Here's 42 minutes and 27 glorious seconds of audio sound effects from Warner Bros. cartoons. And, should you want more (and of course you do), here's one hour and 17 seconds worth from Hanna Barbera studios.

Looney Tunes SoundSource is home to many of my favorite Warner Bros. character audio clips.

From the title, I thought this was going to be a post about old modems.

I just listened to the WB compilation all the way through, instead of going for a walk in the spring sunshine. No regrets.

When I was in college radio, in the long-ago 70s, I got access to a then-rare LP of Hanna-Barbara Sound Effects (distributed to selected radio stations for promotional purposes) and got my most brilliant creative idea. George Carlin's original "Seven Words You Can't Say on Television" was a big deal at the time and one radio station had gotten heavily fined for playing it at 1AM. So I took selected sounds from the Hanna Barbera collection and edited them into the Carlin monologue, substituting specific sounds for words (BONK for fuck, BOING for shit, SPLAT for piss, CLAPPITYCLAPPITY for motherfucker, etc.). Extreme bleepage. The college station had given me a timeslot opposite Dr. Demento because of my personal collection of weird records (I had previously met the Good Dr. with a short stack of vinyl - he found one he didn't have himself, borrowed it, taped it, returned it and aired it on his show) and the "Seven SFX" tape was a regular feature. Sadly, after I graduated and listened to Dr. D for the first time in over a year, I found that somebody else had copied my concept - with inferior non H-B sounds - and he was playing THAT. Sigh. I've long since lost my tape of the original, but I continue to insist to the world I thought of it first.

So what is the legality of using these in projects? Are most of them out of copyright?

I can’t figure out what it is at all. It says you can download "5 discs". What discs?

These discs for H-B and these for Looney Tunes.

It's a commercial product, CDs full of the sound effects.

The "more" links on YouTube for the video descriptions have links to Mega fileshare copies of the MP3s from the disc sets.

So, just some jackass.

I previously had a vague idea about what's involved in foley work, but now I see that it would be the best job EVAR.
