    Sherman Brothers Window Dedication March 11, 2010

    Approximately 50 years ago, the Sherman Brothers started working for the Walt Disney Company. Today, March 11, 2010, these Disney Legends received their place in history at Disneyland with their own "window" on Main St. In a rare public dedication, Richard and Robert Sherman now officially have their own door to the 20th Century Music Shop. Richard Sherman was on hand today for this dedication, Robert Sherman was unable to make it in person for this special occassion.

    Fabulous! The Sherman Brothers really earned that window. Mary Poppins alone could have justified it, but their lifetime of hit songs symbolize many generations of Disney melodies and happy memories.

    Thank you for covering this event for us!

    nice. i thought it'd be a private event, but if anyone could've been there, maybe I should've spent the night after the D23 event to see this in person...

    I love how they flew kites overhead for the final song! What a terrific and fitting ceremony for two legendary Disney composers.

    Great report...thank you!

    I saw a lot of these guys last night, including Mr. Sherman. I would like to have been there today, although "Feed The Birds" makes me cry like a baby.

    Great pictures, thanks for sharing them with us! A much deserved honor for a couple of true "Disney legends".
    God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
