This month we are taking a look at the sound that accompanies the art

of animation. Michael Lyons talks with two-time Academy award winning

duo, the Sherman Brothers, who are responsible for the songs and

column with an interview with David Kirk, whose world of "Miss

instructional installment and much, much more...
