Finally, you can mix The Price Is Right and CSI:Miami

Instants! Fun is a smorgasbord of single-serving-site sounds, a central web collector of effects, clips and quotes, starting with the daddy of them all (previously), INSTANT RIMSHOT! (called BADUMTSS! here to put it first in the alphabetical arrangement) and including most of the sounds featured here, and more! (via)

A pretty comprehensive collection, although a few of the sounds aren't the 'original version' (odd, since this Estonian site doesn't otherwise worry about Intellectual Property issues). Some less-than-perfect labeling: the "Price Is Right Loser" sound is "SAD TUBA" and "WAKAWAKA" is Pac Man, not Fozzie Bear. Musically, "Yakety Sax" is labeled "BENNY HILL" (sigh), "Mahna Mahna" is "MUPPETS", and "Surfin' Bird" is "BIRD IS THE WORD". The Rick Roll (ahem) is here too, labeled as EPIC?! And YEAHHHH! is out of alpha order because it's the CSI:Miami/Who YEAHHH. No Billy Mays or Ed McMahon yet, but the Instants! guy is taking suggestions. And yes, there's a portable version (iPhone support coming soon, if Steve Jobs will let him).

And the sound files are allowed to overlap while playing, allowing you to mix it up as fast as your mouse can move. Victory!

Also, it needs to be HTML5 so that people can use it on their iPads on the go.

I don't think the Mortal Kombat sounds are the 'original version' either, and 'Mahna Mahna' isn't the whole song, and 'Bird is the Word' is the Family Guy version, not the Trashmen one, and, man, I'm a nerd.

Labeling the button that plays Yakety Sax as "Benny Hill" is not less than perfect in this context. It is extra perfect.

I added the (sigh) knowing I'd be in the minority on this opinion (and out of step with The Internet), but I believe that "Yakety Sax" itself is MUCH MORE than "the Benny Hill Song"

After the voice said "virus has been detected" in Advast I played the rimshot and it seemed natural

It's the same Instant Rimshot link as the previous posts used. Must be an ad on the page; I've had other older links compromised. But that's just ONE MORE REASON THE INSTANTS! AGGREGATOR* PAGE IS SO COOL.

and why couldn't I remember the word "aggregator" when I was writing this post? my mind is seriously slipping. next thing I'll be forgetting other MeFites like CWittyMike...

I'm still trying to find the sound that the Flintstones make when they 'rev up' their feet before the car gets going.

You have no idea how useful it is to have these running in the background in a Chemistry Lecture and hit the right one at the pedagocially appropriate point.....

They have a soundboard for that. H-B and Rhino Records put out a CD of toon SFX a few years ago; 90+ sounds and some annoying voice tracks NOT by the original voices, but a treasure at under $10 used or $20 new. But if you must have everything, you can get a collection of 2,243 sounds (I didn't know they made that many; I'd have guessed about 300, you hear some repeated so often) for only $495.
