My favorite and most elaborate childhood belief went like this. I knew that cartoons were draw one frame at a time, like in a flipbook. I had also seen famous paintings like the Mona Lisa. I had noticed that those paintings were more realistic than cartoons, and that the figures did not have a clear definite outlines drawn around them, whereas in cartoons they did. So, my childhood belief was that regular movies too were painted one frame at a time, just like cartoons were, but without the cartoony-looking thick outline around the figures. I couldn't wait to grow up so that I could paint my own movies. I don't remember how old I was when I learned or figured out the truth.

When i was about 4 or 5 i got the Aladdin movie. I was so happy I watched it all day everyday. My uncle got tired of it and told me if i closed my eyes at the end of the movie, before the ginie jumped out and said "gotch ya" that he wouldn't say it. So for about a year, everytime I watched it I closed my eyes at the end.

When I was really young, like four or five years old I always wondered how cartoons were made. Then I came up with the notion that they were real people dressed up in funny costumes with intense bright lights on them... my brother said I used to eat paint chips so idk I'm blamin it on that.

When you were younger, there was never a "skin-colored" crayon, right? Well, I thought Matt Groening was having the same problem when he created The Simpsons. I contemplated finding one to send to him, but as long as Homer was yellow, someone famous had the same problem I did.

I didn't like being alone :P

I loved the movie Lion King. When the lions would kiss, they licked their heads. (I know it sounds weird) So I figured it was just a form of kissing. I was wrong. I figured it out when I licked my dad on the cheek. You can imagine the rest.

when i was young, i used to watch Popeye. There was one scene where popeye was beaten to a pulp by bruno or bluto or whatever his name was, and was in dire need of spinach.

So when there was this voice bubble above popeye saying "SOS", i immediately thought it was "spinach!...oh spinach!"...

it wasnt until many years later till my cousin corrected me.

When I was a kid I used to think Walt Disney was make-believe--like Santa or the Tooth Fairy. I guess Micky and his gang seemed to good to be true.

When I was about 3 - 3 and a half, I believed that Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy and Alice from Alice in Wonderland lived in the lady's house down the road. Whenever we visited I never saw them and was CONVINCED, WITHOUT a DOUBT, that she was hiding them behind a closed door that I was never allowed in.

I though the "D" written in "Walt Disney" on some videos was actually a backward "G".

When we were kids, we would ride in the car with my Mom, and one part of an expressway we traveled often went over a rock quarry.
For years, our Mom had us convinced this is where Fred Flintstone worked! We used to look all over that place for the dinosaurs LOL

I used to believe that cartoons lived inside the TV and you could tell them what to do by shouting into the back of the set, whenever popeye was in trouble i used to go mental for him to eat his spinach.

I used to believe thanks to Tom and Jerry that if you blow on your thumb hard enough then your hand would turn into a huge fist that would pummel anyone that made you mad. I still find my self blowing on my thumb when im in my room in a bad mood.
