Hickory Dickory Dock is a popular nursery Rhyme. The earliest recorded version of the rhyme was published in London around 1744, and began, "Hickere, Dickere Dock". The modern version is as follows:

Hickory, dickory, dock,
The mouse ran up the clock.
The clock struck one,
The mouse ran down,
Hickory, dickory, dock.




  • Sesame Street Episode 2753 sees the mouse from the story finding new nursery rhymes to star in while her clock is repaired.
  • In Episode 3446 of Sesame Street, the titular mouse attempts to reenact the rhyme when his clock breaks. As Luis tries to fix the clock, the mouse adopts Big Bird as a replacement, reciting a modified version of the rhyme called "Hickory Dickory Dird."
  • The theme of Episode 3928 of Sesame Street is Nursery Rhyme day. Telly takes on the role of the mouse from the rhyme, but he has trouble climbing the clock, using his pogo stick to reach it, but promptly falling off. Big Bird rewrite they rhyme, having Jack and Jill (played by Slimey and Glo Worm) climb the clock instead.
  • Episode 4079 of Sesame Street features The Man in Brown, who owns a pig named Hickory Dickory, the star of the rhyme "Hickory Dickory Dare."
