"Heigh-Ho" is a song from Walt Disney's 1937 animated film Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. It is sung by the group of seven dwarfs as they work at a mine with diamonds and rubies.
The melodic theme for "Heigh-Ho" might have been inspired by Robert Schumann's "The Happy Farmer Returning From Work" a piece from Schumann's "Album for the Young", opus 68 for the piano, composed in 1848.
The other Dwarf Chorus songs are "Bluddle-Uddle-Um-Dum" and "The Silly Song".
Mannheim Steamroller covered the song on their 1999 album, Mannheim Steamroller Meets the Mouse.
In Oliver and Company Tito sings "Heigh-Ho, Heigh-Ho, it's off to work we go" when he is rescuing Jenny.
The Electric Company spoofed the song twice, both in Snow White related skits; in one, "Snow Ball and the Six Dwarfs", the dwarfs (five of whom have ly adverbial names and the sixth is called "Doc") enter singing "Ho-Hi, Ho-Hi". Another, a "Director" skit in which the Director is trying to direct a movie called "Snow White and the Three Dwarfs", the dwarfs sing "Heigh-Ho" as an introduction song used to start the show and introduce the dwarfs (Happy always got his name wrong, calling himself "Henry", "Harry" or "Harvey").
The Snow White sequence of the Simpsons episode, Four Great Women and a Manicure features the seven dwarfs (based on Simpsons characters) singing another spoof of the Heigh Ho song, "Ho-Hi, Ho-Hi".
One of the most famous scenes in the movie Gremlins has the Gremlins watching the "Heigh-Ho" scene in a theater in Kingston Falls, and singing along.
