EXCLUSIVE: Richard Sherman on ‘The Aristocats’ and the Best Song You Never Heard

Richard Sherman © Disney EnterprisesYesterday, I had the distinct honor of speaking with Disney (and all-around) legend Richard Sherman, half of the Sherman Brothers, one of the most beloved and prolific songwriting teams whose music has been known and loved by generations of fans from all walks of life.

The occasion for our petit chat is the upcoming re-release of The Aristocats from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment on August 21, 2012. Available for the first time ever in Blu-ray high-definition format. The exciting tale takes place in the heart of Paris where a kind and eccentric millionairess, wills her entire estate to ‘Duchess,’ a high society cat, and her three kittens. When the bumbling butler Edgar tries to pull off the ultimate catnap caper in order to secure the fortune for himself, it’s up to alley cat Thomas O’Malley and his band of swingin’ jazz cats to save the day.
