The Nicholas Brothers

I caught a couple of minutes of the Nicholas Brothers on a PBS feature this weekend and finally remembered to track down some YouTube video*.  This number from Stormy Weather was famously (apparently) described by Fred Astaire as the greatest musical sequence ever filmed, Fred's word carries a bit more weight than mine here but I'll just say that if it was filmed today you would think it was CGI:  

There is something, however, in this clip of them when they were kids which I like even more: 

Oh yeah, here with Michael Jackson:

*Yes, my wife was out of town.
