Hergé More: Creator of Tintin
Date of Birth
22 May 1907, Brussels, Belgium

Date of Death
3 March 1983, Brussels, Belgium (pulmonary failure)

Birth Name
Georges Prosper Remi 

Georges Prosper Remi Or Herge Creator of Tintin Comics

Born under the name Georges Remi on May 22, 1907 in Brussels, Belgium. As a child, Herge had a gift for drawing but never had any formal training in the visual arts. He attended both school and the boy scouts during the World War 1 and post-World War 1 Era. After he finished school Herge published his first ever cartoon: "The Adventures of Totor" for Le Boy-Scout Belge (a scouting magazine).

In 1928, he became in charge of the producing material for Le Petit Vingtieme (The Little Twentieth) a youth supplement newspaper. He began illustrating "The Adventures of Flup", "Nenesse", "Poussette", "Cochonnet", etc. January 10, 1929, Herge introduced a cartoon about a traveling Belgium reporter (Tintin) accompanied by his fox terrier (Snowy) traveling the Soviet Union. By 1930, Herge published the very first Tintin book: "Tintin in the Land of the Soviets". Tintin soon became Herge's "ligne Claire" (French for clear line) legacy.

The later adventures of Tintin involved other locations of the world from China all the way to America. Within the next 50 years Tintin became one of the most popular European comics of the 20th Century, due to its well-researched plots, appealing characters, humor, political thrillers, & real world settings. After completing 23 books, Herge passed away on March 3, 1983, leaving "Tintin & the Alpha-Art" (The 24th book) unfinished. Despite Herge not being able to give his Tintin series the proper end, all of his works along with Tintin will continue to inspire artists and enchant readers from the years to come.

Childhood of Herge:
Georges Prosper Remi was born at 7:30 in the morning of 22 May 1907 in his parents' home in Etterbeek, Brussels, a central suburb in the capital city of Belgium. His parents were middle class; his father, the Wallonian Alexis Remi, worked in a candy factory, whilst his mother, the Flemish Elisabeth Dufour, was a homemaker.They had been married on 18 January 1905, and moved into a house at 25, de la rue Cranz (now 33, rue Philippe Baucq), where Hergé would later be born, although a year later they moved to a house at 34, rue de Theux. His primary language was his father's French, but growing up in the bilingual Brussels, he also learned how to speak Flemish, developing a Marollien accent from his maternal grandmother.Like the majority of Belgians at that time, his family belonged to the Roman Catholic Church, though were not particularly devout. He would later characterise his life in Etterbeek as being dominated by a monochrome gray, and would always remember it as having been extremely boring.

"My childhood was extremely ordinary. It happened in a very average place, with average events and average thoughts. For me, the poet's "green paradise" was rather gray... My childhood, my adolescence, Boy Scouting, military service – all of it was gray. Neither a sad boyhood nor a happy one – rather a lackluster one."

It was in these early years that Remi developed a love of cinema, particularly favouring Windsor McCay's pioneering animated film Gertie the Dinosaur and the films featuring Charlie Chaplin, Harry Langdon and Buster Keaton; his later work in the comic strip medium would display an obvious influence from these early films in style and content. Remi also immersed himself in literature, in particular enjoying the novels of British and American authors, such as Huckleberry Finn, Treasure Island, Robinson Crusoe and The Pickwick Papers. Despite this preference for Anglophone works, he also read a number of French novels, such as General Dourakine, Twenty Years After and The Vicomte of Bragelonne: Ten Years Later.He took to drawing as a hobby, sketching out stories and scenes from his daily life along the edges of his school books. Some of these illustrations were of German soldiers, because his four years of primary schooling at the Ixelles Municipal School No. 3 coincided with World War I (1914–1918), during which Brussels was occupied by the German Empire.

Tintin and His Friends and Other Characters From Different Comics

In 1920 his secondary education began at Saint-Boniface School, an institution controlled by the archbishop where the teachers were Roman Catholic priests. Aged 12, Georges joined the Boy Scouts troop of the school, where he was given the totemic name "Renard curieux" (Curious fox).In 2007, an old "strip" by Hergé was found on a wall of the school. His first drawings were published in 1922 in Jamais assez, the school's Scout paper, and in Le Boy-Scout Belge, the Scout monthly magazine.From 1924, he signed his illustrations using the pseudonym "Hergé". His subsequent comicbook work would be heavily influenced by the ethics of the Scouting movement, as well as his early travel experiences with the scouting association.

Herge Creation Tintin:
 Tintin, a punk-haired teenage reporter and super-sleuth, in 1929 in the children's supplement of the Belgian Catholic newspaper "Le Vingtième Siecle." Tintin moved into his own magazine in 1946. Twenty-three complete stories were produced, plus one story that was incomplete at the time of Hergé's death. Tintin became the Belgian equivalent of Mickey Mouse, popular in every country around the world except for the United States.

