Roy E. Disney
Year Inducted: 2008
If the Walt Disney Studios were to have a real-life Jiminy Cricket, it would have to have been former vice chairman Roy Edward Disney, son of Roy O. Disney and nephew of Walt Disney. Besides being its conscience, Roy has also been called the “soul of the Company;” he often looked to its past to define its future.
Roy once said, “The thing that distinguishes us from everybody else, and always has and always will, is our past. The goal is to look over our shoulder and see Snow White and Pinocchio and Dumbo standing there, saying, ‘Be this good.’ We shouldn’t be intimidated by them; they’re an arrow pointing someplace.”

Generations of moviegoers and theme park guests have been introduced to the world of Disney through the songs of the Sherman brothers. Whether they know the names behind the songs or not, you’d be hard pressed to find a person alive who hasn’t at one time or another hummed one of the Shermans’ timeless tunes; even today, they remain the quintessential lyrical voice of Walt Disney.
Richard and Robert Sherman are probably best known for their work on Mary Poppins, for which they won two Oscars®: best score, and best song for “Chim Chim Cher-ee.” Another of their songs from the film, “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious,” became a pop hit, entering the Billboard Hot 100 in August 1965. “Feed the Birds,” a lullaby, became one of Walt Disney’s all-time favorite songs.
Thanks for listening! We'll see you real soon!
