Ham 'Em High is the fifth episode of Angry Birds Classic, featuring a wild west theme divided into three themes with 15 levels each. It was released to celebrate the game's first anniversary.

Ham 'Em High is played in an old western-style theme, with the Pigs wearing cowboy hats and sombreros. In this chapter, the Pigs break free from their captivity in the last chapter, and steal the eggs with a rope, taking them (and the Birds) to the Wild West. This chapter also makes up the twelfth, thirteenth and fourteenth themes of the original game, containing levels 192-240. Since the Theme 14 update, levels that require a "like" to Facebook are added, in the style of Hogs and Kisses, Go Green, Get Lucky and Moon Festival from Angry Birds Seasons.

In Angry Birds Friends, the background of it can be chosen to your avatar.


The following is from The World of Angry Birds Official Guide, as told by the Mighty Eagle:

  There's no time to lose. Those green varmints have lassoed the eggs and dragged them all the way to the open range of Desert Island. Prepare yourself for a showdown at high noon, egg-slinger!

  • Before the episode colors were removed in an update, the representative color they used in Ham 'Em High is tan. (but in the PC version, it was orange)
  • The title of the episode is a reference to the 1968 film, Hang 'Em High.
  • In the intro, there are pigs wearing fedoras and holding whips, thus making a reference to Indiana Jones.
  • This is the first "Angry Birds" episode to use a Pig related pun as its title. The second is Bad Piggies.
  • In the original introduction for this episode prior to the graphical upgrade, Chuck doesn't appear. In the updated introduction, The Bluesdoesn't appear as well. From the 2.3 updates, both of them appear now.
  • Ham 'Em High is the final episode to use the original character designs on the episode thumbnail, as starting from Mine and Dine, the updated Pig design would be used instead.
  • This is the first and currently only episode in the original Angry Birds game that contains levels that require a "like" on Facebook to unlock, although hitting the "Like" button is all that needs to be done.
  • In the Angry Birds Trilogy version of the cutscenes, Medium Pig can be seen when Corporal Pig and Foreman Pig are defeated, while in the original, he's not.
  • This and Danger Above the only episodes where Foreman Pig is seen in the cutscene where Corporal Pig is defeated. Other times, he is not there.
  • Wooden Horses, Cows, Oxes and Dromedaries appear in the levels.
  • The Wild West Tournament in Angry Birds Friends! is similar to this episode.
