When I was really little, we only had basic cable (17 channels or so), and there were only a select few shows that I was allowed to watch (Sesame Street, Polka Dot Door, Mr. Dress-up), and of course, my parents watched the news from time to time, and my dad watched golf. So, logically, I believed that these were the only shows in existence, and each show had its own channel. So, it made perfect sense to me to say "Can someone please turn the TV to Sesame Street" on any day, at any time.......and I'd be upset if it wasn't on, lol.

I used to think that whenever a character died in a show or moive, that the actor playing the character died. I used to think that acting must be a stupid job, cause one day you'd have to die, just to make the story.

I used to believe that tiny little gnomes lived inside my television, and anytime I pushed a button on the remote to watch something, they would run and search for the video tape of it, and put it in really quick.

My mom used to laugh at me when I'd try to look through the vents on the side of the television to peek at them.

I used to believe when I watched TV the people or cartoon characters I saw would come to my house and act behind the TV. When they "put" on a commercial I would yell at them.

I thought that inside my TV there were all the characters of my favorite shows. Once my father caught me poking the TV with a stick trying to get Topogigo (one of my favorites) out.

I used to believe that whenever you turned off your TV, th Image would stay the same. That is the reason I did not get to watch most of my cartoons.

When I was maybe 5 or 6, I used to believe that whatever channel I turned the television to would appear on every single television in the whole world. I would randomly flick through the channels or switch to a boring TV station if I felt like making the world mad.

I've never actually had Sky TV and the first time I saw it was at my then boyfriend's house (now my fiance), only about 5 years ago so I was early 20s. Anyway I thought when the menu comes up and you can see what's on later on that day, that you could just go to that programme and watch it, even if it's not on til later that day. What an idiot!

Amazingly he's still marrying me even though I'm clearly totally stupid.

When I was a young teen in the late 40's, tv was a new thing to most households. While watching an old Western shoot-em-up, I asked my mom how they got someone to take the pictures when electricity hadn't been invented yet. I didn't realize they were actors on a set in more modern times.

When I was youger, I used to believe that if you put the side of your face to the TV screen, you would be able to see everything else that they weren't showing you on the screen...like if there was a tree branch on TV, if I put the side of my face to the screen I would be able to see the WHOLE tree.

Once I watched a Shania Twain concert on TV and I thought if I turned the volume up it told her to sing louder.

I used to believe that when you watched tv whenever the shot was changed to a different camera that the operator would quickly pull out the tape and throw it to the next person who had the next shot.

I used to believe that the news reader on TV in the 80s (Lenon Parkin I think her name was) was called Lemon Parker! She came on the TV and mum asked me in front of others "who's she" and everyone laughed and I didn't know what was so funny!
