Death of a Disney Songwriter
Who can forget this delightful song written for Winnie the Pooh, or

The Sherman brothers also composed the Jungle Book and most famously, "Its a small world after all." Their work is known from the early days with the Micky Mouse Club, they also composed the famous "You're Sixteen" sung by Ringo Starr, an so many movies that mark our childhood with great memories. With catchy tunes and great lyrics, Robert and his brother Richard will never be forgotten. Thanks for being a part of making childhood so memorable!
