In media of all types, but especially comics and cartoons, the "innocent" whistle is a main staple, often played for humor. [[AliceAndBob Alice]], feeling mischievous, decides to, say, throw a snowball at Bob. Bob is knocked off his feet. He pulls himself up and spins around to see no one around in the area but Alice, who puts her hands behind her back and lifts herself up onto her tiptoes and back down several times while whistling. Sometimes Alice would be also be twiddling her thumbs, point her eyes upward/away, putting her hands in her pockets, or a halo would appear above her head -- or any combination thereof. In comics, usually only a single note symbolizing the whistle is written. The Not-So-Innocent Whistle can also happen after suppressing a traumatic moment, or any other instance of hiding something.

* Several times on ''WesternAnimation/{{Kaeloo}}'' when [[TheDitz Stumpy]] screws something up or does something he wasn't supposed to, he'll look away and start whistling. [[RealityEnsues Not that the person he's trying to fool will fall for this.]]

* At the start of the fourth season of ''SavedByTheBell: The New Class'', [[CaptainCrash a teacher reports to Mr. Belding that she bumped into his car while trying to park at her own spot]]. Once she leaves, Mr. Belding demands to know who assigned her spot next to his. He's speaking to no one in particular, but Screech, upon hearing Mr. Belding's demand, whistles to himself while looking sheepishly away, which, due to his close proximity to Mr. Belding, serves only to tip himself off.

* In ''WesternAnimation/ChickenRun'', the chickens are caught in the middle of planning their escape. After a {{Beat}} or two of silence, every single chicken starts whistling (in ''unison'') and looking innocent, with their hands behind their backs. They get away with it because Mr. Tweedy [[WeirdnessCensor convinces himself that it's all in his head]]--chickens, after all, do not plot.
