When I Was Younger, My Friend Told Me That When It Was Neared Nighttime And The Sky Turned Pink, That Meant The Ninja Turtles Would Climb Out Of The Sewer.

So I Waited One Night. The Sky Turned Pink And Nothing Happened. I Thought Maybe They Only Came Out On The Weekdays And I Missed Them, Because I Went To Bed Too Early.

We had a REALLY old TV when I was little and the color was always distorted. While watching the Smurf's at a friend's house one morning I asked her why they were blue? On my TV they had always been GREEN and I just assumed green was their true color!

Probably until I was about 7 or 8 I thought CareBears really lived in the clouds. My dad would fly 2-3 times a year for his job and every time he was leaving I would ask him to take a picture of the CareBears from the window. Then when he got there he would call and tell me he saw Care-a-lot (where they live). I would get so excited and couldn't wait til he brought home pictures...but there never were any. I never understood why he couldn't just take the picture!

I used to believe that when I was in kindergarten, cartoon characters were real. I wanted
to live with them and some characters have power that was awesome.

I thought Spongebob Squarepants was a piece of Swiss cheese.

Up until I was 7 or so, I didn't know how cartoons worked, so I figured cartoon characters were really actors in suits.

I thought cartoons were for kids and "real-life programs" for adults.

I never understood the "D" in Disney, the one that's supposed to be like Walt Disney's signature. I thought it looked like a funky Q, or some wierd symbol. I only realized it was supposed to be a D about 8 months ago, me being 14.

I was about 6 years old when I saw this Bugs Bunny war cartoon with Hitler in it. When he would talk, it would just be yelling with words thrown in like "Saurkraut, wienerschnitzel, etc." as well as made up words like "Gleek, whoopen, shanko etc." So I was under the impression that he was speaking actual German. I was very disappointed because I thought I knew a second language for the longest time when my mom finally explained to me that it wasn't German and that I'd get strep throat for constantly yelling like that.

I used to believe that there was a cartoon world, and that everytime someone drew a picture it would be born in it's animated world. I still hope it's true, because that would be awesome.

I though that the movie "Alice in Wonderland" was "Allison Wonderland". I though that Alice was a nickname for Allison.

I used to think that animated movies were actual people dressed up in costumes that made them look animated. Completely illogical.

After that was cleared up for me, and I knew that the actors were only involved with the voices, I thought that whenever I watched the movie, they'd have to read the script again and it would somehow appear on my TV. Like they were always just ready and waiting in the studio. I never wondered what would happen if two people were watching the same movie but started at a different time.

When I was quite small (3 - 5) the Bugs Bunny show came on every Saturday morning, with all the Looney tunes characters singing on stage "This is it, hit the lights, this is it, the night of nights. . . " etc....then they come to a part where the music stops and with a drum roll, they introduce "and now, that Oscar winning rabbit, BUGS BUNNY!"

Well, I sure as heck did not know what an Oscar was, but I DID know what a hot dog was and knew the Oscar Meyer Weiner song. I always thought they were saying "That Oscar WEENIE rabbit". I could never figure out why it was so great to be a weenie.

I used to think that cartoon characters were just people wearing costumes. So one day I asked my older sister what she would do if she met one of the characters from a show we watched. She just laughed at me, and explained that they were drawings.

I used to believe that cartoons were actual real life people, places, and things, except, covered in tin foil and painted to render them flat.

I used to believe that Fred Flinstone's next door neighbor was named "Bonnie" (which is how it is pronounced in the show) and this seemed to me like a perfectly masculine name. I never associated it with the female name "Bonnie" which sounded perfectly feminine. It never occured to me until I was a teenager that the guy's name was actually "Barney" and that "Bonnie" would come acrosss as an odd name for a man.

As a child, I thought some cartoons were made with human actors and scenery and the film then was edited to give it a "cartoon" look.

I used to think that cartoons took place all in the same day, that's why the characters never changed their clothes.

I used to think that the characters in the simpsons were yellow because the creator didn't have any skin coloured markers when the first episodes were made. Maybe it's true!
