Originally recorded by Jim Faris at MGM Cartoon Studio in Culver City, California between 1940s and 1950s, this sound effect was originally an MGM sound effect that debuted in "That's My Mommy" (a Tom & Jerry short) on November 19, 1955. Later, this sound was mainly used in more Tom & Jerry cartoons, as well as Droopy cartoons.

After the 2 men lost their jobs at MGM (due to the shutdown of the MGM cartoon studio), they took the sound to their animation studio "Hanna-Barbera Productions" (along with several other MGM cartoon sounds) and would use the sound in most of their cartoons (like The Flintstones, The Yogi Bear Show, The Jetsons and Wacky Races.), from which the sound made its way to other studios in the 1960s. It's also a common zip sound effect used in many cartoons (like Garfield and Friends, Bobby's World, Rocko's Modern Life, SpongeBob SquarePants and many others.) and many live-action children shows (like Sesame Street, Barney & Friends, Big Time Rush, The Doodlebops and The Wiggles).

A reversed variation of this sound called H-B ZIP, CARTOON - QUICK WHISTLE ZIP IN 02, and it is a Hanna-Barbera sound, but was not featured in the library, ZIP, CARTOON - RICCO ZIP IN 02 (R & B) can be found on Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends Sound Effects Library. Another variation of this sound called Cartoon Streaks 1 SS016501 can be found on The Super Single Volume 1, which is exactly the same sound effect. Even a lower pitched and reversed sound effect variation of this sound ZIP, CARTOON - QUICK WHISTLE ZIP IN, LOW exists and debuted in the Droopy cartoon "Blackboard Jumble" (1957). It shouldn't be confused with the Anime Zip Sound.
