Rhea Perlman as the Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe.

There was an Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe is an English nursery rhyme. First published in 1797, the origin and meaning of the rhyme are unknown, with some speculating a connection between shoes and marriage (with the tradition of a bride casting a shoe before leaving for her honeymoon), while others look for a link to a real person, such as Queen Caroline, who had eight children.


  • In an episode of "Fairytale Detective" on Sesame Street, Miss Marble tried to find the Old Woman's shoe, which was found by a giant who tried it on.
