The most disturbing sound from the General 6000 library, next to the female baby cry. I always hate hearing this since after watching the Greek Mythology for Students episode about Medusa and the Disney film Hercules one school day, it drove me insane after hearing it SO MANY TIMES. But of course this sound is also used in animation since 1993, which means it's a very common and overused SFX that I can't escape

EXTREME NEGATIVE RATING FOR MIKIDEX!!! MIKI HAS A GIGANTIC PHOBIA OF THIS SFX AND DOES NOT WANT TO HEAR IT FOR AS LONG AS SHE LIVES, AND NEITHER DO I!

from when watching anything of the post 1993 era of animation. The worst examples of this sound being used in animation constantly was in Perseus and Medusa of Greek Mythology for Students since they use the sound more than 20 or 30 calculated times, ALL IN ONE SCENE!! COME ON!!! ARE YOU SERIOUSLY DOING THIS JUST TO ANNOY ME WITH THIS AWFUL SOUND ON PURPOSE?!?!?! YOU MONSTERS!!!

This sound effect was first used in Marsupilami back in 1993. Then other studios took this dreadful sound for use in media starting in about 1995. It even effected anime to use it as well, (Kill Me Baby and Gabriel Dropout) and that's how the SFX became a common use for female horror screams.

DO NOT, I REPEAT, DO NOT TAKE THE RISK OF HEARING THIS SATANIC AND NIGHTMARISH FEMALE SCREAM! THERE IS A GOOD CHANCE IT IS IN GOOD MEDIA LIKE HERCULES AND SPONGEBOB, IF YOU PICK MEDIA THAT HAS THIS SOUND AND YOU LIKE IT, SKIP THE SCENE THE SCREAM IS HEARD AND OVERALL, AVOID IT LIKE THE PLAGUE OR IT WILL HAUNT YOU, HIGHLY DISTURB YOU, AND GET STUCK IN YOUR HEAD FOR A FEW HOURS! MY GOD, IT'S DISTURBING! D:<
