They are pleasantly surprised by the arrival of the magical Mary Poppins who delights them with fantastical adventures. The siblings try to pass on some of their nanny's sunny attitude to their preoccupied parents. The movie won two Academy Awards and two Grammys.

Music and lyrics were written by songwriters Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman, adapted by Irwin Kostal and edited by Alfred Reed. This medley includes “Feed the Birds,” “A Spoonful of Sugar,” “I Love to Laugh,” “Jolly 'oliday,” “Step in Time,” “Chim Chim Cher-ee,” “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocius,” and “Let’s Go Fly a Kite.”
