'The Boys: The Sherman Brothers' Story' documentary

Ever wonder who penned the "It's A Small World" theme song? How about "Chim Chim Cher-ee"? Or 'I Wanna Be Like You," from The Jungle Book? Those and many more were penned by the songwriting duo of Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman. Their fascinating story is told in "The Boys: The Sherman Brothers' Story."

This documentary, produced and directed by two of the sons of the Sherman Brothers, chronicles their journey to Hollywood songwriting prominence. They developed a relationship with Walt Disney himself, penned hundreds of songs, and won Academy Awards, despite their personal differences.

If you've ever found yourself humming a Sherman Brothers song -- like "It's a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow" from Carousel of Progress, or "The Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room" theme song -- then this documentary is a must-watch. Their time of prominence in Hollywood family songwriting was also the time of Walt Disney, and it was a perfect match.

The Boys: The Sherman Brothers' Story is available on amazon.com, or via Netflix streaming video.
