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.
My dad told me that often on his subway trip to work in NYC, he would see Mr. Magoo on the same train. He really meant Jim Bakkus, who did the voice of Mr. Magoo. But I always pictured the cartoon character sitting amongst real people on the train.
When I was about 5 years old my favourite tv show was the Flintstones. I really wanted to be able to play with Pebbles and Bambam - so much in fact my Mum found me one day unscrewing the back of the television set so I could climb in to be with them.
When I was little, I thought cartoons were created by puppeteers who uses a camera and very bright looking puppets and moves them around to make their cartoons.
As a kid, I thought that the laughing during each episode of the Flintstones were actually people watching and laughing at the screen. I wondered where they sat while watching.
I used to believe that those cartoon 'specials' (the ones where they take loads of old classic cartoons and splice them together with a couple of badly-animated new scenes to link the totally unrelated stories) were in fact brand-new, hour long cartoons I'd never seen before.
When I was little, I was so frigtened of the land of the giants. I thought there was actual person who were that big and would take me away. I also remember being scared of the incrediable hulk (altho Im a huge fan now) and everytime my mom got mad, I would run out the room screaming 'HULLLLLLKKK!!!'
When I was younger, I was fastinated by how when goofy got idea, he would get a light blub.
I have memories of my trying to think of ieas infront of the mirror so I could see this lightbulb.
I used to think that all tv shows were animated. I thought that acted tv shows were drawn by really good animators. When i was watching friends i asked my mom if they got paid more than cartoon animators... she laughed soo hard!!!
