tvShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
I used to believe that when I turned off the TV, whatever I was watching would "pause". When I came back and turned it on, I was disappointed to see it had kept going and was over.
I thought that little people crawled through the wires in the back of the TV...so that's how we could see them on TV.
When i was about 4 or 5..i tried to look under dresses in the television screen
I sincerely believed that a TV program would stop at the exact moment that you turned the TV off. I would turn the TV back on, and be totally confused as to why the storyline, or even worse, the entire program, had changed.
I used to think that characters on television were people in a box and when you turned on the TV they would run up the cable cord and into the TV.
I used to believe that the persons appearing on tv just hid behind the tv set.So I would go behind it to to chek whether they were there or not.
I used to believe that there were people in the TV that watched the shows and laughed at the funny parts, and thats why on some shows you can hear other people laughing (which i now know is the studio audience)
I believed that everyone in the world could watch me on t.v. if I did commercials in the mirror. I used to spend hours doing "breck girl" commercials from the age of 5 to about 10 in my bedroom mirror. My brothers still call me the breck girl and my signature move at 38 is still the "hair toss"...
When I was little I used to believe that actors and actresses lived inside the VHS tape and I would ask them repeatedly whether they were ready for me to start the tape or not. I assumed that they just acted out the movie whenever I wanted them to.
I used to believe that normal people would go in front of a special machine to make them tiny, then they would jump in our tvs to be on the tv shows. i always looked behind the tv to see where they got in and if i'd be able to get in there.
i used to believe that I'm watching the movie while it's filmed and that during comercial break actors repeat their lines
When I was about 4 I believed that when you watched a show or movie that had a laugh track. It was people at home laughing and was being broadcast all over the world. So I started talking very loudly into my VCR saying hi to my friends. Sadly when I played the tape over again wondering why my friends didnt say anything, I noticed that it was the exact same people laughing.
I believed that a television show would wait for me if I was delayed in getting to the room to watch it.
When was about 5-7 I thought when we turned off the TV, the people stayed there, ya know like frozen there, until we turned the TV back on.
I used to think "To Be Announced" was a news program.
When I was about 3 or so, I couldn't understand that TV shows and the news and stuff are still on even if you're not there to watch them. I thought that if I turned off thee TV and went to play outside, whatever I was watching would just start again when I came back.
When I was a preschooler, I had to go with my mother to the grocery store on day. I didn't want to leave because I was watching cartoons on t.v. I figured out that if I turned the t.v. off, I would be able to watch the rest of the cartoon when I came home and turned the t.v. back on. When I got back home, I told my mother that I couldn't find the channel that my cartoon was supposed to be on. When she broke the news about the situation, I was devastated.
when i was 5 or 6 my cousin told me that if you got to close to the TV when you where watching it vampires would come out of it and they would try to get you but noone could help you. I didn't watch TV for about 4 weeks after that.
I used to believe, when I was little, that if i sat close enough to the TV (like with my face right on the tv) and I looked up, down or on the sides I'd be able to see more.
Whenever they would say "This show is brought to you by..." Since I never actually saw the words on the screen, and they just said them, I didn't realize that "brought to you" was 3 separate words. I thought it was one long fancy word that I wouldn't understand until I was older. It sounded like they were saying "bra-tah-yoo" or something. Heheh.
Finally one day they actually put the words on the screen, and I went "Ohhhh!"
