As a kid I used to get really confused by advertisements that stated that a store was selling "Occasional furniture". I thought there must be some strange kind of vanishing chairs and tables that would only appear some times, sort of like the Cheshire cat... It was only later that someone told me that it was furniture for special occasions; to be used occasionally.

Where's my table gone?

When I was a little kid there was a soap opera called "Search For Tomorrow" that was on in the afternoons. I remember seeing a commercial for it and wondering how people were supposed to watch it *now* since it wouldn't be on until tomorrow.......

I used to think that in reruns the actors were actual performing again. It never occurred to me to think why they never aged or anything.

When I was little, I believed that T.V commercials were created to give the actors a break, then when the commercials were over, the actors just continued.

When I was young, my parents believed that if you turned the vacuum cleaner on when it was next to the TV, it "would suck the color out of the TV". I really think they believed this. Of course, being a kid, I never turned the vacuum on near the TV.

My brother told his fiance that we had a kerosene powered television that we used before we had electricity and continued to use it whenever our power went out. This was in 1976. She was around 23 years old and believed him until we told her he was teasing.

I used to believe that when someone died in a movie or tv show, they died in real life. Such an arbitrary belief, and i was equally shocked when i saw that person in another production.

I used to beleive the "Please Stand By..." TV's show when they can't find a signal actually meant for you to get up and go stand by them, so I did.

When I was really young, my family would watch world news tonight with Peter Jennings. There was always an image of the earth behind him, and that plus the fact that he always knew what was happening convinced me that he was in fact God.

I use to think that tv was real and during commercials they would stand very still so they'd be in the same spot. And all the actors had twins that would live on another channel. And I thought they were watching me on their tvs

When I was little an aunt told me I was so cute I should do tv commecials but I said no because I didn't want to be forced to go to the tv station to do the same 30 seconds of acting over and over and over again... (I thought tv commercials were live)

I am apparently the most gullible person on earth....I used to believe that on the show "Bewitched", Samantha and her 'cousin' Serena were 2 different people. It was years before I realized Serena was just Elizabeth Montgomery in a black wig.

When i first learned how to make flipbook animations in 1st grade, i figured that's how TV's work, there's a little wizard cramped up inside each set and at certain times he would flip certain flipbooks. I worried he was hungry and cramped.

When I was really small I had heard about a show called "Murder She Wrote." Not knowing what the word Murder meant at the time I thought it was someone's name and that the show was about some little girl who had just learned how to write.

When I was a kid, I used to believe that the President chose the weather forcast and called the poeple on TV to tell them his choice, if it was going to rain or not. That's how the weather girls knew what it was going to be like tomorrow.
That's what the President was for. I couldn't find any other reason for his existence. I guess I've very been very good at science... or politics ;)
