Back in April 1942, Jimmy MacDonald used a slide whistle to create a quick streak by whistle. It made its first appearance in the Donald Duck cartoon, "Donald Gets Drafted" on May 1, 1942.

In 1992, The Hollywood Edge added this whistle in the Cartoon Trax Volume 1 library, along with other Disney cartoon whistle sounds from the library. In 2014, after the bankruptcy of The Hollywood Edge, Sound Ideas took over to acquire it.

Today, it is one of the most common Cartoon Trax/Disney whistle sounds to be used in more than a thousand pieces of media.