Herge and his famous Cartoon Character Tintin (Idol)

His pseudonym is the French phonetic pronunciation of the letters "R" and "G," taken from "Remi" and "Georges."

Directly inspired a number of contemporary cartoonists, including Joost Swarte and Dennis Tucker.

Threesome Awesome Tintin Haddock and Dog Snowy

In 1989, an Anarchist graphic novel titled "Breaking Free" was published in Britain, featuring unauthorized appearances of Hergé's characters Tintin and Captain Archibald Haddock as the main protagonists. The political propaganda story is of Tintin and Haddock as Union laborers who join a revolutionary movement that, at the novel's end, is about to topple the British government (Hergé himself held very conservative political views and probably would have been horrified by this). Since the book was intentionally published without copyright, no legal action could be taken against the creators or publishers.

Was inspired by Jules Verne's work.

"The Adventures of Tintin" has been translated into more than 50 languages around the world.

Has written & drawn a total of 23 complete and 1 incomplete volumes of "The Adventures of Tintin" series.

Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein citing him as a strong influence on their work.

In 1982, Belgian Society of Astronomy named a small planetoid, situated between Mars and Jupiter, after him.

Didn't draw Tintin's famous quiff until the second album. In the first album, Tintin's hair was combed to the front, but during a chase scene in a vintage Mercedes convertible, Tintin's hair flew back, thus giving him his trademark quiff.

Imaginary Cartoon Where Tintin Draw His own Creator Herge

His inspiration for his famous cartoon character "Tintin" came from the adventures in 1928 of a young 15 year old Danish boy, later actor, Palle Huld who won a contest in the newspaper "Politiken". The prize was an around the world trip in the occasion of the centennial of author Jules Verne. Palle Huld wrote a book about his marvelous trip; "Around the World in 44 Days with Palle" which became world famous and thus inspired Hergé.

Tintin: Character

3D Picture of Tintin Created by Me (Manash Kundu)
Hergé drew inspiration for his star character from the career of the French foreign correspondent Albert Londres. A pioneer of investigative journalism, Londres traveled the world to uncover the truth behind business, politics, governments and the criminal underworld. Tintin represented the reporter that Hergé himself would have liked to be An instant icon

Tintin’s features are simple: a round head, a button for a nose, two dots for eyes and a quiff. This is the key to his success. He is flexible, distinctive yet anonymous: any child or adult, of any age or culture, can identify with him.

Although he starts out as an investigative reporter, Tintin develops into a detective. Snowy and others regularly refer to him as Sherlock Holmes, and he has a good deal of the famous English detective about him, including a sharp eye for detail and considerable powers of deduction. Like Holmes, Tintin is a master of disguise!
An all-around expert

A bit like James Bond, there is no car, motorcycle, locomotive, submarine, airplane, helicopter, horse or camel that Tintin cannot drive, ride, steer or fly. In Tintin in the Land of the Soviets, he carves an airplane propeller from a tree using a pocketknife. In Cigars of the Pharaoh, he fashions a wooden trumpet with which to communicate with the elephants. No matter what situation Tintin finds himself in, he’s never at a loss for what to do.

Tintin wholeheartedly embraces the role of the explorer, which culminates in his most memorable achievement — taking the first steps on the moon, some 16 years before the American astronaut Neil Armstrong. By this time, it is clear that Tintin has ceased to report news and is instead making it.

Snowy : Tintin`s Dog

3D Picture of Tintin and His Famous Dog Snowy . Created by me (Manash Kundu)

Snowy is Tintin’s faithful companion, traversing continents with his adventurous master and saving his life on numerous occasions. Throughout all 24 Tintin adventures, reporter and dog are inseparable. Real-life inspiration Hergé chose a fox terrier as Tintin’s canine companion. At the time, the fox terrier was popular for its character and intelligence — attributes abundantly evident in Snowy. Additionally, the landlord of a restaurant Hergé frequented was the proud owner of a fox terrier, and his dog became the inspiration for Snowy. In all likelihood, however, the landlord’s dog didn’t talk. In that way, Snowy is very much his own dog!

Snowy holds a bone
While heroic and intelligent, Snowy is still very much a dog. In The Shooting Star, he lies contentedly asleep, his stomach full of sausages. In The Black Island, he picks up a roast chicken from the British Rail restaurant car as Tintin rushes through in pursuit of villains. When faced with the choice between saving his companion and enjoying a delicious bone in King Ottokar’s Sceptre, Snowy hesitates just a bit before he chooses Tintin and saves the day.

