Info

  • First recorded: 1978
  • Creator: John Moran
  • Owner: The Hollywood Edge (1990-2014), Sound Ideas (2014-present)
  • Origin: United States
  • Year debut: August 10, 1990
  • First heard: Air America (a TriStar film)
  • Area used: Worldwide

This sound effect was recorded by John Moran in 1978 and voiced by an Australian girl named Astoria Morgan, who was the daughter of a family friend of a Soundelux employee. Morgan had recorded two separate laughs that were combined together to give the illusion of two children laughing simultaneously. Morgan was 11 at the time of the recording.

This sound made its first appearance in the TriStar film, Air America on August 10, 1990. 3 days later, The Hollywood Edge later added it to the The Premiere Edition Volume 1 library. Later in 2014, Sound Ideas took over to acquire it after the bankruptcy of The Hollywood Edge.

It is also known as the "Diddy Laugh" (which is named after Diddy Kong when the laugh sound effect is used in the intro for Diddy Kong Racing). So far, over 50 million pieces of media use this sound effect and this children laughing sound is very popular.

There are variations of this sound like Hollywoodedge, Two Young Kids Giggle PE143501, which is a duplicate of this one. There's also Hollywoodedge, Fast Juicy Pie Splat CRT019701 from Cartoon Trax Volume 1 (also made by The Hollywood Edge) that includes a portion of this sound effect. Even Hollywoodedge, Laughing Several Ch OFS013601 and OFS013701 from The Off Stage Set Sound Effects Library includes an echo-ey version of this sound effect.
