Subject Notes:  The famous song writing team of brothers Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman are best known for their Academy Award-winning songs from Mary Poppins, along with countless other Disney songs and theme park favorites such as It's A Small World and The Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room.

Their amazing career and personal life can been experienced in the feature-length documentary The Boys: The Sherman Brothers' Story that was conceived, produced and directed by the two songwriters' sons.