Captain Haddock:

When Captain Haddock makes his debut in The Crab with the Golden Claws, he makes quite an impression. First, he nearly puts an end to Tintin by burning the oars of their lifeboat to keep warm. As if that weren’t enough, he cracks Tintin over the head with a bottle as he’s piloting an aircraft, causing it to crash in the desert. Despite this inauspicious beginning, the captain goes on to become Tintin’s closest friend.

As the stories progress, Captain Haddock proves himself to be much more than a clumsy, hotheaded sea captain with a colorful vocabulary. He is clearly a highly competent mariner and navigator, and his years of experience on the high seas prove invaluable in numerous adventures, including The Red Sea Sharks.

Real-life inspiration

While Hergé admitted that there was a good deal of himself in Haddock, he also acknowledged that there was a measure of his colleague, Edgar-Pierre Jacobs, who had helped him adapt the Tintin books into color. As Hergé explained it, both Jacobs and Captain Haddock were “gruff, capable of expansive gestures and prone occasionally to minor mishaps.”

As Hergé was considering names for his new character, he asked his wife, Germaine, what she had cooked for dinner. She told him, “a sad English fish — haddock.” Hergé thought it a perfect name for Tintin’s new mariner friend.

Swearing (un)like a sailor

Captain HaddockCaptain Haddock is famous for his imaginative and educational insults. In The Crab with the Golden Claws, the first adventure in which Haddock makes his appearance, he loses his temper with marksmen who have shattered his bottle of whiskey. His fury is unleashed in a torrent of colorful expletives: “Swine!….Jellyfish!….Tramps!….Troglodytes!….Toffee-noses!….Savages!….Aztecs!….Toads!….Carpet-sellers!…. Iconoclasts!….Rats!…. Ectoplasms!…. Freshwater swabs!….Bashibazouks!….Cannibals!…. Caterpillars!…. Cowards!….Baboons!….Parasites!…. Pockmarks!”

Professor Calculus:

In Red Rackham’s Treasure, Hergé introduces an endearing character who becomes close friends with Tintin and Captain Haddock for the rest of the adventures: 
 Professor Calculus.

Red Rackham’s Treasure, Hergé introduces  Professor  Calculas

Professor Calculus is an eccentric scientist, engineer and inventor who is as clever as he is absentminded. Despite his very slight physique, he claims to have been a sportsman in his youth, leading Captain Haddock to mockingly refer to him as the “Olympic athlete.”

In this Comics Scientist Calculus Helped Tintin and Haddock for Journey To Moon

Although he is a capable scientist, Professor Calculus also practices the unproven method of divining using a pendulum. This mainly succeeds in infuriating Captain Haddock; however, though his odd approach does prove to have some merit in Red Rackham’s Treasure.
Real-life inspiration

 Professor Calculus

Professor Calculus Hergé’s model for Professor Calculus was a Swiss scientist named Auguste Piccard, who was a professor of physics at the University of Brussels from 1922 to 1954. Professor Piccard became famous in 1931, when he took off in a balloon of his own design and traveled 10 miles up into the atmosphere, higher than anyone else had reached before.

In This Comics Calculus Was Kidnapped by the Enemy Country for his new Invention. Tintin and Captain Haddock Rescue Him.

Professor Calculus shares many character traits with the Swiss scientist, and even wears the same style of clothing as Piccard. The main difference between the men is in size: Professor Calculus is much shorter. As Hergé himself said, “I made Calculus a mini-Piccard, otherwise I would have had to enlarge the comic strip frames!”

Thomson & Thompson

Thomson & Thompson
Thomson & Thompson, the world’s clumsiest policemen, make their first appearance in Cigars of the Pharaoh. Apart from Tintin and Snowy, they are the longest-running characters in the series, appearing in 20 of the 24 Tintin books.

In this Comics Thomson & Thompson drink a liquid which caused ever growing hairs

Despite the fact that they spend most of their time failing to solve crimes, dressing up in hopeless disguises and falling flat on their faces, Thomson and Thompson always end up on Tintin’s side, even if they do have to arrest him first!
Real-life inspiration

Thomson & Thompson

Thomson & ThompsonHergé’s father, Alexis Remi, had a twin brother named Léon. The brothers sometimes dressed in similar hats and suits when they went out together with walking sticks in hand. They even liked to repeat the French equivalent of Thomson & Thompson’s catchphrase: “To be precise!” It seems that the men’s antics made an impression on the young Georges Remi.

The dim-witted detectives bring the slapstick comedy of Charlie Chaplin — whose films Hergé knew well — to the world of Tintin. As the reporter’s adventures continue, Thomson & Thompson’s whining and petty arguing bring to mind another pair of bowler-hatted buffoons: Laurel and Hardy!
