Long before Tintin got all famous in Malaysia ( thanks to the animated movie out recently and watched by many I'm sure) my brother was a great fan of Captain Haddock. I read all of the comics and liked only a few. The brother on the other hand was ( in retrospect unhealthily ) obsessed with Haddock to the point of adapting " blistering barnacles" to most things . And also to wearing a cap wherever ( except for school) I think if memories serves me right, he had a spell of wearing his cap to bed as well. I watched Tintin on China airlines. Enjoyed it very very much.
