The Wilhelm scream ("Aaagh!") is a scream sound effect which was introduced in the 1951 western Distant Drums, a non-Disney film. It is often used as an audio in-joke in various works, including many animated films produced by Disney, as well as several Lucasfilm productions prior to Disney's acquisition of the company.
