I used to believe that Charlie and the Chocolate Factory was based on a true story, because there’s a real life candy company that was called “Willy Wonka” at the time.

There's a scene in the movie called The Incredibles, where the main character stamps the word "denied" on a piece of paper and an old lady says, "You're denying my claim?!".

Well, when I first saw the movie, I thought she was saying, "You're denying my *plane*?!" and wondered how on Earth someone could deny a plane.

In Peter Pan, a pirate says, "Here we are collecting barnacles on this miserable island!", the joke being that they were so inactive that barnacles were growing on them.

Well, when I first saw the movie, I didn't get the joke and I thought he meant collecting like you collect stamps or whatever. I thought he was implying that they were so bored that they could only do silly things like start a barnacle collection.

This is not me, but a friend of my father's. Apparently, Dad and his friend used to watch TV together as young boys, and Dad's friend didn't have a TV when he was little, so he didn't know how TV worked, so every time there was an ad break, he would burst into tears and rant about how the show had ended too early.

This is a belief I shared. There's a TV show called "Tots TV" and in the intro, a boy says, "I'm a tot" and then a girl says this French phrase. Well, not only me, but actually at least two people on the Internet thought she was saying, "And she's a tot" and apparently a lot of people still do think she's saying that because that wrong lyric pops up on Google Autocomplete!

The weird part is, she's the only female tot on the show, so if she was singing that, it would make no sense!

Not me, but a bunch of my friends! We were on a class trip to the aquarium, I was six (or maybe five and a half) and at least four but maybe even the whole class of my friends wanted to literally "find Nemo" as in the movie Finding Nemo, in the aquarium. They thought Nemo was in there, but I knew even then that he was a cartoon character and he was in the sea. At one point, a boy found a clownfish he thought was Nemo, but another boy said, "No, you fool! Marlin!" (Marlin is Nemo's dad).
