"Heffalumps and Woozles" is a song featured in the series, Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day and later The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh. It is sung by the Mellomen (portrayed by four singing honey pots at some points, but mostly offscreen) during Pooh's nightmare caused by Tigger, in which Pooh is terrified by Heffalumps and Woozles.

This song was included on the VHS tapes Disney Sing Along Songs: Be Our Guest and Sing a Song with Pooh Bear.

Lyrics

Tigger's Voice: Heffalumps and Woozles. Heffalumps and Woozles steal honey. Beware! Beware!

Honeypot Quartet: They're black, they're brown, they're up, they're down
They're in, they're out, they're all about

They're far, they're near, they're gone, they're here

They're quick and slick, they're insincere

Beware, beware

Be a very wary bear

A Heffalump or Woozle

Is very confusil

A Heffalump or Woozle's very sly

Sly, sly, sly

They come in ones and twosles

But if they so choozles

Before your eyes you'll see them multiply

Ply, ply, ply

They're extraordinary

So better be wary

Because they come in every shape and size

Size, size, size

If honey's what you covet

You'll find that they love it

Because they'll guzzle up the thing you prize

They're green, they're blue, they're pink, they're white
They're round, they're square, they're a terrible sight
They tie themselves in horrible knots
They come in stripes or polka dots
Beware, beware
Be a very wary bear

(musical interlude)

They're extraordinary

So better be wary

Because they come in every shape and size

Size, size, size

If honey's what you covet

You'll find that they love it

Because they'll guzzle up the thing you prize

They're black, they're brown, they're up, they're down

They're in, they're out, they're all about

They're far, they're near, they're gone, they're here

They're quick and slick, they're insincere

Beware, beware

Beware, beware

Beware!

Tigger's Voice: Heffalumps and Woozles steal honey.

Honeypot Quartet: They're black, they're brown, they're up, they're down

They're in, they're out, they're all about

They're far, they're near, they're gone, they're here

They're quick and slick, they're insincere

Beware, beware

Be a very wary bear

A Heffalump or Woozle

Is very confusil

A Heffalump or Woozle's very sly

Sly, sly, sly

They come in ones and twosles

But if they so choozles

Before your eyes you'll see them multiply

Ply, ply, ply

They're extraordinary

So better be wary

Because they come in every shape and size

Size, size, size

If honey's what you covet

You'll find that they love it

Because they'll guzzle up the thing you prize

They're black, they're brown, they're up, they're down

They're in, they're out, they're all about

They're far, they're near, they're gone, they're here

They're quick and slick, they're insincere

Beware

Beware!

Trivia

  • In some languages, the "Heffalumps and Woozles" pun has been slightly modified, as the names of the Heffalumps and Woozles in these languages look more like the real words for "elephants" and "weasels". For example, in French, where "elephant" is "éléphant" and "weasel" "belette" or "fouine" (beech marten), they basically just reversed some letters, making "Éphélants et Nouifes". Same goes for the Arabic term for Heffalumps. The Japanese terms are「ズオウ」zuō (from 「象」) and 「ヒイタチ」hītachi (from 「鼬」 itachi). In the Esperanto version of the first book, the terms are "hefelanto" (from elefanto) and "vizlo" (from vizelo).
  • Elements of the song are played earlier when Pooh heard growling and banging noises outside his house that turn out to be Tigger.
  • The song is very similar to and has been compared to "Pink Elephants on Parade". Both are musical numbers that feature imaginary elephants in various forms and are sung by an offscreen chorus. Also, a scene of two heffalumps dancing reuses an animation from said song.
  • In the soundtrack version of the song, the lyrics describing the colors and patterns on the Heffalumps and Woozles has been left out.
