in the animated series) and hypnotizes him to make him forget most of time since his disappearance about a month prior to the events of Flight 714 to Sydney.
