A lot of information about the work of brothers Robert and Richard Sherman's work for Walt Disney appeared in the Mudcat obituary of Robert B. Sherman in 2012. His younger brother Richard died on May 25, 2024. Once this squib is in place for the new thread I'll move the link for Richard from the bottom of the obit thread for his brother. As Desert Dancer cautioned in the previous obit, beware earworms. They wrote some of the most durable brain-sticky tunes out there.

From Wikipedia:
The Sherman Brothers wrote more motion-picture musical song scores than any other songwriting team in film history.[3] Their work includes the live-action films The Parent Trap (1961), Mary Poppins (1964), Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (1968), and Bedknobs and Broomsticks (1971) and the animated films The Sword in the Stone (1963), The Jungle Book (1967, except “The Bare Necessities,” which Terry Gilkyson wrote), Charlotte's Web (1973), The Aristocats (1970), and The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh (1977). Among their most famous works are the theme park songs There's A Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow and It's A Small World (After All). According to Time magazine, the latter song is the most performed song of all time.[4][5]
