  • This is one of many sounds that TV Tropes collectively refers to as "Most Annoying Sound". The page itself even has a picture of Baby Mario in a bubble crying, due to it being heavily used in the Super Nintendo game Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island. It's still being used as of today, among other baby crying sounds.
