I used to be scared to go behind the television because I thought the people in the TV were very tiny and acting behind the TV. I thought when the show ended and you changed the channel, they would still be watching. Every...Little...Step!

Im not sure if i actually believed this or not but i remember asking my mom about this when i was little. we were watching a show on TV and i asked my mom if when we turned the TV off, the characters on TV were watching us. i guess I had this idea that we watch the characters but they also watch us.

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.

My cousins used to think that when you were watching tv, the people on tv were watching you, so when a female came on the screen, they wouldn't change in front of them.

When I was extremely young I believed that people inside the TV could see me, so I was really careful with my appearance.

When I Was Younger, I Used To Believe That News Reporters On Televison Could Actually See You, So I Would Make Head Gestures To Let Them Know I Was Paying Attention.

I Also Licked My Tongue, And Held My Middle Finger Up To The Reporter And Ducked Behind The Dresser lol

I used to think people on TV could see mee also. So one day I was watching a PBS science show on which a man was dressed in a rat costume. So I put on my Halloween costume, a cat, and repeatedly hissed at him & would run behind my grandpap's recliner.

my sister told me once that people on tv could see you. over here in the UK we used to have a kids segment on the BBC called "cbbc, in the broom cupboard" (something like that) once the presenter at the time, Andy Peters, told the viewers to stop sucking their thumbs and pay attention, my sister happend to be sucking her thumb at the time and scared her whitless... this example of the power of tv stuck with me through my childhood, i was always on my best behaviour whilst watching!

When I was a little boy, I always thought that people on television could see me the same way I could see them. So whenever I would be running around the living room in my scooby doo underwear and my mom would turn on The Price is Right (or some other oddly related show) I would run off and put some clothes on. I just remembered this as I was reading thru some of the other "beliefs", so I gotta good laugh. thx =)

This is a very common belief, but i decided to share it anyway.

I used to believe that when i watched TV, the people on TV were watching me, but it was only in specific shows.

I was alway trying to impress the people on TV.

I thought that people (or things) on TV could see you. This was confirmed when I was 4 and I was watching KidSongs. The little blue sock puppet guy was choosing someone to sing a song and I happened to be wearing a pink shirt and he goes "You, in the pink shirt!" and so I started singing the song :). Later I tried to convince my dad that the TV people can see you!

i used to believe that the people on tv could see you. once i waved my hand at a character on sesame and (coincidently or perhaps only in my imagination) they waved back. from that point on, i would always wave at the tv, but the people on tv were always ignoring me, being too busy with their own lives to wave back.

I used to believe that the people on tv could really see and hear you, so if they asked a question, I would run to the speaker on the front of the tv and yell the answer out to them.
Also, if I was afraid to leave the room while the tv was on, because I thought the people would be mad because they were left by themselves.
