It was originally an MGM sound effect that debuted in the Oscar-nominated cartoon "Piece on Earth" on December 9, 1939. Since then, it was used as MGM's trademark ricochet sound in the cartoons (along with Sound Ideas, GUN, RICOCHET - SHORT THIN RICOCHET, BULLET 02) from the 1940's and 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. It would later make its way to other studios since like Jay Ward Productions, DePatie-Freleng Enterprises, Walt Disney Television Animation, Spumco, and many others.

Identical copies of this sound are RICOCHET - TOM AND JERRY GENE DEITCH CARTOON RICCO 01 on the Turner Entertainment Co. Sound Effects Library, GUN, RICOCHET - SINGLE RICOCHET, BULLET 13 and Sound Ideas, GUN, RICOCHET - SINGLE RICOCHET, BULLET 22 on the Universal Studios Sound Effects Library. Two variations of the sound called ZIP, CARTOON - RICCO ZIP OUT 01 and 02 can both be found on the Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends Sound Effects Library.

It's currently the most common ricochet sound heard in media today outside of the Tom & Jerry and Hanna-Barbera franchises from WB Animation.
