This doesn't relate hugely, but I also read somewhere that he shaves his beard off also! Tintin has a Peace Symbol on the side of his helmet in Picaros too!

Wait, when did he shave his beard? I don't remember that anywhere.

He was going to near the end of Alph-Art, I believe. But Hergé passed away with only plans of this. Sorry this reply was about half a year late!

I wonder about this; had Haddock made a radical transformation, I wonder how it would have sat with fans if the book was finished?

Hergé was always thinking about things, he had that type of brain.

I'm not sure that I'd have worried; I don't imagine that Hergé was considering it a permanent alteration to the Captain, just one of his many passing fancies, like his spell as a monocled country gentleman.

If there had been more comic mileage in it, he might have carried it across into another book, but just as likely the Captain would have cast his eye about, and come up with some new hobby to pursue or lifestyle to try.

Could be. Most of the time with things like this fans wouldn't want to see that type of change as radical as it would be...especially if it was over the top. When he became that country gentleman it last for a very short time. Becoming a hippie and shaving his beard off would be really strange. It wouldn't have fit his personality because he was an older irritable guy with a cool vocabulary.
