Trivia: What “Mary Poppins” song won the Best Original Song Oscar?
A Spoonful of Sugar
Chim Chim Cher-ee
Let’s Go Fly a Kite
The correct answer is Chim Chim Cher-ee
So why is this answer correct? : The Sherman Brothers, Robert and Richard Sherman, collaborated on dozens of songs and scores for the big screen, as well as the theme song for Disneyland’s “It’s a Small World” ride. But it was their work on the 1964 film “Mary Poppins” that earned the duo their first Oscars — Best Music Score – Substantially Original, and Best Original Song for “Chim Chim Cher-ee” (performed in the movie by Dick Van Dyke and Julie Andrews). The Sherman Brothers also wrote “A Spoonful of Sugar,” “Let’s Go Fly a Kite,” “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” and “Step in Time.”
