Other than the list of 1997-1998 dubbed versions listed on Wikia, there are no other of these kind of dubbed prints of post-1948 shorts only available for TV.

There is a MASSIVE DIFFERENCE between those post-1948 shorts with the DUBBED VERSION (C) 1997 WARNER BROS and the THIS VERSION (C) 1997 WARNER BROS disclaimers.

1. Firstly the post-48 shorts with the DUBBED VERSION (C) 1997 WARNER BROS. disclaimer. Shorts with this disclaimer are the ones coming from the Stars Of Space Jam VHS tapes/Japanese laserdisc as well as the VHS releases Carrotblanca: Looney Tunes Go To The Movies and Road Runner and Wile E. Coyote: Chariots Of Fur and Five Other Cartoons. These post-48 shorts with this disclaimer however are not restored at all, having them sourced from the same transfers used for the Warner Home Video 1990s laserdisc releases. The reason behind the dubbed disclaimer placed on these unrestored cartoons are only because of a dub track produced.

There are two variants of this DUBBED VERSION (C) 1997 WARNER BROS. disclaimer (according to what you pointed out); 

  1. 1- the long variant with the MUSIC (C) 1997 WARNER BROS. (P) 1997 WARNER BROS. copyright stamp, much like the 1995 dubbed versions by Turner Entertainment; These cartoons don't survive their original music-and-effects track, so a new dub track is recreated using music cues from other cartoons and sound effects from the Looney Tunes archives. Examples: Homeless Hare (1950), Hare Do (1949).
  1. 2- the "normal" variant without the MUSIC (C) 1997 WARNER BROS. (P) 1997 WARNER BROS. copyright stamp; These cartoons do survive their original music-and-effects track, but have some of the original sound effects missing, so the dub track is fixed by adding in new sound effects from the Looney Tunes archives to replace the lost original sound effects. Examples: Holiday For Drumsticks (1949), Canary Row (1950), hence the Snow Business 1997 dubbed version literally had no restoration at all.

2. Finally, the post-48 shorts with the THIS VERSION (C) 1997 WARNER BROS. disclaimer. Shorts with this disclaimer all come only from the Bugs and Friends' Japanese laserdisc and the European VHS tapes. These post-48 shorts were given a new restoration by Warner Bros. in 1997 for this international home release. The cartoons coming from this international release are Bugs Bunny cartoons plus cartoons featuring Daffy Duck, Tweety, Road Runner, Speedy Gonzales or Marvin the Martian, depending on the tape/disk, covering through the 1950s till 1965. 

While their NTSC versions (which is often rare in availability) present the dubbed version prints in normal-pitched audio and NTSC playback speed, their PAL versions however for some reason present the dubbed version prints in normal-pitched audio instead of high-pitched audio despite playing at PAL playback speed. These 1997 restorations do exist with and without the dubbed disclaimer.
