This sound effect can be found on The Premiere Edition Volume 1, which was made by The Hollywood Edge. It shouldn't be confused with Short Elephant Trum CRT012903 from Cartoon Trax Volume 1, which is a low pitched version of the third trumpet.


  • First recorded: Between mid and late 1980s
  • Creator: N/A
  • Owner: The Hollywood Edge (1990-2014), Sound Ideas (2014-present)
  • Origin: United States
  • Year debut: June 15, 1990
  • First heard: Gremlins 2: The New Batch (a Warner Bros film)
  • Area used: Worldwide

This sound was probably first recorded between mid and late 1980s. It sounds like a person blaring into a brass instrument rather than an actual elephant, but it's unknown if it really was an elephant or not.

It made its first appearance in Gremlins 2: The New Batch and it was later heard in most media.
