East of the Sun and West of the Moon was collected and recorded by the Norwegian folklorists, Peter Christen Asbjornsen and Jorgen Moe. They published it around 1845 in one of their first collections of tales. The tale had been previously popular in Scandinavian countries and then gained popularity in the United Kingdom and United states after the first English translation appeared in:
Montalba, Anthony R. Fairy Tales From All Nations. Richard Doyle, illustrator. London: Chapman & Hall,1849.

Hey diddle diddle, the cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon.
The little dog laughed to see such fun
And the dish ran away with the spoon!
