Sound effects heard "elsewhere"
« on: January 21, 2007, 05:13:42 PM »
In case you didn't read the title, I'm interested in where you have heard game show sound effects, but NOT on other game shows.

Example: I have a clip on my site of a Beakman's World game show spoof with 4 Scrabble sound effects and one from Pyramid.

Well, MG 7x used the TPiR bells (someone whispers to Brandon, then smacks him upside the head)...oh really? Damn!

;-)

Seriously, there's a "Fresh Prince" episode featuring a fictional game show, "Double Trouble" (hosted by Bob Eubanks). Not quite a sound effect, but the think music is "Supermarket Sweep"'s Round Robin music.

EDIT: I've heard the Wheel puzzle chimes on NBA games before.

I can't recall the titles of either individual episode, but here goes...

Spongebob Squarepants: When Spongebob threw an "alien" into [IIRC] Sandy's rocket, the TPIR bell sounded as a display read "01".

Dexter's Laboratory: I forgot what character it was, but they had a boggled look on their face, and the J! "boop boop boop" sounded.

While at an antique store, the cuckoo heard from a cuckoo clock sounded like the cuckoo heard on various Bob Stewart-produced programs.
The buzzer heard at a basketball game I attended last night was reminiscent of the tacky buzzer for the Peter Marshall-hosted episodes of The Hollywood Squares.
And someone's car horn in the supermarket parking lot which was tooting, tooting, tooting sure was a dead ringer from the time's up indicator on the 1990s editions of Pictionary.

Not as ridiculous as Don's, but I do know the Round Robin from the first season or two of Ruprecht's "Sweep" was also featured on "The Jeffersons" many years earlier in a game show spoof called "Wheel Of Forever".

Ya know, there's dry humor, and then there is positively dehydrated.

Enh. Opinions vary. It's a little played out, for me. But it's probably just me.

EDIT: Let me qualify myself. I like Don. I just think the streak he's been on of late is more of a rut.

I thought the whole point of 'dry humor' was that it was funny. I don't see the humor in "I'm going to circumspectly poke fun at the original topic by saying "I heard the $20,000 Pyramid bell when I checked in at the Peoria Holiday Inn!" If you're going to be funny, be funny. If not, don't excrete in the punch bowl.

The only one that comes to my mind:

The buzz-in noise on Hollywood Showdown can be heard on some older Windows computers as an error noise.

Here are some: I have heard the "Times up" horns from the 1998 Hollywood Squares in the Hey Arnold ep "Rhonda Goes Broke." I have heard the Scrabble buzzer on an ep of "Saved by the Bell." I have heard the Eazy Az 123 think music on Black Family Channel during a segment called "Think About It."

However, it's been so long that I've seen Jackpot that I can't even begin to be sure that it's sound effect is in that song or not. Can anyone validate?

I checked the internet and found another sound they used from Windows. (The one they played when they were in the middle of a game on Friday.) So perhaps the rest of them are too.

Gee, there's an easy way of getting sound effects; take 'em right off a PC!

Actually, I've heard it somewhere else too; in a Burger King commercial. (It's stock music, but darn good stock music!)

As for King For A Day, it sounds similar, but I don't think it's the same sound effect. (One of my favorite songs of all-time, BTW)

Speaking of which, that reminded me of something. There's one GS sound effect I know is in a song; "Gone, Go On" by The Pinker Tones. At various times in the song, they play the door #4 intro sound effect from LMAD '84.
