This sound effect can be found on Hanna-Barbera Sound Effects Library, which was made by Sound Ideas.


  • First recorded: Likely 1950s
  • Creator: TBA
  • Owner: NBC (1956-1961), Hanna-Barbera (1961-2001), Sound Ideas (1993-present)
  • Origin: United States
  • Year debut: August 24, 1956
  • First heard: "Outcast Marbles" (a Gumby episode)
  • Area served: Worldwide

It was mainly used for when someone bounces around or an object bounces like a ball, generally used for a comedic effect, but can oddly enough be used as a hit sound as well.

Its earliest usage is in "Outcast Marbles", a Gumby episode from 1956, and later would find its way into the TV Spots library, first used in the Popeye cartoon "When There's a Will" in 1960. It would later find its way into Hanna-Barbera's sound library, and its earliest usage by them was The Flintstones episode "The Picnic", first broadcast on December 15, 1961, and would be used in some of their cartoons before the sound made its way to other studios like Disney, Warner Bros. and Paramount Pictures. It is often used in modern media today.

This sound was originally part of Sound Ideas, COMEDY - MONTAGE OF VARIOUS COMEDY EFFECTS 01, as heard on the Universal Studios Sound Effects Library. A looped version of this sound effect can be found on Classic TV Sound Effects Library, called Sound Ideas, COMEDY, BOUNCE - CONTINUOUS SPRINGING BOUNCE. There are also a high pitched version of this sound called H-B BOING, CARTOON - HOYT'S LITTLE BOING and a very high pitched one called H-B BOING, CARTOON - LITTLE BOING, which cannot be found on the Hanna-Barbera Sound Effects Library.
