Music in Disney's Animated Features

The Sword in the Stone and The Jungle Book were the last two animated features to be produced under the supervision of Walt Disney. They were also the first two animated films that included songs written by the Sherman Brothers. Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman were born into a songwriting family and found their first string of successes writing songs for Mouseketeer Annette Funicello. The chapter covers the use of Jazz in “The Bare Necessities” and “I Wan’na Be Like You.” “My Own Home,” which is equal parts work song, lullaby, and siren song, is contextualized in terms of the main theme of The Jungle Book.

Keywords:   The Sword in the Stone, The Jungle Book, Richard M. Sherman, Robert B. Sherman, “My Own Home”
