I used to think that the people on the T.V could see me so I would shut the T.V off before I would get dressed.

My mother always allowed my sisters and me watching movies like Ghost, Dirty Dancing and Pretty Woman... (you know, all the super appropriate movies for kids). And I used to believe while watching TV that the people in movies and television shows could see me, I could especially tell in those intensely emotional close-up shots in those movies. I would curve my eyebrows and try to be dramatic subtly during these moments thinking maybe they would adopt me to Hollywood as a terrific talent. I was also very scared to pick my nose while the TV was on...just in case that made them change their minds.

I believed that people could see you from tv. So I would stick out my tongue to see if I would get a reaction. But I would get nervous and run from the tv or turn it off quickly.

I used to believe that since I could see the people on television they could see me too so I always made sure to act appropriately so that no "star" would see me being bad.

I used to believe that newscasters were in my television and that they could see me, because their eyes followed me everywhere.

When I was little I watched a lot of PBS - Mr. Rogers, Sesame Street, Etc. Everytime they'd interupt a show to do a fundraising drive, I'd yell at the host and make fun of him/her. My mom told me the host could hear me and that I was hurting her feelings. I kept making fun of her anyway, but for a long time I thought that the people on TV actually lived inside the TV and could hear and see me.

When I was about 3 I was watching an M&M commercial and I was pickin' my nose, and then it hit me; if I can see them in the TV, they must be able to see me too, I imediatly stopped "digging for gold" and ran to my mom and asked her" can the people in the TV see me too?" she said no so I nran back to the TV and started picking my nose again! :)
Just so you know I dont pick my nose anymore!

I used to believe that the people on TV could see you. Just like you were able to see them. So I would never change clothes in front of the TV while it was on. My older, and wiser sister, told me that "they" (the people inside the TV) could see you even when it was off!! That was 45 years ago and I still don't have a TV in my bedroom - just in case "they" really can see!

when i was younger, my big sister told me that people on tv could see you like we could see them, so i used to go around trying to see if i could see them trying to look at me,and shows like "save by the bell" where "Zack" would call "timeouts" and talk to the camera helped the theory.

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.

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 think when I was little the people on tv could see what you were doing. So I'd never get dressed while watching tv or anything.

I used to believe that when you watched the tv, the people on the shows could see you at home through the screen, it took me a while to realise that wasn't the case. Also I used to believe every show was live and nothing was pre-recorded.

I used to believe that the people in the television could actually see you and knew what you were doing too. As a result, I never changed clotes in front of the television. :)

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

When I was about four or five I used to think the weather man could see me from inside the tv. i thought he was really talking to us and i guess that's why i thought he could see what we were doing.

I used to belive that the people who was on tv could see me just like I could see them... I never walked past the tv without being dressed, and before my favourite show (starring a boy I had a crush on) I put on a pretty dress and borrowed mum`s lipstick....

When I was fairly little, I was watching a soap opera with my mother. Back then, I used to believe that the actors and actresses could see me, so I'd start waving at the tv and I would try to uphold a conversation with them, and get angry when they didn't respond.

But my mother told me otherwise. Lol.
