When I was really little, I misheard "brought to you by" as "broctayu by", thinking broctayu was all one word. I thought it meant something like "affiliated with", as in "these products we're showing commercials for products we liked enough to use on the show". I wasn't entirely wrong, but I had a very naive and simplistic view of it.

I thought that the fingers SpongeBob held up in “Naughty Nautical Neighbors” represented Sandy, Mr. Krabs, and either Gary or Pearl. Now I realize that Gary was in the room hiding, meaning he didn’t want to be around SpongeBob either, and the episode was actually set before “Help Wanted”; so he hadn’t met Krabs, Sandy, or Pearl yet.

I thought the Simpsons weren't humans, but birds. This was because of their yellow skin, and Homer's beard looked like a beak.

I used to believe that people are living inside tv.If the tv is switched on they will see us and they dance and entertain us.I thought they are not not normal people like us.The family or couple appearing in movie / drama is real.If they die in the sitcom they die in real life.Now if I think of it ,it's totally absurd and funny.

I just recently remembered that when I was little and saw Disney's Peter Pan, the "Indian Chief" was so cartoony and caricatured and had such a growly voice that I thought he was some kind of minotaur-like monster and his war bonnet was actually a crest of feathers and horns growing out of his head.

When I first read about the Cannes Film Festival, I thought "Cannes" was the name of a PERSON, rather than a city. I figured he was some famous director or something.

I didn't know how old certain movies actually were. I was quite surprised to find out in 2000 that Fantasia dated all the way back to 1940, since the live action footage of the orchestra was in color, and I thought that color film hadn't been invented until the 1960s.
