This sound effect can be found on Warner Bros. Sound Effects Library, which was made by Sound Ideas. Essentialy, this is a highly processed version of the original sound which sounds more of a howl than a scream. This sound either comes from the engine straining in a dive or its "siren", ala the Ju 87 Stuka dive bomber. There's also a highly processed one Disney did that sounds like a whistle.

Used In

TV Shows

  • Arthur (The Landspeeder variant is heard in a dream segment, in reverse, as Francine flys away on futuristic vehicle, much to Arthur's dismay)
  • Clarence (Heard once in "Water Play.")
  • The Fairly OddParents (such as when "dodgerock" happens)
  • Lego Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures (used on some occasions as TIE Fighters fly by)
  • The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack (at least once as a mean whale is launched)
  • Regular Show (heard once in "A Regular Show Epic Battle Part 2" as a ship goes down)
  • The Spacebots
  • SpongeBob SquarePants (such as Plankton flying toward a wall in "The Algae's Always Greener")
  • Star Wars: Clone Wars (2003-2005) (a slightly higher pitched version is used as a gunship goes down in "Chapter 3", and as Mace Windu's Jedi Fighter begins to dive after he crashes into droid fighters in "Chapter 3". The Landspeeder version is used for the Geonocian spacecraft often.)
  • Star Wars: The Clone Wars (a slightly modifed version is used for the descents and dives of Y-Wings. Heard once in "Nomad Droids" and 3 times (twice in a much higher pitch) in "Landing at Port Rain".) The Landspeeder version is used for, of course, landspeeders.
  • Tom and Jerry Tales (in a lower, deeper processed pitch, in "Bats What I Like About The South")

TV Specials
