I’m working on a screenplay and I want one of the characters to beep a horn in a very recognizable fashion, but I don’t know the name of the tune.
Think of when someone knocks on your door in an attempt to be cute. Give it a try.
Knock knock-knock knock knock…pause…knock knock.
What is this called? I remember being on the playground sitting in a circle with other kids trying to determine who will be “it.” One of the rhymes to select the person had this same riff…but the rhyme was “Skunk in the barnyard…P.U., somebody did it, not you.” Or something along those lines.
I think Bugs Bunny made a habit of being highly annoying in the form of this little riff.
