This sound effect was recorded by Jimmy MacDonald in 1934 and it was made from a Jew's harp. It's essentially the same sound effect as HIT, CARTOON - FLAT BONK from the Hanna-Barbera Sound Effects Library, but this copy repeats and isn't cut-off.

Originally a Disney sound effect, it debuted in the Silly Symphony short, The Tortoise and the Hare on January 5, 1935.

In 1992, The Hollywood Edge added this sound effect to its Cartoon Trax Volume 1 library. After the bankruptcy of The Hollywood Edge in 2014, Sound Ideas took over to acquire this sound effect.

Today, it is commonly heard in more than hundreds of media, along with other Disney bouncing sounds from the library.
