Wolf's self-sacrifice was a big one. Also Jorgen getting killed in the brawl with Wolff. But the absolute most disturbing one is the Rascapac Corpse throwing the crystal ball into the room. It looks so evil and at that point you aren't sure whether it's a dream or not!
The eriee atmosphere preceding it helps.

Tintin spanking Snowy in The Black Island. Also not the Tintin I know.

^Tintin disciplining Snowy when he gets drunk is a running gag almost.

I agree with all of the above here. Tintin tied down to the train tracks by Bobby Smiles in "America" always bothered me. Also, when the delerious Haddock tries to pop Tintin's head off like a champagne cork. Scary stuff. Also, whenever the Rajah(sp?) juice comes out, especially with the fakir in "Cigars."

I don't like it when Muller says "I should have bashed his brains out with my rifle butt" in the Land of Black Gold. He's referring to Tintin, who is left unconscious amongst the rocks as Muller goes to check out the jeep driving past.

The mummy scene takes the bacon, though.

I would say the scene in which Muller tries to shoot himself in the head, because we actually see him pull the trigger. Infact there's a number of suicides:

Muller (Attempted) (Land of Black Gold)
Haddock (Attempted) (Tintin in Tibet)

Any others?

To me I think the wierdest scene was the dream sequence of Captain Haddock in Tintin in Tibet while trekking... not disturbing, but plain weird because it was amazing how Herge mixed up the captain's thoughts in it.

The scariest thing for me was Haddock hallucinating that Tintin was a champagne bottle. I also don't like Mr. Wang's son in The Blue Lotus when he's mad and wanting to chop everyone's heads off.

However, not flagrant abuse as in The Black Island.

The poverty-stricken family scenes at a slum in Picaros is rather disturbing for me...

I was going to post this, good call..

Most alarming Tintin quotes when taken out of context:

1. "Sorry, old man, but you know how a sailor has a passion for knots." - Captain Haddock in "Flight 714"

2. "They're trying to stop us with that ramshackle erection!" - Tintin in "The Calculus Affair"

I never noticed them before, but they're making me laugh like crazy now. Hooray for accidental double entendres!
