Our son thought if you turned off the TV it would save your place like a bookmark in a book. (He was 5 before he remembers seeing TV, we lived in Europe)
I Used to believe that When you watched TV they were actually taping it at that time and it was Live so i watched 2 movies that had the Same Character in it and i was like "Dad How did that actor get into two places at once?"
I used to believe that the cool aid man was evil and he'd break through my wall and get me.
I thought if you turned the T.V. off while a person was on screen, they would die!
I used to wait for ages for a scene without people in to turn it off...
while watching movies when the people in their didn't know who the culprit was but we knew it. I thought I could impress them by going inside the television and telling them who the culprit is..
My dad bought a new tv when i was like 5-6.. and i was amazed to see both tvs played the same thing.. I used to run up and down to check if it was any different.. and as it played the same thing.. i was convinced that they were running around like me to participate in two different televisions.. :P
I used to believe that I wouldn't be able to be famous because my ex-boyfriends would go on television and talk about our relationship.
Until I was about 14 and studied Geography in school, I was convinced that the weather lady on the TV was saying "in the eyes of our chart" instead of "on the isobar chart"...
I remember thinking that when you heard the censors who laugh on sitcoms, it was actually the laughter of the other people in the world watching the same show at the same time. So, whenever no one in my family was in earshot, I would laugh in really strange ways point blank into the TV's speakers so the whoever was watching would be entertained.
I had no clue what re-runs were. I thought that all lvie action shows were shot live in the studio, and I was shocked that they actually recorded them and showed them later.
i thought that all of the shows on tv where played live even when someone died. sad, i no.
As a young child I believed that actors didn't look anything like the characters they portrayed. They were all wearing elaborate rubber masks (think Mission Impossible) designed to make them look like the writers' imaginings of their characters.
There was this show in the 90's about Mary-Kate and Ashley being detectives or something. When I was really young I would always sit through the whole episode looking for Kate. (I thought Mary-Kate was two names. Like there was three girls, Mary, Kate, and Ashley.)
when i was little i used to check behind the tv to see if i could find the place where all the people got in at.
I used to beleive that tiny people climbed in my tv and couldn't get out one day i had my fathers screwdriver and was trying to 'free the people' and my mum came in and told me off i thought i was like moses and shouted 'LET MY PEOPLE GO' she burst out laughingand told me the truth then i went bright red and sat in the corner and sulked and my mum teased me all day saying 'look katie someones coming out of the tv!!!'
I used to believe that a little man in our t.v. ran a film of whatever movie was on. So when I left a really good movie I would unplug the t.v., come back hoping to see the rest of the movie where I left off. Never really worked...
When i was a kid i saw a drawing representing a Proteus holding fire on his palm. That led me to believe for years that any fire seen on tv and movies is fake and cold to touch.
After stubbornly not leaving when ER came on TV, my mother tried to make me feel better about all the blood and gore by saying "it's ok, its not real"
For years after i thought blood and guts and even my brain wasnt real, and real people were hollow inside.
I used to think people didnt actually kiss on tv,i thought that the computer just made it look that way.
I remember watching a baseball game and thinking that if a foul ball hit the TV camera, a baseball would come through the TV in every household that was watching that game. It seemed like this would be a great way to distribute certain items (like food) around the world.
