This is one of Hanna-Barbera’s most prolific sound effects, and was mainly used for whenever someone would throw a bowling ball or a lasso, or even a rabbit during a magic show. It made its debut in 1958 with The Huckleberry Hound Show and would be used in most of their cartoons, before the sound made its way to other studios, mainly Warner Bros and even Disney. This sound has been used in more than 400 TV shows, films, video games, anime and others.
It’s still being used as of today; some recent media, such as the recent Super Mario games and some recent western shows, are very fond of using it. A reversed version of this sound effect, Sound Ideas, ZIP, CARTOON - BIG WHISTLE ZING IN, also exists.
