I used to believe whaen I was bout six that when I watched t.v. the people on t.v. could see me as well. I used to have a crush on Tom from "Tom & Jerry" so I would always get dressed before I watched that show so he wouldn't see me in my p.j.'s.

When my mom was about 3 or 4, she believed people inside the tv could see her. She thought John Wayne was hott, so everytime he came on tv she'd get her rocking chair out and show off for him. She remembers trying to walk all "pretty" in front of the tv to try and impress him!! Haha.

I used to believe that news presenters could see you through the screen just like you could see them. When watching the news i would always try and look very intellectual and my sister would always stop picking her nose.

I used to believe that the newscaster reading the news could see me from where they were sitting so i would have to sit nicely and behave properly.

I used to think that the folks on TV could see you too (especially that woman on Romper Room when she looked through her magic mirror).

When I was 6 and my sisters and brothers were in school, I would watch Mr. Rogers. I remember my mom coming in the room once and telling me to get dressed cause we were going somewhere. I began undressing and looked back at the T.V. thinking Mr. Rogers would see me naked. I turned off the T.V.

I had a friend that used to believe that the news reporters on tv could see her as she was watching them- so she'd dress up and sit neatly infront of the tv smiling at the news reporters for hours..

When I was about 6, I used to think that Lorne Greene from Bonanza could see me through the television, and I refused to change into my pajamas without hiding behind a chair. Interestingly enough, he was the only one I thought could see.

When I was a child, I believed that the people on TV could look back into the camera and see everyone that was watching. During the children's learning activities (ie. Sesame Street, Polka Dot Door), I would go out of my way thinking that they would tell my parents if I didn't

I used to think that when you watched the TV the person on the other side had a TV that they could see me through it!

I used to pull faces at the TV and if someone laughed I thought it was because I was pulling faces at them.

I once believed that newscasters could see you through the telly 'cos they were looking straight at you, and was always on my best behaviour in front of the tv. :)

one evening, when I was in the third or fourht grade me and my grandma were watching one of David Copperfield's magic specials and there came a time in the show when David wanted the audience to put their fingers on the screen and participate in the trick, so I put my finger on the screen, and, having a second thought i removed it and David looked into the camera and said, "no, no, put it back, even though i'm here and you're there, i can see what you're doing." my mouth dropped to the floor and I looked at my grandma and her mouth was hanging open too. true story.

I used to believe( when I was 4 or 5y or so) that people on television could see people who were watching television....so when there was a host or an actor I didn't like I started to make funny faces...
One day my mom asked me what I was doing and I explained her and she started laughing and this story is haunting me since then.

I used to believe that the people on TV could see me and I wouldn't do anything rude when I was watching it. I guess I was around 4 or 5.

We used to have our bath right before the news was on at 6pm and so we used to get dressed in front of the TV, except for my brother who hid behind the couch so the news readers couldn't see him - the only problem was the couch sat in front of the glass siding door that our neighbours could see clearly through.

When watching T.V. when very young I used to believe that the people inside the television could see me as well as me being able to see them, I always made sure I was dressed when watching T.V.!!! I also used to listen to music on the radio a lot and believed that the pop-groups and singers were actually in the studio with the D.J. and played their latest song live when he introduced them. Eventually I said to myself "I think he cheats, and plays records and that the Rolling Stones aren't there with him after all."

I had a similar experience as another poster here. I was watching Sesame Street back when nobody but Big Bird (and us kids) believed in Mr. Snuffalupagus. Well, he was walking right behind Gordon once and I shouted out "he's right behind you!!!". Gordon turned to the camera (me) and replied, "did you say 'he's right behind me?''" From that day forward I never sat in front of the TV in my underwear again.
