Robert Sherman died in London on March 5th, 2012, at the age of 86.
Sherman and his brother Richard were known as the Sherman Brothers and composed some of the most enduring Disney songs of all time, from "Mary Poppins," "Chitty Chitty Bang Bang" and "Winnie the Pooh."
He also authored "It's a Small World," which has been described as the most-played, most-translated and most-hair-pullingly-catchy tune on Earth.
Once heard, it was never fogotten.
In a sense, Robert Sherman must have been the best wizard in Disney.
