Hash Browns is a Side Dish in Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2!!.


Originally named "hashed brown potatoes" in 1888, hash browns are made simply by shredding potatoes and then frying them in a pan. Because of the intense crackling sound that accompanies the process of preparing hash browns, many Hollywood studios in the 1930s used this as the sound for large fires in movies, as audio design was a new concept for many productions.

Ultimately the Idaho Potato Farmers Union grew to hate this trend as many commercials in the late 1940s for potatoes drew accidental laughs as the sound of the potato in the frying pan sounded exactly like the Bellview Tower Fire scene in the hit Hollywood classic, "Mabel and the Fire Brigade." In 1949 the union sued dozens of Hollywood studios, claiming unfair use of produce that ultimately hurt their business.

As a result of this incident, the Hayes Code of 1951 was signed that made it illegal for hash browns to be used as a sound effect for any entertainment media. As a funny side result, the sound of potatoes cooked in movies, advertisements, and television shows today are actually recordings of sneakers rubbed with lubricant resting on a hot plate.
