Felix the cat whistling?

Felix the cat is a character on The Simpsons who is known for whistling in the opening titles of every episode of the show. When the opening titles begin, Felix is on screen whistling, and he will stay on-screen whistling through the closing credits as well, as long as the episode airs. However, the same title sequence, including the whistling cat, has been used throughout the show's run, from the first episode, "Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire", to the final episode, "The M-Men".

Although the title whistling is a Simpsons trademark, the whistling never actually appears in any of the Simpsons episodes. However, many fans claim that there are moments in various episodes where the whistling is heard, even if the music is absent. It is not entirely certain whether the whistling is actually intended by the animators, or if it was done on purpose by someone else.

On its first appearance, the opening title sequence begins with the show's title (simpsons [name]) flashing onscreen, followed by a title animation. Bart is then seen entering the Simpson house, while the doorbell rings. As Bart opens the door, the first episode's title is displayed onscreen, with Felix whistling. The episode title then fades to black, and the title animation continues, depicting Bart and Lisa in different scenes. This is followed by the ending titles, which consist of a shot of the three Simpson characters, Bart, Lisa, and Maggie, against a blue backdrop. The episode title, followed by "The Simpsons" in black lettering, appears onscreen as the closing titles begin, followed by the end credits.

Starting with "The Way We Werk", on April 11, 1996, the opening title sequence changed. The episode title is no longer displayed while Felix is whistling, as it is in the previous sequence. Bart still opens the door to the Simpson house, but the title is not displayed until the first scene of the episode begins. The episode title is displayed in the next scene.

As the opening credits begin, Homer stands up, and walks over to the picture window. The title is displayed, as well as the credit sequences for the opening, ending, and closing titles.
