Toot, Whistle, Plunk and Boom is an educational Adventures in Music animated short film produced by Walt Disney Productions, and originally released to theaters by Buena Vista Distribution on November 10, 1953. It features Mr. Owl discussing the study of musical instruments - the subject of the day. Mr. Owl explains to the class (and the viewer) that all music originates from four core sounds: toot (brass), whistle (woodwind), plunk (strings) and boom (percussion).
Toot, Whistle, Plunk, and Boom has been listed on Jerry Beck's 50 Greatest Cartoons list, where in a survey of numerous animation historians and people in the field, the short was voted the 29th best animated short.
Both of the Adventures in Music shorts found a long lasting legacy when footage was re-used for the interstitials of the Disney Sing Along Songs video series.
