When we were younger, both my sister and I thought that Mr. T. was saying "I'm pinny the po fu. Don't eat my cereal". He was not saying that, rather he was saying "I pity the poor fool who don't eat my cereal."
I used to believe that when I watched TV, people were in there acting stuff out.
I used to believe that Wombles (from the show 'Wombles of Wimbledon Common' - all you Brits should be familiar!) were real.
Now, I was a smart kid; I didn't think that Wombles really went around in clothes and talked and so on. But I thought that they were real creatures on which the show had been based.
We lived in Wimbledon at the time, and my mum would often take me to the Common to look for 'Wombles'. She was of course just playing along with the belief that real Wombles in clothes and hats were cleaning up the park. However, I was deadly serious about finding a 'real' Womble, which I imagined was a small scurrying mammal.
My mum was very amused when, at 18, I was talking about how we'd never seen an actual Womble at the Common in all those years. I was actually pretty saddened to learn there was no such thing.
last time when the television was on i thought the people were performing in it -.-
My dad was a handy-man, construction worker, and mechanic. Because he was always fixing things around the house and working on projects like re-building motorbikes, I thought he could build ANYTHING. I also REALLY loved cartoons. So one day, I had the greatest idea. I asked my dad to please build a button on the television that transported me into the cartoon I was watching when I pressed it. He rubbed my head and jokingly said he would do it. I actually thought he would.
I used to think when someone on TV said "brought to you by so and so company they were actually saying "brocktued by". It took me a while before I figured out brocktued wasn't a word.
When I was a kid, like 4 or 5 years old, I believed that i can broke a TV screen and then went through it to any place that was on the TV at the time.. I actually planed on really doing that when some big square with a lot of pigeons show up on a TV... :)
when i was younger i used to believe that whenever i watched t.v or a movie especially the people acting or using their voices in the animation (or w/e) were doing it at the exact moment that i was watching it, like it was being recorded live and transmitted into my t.v. and i used to say to myself "wat a sad, sad job they must have- running to the studio every time someone wanted to see the movie...." hehehe silly 'ole me... :-D
i used to believe that if you bought an old tv it would only play films or programmes from its era. made perfect sense at the time!
i used to believe there was a little tiny man inside the video camera my dad used to use. so when no one was looking i would get really close and tap on the glass, asking if he was okay, or if he needed some bread. we have the evidence on film
I came from my country to the US when I was 14, so of course I was new to commercials. One day I saw this commercial, I forgot for what car dealer it was, but at the end it said, Drivers wanted. So, innocent me called, thinking they actually needed drivers to work. As soon as I saw that the guy didn't know what I was talking about, I hang up, and felt really stupid lol.
I thought if I poked people on the tv in the eye, they would feel it and go 'ow'.
When I was little my parents used to record shows off the tv onto tapes. Every time they did I would constantly tell everyone to be quiet otherwise our voices would be recorded onto the tape with it and mess up the recording. It took me a while to realize that can't happen because everytime someone tried to tell me i kept telling them to be quiet until it's over.
You know how those "Closed captioning was brought to you by..." followed by silence. Up until a few years ago, I thought they were telling us who sponsored the show via the closed captioning and since mine wasn't on, I wasn't able to find out.
It became an obsession to try and turn on the closed captioning so I could at least ONCE see who sponsored such shows (I was somewhat jealous that there was information to which I wasn't privy). Of course, I never remembered until I heard those words announced, after which I'd fumble with remote only to be too late.
My fathers birthday is on St. Patrick's day, and i used to believe it when he told me the parade on T.V. was for him
When I was little I thougth all commericals were live. So everytime a commerical was made they were being filmed as I watched it and everytime a commerical came on directly after the other I thought they would act it out again.
I used to believe that there was a town named "Woodbie" because of watching the news and hearing about the "woodbie burglar," "woodbie car thief." Took me a few years to figure out it was "would be" - I was relieved, because I thought that Woodbie place had a lot of crime!
i used to believe the people in the tv were tiny and real, and i didn't understand how anyone could watch the same show at the same time on a different tv.
i also used to think that the radio had to play the same songs at the same time, and that i just couldn't figure out the pattern of them (daily, weekly, etc.)
As the daughter of someone who obsessively taped television specials, I and my sister used to believe that all that needed to be done to create a videotape would be to attach a label and write the name of the video on it.
We were confused why writing "Cinderella" on a blank tape resulted in mere static.
When I was a kid, I used to read through the TV guide and newspaper looking to see what would be on. I always wanted to see what show "To Be Announced" was, but something else was always on instead...
