  • First recorded: 1940s
  • Creator: Jimmy MacDonald
  • Owner: The Walt Disney Company (1940s-Summer 1992), The Hollywood Edge (Summer 1992-2014), Sound Ideas (2014-present)
  • Origin: Burbank, California
  • Recording location: Walt Disney Productions
  • Year debut: 1940s
  • First heard: Any Disney cartoon in the 1940s
  • Area used: Worldwide

Back in the 1940s, this sound effect was recorded by Jimmy MacDonald at the now-defunct Walt Disney Productions in Burbank, California for the Disney sound effects library. To record this sound, he used a siren whistle to create a quick whistle zip sound.

Originally a Disney effect, it was first heard in Disney cartoons in the 1940s, but it is currently to be announced which one first used it. Its first TV appearance is in The Ren & Stimpy Show episode, "The Boy Who Cried Rat" on September 8, 1991. Its first movie appearance is in the Disney animated musical film, Aladdin on November 25, 1992.

In the summer of 1992, The Hollywood Edge added this cartoon whistle zip sound effect to the Cartoon Trax Volume 1 library. In 2014, The Hollywood Edge went out of business, due to bankruptcy. After that, Sound Ideas took over to acquire it, along with other The Hollywood Edge sounds.

This sound has still been used in most media today, along with other Disney cartoon sounds from the library. It's also a common zip sound effect used in many cartoons (like SpongeBob SquarePants, The Ren & Stimpy Show, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and Harvey Girls Forever!), many live-action children shows (like Bill Nye, the Science Guy, The Big Comfy Couch, Big Time Rush, Barney & Friends) and some TVB shows in Hong Kong (like Inspector Gourmet, Ghost of Relativity, the 2010 TV series of Can't Buy Me Love and Daddy Good Deeds).

There's also another sound effect called Ascending Whistles CRT057901 from Cartoon Trax Volume 1 that has a different variation made from the same siren whistle used in this one.
