    The other famous falling and screaming guy


    Hi

    I'm looking for a specific scream. Not the Wilhelm or Howie scream.
    I was told it's based on a man falling of a roof... ???
    I'm gonna do my best to type it down how it should "sound"
    -> "aaahhhhoohhhoooohohoooohohooo" (silly he lol)
    It's most popular in comedy movies and cartoons when they fall off a cliff or being blown away by a little BIG bomb.
    I know it's not much to go on but i hope to find it somewhere.

    Anyways thanks for the help and cheers wink

    PS: I think it has been worked into a weapon in Dawn of War 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yrLQEC0OkZY&feature;=youtu.be&t;=24m50s (I was watching this video while answering here grin )

    EDIT: shame on me, I stopped reading your post at "Wilhelm"!

    No this ain't it. It is more of a funny falling scream...
    I have ever been told it is really based on a man falling from a roof with that particulary sound when he fell.
    so its more of yaaaaahhheeewhooohoooooo vibe...you know like in the cartoons..when they fall or getting smacked by a hammer on the thumb...i can't describe it better then that sorry

    thanks though for the reply

    Sounds like something from Laurel And Hardy, a sort of yodelling Hardy does when he gets hit or falls.

    indeed... i love L&H;, it's in that category of movies...but where can i find a sample? and why am i still thinking of that man that falls of a roof (a true story, they took his scream for many funny falling moments yet in those days it was a accident).

    I'm sure he means the one that begins at 2:38. I've also been looking for it.
