Aside from how funny the "Snow White" show's raspberry SOUNDED, another reason for the RIOTOUS audience reaction could have been the fact that the studio audience was actually SEEING someone MAKING that sound effect!
Many times the sound effect that the listening audience heard at home may have sounded funny or at least interesting, but actually SEEING the sound effect being made often brought howls of laughter from a studio audience.
(Case in point: Did you ever SEE Mel Blanc make the Maxwell car noises on TV talk shows? It was HILARIOUS!)
