Throughout Futurama some character would say this "NO!!!!!!!!" in some melodramatic way that it is actually funny to hear it or catch note of it in an episode.

Calculon does it several times in his show. Professor Farnsworth did it in "Mars University", Planet Express Ship did it in "Love and Rocket". I've read the comics and saw Fry and Bender doing that NO!!!! sometimes.

Do you do the melodramatic NO!!!! in real life?   laff

Which was a reference to Kirk shouting "KHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AN!" in Star Trek II, just so you know.

Apparently, the "official" name for the "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO OO!" shout is the Wilhelm Scream.  It's rather a staple of melodrama, but no.  No one has ever said it seriously in real life.

Actually, the Wilhelm Scream is an actual scream (or six screams in a single take) recorded by a man in a sound effects studio.

The screams were named 'Wilhelm' after a character in 'Charge at Feather River,' one of the first to be dubbed over with such a scream. Over time, they have been used in many Warner Bros. films.  They're notorious because no one ever screams like that, just like no one ever goes 'Noooooooooo!'  Well, I do... but only in slow motion to be sarcastic...

I never shout "NO" when something bad happens to me.  I sometimes say that when I'm making fun of a movie or a TV Show I don't like where I see a character in a bad situation.

Darth Vader showed us all how it should be done.

I'm mellodramatic enough without the scream, thank you very much.

Fry also did the melodramatic "NO!!!!!" when aliens attacked his sandcastle.  Plus, Calculon used that "NO!!!!" when he was acting in that movie Bender, Zoidberg, and Harold Zoid made. Thought I'd point that out.

I think that was just a scream....

I've seen it done a couple times seriously on TV.  The one I remember as impressing me was on an old 80's show named Riptide,, when Joe Penny's character sees a boat (on which are some friends of his) explode suddenly.  It wasn't as drawn out as the melodramatic ones, it only lasted maybe three "beats," but the way he did it was very intense - you really felt the seriousness of it, that you were seeing a person so shocked by the suddenness of a disaster that his first reaction is to deny it, to try to make the universe take it back.  I had a very clear feeling of, "Oh, this is the real thing that those long ones are comical exaggerations of."

I tend to yell "No!" at things (like a glass bowl sliding off a counter toward a tile floor, or at my dog who's about to sweep the coffee table clear with her mighty Tail of Death(tm)) as if I could will them to obey me, so I could see myself maybe using it if I witnessed something truly horrible and shocking.

Hermes did the "No!!!!!" thing after the kid tried to imitate him doing the limbo and broke his back, in A Flight to Remember.

I am sure Kirk did it on an old Star Trek episode too.  Always a highlight for me when calculon does it.
