The Sherman brothers had a huge comeback in 2000 with the score to ''WesternAnimation/TheTiggerMovie'', their first major motion picture effort for Disney in over 28 years. Other significant screenplays and scores include ''WesternAnimation/SnoopyComeHome'', ''[[Literature/TheAdventuresOfTomSawyer Come Home, Tom Sawyer]]'', ''Literature/CharlottesWeb'', ''Film/TheSlipperAndTheRose'' and ''[[{{Franchise/Lassie}} The Magic of Lassie]]'', the latter two of which each received an Oscar nomination. Richard Sherman even contributed the deliberately Disney-esque song "Make Way For Tomorrow" to ''[[Franchise/IronMan Iron Man 2]]''.

The Sherman Brothers continued to write a string of top ten hits for Annette, including "Pineapple Princess," when Walt Disney took notice and soon hired them as staff composers. In all, the Shermans wrote over 150 songs for Disney. Many of these were featured in the studio's animated films, such as ''WesternAnimation/TheSwordInTheStone'', ''WesternAnimation/TheJungleBook'' and ''WesternAnimation/TheAristocats'', for which they cannily coaxed Creator/MauriceChevalier out of retirement to sing the film's title song. They contributed to such films as ''Film/{{The Parent Trap|1961}}'', ''Film/BedknobsAndBroomsticks'' and the entire ''WesternAnimation/TheManyAdventuresOfWinnieThePooh'' series, including ''Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day'', as well as television shows, such as ''Franchise/{{Zorro}}'' and ''[[Series/WaltDisneyPresents Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color]]''. Among their last projects before leaving Disney were songs for EPCOT Center and Tokyo Disneyland.
