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.
i used to believe i was spongebob squarepants in a previous life.
once i told my bro when he was 6 i think that if you jumped into the tv you would actually be in whatever show you were watching. he tried it lets just say my parents were not too impressed
I used to want to be the same age as bart simpson or any other fake people on tv. And then I found out that some fake people stay the same age
For several years I used to listen to the TV news reports of guerillas attacking people in Guatemala and Mozambique, but thought they were talking about gorillas.
I thought the guy who got shot at the beginning of Gunsmoke was replaced every week by a live guy.
I used to think that the laughter on TV sitcoms were really people at home laughing. Sometimes when I was by myself, I used to laugh either really loud or when I wasn't supposed to at my TV.
I used to believe that the TV, before buying it, went to different places and recorded the events there. Then the TV would be bought by my parents and we would watch its "travels".
I believed that Archie and Edith Bunker (from the TV Show ALl in the Family) were my grandparents. I remember getting excited and announcing to the family that "Grandma and Grandpa are on the TV!"
i assumed that when I turned the TV off, the show would stop, and never understood why, when i turned the TV back on after dinner, my cartoons were gone and the evening news was on instead. :(
I use to believe Mountain Gorillas were attacking people in Columbia because of the news mentioning gorilla attacks.
I used to spend my week-ends at my Grand-Ma's and spend a good amount of time in front of the TV. In the evening we would inevitably watch the weather forecast. I was convinced that the man on TV got to decide how the weather would be the next day. I was extremely puzzled by the rain. Why would he ever want rain ? Then I understood: my Grand-Ma had a garden with tons of vegetables and fruits, so that must be why, people like her needed the rain, and the man on TV was just making them happy too...
When i was young i used to believe that if you broke the tv screen open and jumped in you would be in whatever tv show or movie was on at the time
Up until a few years ago I used to belive that Tony Robinson and Timmy Mallet were the same people. You can imagine my boyfriend's delight whilst watching Time Team, as I continued to remark on how surprising it is that Tony Robinson has managed to forge a serious presenting career after being known for so long as a wacky kids TV host. I still get confused now!
I used to think "Hulk Hogan" was really "Haul Kogan" before I knew his name!
I used to think that i really would go blind if i sat too close to the TV and I would ask my friends moms if they would take care of me if I went blind
When I was a kid, I used to believe if you were watching TV, and you turned it off, it paused.
