When I was little (maybe 2 or 3), my family was sitting in the living room and my mom was watching the news. Operation Christmas Child was on the report, and when I heard that the kids didn't get presents, I took one of my presents from under our Christmas tree and tried to give it to one of the kids on the tv.

I used to believe that when a comercial came on during a TV show, the show kept playing, and we were missing that part of it. I found out the truth when I was 12 or 13, when we were watching a particularly suspensful TV show, and a comercial came on right at the hight of the suspense. I yelled at the TV "Why do they always make us miss the good parts?!" My Dad laughed and told me how it really works.

When I was little I thought that watching TV too closely would give you sqaure eyes. So I one day went up to the TV and watched it real closely and turned to my mother and said "are my eyes sqaure". My little sister had a friend who used to watch the TV real closely and she had an eye patch (due to the fact she had a weak eye) but I thought it was the damage from her getting sqaure eyes!

I used to believe that what was showing on black & white TVs was filmed in places without color. I felt bad for those unfortunate people that had to live in black & white.

Throughout my childhood until I was about, oh I'd say age 10, I always belived that the laughter I was hearing on the TV during certain programs, such as sitcoms, was coming from other peoples homes as they too watched the same show. Who knew there was a such thing as a "live studio audience?"

Whenever they would say "This show is brought to you by..." Since I never actually saw the words on the screen, and they just said them, I didn't realize that "brought to you" was 3 separate words. I thought it was one long fancy word that I wouldn't understand until I was older. It sounded like they were saying "bra-tah-yoo" or something. Heheh.
Finally one day they actually put the words on the screen, and I went "Ohhhh!"

I used to believe people on tv could hear me. That's why, like they never answered me, I hated all of them. And no, I'm not ashamed!

que les gens à la télé pouvait nous entendre. Je les trouvais très mal poli, ils ne me répondaient jamais.

I used to think that if I watched too much TV, I would forget how to read. Sometimes when I was sick and had spent the whole day in front of the TV, I would grab a book to check if my reading skills had worsened.

When I was about 5 or 6, I was watching the Disney Channel before I went to bed. When I woke up the next morning and turned on the tv, the same show was on. this led me to believe that when you turn off the tv, it pauses and you can watch it later if you turn the tv back on. I only believed this for a few months.

When I was little, I was scared to death of sleeping infront of a TV that was turned off. I thought that when the TV was off, a giant humanoid space ant would crawl out, and drag you back into the TV. It got so bad that I ran down the hallway screaming once and I peed on the carpet.

I used to think that a guy would sit in a big circular room with light switches underneath every tv channel screen. When the time came he would switch the switch for commercials. But he would sometimes make mistakes which was why some commercials were so short.

I was about 5 years old when my grandmother was interviewed on t.v. I freaked out & thought she was trapped in the television; I was inconsolable for the rest of the night.

I used to believe, when I was little, that if i sat close enough to the TV (like with my face right on the tv) and I looked up, down or on the sides I'd be able to see more.

I used to belive that if u tried to look closely into the side of the TV, you would be able to see the rest of the picture

I used to think if you busted the TV the inside would be like a milky substance.

I also used to think people on TV didn't know they were on TV that a camera was following them around.

When I was a kid i used to believe that loads of tiny little people lived inside my tv....and every time I turned on the tv they would hold pictures up to the screen. They would change the pictures really quickly, faster than the naked eye could see, to make stories and tv programs for me to watch.

I was 14 when I figured out that cable tv is not a free public service and that it costs money.
