Sherman’s Brothers A to Z. M is for Monkey’s Uncle.

It’d time for week #3 in our alphabetical look at Sherman Brother’s movie songs. I vaguely remember watching this film either on Wide World of Disney or at a school movie day. I’m sure the Sherman’s were associated with their share of clunkers, but the song has held up reasonably well. Annete Funicello and the Beach Boys together? That’s a pretty good size of 60’s memorabilia to start your week off with.

The Monkeys Uncle (1965)
