When I was a real little kid, there was this local independant station (now owned by the $#(&%( WB which is a DISGRACE!) that showed lots of old cartoons, one of which was Atom Ant (remember? He always went "Up and at'em, Atom Ant!"). Well, I figured he must be the secret identity of Adam Ant (the singer). Don't ask how I thought that would work. It really confused me when during an Atom Ant commercial break, one of those 80s Compilations would be advertisaed and "Goody Two Shoes" would be on the lost of songs. LOL

When I was little I used to believe that cartoons were actually people who were dressed up in costumes. I could not figure out how they could fall off cliffs and get hit in the head with frying pans and still be ok.

I grew up in Germany, so naturally I believed that Disney cartoons were made there, since they were all in German language. It never occurred to me that they might be translated for us. Strangely enough, I knew exactly what other cartoons came from Asia, Italy or Poland, but I was never suspicious of Disney, because even their songs were in German!

My Dad told me that my brother used to believe that we have our universe and that cartoon characters have their universe and that whenever cartoon characters get into some interesting events we wath them and if we get into any interesting events cartoon characters watch us.

When I was very little, I was outside laying in the grass with my younger sister, and my babysitter's daughter (who was older than us) pointed up at the sky to show us these beams of light magically darting around the sky (or, to us adults, those huge, powerful moving spotlights that people shine into the sky in front of big events and openings and such). She told us that they were the beams that the Care Bears shot out of there tummies - when they would yell out "Care Bears stare!" in the cartoon - that helped people. For a long time, whenever I saw them they would make me happy because I thought it meant that the Care Bears were helping somebody.

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 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!

Wordsworth! Wordsworth!
Following hard behind.
Ready for adventure, always there to lend a paw
...or hand!

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.
