"Hey Diddle Diddle" is a classic nursery rhyme about a cat, a fiddle, a cow, a moon, a little dog, a dish, and a spoon. The poem was first published in 1765, but its origins may be earlier.




  • A Sesame Street News Flash featured the rhyme. This time the cat is the manager of Natalie, whom was going to perform a jumping-over-the-moon stunt. The Cat was also a professional violinist; he accompanied Natalie's takeoff with a fanfare on his fiddle and played Wild Blue Yonder as the cow went over the moon.
  • Telly tries to present a reenactment of the nursery rhyme in Episode 3231 of Sesame Street, but the characters from the rhyme prove to be uncooperative.
  • Hey Diddle Diddle is the "Nursery Rhyme of the Day" in Episode 4079 of Sesame Street, which is recited by a cow who fell from the sky.
  • Telly catches the cow from the rhyme as she lands in Episode 4083 of Sesame Street.
