Wilhelm Scream Compilation

Wilhelm Scream Compilation

The Wilhelm scream is a frequently-used film and television stock sound effect first used in 1951 for the film Distant Drums. The effect gained new popularity (its use often becoming an in-joke) after it was used in Star Wars and many other blockbuster films as well as television programs and video games. Family Guy is one of those shows. The scream is often used when someone is pierced with an arrow, falls to his death from a great height, or is thrown from an explosion.

In "The Perfect Castaway", Peter Griffin recalls driving a DeLorean into a wall a la Back to the Future. As the people inside run out in flames, one of them screams.

In "No Chris Left Behind", during their fight, Peter and Ernie the Giant Chicken smash through the bottom of a monoplane, replacing the pilot, screams as he is thrust into the air.

In "North by North Quahog", during the car chase, Peter avoids a piano in the center of the mall. Just before the priests working with Mel Gibson crash into it, the pianist jumps out of the way screaming.

In "Long John Peter", during the pirate duel between Griffin, his band of pirates, and Shelley Boothbishop, the cannon in Peter's car accidentally fires upwards, breaking a utility pole in half and the famous scream is heard as the worker on it falls.

In Blue Harvest an Imperial Stormtrooper screams when a wall bursts.

In "Dial Meg for Murder", when Drunk Billy, the helicopter pilot for Quahog 5 News, runs over the water skiers in the montage, the scream is heard.

Mirroring a similar scene in Return of the Jedi, It's A Trap! features the scream when one of Jabba the Hutt's henchmen fall into the Sarlacc pit.

In "Amish Guy", the scream can be heard when the roller coaster crashes due to Peter's weight.

In "Internal Affairs", the scream is heard during the chicken fight, when Peter and the Giant Chicken travel back in time to the days of cowboys and Indians, and they toss a cowboy overboard.

The scream can be heard during Peter and Homer's fight in "The Simpsons Guy".
