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.
my boyfriend used to think that Hanna and Barbera were two women that did all the cartoons
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
when i was younger my mum used to shout at the t.v. when football came on so i started to shout when something bad was going to happen to someone on the cartoons...
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.
I used to beleive that the red and green buoys in the river was the little mermaid. The red one: her hair, and the green one her fin.
As much as I always loved "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" as a kid (and I still do!), the Whos used to make me mad. The narrator said that they dined on "rare Who roast beast," and since I had never heard "rare" used as a cooking term I always thought they were horrible people because they knew there weren't many beasts left, but ate them every year anyway.
back when i watched carebears, i used to be scared to death of that one villian whose name escapes me, the ice guy. And I thought that if I couldn't see behind me, then he was most likely sneaking up on me and I felt much safer looking into a mirror because I could see he wasn't there.
A friend of mine (at age 15, so I guess she should've known) used to believe that when you scream in a bottle and you close it, the moment you open the bottle, the bottle would scream. When we asked her how the hell she got to this thought, she simply said "Well I saw it in a cartoon, so I thought it could really happen". Well of course.
We still tease her about this one.
I used to believe that cartoon characters on TV were real people dressed up in cartoon outfits, acting on a cartoon stage with cartoon props. Also everytime I turned on the TV, I thought that the actors would get the signal really really fast that I turned on my TV and was acting live from the studio. I couldn't figure out in my head how they could get into costume so fast.
When "Rugrats" was new I used to believe the voice actresses, especially E.G. Daily for some reason, were actual babies. Imagine my surprise when I learned they were women in their 30's. Now I a big fan of Ms. Daily.
I used to believe (and still believe, don't laugh) that there was this place that unpopular cartoon characters and everything that ever was made (toys, books, movies, etc.) lived in. It was called forever. DO NOT GIGGLE!
