When I was about 5 or 6, I saw a cartoon where the character used an umbrella as a parachute. My older brother said that it was true because it was on tv. He talked me into jumping off my grandma's bird aviary with the umbrella. I wrecked the umbrella and strained my ankle. My brother told me not to tell because I would get in trouble for hurting the umbrella.

As a kid my favorite show was Smurfs. I used to believe that I could actually see them if I looked in mushroom patches, as if they were real people. So when I saw wild mushrooms growing in the back yard, I would look down and call for the smurfs to come out. I remember many times running inside crying to my grandparents that the smurfs didn't like me.

I was a huge fan of The Carebears and believed they were real. So much so that when I would cry, I honestly believed the Carebears would see on their care-o-meter that I was sad and would come cheer me up. Of course, this never happened and I was always so sad that they ignored me.

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 young, when I watched an episode of Pink Panther, I saw him fall through the end of the up escalator into a room filled with toys, little cars like the shriners drive in parades, and other fun stuff. So I thought that at the end of the up escalators, If you could get sucked in, you would end up in that same room. So at the end of every escalator I went on, I would make sure to try to fall through the end.

When I was little I used to believe that I'd marry Charlie Brown when I grew up. I used to find him so adorable... Sadly, I grew up and he didn't.

I used to believe cartoon characters were real. I was excited to see Woodywood Pecker at universal studios in Hollywood. When I saw that it was just some dude in a costume, I became real depressed. I was about 6.

When I was in 6th grade I really liked the show Sailor Moon. However, I was for some reason afraid if people knowed I watched it they would think it was dumb and make fun of me. So I was really scared of people at school finding out and I even had a nightmare that it happened once! Seems kinda silly now...

Remember those old Warner brother cartoons with daffy duck,bugs and the gang. In those cartoons they had these little black bombs that walked around and where meant to represent smelly skunks. They had wave lines of funk excreating from them. I used to think thats what skunks really looked like that. I remember the first time someone pointed a skunk out to me in the wild. "Look there is a skunk" "Where? I don't see it!!"

I used to believe that if you blink at the same time as a cartoon character you'd turn into them. When I was three my favorite movie was "The Little Mermaid" and I wanted to turn into Ariel more than anything, so I'd watch it over and over so I'd blink at the same time as she would. No one caught on to this.

I have always loved pokemon all my life. However...at one point, it got a little too serious. When I was 6-right before 10, I believed that when I turned 10(in Pokemon, 10 is when you could start using/keeping pokemon), some kind of pokemon god would teleport me to the pokemon universe.

As a child, I went to a Montessori school, and I thought that the Flintstones were a "Montessori Family", not a "Modern Stone-Age Family" Whenever I see a field-trip from a Montessori school, I tell them this, and they have a good laugh about it.

I used to believe that cartoon characters were real creations acting in the TV set, and that non-cartoon images were created by the cartoon characters switching photographs really really fast (except for the Dukes of Hazard who used to hang out in the cramped TV because Minnie Mouse had a crush on them).
Uncanny how I got the idea of cell animation, but just got the application mixed up.

When I was in second grade, I saw a cartoon in which the characters dug for treasure in their yard and found some. I thought it was fairly common to find buried treasure. My parents came home to me with a shovel and a hole dug in the yard.
