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.

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.

From about the time I was three years old till I started going to school I watched a really old cartoon called 'Roger Ramjet' who was an American superhero. At the end of the show they play the theme song which is about Roger Ramjet saving the nation from the bad guys and for that time I would stand in front of the TV saluting to the American flag. For the first few years of my life I believed I lived in the USA

As a kid my favorite show was Smurfs. I used to believe that I could actually see them if I looked in mushroom patches, as if they were real people. So when I saw wild mushrooms growing in the back yard, I would look down and call for the smurfs to come out. I remember many times running inside crying to my grandparents that the smurfs didn't like me.

when I was little I wasn't allowed to watch the simpsons, but my brothers were and when they would talk about the show and say "Bart," I would yell at them claiming that it was Bark not Bart, Bart wasn't a real word.

When I was little, I would watch the Smurfs. I got my mum to watch with me once, and afterwards she said in shock, "They're Communists!"I didn't know what she meant, but since the word sounded fancy I remembered it. And when we started doing Communism and World War Two in History class years later, my teacher began talking about how the Russians became Communists. I put my hand up and said, "But I thought the Smurfs were American!" Nobody had any idea what I meant...
