In Tintin DVDs and books, Captain Haddock has "Blistering barnacles" and "Thundering typhoons!", Professor Calculus with "Good gracious!" and "Great sunspots!", as well as the
Thom(p)sons' "Precisely".

Tintin is quite familiar with "Great snakes!" I also heard/read him said, "Shocks!" Any other curses our reporter mentioned in the entire series/all albums?

Erratum: The topic title should be "Does Tintin accurses...", not "...accursed..."

Crumbs.

That's about it. And they're hardly curses.

Actually the topic title should be: 'Does Tintin curse too?'
I hope English isn't your first language, otherwise you're a very sloppy writer.

Hahaha...! Well, thanks anyway. ;) But I'm not that quite sloppy, for I usually edit, and of course, welcome suggestions.

I don't ever recall Tintin saying "Shocks!" that wouldn't make any sense!

Perhaps the original poster meant 'shucks', not 'shocks'?

Just read from the Picaros comic book, Tintin called Snowy as "you old dipso".

Picaors, page 4, frame 2b/A2b:
[Tintin to Snowy] Come on, off to bed, you old dipso! Sleep off the booze!

Wow! So he does. I've never noticed that before.
Thanks Mars.

Tintinalog, I'd hardly call that swearing though.

Tintin mentioned "Shocks!" (or "shucks," whatever it is) in Tintin and the Lake of Sharks as he entered the cave.
