Tobacco advertising, one must emphasize, advertising, has been off TV since about l975 in Toto- Cigarette advertising much longer ( Piper, cigar and so-called Little Cigar ads were allowed up until the mid-late seventies). I can"t see how tobacco use can add anything to a plot- Bogart excuse me. for all intensive purposed TV-Land is a smoke free zone- excepting reruns of movies which show tobacco use- such as those by Bogart and George Burns.

It's banned from being on TV because of the smoking and drinking. Disney didn't want to continue producing it on television for younger viewers. It can still be purchased, but it will no longer be airing on TV. It was never banned, it was just a rumor going around for a long time since it was hard to find at one point in time. It was out of production for a long time. That used to happen to Disney features all the time.
