I used to believe that Mowgli from Disney's The Jungle Book was a girl, because he had long hair just like my sister.
I used to believe that Popeye the Sailor lived inside the power transformer up on the telephone pole. This idea arose from hearing the made-up lyrics that the neighborhood kids sang to the musical theme of Popeye cartoons: "I'm Popeye the sailor man, I live in a GARBAGE CAN, I eat all the worms and I spit out the germs..." Not knowing what the power transformer was, but simply that it resembled the shape of a garbage can, it was obvious to me that Popeye lived inside of it.
I believe I can fly when I watched cartoons at my
The intro-song to the kids show Kim Possible goes: 'Call me, beep me if ya wanna reach me' and so on, and I believed she would actually come if I called her, so I went to my balcony one day and shouted "KIM POSSIBLE!".
My 6 year old nephew used to believe that Tom Kenny had a magic voice because he could laugh very long without stopping in the Spongebob's longest laugh video. He then found out that they just played a recording of him laughing and repeated it several times.
I used to think that the characters in the simpsons were yellow because the creator didn't have any skin coloured markers when the first episodes were made. Maybe it's true!
I used to believe that my parents were undercover superheroes at night!
I used to believe that you could become a real Pokemon trainer on your 10th birthday. Being the Pokemon lover I was, I got really excited for my 10th birthday to get my own starter pokemon and pokedex! When i actually turned 10, I got disappointed because I didn't become a real pokemon trainer but I did get a toy pokedex and pokemon figures. It wasn't the same, though.
My Sister Zoe Saw The Lion King.
She Said That At Night The Lion Come Out And Sing.
I Told Her It was A Cartoon, But She Still Think That a was Real.
My dad used to watch "Davey and Goliath" and he had NO IDEA it was a religious show. He just thought it was just a Sunday cartoon.
After My Sister Watched An Episode For Kate And Min Min She Believed That If She Said Her Teddy Bear's Name It Would Come To Life. I Told Her A Just A Cartoon
I used to be skeptical about non-disney fairytale characters, since their name was the same but their appearance was diferent. I didn't know copyrights existed and I wanted all fairytale characters to be homogeneous to Disney's version xD
You know how in kid's magazines they have sections, where they show things kids sent into them, like stories and drawings. I drew a picture, stuck it in the magazine and waited to see if it would be published the next time I opened it.
When I was 6 or 7, I grew up in that generation of Dragonball Z and Sailor Moon, so not only did I believe that if you learn martial arts you can utilize flying, and energy blasts, that if you believe hard enough and "train" that when you turn 14, you can become a sailor scout....Also only in japan did Pokémon and Digimon exist (they didn't coexist in the same area however), and you could only receive a partner if you lived there. So my pikachu plush was the closest I got to having a "real" Pokémon. I watched too much TV as a kid lol
I used to believe that the reason the Simpson characters were yellow was because they were made of macaroni and that's why Bart looks wierd. It took awhile but when I saw the Simpsons movie I realized they were people.
When I was 4 my mom told me that Mickey Mouse lived at the top of the water tower in our city.So every time we'd pass by it I yelled "I think I see Mickey Mouse!" and I literally imagined Mickey Mouse was up there waiting to be found by me.
my brother told me that cartoons were real people that got surgery to make their eyes big and round and then they were sent to live in the cartoon world for the rest of their lives.
Years ago, my brother (5 years old at the time) kicked a mushroom that had been growing in our yard. I told him that he just murdered a bunch of Smurfs. He went crying to my parents about it. We grew up with Smurfs on the Saturday morning cartoons. I always think of the Smurfs when I see a mushroom in my yard.
I used to think that cartoons took place all in the same day, that's why the characters never changed their clothes.
I used to believe that the Sailor Soldiers from Sailor Moon were actual sailors, navigating the galaxy in giant ships.
