Disney legend Dick Van Dyke is still going strong, even at 96 years old! The cheerful actor known for playing Bert from the 1964 movie Mary Poppins and Dick in the 1961 – 1966 CBS television sitcom The Dick Van Dyke Show (opposite Julie Andrews and Mary Tyler Moore as his leading ladies) has just been part of a music video by his wife Arlene Silver, and he has made it clear that he’s still got his dancing shoes!



Leading the charge in fast-paced, bouncy musical numbers like “Step in Time” from Mary Poppins made it clear decades ago that Dick Van Dyke was a talent when it came to singing, dancing, and acting — not to mention charming audiences with his buoyant personality, boyish good looks, and joyous smile — and the Night at the Museum actor has remained a favorite close to many Disney fans’ hearts throughout his life just like the late Betty White.

The new music video is for the song called “Everybody Loves a Lover”, by Arlene and the Vantastix, and it’s just as cheerful and sweet as Dick Van Dyke; take a look at the Youtube video below!

Although the music video also features Tony Guerrero and the Vantastix (who are Eric Bradley, Bryan Chadima, and Mike Mendyke), the focus is on Arlene and Dick. Arlene also directed the video.

The song “Everybody Loves a Lover” was written by Robert Allen and Richard Adler — and since the music video was released on Valentine’s Day, it’s an adorable way to celebrate your sweetheart!

Dick Van Dyke and Arlene Silver are part of a love story for the ages, after all; even with a 46-year age difference between them, the couple seems to be very smitten!

Dick Van Dyke has shown off his dancing and singing once in a while in the last decade, even as he approaches 100 years old, proving that the spirit of the Disney Legend is still just as full of “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” fun as he was back in 1964!
