Originally recorded by Jim Faris at MGM Cartoon Studio between 1940s and 1950s, this sound effect was originally an MGM sound effect that was mainly used in some Droopy cartoons in the late 1950s, but it is unknown if it debuted there.

A reversed variation of this sound called 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).

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 since 1957, from which the sound made its way to other studios in the 1960s.
