  • Owner: Hanna-Barbera (1958-2001), Sound Ideas, (1993-present)
  • Origin: TBA
  • Year debut: 1958
  • First heard: The Huckleberry Hound Show
  • Area used: Worldwide

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.

It’s still being used as of today, with some recent media such as the recent Super Mario games and some recent western shows being very fond of using it.
