Hey Diddle Diddle is a Mother Goose nursery rhyme from Richard Scarry's Best Sing-Along Mother Goose Video Ever.

After the rhyme when Emperor Huckle keeps walking and calling for his friend, Lowly Worm, and does not watch where he is going, the dish and the spoon trip over his foot and doesn't ask if they've seen Lowly, but they’re excused and kind of in a rush, because they're late for dinner and they'd better go. Huckle wanders off sadly on his way that he'd lost his friend, dragging a small brown stone in the road by kicking it with his foot.

Lyrics/Script Edit

Sung:

Hey diddle diddle the cat and the fiddle

The cow jumped over the moon

The little dog laughed to see such sport

And the dish ran away with the spoon

The little dog laughed to see such sport

Spoken:

D.W. Dog: That cow can jump!

Sung:

And the dish ran away with the spoon

Trivia Edit
