Fantastic, very wonderful
Origin: A memorable fictitious word most widely remembered for its use in the movie Mary Poppins (Walt Disney Studios, released 1964), and is also the title from a song in the movie. It is now a real word featured in the Oxford Dictionary. Some controversy surrounded the veracity of its origins when a lawsuit was brought by Gloria Parker upon Walt Disney Studios for copyright infringement in 1965. The claim, although proved false, was that the word could be traced to a 1949 song. Rumors persist as to the word's origins, nonetheless its authorship has now been definitively attributed to Robert B. Sherman and Richard M. Sherman, the Disney songwriters who wrote the movie songs.
"Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious" is a song from the 1964 Disney musical film Mary Poppins. The song was written by the Sherman Brothers, and sung by Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke. It also appears in the stage show version. Since Mary Poppins was a period piece set in 1910, songs that sounded similar to songs of the period were wanted.
