I must have been about three at the time - I can remember quite clearly being very worried about Popeye. He was constantly being beaten to a pulp by Bluto and the spinach was always just almost out of his reach. I spent a lot of time fretting that one day he wouldn't be able to reach that spinach and Bluto would finally finish him off!
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!
i used to believe that cartoons was just someone holding a camera up to one of those flipr through book were you fllip through the pages really fast and it looks like the picture is moving
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.
Up until I was about 10, I believed that animators drew every single part of a cartoon over and over again, including the backgrounds. I was amazed at how they could draw the scenery exactly the same hundreds of times!
back when i watched carebears, i used to be scared to death of that one villian whose name escapes me, the ice guy. And I thought that if I couldn't see behind me, then he was most likely sneaking up on me and I felt much safer looking into a mirror because I could see he wasn't there.
When I was really little I watched a lot of cartoons, and saw that they all had outlines. I would spend hours moving my hand around and looking for my own outline. I have friends that did the same.
I used to believe that cartoons were colored in with markers and paint, and that movies were done with color-pencils ;D
i used to think that cartoons like "Tom and Jerry" were performed by real actors in cat and mouse suits, using speicial effects and a special camera that made it look like a drawing. i was probably like 5 or 6 when my mom explained to me how it worked for real.
When I was really young and I first saw The Simspons on TV, I didn't know that they were supposed to be humans. I thought they were these wierd-looking aliens with yellow skin. When I saw a character with dark skin that wasn't yellow, I thought, "Wow, he actually looks like a normal person. "
I used to think it was the greatest coincidence in the world when they would have the Jetsons episode where they traveled back in time and met the Flintstones. "What are the odds of my two favorites cartoons families traveling through time to meet each other?" I thought. It was only later that I realized Hannah Babara was masterminding the whole thing behind the scenes.
When I was in Kindergarten I was eating lunch and watching Rugrats and my friends and I said we were the voices of the Rugrats. The girl asked why we were sitting there now then. That stumped me for years until I finally learned that you don't record the voices live.
For some odd reason my brother thought he was the reincanation of Inuyasha, a cartoon character.
He would sometimes ask our Mom when he would inherit the sword "Tetusaiga" and where did Dad get fangs anyway?
If someone found broken glass on the schoolyard he would pick it up and say "Don't tell the teacher! It's the shards of the Shikon Jewel!" When they insisted it was only glass he went to tell the teacher that they were trying to steal the jewel shards.
He was a very mixed up kid.
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.
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.
when I was little I actually believed that cartoon characters lived on another planet. when I found out that it wasn't true, I cried my eyes out!!
my brother told me that cartoons were real people that got surgery to make their eyes big and round and then they were sent to live in the cartoon world for the rest of their lives.
I used to believe that the reason the Simpson characters were yellow was because they were made of macaroni and that's why Bart looks wierd. It took awhile but when I saw the Simpsons movie I realized they were people.
My 6 year old nephew used to believe that Tom Kenny had a magic voice because he could laugh very long without stopping in the Spongebob's longest laugh video. He then found out that they just played a recording of him laughing and repeated it several times.
When I was little, I thought cartoons were created by puppeteers who uses a camera and very bright looking puppets and moves them around to make their cartoons.
