Originally a Universal effect, the sound was originally made by Walter Lantz in the mid 1950s for some of the Woody Woodpecker and Chilly Will cartoons.

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