  52. Hi
    I want to add a cartoon running sound affect to a cartoon clip I produced, but I don’t know what the original Foley guys did to make it. It’s that sort of plasticky, thumping sound you hear when characters run or walk fast. It’s a common cartoon sound: The early Simpsons used it and it was heard a lot in the Hanna-Barbera cartoons of the early ‘60s to present. Does anyone know how I can duplicate that sound?
