When there was a problem with a TV station, the announcer would as everyone to please stand by... my brother and I would promptly get up and stand by the television set.

I used to believe that the shopping network couldn't possibly be the same thing 24/7. So I would stay up till "late" at night to see if it would ever change into something else.

When I was little, my older brother had the wise idea of scaring me by threatening to turn me off with the remote control and I was so dumb to believe him. So everytime he wanted to have some fun, he'd just point the remote at me and say "I'm going to turn you off", and I'll go off running and creaming because I didn't wanted him to turn me off.

When i was younger my mum said that watching too much TV would make your eyes go square, i believed it fully. Quite a few years later i asked her that if TV's make your eyes go square why don't they make round TV's

Whenever I would watch TV and see a commercial for something I wanted, I'd try to call and order it. However, they always said, "Dial the number on your screen," and every time I'd climb up to the window, look all around the screen on the window, and get really mad, thinking i'd missed it.
I guess at some point I figured out they mean TELEVISION screen.

I used to think that the people in the TV were talking to me, and I was an integral confidante in their messy lives (TV soaps were a big thing in my house).

I also used to stand right up at the TV and try to see the stuff that was outside the picture - thinking it was a window. I used to get SO frustrated 'cause no matter how close I went, or how much I craned my head, I could never get a glimpse of the rest of Telly World...

I used to believe the when you heard people clapping on television shows that they were other people at home watching tv just like me. So I used to laugh outloud in hopes that others were hearing me.

I was once very puzzled as to why TV weather reports would sometimes repeatedly say that the weather was "overcast". I thought they could reduce the problem by NOT repeating the reports so much. (I thought that "overcast" meant forecasted too much.)

When I was 4, I thought the person who was in the TV was going to go out. LOL

When I was little, I thought that the "viewer discretion is advised" warnings before television programs meant that you weren't supposed to talk about what you saw.

I very much enjoyed a show called Jonathon Creek (and still do actually) and when it first started I was about nine or so. Well I hadn't missed a single epsiode until that point and so I was baffled when my mum said I couldn't watch it one evening. I demanded to know why and her response was: "The actor who plays Jonathon is sick tonight and can't be in it," and I actuallly *believed* her.

(It later turned out that that epsiode had a fairly tame sex scene in that she hadn't wanted me to see)

When I was little my mother used to watch Star Trek and as this was before I realised that most TV wasn't live. In one scene a character was wearing an outfit and then seconds later the scene changed to one later that day and there he was in another. I remember asking in bafflement how could actors change their clothes so quickly and my mother answered absently that they probably had a machine for it. For *ages* I believed that all actors had to run of stage and stand still while this little robot dressed them and then run off to act again. I asked my mother about this later and she said that because we'd been watching Star Trek she's thought I meant the characters getting changed rather than the actors.

When I was little I loved the muppet show. The time that the show came on where I lived was 6:30. Where both hands met at 6:30 on the living room clock was a word that began with the letter "M". Knowing very few letters at the time I thought that the word was "muppet" and that that would be the time that my tv show would always came on.
One day I was really upset when it did not come on when both hands on the clock were pointed on "muppet". Looking back on it know it was probably a weekend when the regular programs during the week are not played.

I watched TV shows that sometimes had "applause" signs. I believed that the signs said "applesauce" and wondered why it would say that.

When I was little, my mother told me that in the video where Courtney Cox is dancing with Bruce Springsteen, that it was her, and i believed her for many years, and even told my friends.

I used to think that only kids could see Barney. If adults watched the show, they could only see the children talking to each other but never Barney.
