I thought cartoon characters were actors in costumes. I was jealous of the actor playing Speedy Gonzales, because I figured it was a child like mne in the costume.

I very early found out that cartoons are in fact series of fast changing pictures, each next only a bit different from previous. It was well explained in some magazine for kids. So I knew how does every cartoon work, but I though it is executed just like the cartoon-book you can make yourself - they are holding out there in the studio thick stack of colored papers right in front of camera, and when the sheets are moving very fast, it is just being filmed and showed on TV. So many times I just wondered why all those cartoons on TV are so perfect quality since there should be visible trails of sheets moves etc. Then some day I found out they just record each one picture in the other film-tape tile, and this is it.

One of my favourite cartoons when I was little was called Willy Fogg. It was about a lion who had to travel around the wrold in 80 days. Story sound familiar?

This cartoon really confused me though because whenever I heard a reference to Phileas Fogg, I thought they were talking about the lion! For years I didn't realise that Phileas Fogg was a person.

Just a few weeks ago (I reasoned this out with said friend), my friend and I thought we were the Black Spy and the White Spy from MAD MAGAZINE. We would run around my basement making "helicopter" sounds and try to beat the shizzit out of each other using pillows.
We live in a retirement community, so imagine our neighbors thinking they were going senile seeing a couple of teenagers in fedoras and sunglasses running around the backyard.
Luckily, this is not believed anymore.

I was a huge fan of The Carebears and believed they were real. So much so that when I would cry, I honestly believed the Carebears would see on their care-o-meter that I was sad and would come cheer me up. Of course, this never happened and I was always so sad that they ignored me.

i used to think that cartoons like "Tom and Jerry" were performed by real actors in cat and mouse suits, using speicial effects and a special camera that made it look like a drawing. i was probably like 5 or 6 when my mom explained to me how it worked for real.

As a kid, I watched a lot of Tex Avery and Warner Brothers cartoons. And sometimes, in those cartoons, when one of the characters was in a sticky situation, they would pull out a pencil and draw things. Like, if they wanted to escape somewhere, they'd draw a door. I used to believe that you could do this in real life, so in the front hallway of my old house, I drew a picture of a window, thinking that if I ever wanted to run away from home, I could climb through it.

Also in the same cartoons, characters would draw a picture of themselves on a rock or something, and the villian would, thinking it was their victim, go run into the rock. My brother (who's two years younger) used to chase me around the house and try to bit me, so one day I drew a stick figure of myself on the side of a cabinet and tried to lead him to it, thinking he'd see it and believe it was me, and he'd run into the cabinet and leave me alone.

When I was little I thought the teenage mutant ninja turles were real. (this was back when they came out with the 1st cartoon show and the first movie and all) I thought this becuase I saw people in ninja turtle costumes on tv at certain events and because they starred in their own movie. I thought they were real superheros and celebrities. I got a 'autographed poster' by them and believed they really autographed it. I felt so special.

I used to believe that cartoons were colored in with markers and paint, and that movies were done with color-pencils ;D

When I was four or five I owned a Disney Land sing-a-long video which I would watch every single day and even though Disney is supposed to be the happiest place on earth I would cry my eyes out everytime I watched it. This was because I believed I was in love with Chip (from Chip and Dale) and was completely heartbroken because I couldn't go to Disney Land. So I had to settle with kissing my tv and pretending he was with me...(I later made it to Disney World and wasn't all that impressed with Chip)

When I Was Younger, My Friend Told Me That When It Was Neared Nighttime And The Sky Turned Pink, That Meant The Ninja Turtles Would Climb Out Of The Sewer.

So I Waited One Night. The Sky Turned Pink And Nothing Happened. I Thought Maybe They Only Came Out On The Weekdays And I Missed Them, Because I Went To Bed Too Early.

When I Was Younger, I Used To Believe That If I Ate Spinach Like Popeye I Would Sprout Muscles And Do The Whole Transition From Weak To Strong In 30 Seconds.
Of Course My Mother Took This As A Opportunity To Input That I Would Be Big And Strong If I Ate ALL My Veggies.

When I was really little I watched a lot of cartoons, and saw that they all had outlines. I would spend hours moving my hand around and looking for my own outline. I have friends that did the same.

When I was three or four, I believed I was going out with Simon from Alvin and the Chipmunks. I made pictures and everything. Now whenever my mom tells the stories I get disturbed at the thought of dating a humanoid shipmunk. o.O

I used to think that cartoons were people in costumes and I was upset to find out they were drawings because I thought it would be a cool job to walk around in a costume.

I flew on a plane to Las Vegas when I was 8. The clouds were so fluffy and white and close that I looked for the Care Bears and their rainbows.
