My Dad had told me when I was around 5 years old that he made a potion that could turn me into a Ninja Turtle. I ran around and told all the neighborhood kids that I had this potion and was so cool becasue of it. Needless to say, I never turned into a Ninja Turtle.
When I was little, I watched Ninja Turtles all the time, and whenever I would pass by a sewer I would have to stick my fingers in the holes, and I swear that once one of the turtles touched me. Scares me now to think of what I really felt. Ugggh.
I used to believe Jamie and the Magic Torch was real. I genuinely thought that if I shone a torch on the floor, it would open up a portal to a helter skelter which would take me to the bottom of a tree trunk, onto a trampoline into a dimension called Cuckoo Land. However, despite routinely embarking on this nightly course of under-the-bed torch action, I didn't actually make it to Cuckoo Land. Yet, I believed this was because I did not have a dog called Wordsworth, not even considering such a place did not exist. Perish the thought!
Following hard behind.
Ready for adventure, always there to lend a paw
I used to love dragon ball z and all that manga stuff, i really thought that one day i would turn super and be able to fly and shoot power beams and id save the world. I also used to believe taht id one day be transported to a strange digimon world
I used to believe that cartoon characters hung out with other cartoon characters when not working, that Bugs Bunny would sometimes have Mickey Mouse and Tom and Jerry over for dinner. I never saw any cartoon characters roaming around because they all lived in California.
The Animaniacs were fictionalizations of the Warner brothers and the "Warner Sister" it took me years to realize this was not the case.
I used to think the "D" in the Disney logo was actually a "G" for years and I never understood why, until my mom showed me I was looking at it wrong and it actually was a "D"! I still think it's easy to mistake for a "G".
I used to think everybody had outlines like cartoons or people in colouring books. I believed that until we played eye spy with my little eye in Kindergatren. I said "I spy with my little eye ... something black." I thought the outlines were black. Every 5 year old in the room thought I was an idiot.
When I watched the Veggie Tales theme song, I always would get mad at the writers because sweet and sour isn't a vegetable (e.g: Cauliflower, Sweet and Sour, Half an hour, Veggie Tales!) I thought they could get sued for teaching kids incorrect information.
When I saw a preview of, "The Lorax" I thought the Once-Ler's cigar was a pencil. Then when I saw the full movie, I realized I was wrong. So I used to pretend that pencils were cigars and had to discontinue this gesture because it wasn't a good example for little kids.
I used to believe in SUPERHEROES (and I kinda still do)...
You know that cartoon Digimon? Well, I used to believe that me, my best friend, and a few other kids we knew were really Digi-Destined, and someday, we were going to go into the Digital World and have to save it from evil. We "knew" who our Digimon were going to be because it had been psychically suggested to us, and at one point we were even convinced that we were taken into the Digital World when we were younger but made to forget about it. It went so far as us to assume that we would occasionally get "possessed" by our adversary Digimon, MegaTyrannomon and occasionally DarkMistressmon. We were convinced it had to be us because we also happened to be sorcerers (obviously), because we knew "magical artifacts" (usually bizarre yardsale knickknacks) when we saw them.
We thankfully grew out of this, but I'm still not entirely certain about one of those "artifacts" that we called the Stone of Chaos. It really was creepy...
As a big fan of cartoons as a child, I thought that it was only logical that WE too had the black outlines that surrounded most cartoon characters. I was amazed when I couldn't see my outline, or anyone elses for that matter..so I just figured that we moved to fast to see them.
When I was younger, I thought that cartoons were put on the TV for me only. I got the shock of my life when I walked past someone's window on the way home from school and saw that they were watching the same cartoons that I did!
I saw something on a cartoon show when I was about 5, that a little kid put toilet paper on the floor claiming it's a river, and a chair over it claiming it's a bridge. He got someone to cross the bridge, but he fell in, so he was in real water and drowned. I really wanted to go swimming, but my parents said no, so I wasted a whole bunch of toilet paper putting it on the floor and putting a chair over it. I kept on stepping on the toilet paper, but it was still dry. Then I found out those cartoons were just making stuff up to amuse little kids.
when i was little i was very shocked to find out that cartoons were played by real people...i was so sure they had their very own voice!
When watched the loin king on video, i used to believe that-if I broke the screen-imba & Nala would actually come out & play with me!!
when I was young My dad used to work in a big building in Down town Phoenix. Now i used to be a HUGE fan of the ninja turtles! I used watch all their movies and cartoons..and they were always in big cities..(down town Phoenix..lol) Well whenever my mom would take me to visit my dad at work or on take ur daughter to work days..we would have to park in a parking garage and then walk a few blocks to his building. Of course in big cities as u walk down the street there are numerous Drains and sewers..Well there was this one big round sewer entrance that we would always pass on the way to his office and everytime we passed i insisted we stopped and looked for Michaelangelo! I kneeled down over the big round cap and yelled into the 2 little holes.."NINJA TURTLES ARE U IN THERE?!" My mom loves telling people that story! hehe.
For some reason as a 2-5 year old girl i had a crush on Rocko from Rocko's Modern Life
I seriously believed he was real. So i asked my parents where he lived, and they'd be all like..
And i'd be all like, "Yes he does!! NOW TELL ME WHERE HE LIVES I WANT TO VISIT HIM. D:< "
So me and them (and my siblings) kept debating this until I finally gave up and quit talking about that. They won. T-T
And another time i tried to make a magic spell so that i could open a gate to the Cartoon world to come visit him.
I still remember using an empty tub of butter, sneaking out of my room at midnight, and mixing up a paste of toothpast, paper, and other junk.
I used to believe in Sailor Moon as well. D=
Like, they used to have these things at the end of the episode giving us kids advice, one of it was, "If you want to grow up and be like us, eat a balanced meal-Three times a day!" So i tried eating healthy so i could get their super powers.
I used to think that animated movies were actual people dressed up in costumes that made them look animated. Completely illogical.
After that was cleared up for me, and I knew that the actors were only involved with the voices, I thought that whenever I watched the movie, they'd have to read the script again and it would somehow appear on my TV. Like they were always just ready and waiting in the studio. I never wondered what would happen if two people were watching the same movie but started at a different time.
