Jon Goes On…Robert Sherman

I was sad to hear that Robert Sherman passed away yesterday. He and his brother wrote the music and lyrics to some of my favorite Disney movies. Growing up, I couldn’t get enough of Sword and the Stone! My mom hand made a sweatshirt for me so I could pretend to be Merlin and “Higitus Figitus” and “Hockety Pockety” my way through the day.

Cheers Robert…I wish I could prestidigitonium you back!
