The Castafiore Emerald 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

Unlike the book, when Castafiore arrives, she still gifts Captain Haddockwith the parrot Iago, but the parrot's part is significantly downplayed. As such, the bird does not manage to pick up much of the Haddock’s verbal slang, sparing the Captain  from further annoyance.

Voice cast


  • When Bianca Castafiore starts singing for the television show in Part 1, Wagner's moustache is not coloured in.
