I grew up reading The Adventures of Tintin. It is a series of comic books created by Belgian artist Herge. The hero of the series is Tintin, a young Belgian reporter and traveller. He is aided in his adventures from the beginning by his faithful dog Snowy. Later, popular additions to the cast included Captain Haddock, Professor Cuthbert Calculus, Thomson and Thompson and other colorful supporting characters.

Rare find: I spotted these two 3" figures while doing some shopping in one of the shops inside the Bellagio's (Las Vegas) in 2004.
