"Aesop's Fables: The Smothers Brothers Way" was the seventh comedy album by the Smothers Brothers (released March 15, 1965 on Mercury Records). Seven of Aesop's more famous stories and morals are related in this album (or what are intended to be his fables but are often overshadowed by the bickering of the two brothers). The songs were written by John McCarthy.
