When it comes to American television, network censors often rule on certain plot points to ensure that the American public isn’t traumatized by anything that might be distasteful.
Although these standards have been relaxed over the years (you can now see toilets on TV!) “, but some episodes were omitted by censors but were banned soon after airing.
TaleSpin was a widely beloved afternoon cartoon that aired on The Disney Afternoon, and the series’ final episode, “Flying Dupes” was ultimately banned. In the episode, Baloo is tasked to deliver a package to the Thembrian High Marshall, which isn’t the most controversial plot in the world until you learn that he was unwittingly carrying a bomb.
He was given the bomb by arms manufacturers who wanted Thembria to go to war with Cape Suzette. The terrorism theme was considered to be a bit too risque for an animated series aimed at children, so Disney decided it would be best to pull it from airing in any reruns or through syndication.
Oddly enough, “Flying Dupes” did find its way to television in 1999, eight years after it first aired. It popped up on Toon Disney but is believed to have resulted from an oversight on whoever threw the episode on the air. It has since never seen the light of day on any Disney channel.
The episode cannot be found on iTunes or Disney+, but if you want to check it out, there is a way. It was released on the series DVD in 2013, so copies of the episode do exist.
