Songwriter Robert Sherman was having a hard time coming up with a catchy song for Julie Andrews hit movie. Inspiration struck him one night when his children told him all about their polio vaccine they received at school. They said it didn’t hurt because the polio vaccine was placed on a sugar cube.
