When I was little, I swore that cartoons were in color even though our TV was black and white. But other non-cartoon shows were black and white. My folks told me it wasn't possible for just the cartoons to be in color but I thought they were nuts.
I was around 6 - 10 when my evil older sister and older twin cousins would pretend jack from Nightmare Before Christmas would call me on the phone asking for a date. It was my all time favourite movie but i would get so afraid that his girlfriend would kidnapp me in the night. They didn't give it up until i found my cousin hiding in the next room on the cordless phone. I also believed i was adopted and they were aliens with special powers.
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!
i used think animated films were shot on special film to look like a cartoon. I never questioned why the animals talked and stuff though
You know how when you press on the outer corners of your eyes, little blue dots appear? I used to think that that meant that I was a Sailor Senshi.
I used to believe cartoons were real people and animals. They were just wet.
When I was little I was convinced there were two worlds- one of "regular" people, like me, and one of the cartoon people. I would watch cartoons on tv and think that the characters were alive and acting just as regular people do. I always wanted to know where they lived and how to gain access to this cartoon world.
I thought cartoon characters were actors in costumes. I was jealous of the actor playing Speedy Gonzales, because I figured it was a child like mne in the costume.
I used to believe that carebears are not just fantasy and we are able reach them by crossing over the rainbow.
evrynw and den i will pray for rain, insearch for the end of the rainbow. but the fact is, i never found it!
WHEN I WAS LITTLE I USED TO THINK THAT THE REASON YOU COULDN'T UNDERSTAND THE TEACHER ON CHARLIE BROWN WAS BECAUSE SHE WAS TALKING IN CURSIVE.
I used to believe that everything was animated, so when I saw an acting movie, I used to say wow! they are really good drawers!
When I was 4 or 5 I used to think the scooby doo monsters would jump out of the tv and chase me around my house!!!!!
When I was little I used to always want the bad guy in cartoons to win because I used to believe that they would be sad if they didnt win and I wanted everyone to be happy! xD For example, I wanted Tom to catch Jerry in the Tom and Jerry show!
A friend of mine (at age 15, so I guess she should've known) used to believe that when you scream in a bottle and you close it, the moment you open the bottle, the bottle would scream. When we asked her how the hell she got to this thought, she simply said "Well I saw it in a cartoon, so I thought it could really happen". Well of course.
We still tease her about this one.
when i was 6, i watched pinnoccio. i was fascinated with the idea of jimminy cricket as his conscience. i though that every time i was bad, a cricket would come up to me and tell me i had been naughty. i was terrified at this idea, so any time i did something wrong, i would hide out in the house, for fear that the crickets would come and get me.
Back when Marvel comics first started publishing Spiderman (a month or so after The Fantastic Four) I believed that the superheroes really lived in New York. I dreamed about travelling to New York to see Spidey and talk to Ben Grimm.
Because my mum had told me that cartoons were 'moving drawings', i assumed that all things on the TV were drawn- so when i watched anything live action, i always thought 'wow, i wish i could draw like that!'
When I was young I loved The Care bears, and I thought that they lived in the clouds, I had never flown before so I wasn’t sure if they did or not, one day my friend went on holiday and when she returned I asked her if she saw any Care bears and she said yes, and went into detail about who she saw in the clouds!
So when I flew for the first time despite being 15 and knowing better I was still looking out for the Care Bears in the clouds.
I used to believe that the Sailor Soldiers from Sailor Moon were actual sailors, navigating the galaxy in giant ships.
When Fraggle Rock was a popular cartoon, my parents got a big box with the word "Fragile" on it. Of course, I thought this was a big present for me with Fraggles inside.
