Originally a Universal effect, the sound was originally made by Walter Lantz in the mid 1950s for some of the Woody Woodpecker and Chilly Will cartoons until 1972.

It was later picked up by Hanna-Barbera in 1957, and made its way to other studios like Disney and Warner Bros. until 2001.

In 1993, Sound Ideas added this sound effect to Hanna-Barbera Sound Effects Library.

Today, it is commonly used in more than a thousand pieces of media.

Another variation of this sound called Hollywoodedge, Cartoon Boink Horn 1 SS016401 is nearly identical to this sound and can be found in The Super Single Volume 1.
