I argued with my mother once that the Mighty Mouse cartoon was indeed in color, and I was positive! She said it couldn't be color on a Black & white TV. Who do you think was right?

When I was young, I was really gullable (I still am!!!), and I was also a fan of the japanese cartoon Pokemon. There was a big tree in our schoolyard, and I believed that if I pulled on all of the branches at once a gate to the world of Pokemon would open. It never worked, because (or so I thought) not enough people would help me pull the branches. I only managed three at the same time. :(

I was convinced that He-Man would hold his sword aloft and shout 'I ... AM ... A FLOWER!'

It had to be explained to me that he was saying 'I have the power!' No I don't have a hearing problem.

I must have been about three at the time - I can remember quite clearly being very worried about Popeye. He was constantly being beaten to a pulp by Bluto and the spinach was always just almost out of his reach. I spent a lot of time fretting that one day he wouldn't be able to reach that spinach and Bluto would finally finish him off!

My seven year old brother still thinks to this day that the cartoon "Rocko's Modern Life" is called "Rocko's Brother Died"

Whenever I watched Tom & Jerry cartoons when I was a kid, I always thought it was amazing how they did all these strange things like squash themselves flat or stretch. One thing I always thought was funny was when a cartoon character was inflated like a balloon, and I used to think that this was possible in real life.

I always wanted to find out, so I would do things like inflate a balloon and then inhale it all to make my belly swell up, and I once tried to use a bicycle tyre pump to fill me with air. I even asked my cousin to take the tube of a snorkel and blow air into it into me to try and blow me up.

I eventually stopped doing this (thankfully) when I not only realised it was impossible, but it wasn't very healthy for me to do this sort of thing. Heh, I wish I hadn't realised it sooner though, to save myself the embarrasment.

when i was 6, i watched pinnoccio. i was fascinated with the idea of jimminy cricket as his conscience. i though that every time i was bad, a cricket would come up to me and tell me i had been naughty. i was terrified at this idea, so any time i did something wrong, i would hide out in the house, for fear that the crickets would come and get me.

One of my best friends always believed that the reason Dopey didn't talk was because he was bald. That's what here Mom told her. When we met, and I told her that according to Happy," I don't know, I guess he never tried!" She was devastated. She actually cried!

When I was younger, I was obsessed with Darkwing Duck. I'd dress up in my best clothes I had, and make my mom drive me around my neighborhood looking for the wedding that Darkwing had arranged (for us).

Whenever we came near a realtor sign, I was convinced that it was actually a wedding sign for us. Sadly, this resulted in many upsetting drives around my neighborhood.

I used to think that cartoons were people who painted themselves up and went on set. I remeber asking my mom how they get all the paint on them and such. Oh...good times.

I used to believe that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles really DID exist, and I'd spend hours squatting next to manhole covers and storm drains calling them "Michelangelo! Donatello!" and waiting for them to come out and play with me.

When I was little, I absolutely loved Alladin the Disney movie (although the Saturday series were kinda cheesy)I had a crush on the character, and had the Aladin bed set, the mercandise, the partgy gear, and the beach mat. If If got picked on in school, I told everyone that Aladin was gonna kick their ass! Anyways, I wanted to meet Alladin in person, and when I found out I was going to Disney World, I knew what character I was going to see first. I did feel guilty because my motives were part selfish. I was gonna bribe Aladin into giving me Jafar's lamp so he can grant my every wish.

So when I was in Disney Land, my dad told me that Aladin was coming my way. As I ran up to him and Jasmin, I was very dissappointed. The Aladin I loved was short, his costume looked like it was from the dollar store compared to it's movie counterpart, and he was UGLY!! He even looked scary. This was not my dream man, and I cried at the top of my lungs right in front of everybody and called the confused Aladin a wanna-be phoney, and that he could keep his stupid lamp. I refused to leave Disney World until I saw the real Aladin. In fact, all of the characters in the park looked fake. My dad still laughs about it to this day.

We had a REALLY old TV when I was little and the color was always distorted. While watching the Smurf's at a friend's house one morning I asked her why they were blue? On my TV they had always been GREEN and I just assumed green was their true color!

I used to believe that Hanna Barbara was a lady (instead the last names of the creators). I was like, she is really smart and rich!!

I used to believe that people had outlines like cartoons. I got this idea from looking at Snoopy. Sometimes I would hold my hands up in front of a wall, concentrate hard, and try to see my "black lines." (And I was so pleased when I was finally successful.)

When I was little, I remember watching My Little Pony, and seeing "to be continued" on the bottom of the screen at the end of the episode. For the longest time, I really thought that "continued" was some sort of adjective for "evil" or something. Like "to be bad". I thought they were saying something about the bad guys!
