It was originally an MGM sound effect which made its debut in "That's My Mommy" (a Tom & Jerry short) in November 19, 1955. After the MGM cartoon studio shut down, they took the sound to their animation studio "Hanna-Barbera Productions" (along with several other MGM cartoon sounds) and used the sound as their trademark in most of their cartoons (like The Flintstones, The Huckleberry Hound Show and The New Scooby-Doo Movies.) It would later make its way to other studios since like Warner Bros., DePatie-Freleng Enterprises, Bill Melendez Productions, Walt Disney Television Animation, Universal Studios and many others. Today, It has still been used in most media (like SpongeBob SquarePants, The Simpsons, Teen Titans Go! and Jellystone!).

Identical copies of this sound are Cartoon Streaks 2 SS016502 from The Super Single Volume 1, which is exactly the same sound effect, and a reversed version of this sound called ZIP, CARTOON - QUICK WHISTLE ZIP IN, HIGH, and it's a Hanna-Barbera sound, but was not included in the library, ZIP, CARTOON - RICCO ZIP IN 01 can be found on Rocky and Bullwinkle and Friends Sound Effects Library. A low-quality version and reversed sound effect variation are ZIP, CARTOON - QUICK WHISTLE ZIP IN, both from the same library. There's also a anime sound effect called H-B ZIP, CARTOON - ECHOEY ZIP, which is a echoey version of this sound, used in some anime media. It shouldn't be confused with the similar-sounding CARTOON, ZIP - QUICK ZIP, which was not featured on Warner Bros. Sound Effects Library. There’s an almost 99.99% chance you heard that sound before.
