->''"Thhhhhhpppppt! Thhhpppppt! Thhhhpppt!"''
-->-- General sound effect of the trope

When a character blows a raspberry at someone. Also called "giving someone the raspberry." Also known as the Bronx Cheer (and ''technically'' known as an "[[ExpospeakGag unvoiced linguolabial trill]]"), it is a mild taunting gesture that tends to signify immaturity in the user. Done by sticking one's tongue out, and usually placing each hand spread-fingered and thumb-in at the ears, and then blowing, making a "pthththt" sound. The origin of the term is [[UsefulNotes/BritishEnglish Cockney rhyming slang]]: "fart" -> "raspberry tart".

If they also pull their eyelid down, then it's not this trope, it's EyelidPullTaunt.

* A few examples from ''ComicBook/TheSmurfs'':
** In the comic book story "Smurphony In 'C'" (and its AnimatedAdaptation counterpart), Harmony lures Gargamel out onto a ledge over a ravine with his turlisiphone and causes him to fall over, grabbing onto the log for dear life. When Harmony threatens to play the instrument to send Gargamel to his doom, Gargamel pleads for mercy, and Harmony remembers that Papa Smurf told him that he should never kick a Smurf when he's down, so he instead razzes the evil wizard.
** In "The Smurf Not Like The Others" (also known as "Traveling Smurf"), the traveling Smurf does this to Azrael when being chased around Gargamel's house, thinking he has escaped the cat by hiding himself inside a bottle, but instead ends up taunting the cat into pushing the bottle off the shelf to break it.
** In "The Smurfnapper", a Smurf blows a raspberry to taunt Azrael into jumping out of Gargamel's house through the window, after which through some quick maneuvering the Smurf closes up the window and locks it, preventing the cat from returning inside.
