This time he’s after Red Rackham’s treasure! The pirate Red Rackham?! I thought that was just an old sea tale I’ll tell you the rest later Listen to this, Captain! Although more than likely just an old sea tale, Sources say the treasure hunt’s full speed ahead Tintin and the Captain Haddock could not be reached for comment Comment!? I’ll give them comments! Parasitic snoops! Headline hedonists! Word hungry mongers Yes? Good day! I’d like to speak to Mr. Tintin, please
I’ll get him. Hang on! He’s gone? Oh dear…! Hhh.. Maybe another time – Wait! Can I help you? Mr. Tintin, how do you do! My name is Professor Calculus Cuthbert Calculus I understand you’re off for the treasure hunt soon So? Have you considered the sharks? Sharks! They’re very dangerous creatures, you know! That’s why I invented an anti-shark submersible I’m sorry, Mr. Calculus I don’t have the time for this Yes, tomorrow is fine No, Sir! I’m sorry! The answer is no! Right now? Of course, let’s go! I’m so glad you agreed to come, gentlemen This is amazing! This way please! Ahh… what the! It’s a clothes brushing machine Walla! A shark submarine! My shark-proof submarine is an exploring machine, gentlemen Let me explain It can dive up to 900 feet It travels at a speed of up to 6 knots and has a 2 hour oxygen supply I’ll show you how it works Oh dear! I’m sorry, professor but your machine won’t do…! For two? A two seater? No… it won’t do! Good-bye Bye I’ll see you tomorrow! Okay, men! Ready! Hi Captain! Morning landlubber! – Oh, no! – Calculus! Hello, gentlemen! I’m ready to demonstrate! I’ll take care of this! Now I still have to assemble it, of course Got it! Now what? Hello Tintin! Reporting for duty, sir! Detectives? Don’t say detectives! We’ve gone undercover The Bird brothers have escaped! We’ve been assigned to keep an eye on things! Fine! One down below then report to the bridge! Yes, Sir..! Prepare to raise anchor! Run the flag! Secure latchings! Captain! Someone is stealing food! A thief in our midst?! Why… the glutton! Gourmand! Greedy piglet! Captain… what’s wrong? Someone’s stealing food Snowy? Don’t be so quick to accuse anyone unless you have proof Snowy…! Here, boy! Snowy Snowy! Aaaaggh…! – Captain! Help! Captain! It’s a b.. b.. bomb! Careful! This isn’t a bomb, Captain! It’s not? Then what is it? And what’s it doing in my hold? Look at this! Wait ’till I get my hands on ’em I’ll tweak his cheeks to rubber Ooops… Uhh Calculus!
Good morning, gentlemen! Thank you for waking me I was hoping you could give me a cabin I slept rather badly last night A cabin! I ought to throw you overboard! You hear me? With the view of the sea! Delightful! I don’t see anything! Are you sure your calculations are correct, Captain? Of course they’re correct, numbhead! Of course they are! – Even in this fog! – Quite Captain! What do you want? According to my pendulum we should be further west Look! The island! That must be Sir Francis Haddock’s island! Come on! Let’s look around! What was that? Goodness! Have you found something? It’s Sir Francis’ boat! We’re on the right track Snowy! What’s that? Why… it looks like Sir Francis…! Thundering typhoons! You’re right! – Nincompeeps! – Hah! Poppingjays! Brigands! Gggghosts! Ha ha Poppins! Look! There’s your ghosts, detectives! Sir Francis must have taught their ancestors how to talk! Well, blistering barnacles! Blistering barnacles! Blistering barnacles! Blistering barnacles! Well, that was a waste of time! How do we know the treasure isn’t buried somewhere on the island? Because Sir Francis would have brought it back with him when he was rescued No… the treasure must be in the wreck of the Unicorn Somewhere on the ocean floor – I hope so…! Ten thousand thundering typhoons! He almost bit my hand off! They’re all around! This’ll teach them not to attack innocent hands! Calculus! Oh! Hello! I’m ready Now remember… the clock shows oxygen supply and the red button is a smoke flare For when you find the Unicorn Okay, Captain! Lower me down! The Unicorn! Yahoo! Oh… oh… we’d better surface! It’s Tintin! He’s surfaced!
Tintin’s in Strasbourg? How’s that possible! I found it! The Unicorn! Start pumping! My air’s stopped! Something’s wrong! He’s tugging on the line! Thundering typhoons! Why aren’t you pumping? We’re taking a rest I’ll give you a rest! Man that pump! Now! Faster! That’s better He’s found something! Wow! A casket! This has got to be the treasure! He’s swallowed the whole bottle! That must have been some rub! Quick! That’s the signal to pull Tintin up! Blistering blue barnacles! He sent up a shark! They’re just old documents Aa-aah May I take a look? Don’t lose heart, Captain We’ll keep searching Come on, Captain! It hasn’t been a total loss After all… we find some fine artifacts I’m glad to see we’re finally headed West Treasure hunt ends in failure. Good morning, Tintin! Hi Professor I’m returning the documents Documents? What documents? Oh, I’m fine thank you! But surely you remember the documents you found in the Unicorn? I thought this one would interest you It seems that Marlinspike Hall is Captain Haddocks’ family estate That’s it! Professor, you’re a genius! – Don’t you see, Captain? – No! The treasure must be at Marlinspike Hall! The treasure…? At Marlinspike Hall? Oh no! Marlinspike’s up for sale! Oh dear! Captain! You must buy it immediately! – Aah – What’s wrong? Don’t worry about money! The government bought my anti-shark submarine for quite a tidy sum!
And since you let me test it I’ll buy Marlinspike for you – Wow! – This way, Captain! It might be in here! It’s full of junk! Where we start looking? “Three brothers joined “Will shine forth “The Eagle’s Cross. ” Captain! The cross! The Eagle! Look! Sir Francis’ island! Wooow…! Red Rackham’s treasure! Sst… someone’s coming! Calculus! Wow…! Ah! Mr. Tintin, I’m glad you’re here I’ve finally located the treasure Hahahaha…! An impressive display, Captain! Yes! Just as I always said more to the west! All’s well that ends well Aye, Professor! No, thank you… never between meals! No! No! I said…! All’s well that ends well! Without any doubt! Which reminds me of that old saying: “All’s well that ends well” Wouldn’t you agree, Captain? Without any doubt! The End…
