You cannot disable those emoticons. They come with the built in Message app.
What you Can do is get another Message app in the play store. For example Go SMS, Chomp SMS etc.
These apps are like a replacement to the original SMS app. Some also have separate Emoji Plug-ins (Emoticons) which you can use if you dont like the ones in the original app.
However, If you download another SMS app, you will get two Notifications of a received sms. To fix this, Go into the original sms app, then press settings and check the Notification option. This will disable all notifications for that sms app. Any sms you receive will only be shown to you in the app you just set as the home sms app.
I hope that helps you. Good Luck
