Sad. The end of an era for the Disney company. Surely, this is a sad day for anyone who loves the Mouse House culture.
Robert Sherman, half of the legendary songwriting duo known as The Sherman Brothers, passed away last night at the age of 89. Robert and his brother Richard wrote memorable and everlasting songs for Disney films like Mary Poppins and The Jungle Book, as well as the classic theme park attraction tune, It's A Small World.
Though the brothers had a falling out after the passing of Walt Disney, a new documentary about the brothers brought them together briefly, which we're glad to hear considering the sad news.
R.I.P. Robert Sherman. Disney wouldn't be the same without you!
