For the sake of simplicity, I think we can call DuckTales a "2D" show.

And is Tailspin the only Disney cartoon TV series to have an episode that was completely banned? Because, seriously, an episode of Tailspin was banned!

You mean, before airing, or after?
One episode of "Buzz Lightyear of Star Command" later reportedly dropped out of syndication, an "anti-drug" episode where Buzz's female partner Mira starts using a new super-boosted power source, and her "down" times without it start looking a little too metaphorically close to the real thing.

So, what was the Tailspin episode?

I often wonder what he would have thought of 1967's The Jungle Book, too! ;)

Tailspin had two banned episodes. One which received a temp ban for pandas who supposedly depicted Asian stereotypes, but a permanent ban was issued after a single airing of one in which Baloo's plane was taken over by terrorists. Both episodes apparently made it to the DVD set, though.

From the front page, a pretty great piece on the man behind the DuckTales theme:
