This sound effect can be found on The General Series 6000 Sound Effects Library, which was made by Sound Ideas.


  • First recorded: Late 1980s
  • Creator: Alan Howarth
  • Owner: Sound Ideas (1992-present)
  • Origin: United States and Canada
  • Year debut: 1990
  • First heardAlvin and the Chipmunks (TV series) (Season 8)
  • Area used: Worldwide (Especially in the UK and Canada.)

This sound was created by Alan Howarth and it debuted in the 8th season of Alvin and the Chipmunks (TV series).

It is very similar to Sound Ideas, BIRD, ROOSTER - MORNING CALL, ANIMAL 02, which is another Series 6000 sound effect.

The title of this sound effect should not be confused with Sound Ideas, BIRD, ROOSTER - ROOSTER MORNING CALL, ANIMAL 01 from the Hanna-Barbera Sound Effects Library due to sounding similar.

This sound effect likely traces its origins to a Warner Bros. effect called WB CARTOON, ROOSTER - MORNING CALL, ANIMAL.

Clean, Full Length and Unedited Link to the Sound Effect


This sound effect, like most Warner Bros. sounds, might've been done by a voice actor (possibly Mel Blanc), rather than an actual rooster.
