When I was a child I thought that cartoons were real but everyone was soaking wet. I was 8 or 9 before I was told otherwise.
I used to believe that I can change what happens in a cartoon. When I saw the same episode and something bad was going to happen, I would yell it at the character so they would avoid it. I was always dissapointed when they "didn't listen".
When we were little my younger brother was obsessed with the ninja turtles! And everytime we crossed a sewer grate or man hole he would kneel down and call "Ninja Turtles!!! Come out!!!!" It was the cutest thing ever that he truly beleived he lived down there!
When I was a child, I was insanely in love with a cartoon character. Up to the point of kissing and hugging the TV and worse when such and such was on. I also made lots of noises like "Come HERE!" and "SUCH AND SUCH PLEASE COME OUT!" and so on. I thought if I made a big enough noise the character would come out o' the screen and we would, um, marry. *whistle*. I had to go to a psycologist because of this. I still fantazise about such and such.
When I was in about 4th grade, the best show was Chalkzone, so every day at recess, my WHOLE class drew stuff on the chalk board to send into chalkzone, we even drew the hole and tried to get in!!
when i was small, i used to watch Popeye cartoons alot and i was convinced that eating a can of spinach would give me super-strength. i kept pestering my mom for canned spinach, until she finally gave in. YUCKO! i ate a few bites, went outside and attempted to lift our house off its foundation. no luck. i though maybe i hadn't eaten enough of the spinach, so i went back inside and forced down the entire contents of the can. when i failed to lift the house after that, i knew i'd been tricked. the whole Popeye story was a fake.
I used to think that all tv shows were animated. I thought that acted tv shows were drawn by really good animators. When i was watching friends i asked my mom if they got paid more than cartoon animators... she laughed soo hard!!!
When I was younger, I was obsessed with Darkwing Duck. I'd dress up in my best clothes I had, and make my mom drive me around my neighborhood looking for the wedding that Darkwing had arranged (for us).
Whenever we came near a realtor sign, I was convinced that it was actually a wedding sign for us. Sadly, this resulted in many upsetting drives around my neighborhood.
when I was young My dad used to work in a big building in Down town Phoenix. Now i used to be a HUGE fan of the ninja turtles! I used watch all their movies and cartoons..and they were always in big cities..(down town Phoenix..lol) Well whenever my mom would take me to visit my dad at work or on take ur daughter to work days..we would have to park in a parking garage and then walk a few blocks to his building. Of course in big cities as u walk down the street there are numerous Drains and sewers..Well there was this one big round sewer entrance that we would always pass on the way to his office and everytime we passed i insisted we stopped and looked for Michaelangelo! I kneeled down over the big round cap and yelled into the 2 little holes.."NINJA TURTLES ARE U IN THERE?!" My mom loves telling people that story! hehe.
I used to believe that all my favourite cartoon characters were in the attic of my house. They had a window so that they could see down into my room. The window was magic, so when i looked up, all i could see was a ceiling.
I used to talk to them all the time while looking up at the ceiling, but i was too scared to climb up there because my brother told me there were monsters guarding the doors in the attic, but thats another story.
When I was about 4 I used to believe that cartoon characters really existed in real life, and were alive and living somewhere. Like Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. And that they were about my height. I especially loved Woody Woodpecker. I made my mother write a letter for me in which I told him I loved him and asked him to marry me.
As a kid, I thought that the laughing during each episode of the Flintstones were actually people watching and laughing at the screen. I wondered where they sat while watching.
when i was 4 of 5 i thought that the Simpsons were supost to be animals, not humans (yellow skin, four fingers...) so i got really confused when Marge described Homer as a "human being" in one episode.
I used to believe that Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd were real. Anytime Elmer would try to kill Bugs, I would scream at the TV for him to stop because I loved Bugs. My mom laughed at me but I didn't understand why until much later.
I also thought that if I fell in a deep enough hole, I would meet up with ugs.
As a kid I really liked Bart Simpson, enough that I told my Mom I was going to marry him. She said "honey, you can't marry a cartoon, they aren't real" I didn't believe her and kept going with my belief that I would marry Bart Simpson someday.
I used to believe that cartoon characters on TV were real people dressed up in cartoon outfits, acting on a cartoon stage with cartoon props. Also everytime I turned on the TV, I thought that the actors would get the signal really really fast that I turned on my TV and was acting live from the studio. I couldn't figure out in my head how they could get into costume so fast.
I used to think that cartoons were people who painted themselves up and went on set. I remeber asking my mom how they get all the paint on them and such. Oh...good times.
I used to think that cartoons were real actors dressed up as these crazy characters. And because there were no shadows, I used to imagine that the set was painted just right so that shadows wouldn't appear on the the television screen.
You know in cartoons when someone is kissing someone a temperature thermometer would burst because the kiss was 'hot'. Well, when I was five I spotted a thermometer prompted on the wall in a grocery store and began to kiss my mommy's hand. I got angry that the temperature stayed the same.
I used to believe that Popeye the Sailor lived inside the power transformer up on the telephone pole. This idea arose from hearing the made-up lyrics that the neighborhood kids sang to the musical theme of Popeye cartoons: "I'm Popeye the sailor man, I live in a GARBAGE CAN, I eat all the worms and I spit out the germs..." Not knowing what the power transformer was, but simply that it resembled the shape of a garbage can, it was obvious to me that Popeye lived inside of it.
