An Episode Titlecard is the unique graphic used at or near the beginning of ABC's Once Upon a Time beginning with the second episode of the first season. One is also used near the beginning of every episode of Once Upon a Time in Wonderland.

The Episode Titlecards feature a character, creature, location or item featured (or not) in the episode. This unique graphic appears under the "Once Upon a Time" title in the blue forest, or in a Wonderland red and white chessboard surrounded by mushrooms and with a mountainous background, under the "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland" title.

Once Upon a TimeEdit

Season OneEdit

"Pilot" is the only episode of Season One to not feature a title card. It instead features four slides that set the premise for the series. The subsequent episodes and their featured item are listed below:

Season TwoEdit

Every episode of Season Two feature a title card tailored to the episode. Two images from Season One, that of Red Riding Hood and that of Rumplestiltskin's spinning wheel, have been reused, along with twenty new slides.

Season ThreeEdit

The majority of Season Three's title cards featured a slightly altered forest background, however, the reason for this has not been confirmed.

Season FourEdit

Every title card of the first half of Season Four features the forest background with falling snow. The title card for "A Tale of Two Sisters" is the generic form of subsequent title cards.
