Walt Disney Presents Burl Ives' Animal Folk (Disneyland ST 3920, 1963) is one of several albums for children by the folk singer Burl Ives.

There is a full-color booklet inserted between the gatefold covers of this album. The booklet is lavishly illustrated with selected song lyrics and cartoon representations of Ives interacting with the animals in the songs. The illustrator is not identified.

Although intended for children, the album is notable for its many references to the death, loss of or danger to the characters in the songs (see below for a breakdown).

Ten of the songs from Animal Folk were released as A Day at the Zoo with Burl Ives (Disneyland 1347) in 1972.

Wayfarer Music, the copyright holder of many of the songs in 1963, was a company started by Ives. It is now administrated by his widow.
