As a kid, i had NO IDEA how cartoons were made. I tried so hard to figure it out and eventually decided that it was all actors in costumes. But why were they outlined? Why was there (usually) no degrees of shade? I never came up with an explination for that. The kicker is that i remember watching an episode of Duck Tales and seeing a giant King Kong-ish ape. If these were actors in costume, how did they do that?! Naturally, I assumed it was about fifty actors in one giant gorilla suit and they all had to work together.
I thought Tom was the mouse and Jerry was the cat in Tom & Jerry
On Aladdin theres this bit where the guard runs his thumb across a sword.
So i took the biggest knife i could find and ran my thumb across it.
needless to say i bled a lot and cried.
I watched Charlie Brown a lot when I was younger, the one where he's in a spelling bee.
There's a bit where he exclaims "I'm a failure!!!"
I thought it was perfectly normal to say that so whenever i failed a spelling test or something i would say that to my teacher.
Eventually she called my mum in thinking i had self esteem issues.
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!
