Soundeffects Wiki

This is a ricochet sound used by sound designer and editor Phil Kaye. Although Kaye used it as his trademark ricochet sound, it's originally a Capitol Records effect designed for the 1949 children's record "Bugs Bunny in Storyland". There are two versions: the original version with a cork pop preceding the ricochet, and an alternate version with another sound preceding it. An edited version of this shouldn't be confused for the 2nd part of CARTOON, ZIP - WIND UP AND ZIP OUT. A slowed-down edit of this sound was released on the Valentino library, known as Valentino, Zip 02.
