Disney was known for having familiar classic sound effects in their work, mainly used until the mid-80s, though some newer common sounds are included here as well. Many of these sound effects were developed by foley pioneer Jimmy MacDonald, whose voice can be faintly recognized for many of the vocal effects listed below. This is a list of such distinctive sounds that are used more than once in Disney films.

Goofy holler ("Yaaah-hoo-hoo-hoo-hooey!!!")
