When I saw a preview of, "The Lorax" I thought the Once-Ler's cigar was a pencil. Then when I saw the full movie, I realized I was wrong. So I used to pretend that pencils were cigars and had to discontinue this gesture because it wasn't a good example for little kids.

You know that cartoon Digimon? Well, I used to believe that me, my best friend, and a few other kids we knew were really Digi-Destined, and someday, we were going to go into the Digital World and have to save it from evil. We "knew" who our Digimon were going to be because it had been psychically suggested to us, and at one point we were even convinced that we were taken into the Digital World when we were younger but made to forget about it. It went so far as us to assume that we would occasionally get "possessed" by our adversary Digimon, MegaTyrannomon and occasionally DarkMistressmon. We were convinced it had to be us because we also happened to be sorcerers (obviously), because we knew "magical artifacts" (usually bizarre yardsale knickknacks) when we saw them.

We thankfully grew out of this, but I'm still not entirely certain about one of those "artifacts" that we called the Stone of Chaos. It really was creepy...

As a big fan of cartoons as a child, I thought that it was only logical that WE too had the black outlines that surrounded most cartoon characters. I was amazed when I couldn't see my outline, or anyone elses for that matter..so I just figured that we moved to fast to see them.

When I was younger, I thought that cartoons were put on the TV for me only. I got the shock of my life when I walked past someone's window on the way home from school and saw that they were watching the same cartoons that I did!

I saw something on a cartoon show when I was about 5, that a little kid put toilet paper on the floor claiming it's a river, and a chair over it claiming it's a bridge. He got someone to cross the bridge, but he fell in, so he was in real water and drowned. I really wanted to go swimming, but my parents said no, so I wasted a whole bunch of toilet paper putting it on the floor and putting a chair over it. I kept on stepping on the toilet paper, but it was still dry. Then I found out those cartoons were just making stuff up to amuse little kids.

when I was young My dad used to work in a big building in Down town Phoenix. Now i used to be a HUGE fan of the ninja turtles! I used watch all their movies and cartoons..and they were always in big cities..(down town Phoenix..lol) Well whenever my mom would take me to visit my dad at work or on take ur daughter to work days..we would have to park in a parking garage and then walk a few blocks to his building. Of course in big cities as u walk down the street there are numerous Drains and sewers..Well there was this one big round sewer entrance that we would always pass on the way to his office and everytime we passed i insisted we stopped and looked for Michaelangelo! I kneeled down over the big round cap and yelled into the 2 little holes.."NINJA TURTLES ARE U IN THERE?!" My mom loves telling people that story! hehe.

For some reason as a 2-5 year old girl i had a crush on Rocko from Rocko's Modern Life
O______________O;;
-cough-
yeah anyways.
I seriously believed he was real. So i asked my parents where he lived, and they'd be all like..
"Uhh...He doesn't.."
And i'd be all like, "Yes he does!! NOW TELL ME WHERE HE LIVES I WANT TO VISIT HIM. D:< "
So me and them (and my siblings) kept debating this until I finally gave up and quit talking about that. They won. T-T

And another time i tried to make a magic spell so that i could open a gate to the Cartoon world to come visit him.

I still remember using an empty tub of butter, sneaking out of my room at midnight, and mixing up a paste of toothpast, paper, and other junk.

I used to believe in Sailor Moon as well. D=
Like, they used to have these things at the end of the episode giving us kids advice, one of it was, "If you want to grow up and be like us, eat a balanced meal-Three times a day!" So i tried eating healthy so i could get their super powers.
xD

I used to think that animated movies were actual people dressed up in costumes that made them look animated. Completely illogical.

After that was cleared up for me, and I knew that the actors were only involved with the voices, I thought that whenever I watched the movie, they'd have to read the script again and it would somehow appear on my TV. Like they were always just ready and waiting in the studio. I never wondered what would happen if two people were watching the same movie but started at a different time.

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.
