The double Oscar-winning Sherman Brothers -
Richard M Sherman & Robert B Sherman remain one of the most formidable
songwriting teams in family entertainment history. From 1964 onwards their
unparalleled partnership produced music, songs and scores for dozens of films,
particularly many of Disney’s best loved titles including Mary Poppins, Chitty
Chitty Bang Bang, The Jungle Book, Bedknobs & Broomsticks, Charlotte’s Web,
and The Aristocats. The highly prolific brothers were the sons of the great Al
Sherman who wrote songs for the likes of Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and
many singers of the golden American Songbook period of the 1930s-1950s.
