Today marks the 12th anniversary of the passing of Don Martin, "MAD Magazine's Maddest Artist." Don's visual style was arguably exceeded by his "endless capacity for newly coined, onomatopoetic sound effects,"
leading to the inevitable question: Web 2.0 Site or Don Martin Sound Effect?
An exhaustive list of Don Martin sound effects from his MAD strips (not his own books, sadly*) are captured and cited at the Don Martin Dictionary
(an old link can be found previously
on the blue). On a related vein, why doesn't a Don Martin soundboard exist yet?
*My favorite Don Martin sound effect? It was from one of his books, maybe Don Martin Forges Ahead: FZZZZWONT! It's the sound of a blender being used by an airport bartender to mix drinks...and also the name of a passenger at the airport, Mr. Arthur J. Fizzwont.
