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 think cartoons were painted with pencils..and movies were painted with pilots
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.
i used to believe you can play a flute n make a rope do tricks like in the cartoons.
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.
When I was a kid, long before computer animation (I'm 40, it's 2002), I thought that cartoons were people dressed up in costumes. Moving drawings? NO WAY!
when I was little I used to believe that cartoons were actually real, the movie, "Who framed roger rabbit," only confirmed my belief.
When I was little I thought people had black outlines just like cartoon characters. I would watch everyone and try to see their "black line" and sometimes I would swear up and down I actually saw one.
I used to think that, while cartoon characters were fictional, they were actors in costumes, and that cartoons were made in the same way live action movies are.
being australian, i could never work out why in all the cartoons and movies the ducks would fly south for the winter. it would only get colder.
I believed that cartoon characters were people dressed in costumes. But I couldent figure out why the color of the costumes were so different from real life.
The first time my father took me fishing in a boat, I panicked and cried when he started to put down the anchor. I was certain that dropping that heavy weight overboard was going to pull us down with it. He gave up trying to convince me and we drifted aimlessly with the wind instead. I blame the Roadrunner cartoons.
that my uncle was responsible for every cartoon played on TV
When Fraggle Rock was a popular cartoon, my parents got a big box with the word "Fragile" on it. Of course, I thought this was a big present for me with Fraggles inside.
I used to think that actors and actresses on television programmes where actually realistically drawn cartoon characters.
