As a kid, I used to watch Woody Woodpecker religiously. There was one episode where the vulture grabbed Woody, and rolled him up into a clay cylinder. Woody reappeared behind him. I was convinced that this actually happened, so I grabbed a worm from my backyard and rolled him up in some play-dough. He stayed there.

When I was about 5, I was playing with my cousin, who was around the same age. She was convinced that Mickey Mouse did not wear gloves; his hands were in fact puffy and white.

I was around 6 - 10 when my evil older sister and older twin cousins would pretend jack from Nightmare Before Christmas would call me on the phone asking for a date. It was my all time favourite movie but i would get so afraid that his girlfriend would kidnapp me in the night. They didn't give it up until i found my cousin hiding in the next room on the cordless phone. I also believed i was adopted and they were aliens with special powers.

Up until I was six, I was wondering why there wasn't any background music in real life (because there's background music in cartoons).

When I was a little girl my grandfather told me that Mickey Mouse was his cousin. I thought how lucky can one kid get!!! He still tries to get me to believe it.

When I was little, I swore that cartoons were in color even though our TV was black and white. But other non-cartoon shows were black and white. My folks told me it wasn't possible for just the cartoons to be in color but I thought they were nuts.

When we were little my younger brother was obsessed with the ninja turtles! And everytime we crossed a sewer grate or man hole he would kneel down and call "Ninja Turtles!!! Come out!!!!" It was the cutest thing ever that he truly beleived he lived down there!

For some odd reason my brother thought he was the reincanation of Inuyasha, a cartoon character.

He would sometimes ask our Mom when he would inherit the sword "Tetusaiga" and where did Dad get fangs anyway?

If someone found broken glass on the schoolyard he would pick it up and say "Don't tell the teacher! It's the shards of the Shikon Jewel!" When they insisted it was only glass he went to tell the teacher that they were trying to steal the jewel shards.

He was a very mixed up kid.

I though that the movie "Alice in Wonderland" was "Allison Wonderland". I though that Alice was a nickname for Allison.

I used to think that cartoons were real actors dressed up as these crazy characters. And because there were no shadows, I used to imagine that the set was painted just right so that shadows wouldn't appear on the the television screen.

I used to believe that the "invisible" or "clear" paint used in cartoons exsisted. (you know the paint the charaters would use to be invisible and then foil the plan on the vilian or hide)

Because my mum had told me that cartoons were 'moving drawings', i assumed that all things on the TV were drawn- so when i watched anything live action, i always thought 'wow, i wish i could draw like that!'

My 7 year old cousin once asked me how the "actress" in Disney's The Little Mermaid could hold her breath for so long. I had to explain to her that she wasn't real she was just a series of drawings.

it seemed that the only people i had crushes on when i was a little girl were cute cartoon superhero boys with superpowers. i'm still dissapointed that i can't get with the red headed boy that saved the day in the care bears movie...

Back when Marvel comics first started publishing Spiderman (a month or so after The Fantastic Four) I believed that the superheroes really lived in New York. I dreamed about travelling to New York to see Spidey and talk to Ben Grimm.

I used to believe that cartoon characters were real creations acting in the TV set, and that non-cartoon images were created by the cartoon characters switching photographs really really fast (except for the Dukes of Hazard who used to hang out in the cramped TV because Minnie Mouse had a crush on them).
Uncanny how I got the idea of cell animation, but just got the application mixed up.

I used to believe that at the end of the world, all of the cartoon characters and puppets would be on tv, but they would all be naked and have a big party because it was the end of the world. I have *no* idea why I thought this...

I used to believe that there was a cartoon world, and that everytime someone drew a picture it would be born in it's animated world. I still hope it's true, because that would be awesome.

When I was little I used to watch this cartoon movie called "The Hobbit" (you know lord of the rings) and I used to call Gollum "Green Guy" and I was so scared of him and thought if I wore a ring he would come after me and rip my finger off. Then when the 1st lord of the rings movie came out when I was about 15(A good 9 or 10 years after I saw the cartoon) and went to see it with my friend and I had no Idea that it was in anyway realted to that movie I used to watch. But when I heard Gollum say "My precious" I screamed out "OMG That's the green guy!!" And I was so thrilled that I remembered the movie. Now anyone who has seen the LOTR calls him green guy as well. lol

I was about 6 years old when I saw this Bugs Bunny war cartoon with Hitler in it. When he would talk, it would just be yelling with words thrown in like "Saurkraut, wienerschnitzel, etc." as well as made up words like "Gleek, whoopen, shanko etc." So I was under the impression that he was speaking actual German. I was very disappointed because I thought I knew a second language for the longest time when my mom finally explained to me that it wasn't German and that I'd get strep throat for constantly yelling like that.
