“And here is your host, Walt Disney.”

On January 6, 1963, the Disney anthology series Walt Disney’s Wonderful World of Color premiered the episode “Three Tall Tales.” The episode, hosted by Walt Disney and Ludwig von Drake, begins with an introductory monologue about Baron von Munchausen, a character from German folklore about a man who was famous for telling tall tales. The series then presents three tall tales told through Disney animation: Casey at the Bat (released August 15, 1946, as part of the animated feature Make Mine Music), The Saga of Windwagon Smith (released on March 16, 1961), and Paul Bunyan (released August 1, 1958).
