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.

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.

When I was in Kindergarten I was eating lunch and watching Rugrats and my friends and I said we were the voices of the Rugrats. The girl asked why we were sitting there now then. That stumped me for years until I finally learned that you don't record the voices live.

When I was a kid I believed in superheroes. Even though they were cartoons on tv, I thought the shows were based real amazing people and the cartoons , like superfriends, were reenactments of their exploits.

When i was younger (around 2-3), i thought cartoon characters were actually real and lived in Disney Land. Watching "Who Framed Roger Rabit?" only confirmed my belief!

After watching the Cramp Twins on TV I believed that swamp people were real. I thought that they lived in swamp houses and I also believed that there were really small people like Tony. I wonder why I haven't seen any yet...

When I was a kid, I loved the Flintstones, and I asked my mom if we could break the glass on the TV so they could come over and play with me.

My Husband and I both tried this as kids:

There was a cartoon/movie on years ago called "Dot and the Red Kangaroo". At one part, Dot shows the Red Kanagroo how to dig up water to survive or something (I forget the plot). She did this by on clean swipe on the soil with her claws and then the water appeared. Well, we both tried the same thing upon seeing the show. He gave up after a while, but I dug down at least two feet only to find NO WATER and that my parents house was built on a rubbish dump!
