Default 6/8 Steamboat from the Nutcracker Ballet

As the holidays roll around, I have to ask this question. We play the little 6/8 tune Steamboat. I have noticed the same exact tune as part of Tschicovsky's (sp) Nutcracker ballet score.
Anyone know who borrowed from whom on this one? Most know the story of Green Hills from Rossini, but this is another "pipe" tune taken from the classics?
