This is a list of stock sound effects used in The Drillimation Series. It should be noted that the Miami Spanish dub of Baby Alive directly rips these from the Drillimation games and anime and uses these as part of the backing track, as the dub is unauthorized. Many of the sound effects used often come from the Hanna-Barbera Sound Effects Library and The General Series 6000 libraries from Sound Ideas, but other libraries are used as well, such as selections from The Premiere Edition Volume 1 and Cartoon Trax Volume 1 by The Hollywood Edge.

Hanna-Barbera Sound Effects Library

Several of the classic Hanna-Barbera sound effects pop up in the games and anime, with Drillimation gaining its experience from working with Hanna-Barbera on The GoGang and the English dub of Angry German Kid. These sounds were used sparingly in Angry German Kid and Star Trigon, and began being used more often in Lucky Star onwards. Starting from the 2003 Mr. Driller anime, the sounds started phasing out, being rarely used and only showing up once or twice an episode. Some Hanna-Barbera sounds (alongside other Sound Ideas audio) also show up in the default libraries of Driller Engine.
