In the Muppet babies show, I used to believe that the only reason I couldn't see the nanny's head was because my T.V. wasn't big enough.
i used to think when i watched scooby doo if i turned off the tv when the bad guy was chasing them they would get a break from running and be able to defeat him
my boyfriend used to think that Hanna and Barbera were two women that did all the cartoons
I used to believe that if i somehow figured out how to cut a hole in the TV while cartoons were on I would be able to reach my hand through (or maybe just step in if the hole was big enough) that I would turn into a cartoon.
I used to think that after it rained if I stepped on a puddle and made footprints scooby-doo would come and follow them as a "clue"
When I was little I thought people had black outlines just like cartoon characters. I would watch everyone and try to see their "black line" and sometimes I would swear up and down I actually saw one.
I used to think that cartoon characters were real and the tv station just turned up the color to make them look so bright.
I was really afraid of Felix the Cat, I even had to go to a psychologist cause I thought he would come out of the tv and kill me
I used to believe that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles really DID exist, and I'd spend hours squatting next to manhole covers and storm drains calling them "Michelangelo! Donatello!" and waiting for them to come out and play with me.
As much as I always loved "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" as a kid (and I still do!), the Whos used to make me mad. The narrator said that they dined on "rare Who roast beast," and since I had never heard "rare" used as a cooking term I always thought they were horrible people because they knew there weren't many beasts left, but ate them every year anyway.
In the cartoon Superted, Superted has to say the secret word to activate his powers. I thought that if you turned up the volume loud enough and listened really hard it was possible to hear the word and become Super as well.
When I was little, I used to think that cartoons were people that dressed up with black lines around them. How oblivious of me!
When I was little, like in about 2nd grade I think... my friend and I thought if we actually put Sugar, Spice, and everything nice into a pot and stirred it up, we could really make the Powerpuff Girls. So one night she was spending the night at my house and when my parents went to bed, we took a huge pot out of my cabinet and poured water into it. Then we poured about 5 cups of suger in, and then we took the spices out of the cabinet and shook them all in, and then we didn't really know what to put for "everything nice" so we drew nice things on paper and cut them out and dropped them in there. We mixed it up and my friend goes, "Aw man we're stupid. We forgot the chemical X!!" So.. we didn't really know how to get chemical X... so we put some dark blue food coloring in some water and labeled it "Chemical X." And we put in a drop. So then we mixed it and put it under my bed. The next day we were dissapointed that the powerpuff girls never showed up.Although my friend said it was because my window was open and they probably flew out. [[Also... I kinda forget about the "potion" under my bed. And a few weeks later my mom walked in... "What is that awful smell?!?"]]
I used to think that actors and actresses on television programmes where actually realistically drawn cartoon characters.
once, when i was about 4, at a party my family had in the garden, a friend of my parents told me if i stare really hard at the tv aerial on the roof i could actually see all the Disney characters, ie Goofy and Donald Duck sitting up there. i honestly thought i could see them. it never ever occurred to me that they might not b there, and that by waving at them i would look deranged, so i carried on waving at television aerials right up until i was at least 12.
when i was a kid i always wanted to see what nanny looked like on "muppet babies", so i would always stick my cheek to the screen and try to see her face.
When I was little, I absolutely loved Alladin the Disney movie (although the Saturday series were kinda cheesy)I had a crush on the character, and had the Aladin bed set, the mercandise, the partgy gear, and the beach mat. If If got picked on in school, I told everyone that Aladin was gonna kick their ass! Anyways, I wanted to meet Alladin in person, and when I found out I was going to Disney World, I knew what character I was going to see first. I did feel guilty because my motives were part selfish. I was gonna bribe Aladin into giving me Jafar's lamp so he can grant my every wish.
So when I was in Disney Land, my dad told me that Aladin was coming my way. As I ran up to him and Jasmin, I was very dissappointed. The Aladin I loved was short, his costume looked like it was from the dollar store compared to it's movie counterpart, and he was UGLY!! He even looked scary. This was not my dream man, and I cried at the top of my lungs right in front of everybody and called the confused Aladin a wanna-be phoney, and that he could keep his stupid lamp. I refused to leave Disney World until I saw the real Aladin. In fact, all of the characters in the park looked fake. My dad still laughs about it to this day.
Whenever I watched Tom & Jerry cartoons when I was a kid, I always thought it was amazing how they did all these strange things like squash themselves flat or stretch. One thing I always thought was funny was when a cartoon character was inflated like a balloon, and I used to think that this was possible in real life.
I always wanted to find out, so I would do things like inflate a balloon and then inhale it all to make my belly swell up, and I once tried to use a bicycle tyre pump to fill me with air. I even asked my cousin to take the tube of a snorkel and blow air into it into me to try and blow me up.
I eventually stopped doing this (thankfully) when I not only realised it was impossible, but it wasn't very healthy for me to do this sort of thing. Heh, I wish I hadn't realised it sooner though, to save myself the embarrasment.
My 7 year old cousin once asked me how the "actress" in Disney's The Little Mermaid could hold her breath for so long. I had to explain to her that she wasn't real she was just a series of drawings.
When I was about 3 - 3 and a half, I believed that Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy and Alice from Alice in Wonderland lived in the lady's house down the road. Whenever we visited I never saw them and was CONVINCED, WITHOUT a DOUBT, that she was hiding them behind a closed door that I was never allowed in.
