Up to and including the 2007-2008 season, each episode would include a different Langley Falls Gazette headline, each of which was comical and satirical (examples include "President finally gets joke about last name" and "Israel pulls out of Gaza, Gaza not pregnant."
As of the 2008-2009 season, the intro sequence has been completely redone with more modern animation. There are a few minor changes to what happens during the sequence. For instance, Haley puts a peace sign post-it on Stan which Francine subsequently removes, and Klaus kicks Stan his car keys. The old "different newspaper" gag is removed, and instead each intro features Roger in the car with Stan, wearing a different outfit in each episode.
