Since then, it was used as MGM's trademark ricochet sound in the cartoons (along with GUN, RICOCHET - SHORT THIN RICOCHET, BULLET 02) from the 1940's to the 1950's, but, after the closure of the MGM cartoon studio in 1957, Hanna and Barbera took the sound effect and used it as their trademark ricochet sound for their animated shows (like The Huckleberry Hound Show, The Flintstones, The Jetsons and The New Scooby-Doo Movies), It would later make its way to other studios since like Jay Ward Productions, DePatie-Freleng Enterprises, DIC Entertainment, Spumco, and many others.
