"Hip Hip Pooh-Ray!" is a song from the 1968 feat
Hip hip pooh ray
urette Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day. It is sung by the cast as a release from the dramatic tension of the story. The song is also incorporated into the 1977 film The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh, which is an amalgamation of four Winnie the Pooh featurettes, including Blustery Day.

The song was written by the Sherman Brothers, Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman who have written most of the music for the Winnie the Pooh franchise over the years.

The song discusses the ways in which Christopher Robin and his friends will honor Pooh for saving Piglet after the flood in Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day.


Narrator: And so the one hero party became a two hero party. Pooh was a hero for saving Piglet's life, and Piglet was a hero for giving Owl his grand home in the beech tree.

All: We never will forget,
Our hero of the wet,
Our quick-thinking, unsinking Pooh Bear. (Tigger: Hoo-Hoo-Hoo-Hoo!)

All: And Piglet, who indeed,
Helped out a friend in need,
A'truly they're the heroes of the day!

So we say...
Hip, hip, hooray,
For the Piglet and the Pooh.
Piglet and Pooh, we salute you.
For deeds of bravery,
And generosity,

We're here to cheer for Winnie the Pooh! And Piglet, too

We're gathered here today

To eat some cake and say A Hip Hip Poohray For our heroes! The stuff of which they're made

Deserves a big parade.

Come along and march behind the drum.So we say, Hip! Hip! Poohray!

For the Piglet and the Pooh!

Piglet and Pooh, We salute you

Gopher: Hey what's all that stomping and singing and silly shenanigans?

For deeds of bravery

And generosity.

Hip, hip, hooray,
Hip, hip, hooray,
Hip, hip, hooray, for Winnie-the-Pooh!

Piglet: And Piglet, too.
