I once thought that when you turned the TV off, you could turn it back on later and the same program would just continue where you left it.
I was really disappointed when I got home once and the cartoons weren't still there :(

When I was really young, I used to believe that cartoons were shot just like other television shows, just filmed with special cartoon cameras. The actors would wear costumes if they were playing the part of an animal.

I used to believe that those bugs from Bugs Life were real and that I could find them in a library for some reason.

When I was very little I was in love with the cartoon mouse "Dangermouse". I would put lipstick on and kiss the tv whenever the show was on. I thought he was real, and this would make him fall in love with me, come find me, and take me to his cartoon world where he lived. Eventually my parents made me stop (I think they were tired of cleaning lipstick off the TV all the time) and I got frustrated. How else was Dangermouse going to know about my feelings for him?!

when I was little I used to believe that cartoons were actually real, the movie, "Who framed roger rabbit," only confirmed my belief.

When I was young, I was really gullable (I still am!!!), and I was also a fan of the japanese cartoon Pokemon. There was a big tree in our schoolyard, and I believed that if I pulled on all of the branches at once a gate to the world of Pokemon would open. It never worked, because (or so I thought) not enough people would help me pull the branches. I only managed three at the same time. :(

When I was younger, I thought that cartoons were put on the TV for me only. I got the shock of my life when I walked past someone's window on the way home from school and saw that they were watching the same cartoons that I did!

As a kid, i had NO IDEA how cartoons were made. I tried so hard to figure it out and eventually decided that it was all actors in costumes. But why were they outlined? Why was there (usually) no degrees of shade? I never came up with an explination for that. The kicker is that i remember watching an episode of Duck Tales and seeing a giant King Kong-ish ape. If these were actors in costume, how did they do that?! Naturally, I assumed it was about fifty actors in one giant gorilla suit and they all had to work together.

When we were kids, we would ride in the car with my Mom, and one part of an expressway we traveled often went over a rock quarry.
For years, our Mom had us convinced this is where Fred Flintstone worked! We used to look all over that place for the dinosaurs LOL

I loved the movie Lion King. When the lions would kiss, they licked their heads. (I know it sounds weird) So I figured it was just a form of kissing. I was wrong. I figured it out when I licked my dad on the cheek. You can imagine the rest.

I used to think that the characters on cartoons are actually puppets. I wouldn't believe my uncle when he told me that they were drawn.

I used to think that if I don't leave the bathroom after brushing my teeth in 2 minutes, I would be locked in there forever. That explains my bad oral hygiene.

I believed that cartoon characters were people dressed in costumes. But I couldent figure out why the color of the costumes were so different from real life.

When I was little, every time I stepped over a storm drain or grate I would say, "Hello, Ninja Turtles!" I knew they down there watching out for me and protecting me from bad guys.

I saw a cartoon where there are these brigands who live in the desert and are a little worse for wear - missing teeth, eyes etc. and they sang a song that said if you don't go to school you will be like them. One line went something like this: "Bom bom bitty bitty bibitty boo we're what happens when you don't go to school." i didn't know what they might by that so i asked my dad. He told me that if you didn't go to school you had to be in a cartoon and do the same thing over and over again whenever somebody watched it. okaaaay.

When I was little, I used to believe that Jerry from Tom and Jerry was a girl because of his eyelashes, and that Jerry was a girl name. I realised what it was really like when I was 9 years...

When I was about 4 or 5, I had this crush on Max from The Goofy Movie.
I would draw pictures and watch the movie ALL the time.
I still wonder why I had a crush on a cartoon character.

I used to believe that cartoons were actually real, and that there was this fantastical city filled with cartoon characters. I would beg and plead for my parents to take me there because it was my dream to meet Scrooge McDuck. Mainly because I wanted to swim in his coin pool. Might I add, the movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit didn't help me to shake this belief either.

After watching several cartoons on TV, I thought you could laugh when someone has an accident.

One day in class, one of my classmates was sitting in his desk and it tipped over and he fell down. I broke out laughing, and I got in big trouble.

I used to watch the Archie Cartoon Variety Hour or something like that and it showed cartoon Archie characters on stage in front of a live audience of real children.

I begged my mom to try to get me tickets to that show. She'd just smile, and never told me it was impossible.
