Tintin in America is a one-part episode of The Adventures of Tintin, produced by Ellipse-Nelvana, based on the book of the same name by Hergé. This was the final episode in the show's third season, which was also the final season making this the last episode screened.

Changes from the Book

This episode was the most altered, resulting in almost a completely new story. The plight of the Native Americans was completely removed, and the gangster element was given the main focus. Bobby Smiles, in the book the head of a rival gang to Al Capone, becomes an "employee" of Capone's in the televised episode. Al Capone himself is given a bigger role as the President of all the Criminals led by him. Artistically, the episode was produced to the same standard as the others, with backgrounds having greater detail, than the comic and more cinematic shots.
