I used to think it was the greatest coincidence in the world when they would have the Jetsons episode where they traveled back in time and met the Flintstones. "What are the odds of my two favorites cartoons families traveling through time to meet each other?" I thought. It was only later that I realized Hannah Babara was masterminding the whole thing behind the scenes.

I used to think Hannah Barbera was one woman...not two men. I didn't figure it out until I was about 15!

When I was younger I saw a cartoon about how bears have to store up food and water to hibernate for the winter. Since it was near winter time, I figured we had to also and I'd better get started! So I go into the bathroom and drink about 10 dixie cups of water. Then my little sister comes in and asks what I'm doing. I share my plan with her, and she joins in. After about 20 cups, my mom comes in and need I say I had a lot of explaining to do!

As a child, I went to a Montessori school, and I thought that the Flintstones were a "Montessori Family", not a "Modern Stone-Age Family" Whenever I see a field-trip from a Montessori school, I tell them this, and they have a good laugh about it.

I made up a theory when I was about 5, that every night when I was asleep, all the cartoon characters that I would watch on TV the next day would sneak into the house and climb into the back of the TV before I got up the next morning.
I didn't really believe it was true. I wonder why I made up this 'theory'?

Until quite recently I thought that all cartoons were made by drawing the same picture over and over and the pictures then being flicked in front of a camera, like the flickbooks you make in school. I imagined a poor, underpaid Korean man (for some reason exploited workers were Korean) standing in front a camera and flicking thousands and thousands of pictures.

I once was absolutely terrified of steam or any other white gas. This was because i'd seen a halloween special of the simpsons. At the end it showed the family getting turned inside out by a mysterious fog. They then started dancing around and singing.
I didn't want to join a freak show!

When I was really little I thought that if I dug deep enough, I could dig to China. I also thought that the Looney Toons lived in the center of the Earth, so they would be there to meet me halfway to China!

I believed that if I was in a car accident, I couldn't be harmed because cartoon characters would fly down out of the sky and save me! After all, they weren't confined to time and space were they?

I never understood the "D" in Disney, the one that's supposed to be like Walt Disney's signature. I thought it looked like a funky Q, or some wierd symbol. I only realized it was supposed to be a D about 8 months ago, me being 14.

I used to watch the Archie Cartoon Variety Hour or something like that and it showed cartoon Archie characters on stage in front of a live audience of real children.

I begged my mom to try to get me tickets to that show. She'd just smile, and never told me it was impossible.

when i was 4 of 5 i thought that the Simpsons were supost to be animals, not humans (yellow skin, four fingers...) so i got really confused when Marge described Homer as a "human being" in one episode.

when i was younger watching the Ren and Stimpy Show, i didn't think that Ren was a dog or Stimpy was a cat....i thought they were something else. even when Stimpy was in the cat litter i wasn't convinced

As a small child, I knew that there was a difference between cartoons and live action television, but I didn't know what it was. I was always troubled by the fact that no matter how fast I ran, I couldn't make my legs go in a full circle like they did when the characters ran on Scooby Doo. It never occurred to me that it couldn't be done.

When I was really young, I used to believe that cartoons were shot just like other television shows, just filmed with special cartoon cameras. The actors would wear costumes if they were playing the part of an animal.

Thanks to the Warner Bros cartoon "Pepe LePew", I thought skunks came from France. I got really confused when Mum told me they actually came from America-took ages to work out that cartoon characters spoke however the director wanted.

At around age 3 or 4, I thought cartoon characters were real actors but just in a cartoon world that was filmed and shown to us. I imagined bugs bunny and daffy duck sitting together at lunch eating their sandwiches and discussing their latest 'work'.

I used to believe that cartoons were made by putting all the drawings in a row, and then moving an ordinary video camera along the row very, very quickly. It was the only way I could see it working.

I used to think that cartoon characters were real and the tv station just turned up the color to make them look so bright.

once, when i was about 4, at a party my family had in the garden, a friend of my parents told me if i stare really hard at the tv aerial on the roof i could actually see all the Disney characters, ie Goofy and Donald Duck sitting up there. i honestly thought i could see them. it never ever occurred to me that they might not b there, and that by waving at them i would look deranged, so i carried on waving at television aerials right up until i was at least 12.
