This sound effect was recorded by Jimmy MacDonald in the 1930s and was made from a bell. It was originally a Disney sound effect that was used as one of Disney's trademark bonks in their cartoons and movies (like Peter Pan and An Extremely Goofy Movie). It was also used for when an anvil falling on a character's head.

The Hollywood Edge would later add it to its Cartoon Trax Volume 1 library in 1992. After the bankruptcy of The Hollywood Edge in 2014, Sound Ideas took over to acquire this sound effect. It is commonly used in media today (like The Peanuts Movie and Sherlock Gnomes), along with other Disney bang sound effects from the library.
