This sound is a common, ANNOYING sound of a baby crying frequently used by Baby Kate in the show Arthur. It has been used in LOTS of other popular media. It is a female baby cry, but it is used for male babies in some sources, like Baby Eggs in "The Boxtrolls" or Baby Carlos in "The Hangover". It has been wide-spread, even popping up in a social studies textbook audio of all places! (See Audio below) This sound has been protested by many users on this website who feel it needs to die already. AVOID THIS SOUND LIKE THE PLAGUE, AND IF IT IS IN YOUR FAVORITE SHOW, SKIP THE PART IT IS IN!!
