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!!!'

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!!!

As a very small child I believed that cartoons were filmed with real actors and the picture was changed to make it look different from regular television. Every time a cartoon character had his head cut off or fell off a cliff I marveled at the ingenious special effects it must have taken to film the scene without harming the actor.

I used to think that cartoon characters were real "people," and I used to tell everyone that I was going to marry Mighty Mouse. My dad liked to tease me and insist that Pearl Pureheart was going to get him first.

When I was a child, while watching a Disney cartoon with little talking squirrels (or chipmunks, or whatever) for characters, I remember once asking my mother how they got the actors into such tiny little costumes.

Remember those old Warner brother cartoons with daffy duck,bugs and the gang. In those cartoons they had these little black bombs that walked around and where meant to represent smelly skunks. They had wave lines of funk excreating from them. I used to think thats what skunks really looked like that. I remember the first time someone pointed a skunk out to me in the wild. "Look there is a skunk" "Where? I don't see it!!"

I saw a cartoon on Sesame Street once where a kid didn't like his mommy, and went to a Mommy Store to trade her in and pick out a new mommy - they were posed throughout the store like fashion mannequins. Since it was Sesame Street, I believed it - and it scared the hell out of me.

I used to believe that cartoons were little kid actors. And so of course, I wanted to be a cartoon. I thought the costumes were so cool!

I loved the Carebears up until i watch one movie. All I remember was the bad guy was using the nightmares of children to steal the world's love or something equally cartoonish. But I remember that in the scary part of the movie everything turned black and white as the villian stole all the love. I got FREAKED! I thought it was really happening because the tv color was gone! I cried until my mom turned the station to show me that only that channel was black and white but it was too late. No more Carebears for me.

i used to believe that tv ratings worked with how many tv were tuned on to that specific show. so when the cancelation of the rosie o'donnell cartoon show came around i turned on all five of our tv sets and called my neighbor to do the same. sadly we didn't save the cartoon, but i did get yelled by mom.

when i was small, i used to watch Popeye cartoons alot and i was convinced that eating a can of spinach would give me super-strength. i kept pestering my mom for canned spinach, until she finally gave in. YUCKO! i ate a few bites, went outside and attempted to lift our house off its foundation. no luck. i though maybe i hadn't eaten enough of the spinach, so i went back inside and forced down the entire contents of the can. when i failed to lift the house after that, i knew i'd been tricked. the whole Popeye story was a fake.

I used to believe that spinach made me strong. Popeye was a popular cartoon back then. I ate spinach one night and then ran outside to where our little swingset had fallen over. I picked it up and righted it, and had proof that, yes, spinach works. But I still never ate much of it.
