Sounds to me like the 20,000+ volts that is comming from the flyback transformer is arcing at startup. This could be due to a bad flyback cable, a flyback transformer probelm, bad insulation, or dirt that is giving the electicity a path. It could even be the picture tube itself has a probelm. If it bothers you I would have a repair man have a look at it if its nothing but dirt or a soil mark casuing it to do it its easy fixed just neeeds cleaned ( the back side of the tube not the front) but I would not recommend you or anyone that does not know what they are doing do it cause it is 20,000+volts and it stays there after power is removed casue the picture tube acts like a huge battery een after its unplugged the picture tube can still give you a pretty big jolt. It takes specail tools to discharge it for removal and cleaning.
