What's That Song in That Cheerio's Commercial?

There's a Cheerio's commercial with the guy who's all goofy for building birdhouses, and there's this whistled song in the back ground that's been boring into my ear drums since I heard it. But I can't place it, and I don't know what the song is. I almost think I might have heard the first bit of it in an old Little Rascals / Our Gang thing, but I could be wrong.

Any help?

Listen to the Mockingbird. It dates back to at least the Civil War.

"Listen To The Mockingbird" is the Three Stooges theme, so that's where the OP knows it from, probably.

Stooges! Of course.

Pardon me whilst I whistle.
