Back in 1942, Jimmy MacDonald uses a Jew's harp to create 7 different types of twangy boings. Originally a Disney sound effect, it made its debut in the Donald Duck cartoon, "The Vanishing Private" on September 25, 1942.

In the summer of 1992, The Hollywood Edge added this cartoon boing sound effect to the Cartoon Trax Volume 1 library. In 2014, Sound Ideas took over to acquire it after the bankruptcy of The Hollywood Edge.

Today, it is one of the most common cartoon boing sounds to be heard in more than a thousand pieces of media.

The 1st boing is more popular than the last 6 boings, so it is heard in most media. The last 6 boings are sometimes heard in some media. The 7th boing is the same as BOING, CARTOON - BOING WITH QUIVER from the Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends Sound Effects Library and COMEDY, BOING - BIG J HARP SPROING from the Classic TV Sound Effects Library.
