The Wilhelm scream is a scream sound effect which was introduced in the 1951 film Distant Drums. It is used as an in-joke, as it appeared in many animated films, most notably from Disney and DreamWorks Animation, comedy films, action films and all Star Wars films. It has appeared in many Pixar films, and is most recently used in The Radiator Springs 500½. The running gag is similar to other Pixar running gags, A113 and the Pizza Planet truck.
