comment Stop-motion animation about a conductor with a large moustache
Just stopping in to let you know I haven't abandoned this question. If there aren't any other posts in the next day or so, I'll go ahead and mark this question as answered and try again for the ballerina segment separately.

Looking into it some more, I don't think the music-box ballerina short was by George Pal. The setting is in a human-sized living room and the ballerina knows that she's part of the music box, doesn't want to get thrown away for being broken. (Or something to that effect), rather than characters in their own "world".

I'd run into the Ivo Caprino film while searching too, definitely not what I'm remembering. I'm not sure how much it helps, but I found the exact Puppetoon, labeled as The Little Broadcast, thanks for all the help so far!

I agree on the Tin Soldier lead, but I kept hitting dead ends. I very specifically remember the ballerina being "broken" (her leg, almost certainly) and someone trying to help fix her with glue.

Amazing! Using your lead, I was able to absolutely confirm that this was the first short I remember, specifically this image is specifically one I remember: image I'll try to follow this to the others!
