Did Disney ever create new animated material for the old Walt Disney Presents TV show (apart from the Ludwig Van Drake intros from the 60s)?

I recall seeing a version of Aesop's fables (rendered in the kind of United Artists style that was considered very hip in the 50s) that really impressed me, wee tyke that I was at the time.

So I went looking for the short on imdb, Netflix, etc., but no luck, not even on Google. I did find the title of the episode it must have appeared on: "From Aesop to Hans Christian Andersen"-- from back in 1955!

Even I'm not that old -- I believe a syndicated version of the show ran for years and years, so it was probably closer to 1975 when I saw it.

The animation seemed pretty impressive to me -- maybe it was from a project that never made it to the big screen? If anyone else remembers it -- or better yet, knows if it's available in whatever format, please let me know.
