I used to think that when you turned off the TV, it paused like a video. I remember having a temper tantrum when I was younger. I was watchin a cartoon and my mum said we had to go shopping and that the show would still be on later. A few hours later and I discovered the news was on, I was so angry cuz someone had unpaused the TV.
Remember the "Wonderful World of Disney" that used to come on ABC? Well, now I know it aired on Sunday no duh, but I really thought the announcer was saying something like "The Wonderful World of Disney proudly presents... Beauty and the Beast...Someday at 7:00, only on ABC!!!"
When he was really saying "Sunday" at 7:00.
On account of this, I thought I had to keep waiting and waiting until "someday" ABC decided to finally air Beauty and the Beast. So instead of watching it on Sunday, I'd be in front of the TV on weekdays to be terribly dissapointed and finally came to the conclusion that ABC was fibbing. I thought it was some kind of joke and I always wondered who the wise guy was. It took a whole lot of coaxing from my babysitter one "Someday" to find that i didn't have to wait and that ABC was not a big, fat liar, decieving poor little kids like me.
when my cousin was little (like 5) she was in a dance class. one day we were watching people dance on the t.v she wanted to go in the tv and dance too. she ran to her room and put here dance clothes on she ran to the living room and stared crying when her mom told her she could not go in the tv and dance with the people
my mom said that if i watched tv for too long my head would turn square shaped. I definately thoght that this was true when i was little and there was even a time when i was sure my head was going square.
when i was younger, the tv had to 'warm up' before it could actually show anything on screen..when you turned it on, it was just white noise..and then the national anthem would play then all the shows would start to air..and whenever i got too close to the tv or touched the screen, my mother told me that the tv would suck my blood if i touched it or came too close to it..i actually thought that up until i moved to north america...
I used to believe that if you took a polaroid of a television screen that the polaroid as it developed would continue to play out the scene!
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.
my mum used to think that on tv shows where things happened she would say " how did they know it was going to happen to film it in time?'
i used to belive when my dad used to watch the footy on TV if we couldn't see the scores in the top corner of the TV, if u peered round the edges of the screen you could see it. My neck must've really hurt...
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.
I used to think that all the charaters on T.V. were real.
when i was a little kid i useto beleive that if you sat on the ground to watch TV somehow the ground would turn into a sea and only the furniture could float & you would drown ..
if I watched too much TV, I would get 'googly eyes' as mom promised, and my eyes would pop out of my head.
