Great snakes! Young Tintin and his trusty canine sidekick Snowy are back for another season of heroic escapades and globe-trotting adventures when The Adventures Of Tintin, Season Two is released March 20, 2012 by Shout! Factory, in association with Corus Entertainment Inc.’s Nelvana Enterprises.

One of the most popular classic comic strips of all time, The Adventures Of Tintin tells stories of the heroic escapades of the young reporter. From a comic that first appeared in 1929 by Belgian artist Hergé, these delightful adventures were spun into books, magazines, TV and radio programs and theater productions. Originally broadcast in the U.S. on HBO, the television series The Adventures Of Tintin (1991-1993), co-produced by Nelvana and Ellipsanime Productions, follows Tintin and his loyal canine companion Snowy in solving mysteries closely based on the much-loved original stories.

The Adventures Of Tintin, Season Two tracks Tintin and Snowy everywhere from the Himalayas to the Middle East in pursuit of truth and justice. Along with the brackish Captain Haddock, skillful Professor Calculus and ham-fisted Thomson & Thompson, they investigate a mysterious meteor, exploding cars, missing persons and much more!

With a major motion picture coming to theaters in December 2011, the complete second season of this award-winning series follows The Adventures Of Tintin, Season One, released on DVD November 22, 2011.
