Tin!" is how each episode of this, the first animated Tintin TV series began. This short-lived series was produced by Larry Harmon of Bozo fame and only lasted a single season making this an extremely rare piece of animation art. "Destination Moon" was one of only eight stories adapted for the short-lived series. Tintin is held at gunpoint by his sworn enemy Colonel Boris Jorgen in this original hand-inked, hand-painted production cel which can be seen around the 1:02:00. The two characters together measure 6.5" x 6" on a 12 field cel presented over a one-of-a-kind hand-painted production background. They are taped together along the edges with masking tape. The piece shows minor handling and condition is Very Good.
