It was originally an MGM sound effect that debuted in 1939 with the MGM cartoon The Mad Maestro. Since then, it is used as MGM's trademark cartoon bang sound in the Tom and Jerry and Droopy Dog cartoons. After the closure of the MGM cartoon studio in 1957, Hanna and Barbera took the sound to their animation studio and used it as their trademark sound for the animated shows like The Flintstones and The Tom & Jerry Kids Show. It would make its way to other studios in the 1960's.

It is one of the most common cartoon bang sounds heard in media today.
