This sound effect was likely recorded by Jimmy MacDonald in the 1930s and was made from a bell. It was originally a Disney sound effect that debuted in 1941 with the Donald Duck short Chef Donald and it was used as one of Disney's trademark bonks in their cartoons and movies (like Peter Pan and An Extremely Goofy Movie). It was also used for when an anvil landed on a character's head.

The Hollywood Edge would later add it to its Cartoon Trax Volume 1 library in 1992. After the bankruptcy of The Hollywood Edge in 2014, Sound Ideas took over to acquire this sound effect. It is commonly used in media today (like The Peanuts Movie,Captain Underpants: The First Epic Movie (2017) and Sherlock Gnomes), along with other Disney bang sound effects from the library.
