Cigars of the Pharaoh (1991)

Beginning with Tintin and his dog Snowy on a cruise ship in the Mediterranean Sea they meet Dr. Sarcophagus, an Egyptologist who owns a papyrus that he believes will lead him to the undiscovered tomb of the Pharaoh Kih-Oskh. He invites Tintin to accompany him. Tintin also has an unpleasant first encounter with Roberto Rastapopoulos, a wealthy film tycoon. Later on the cruise, Tintin first encounters Thomson and Thompson, who accuse him of smuggling opium and cocaine which they have found in his cabin. Locked in the hold of the ship, Tintin craftily escapes and meets Sarcophagus in Port Said, Egypt.
