I use to always believe that whenever you saw two people in a movie or on TV kissing, in a sex scene, etc., they had to be related. It would have been wrong if they weren't since then they would have been strangers.

I used to believe that, if you were looking at the tv, and if there was a group of people and the camera was scanning along them, and if it went past someone you thought you knew, you could walk up to the tv and look into the screen sidway's and you would see them... teeheehee!

I used to believe that by simply writing the name of a movie on the white box on video cassettes, it would automatically be the movie.

When I was around eight, I believed that all of the television channels existed inside the TV set like pages in a book, and if you flipped between them you were flipping the pages.

My mom and I were watching country music videos when I was little. Hank Williams JR. cussed in a song, and I walked up to the TV and started hitting the screen. I thought he was inside the TV, and I was giving him a spanking for cussing.

I used to believe that if I threw a tennis ball at my Tv screen it would break it and I could crawl inside and go into my favourite tv show and be part of it, playing with the characters and everything.

top belief!

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 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.

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.

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.
