I used to believe that normal people would go in front of a special machine to make them tiny, then they would jump in our tvs to be on the tv shows. i always looked behind the tv to see where they got in and if i'd be able to get in there.

There used to be what was called "MIllion Dollar Movie" - it would feature a different movie every week, but the movie would be repeated at various intervals during the day - say 9:30 am, 12:30 pm, 4:30 pm, 7:30 pm and 9:30 pm every single day for a whole week.
I would watch my favorite movies every single time I could, thinking that the NEXT time I watched, the commercial breaks would maybe come at a different point in the film, so I could see what happened next.

I used to think that once you turned off a tv set or radion, the shows would all pause until you turned it on again, at which time it would resume. I never really thought about how other people watched tv, though. I figured that they just would pop on the set and a sign would come up saying, "The TV is frozen at the moment, please watch again later." I thought we were really lucky that it never did that to me.

my freind used to belive that if she touched the television she would get sucked in, needless to say she was terrified of having to live with barney for the rest of her life if she touched the TV

I used to think that the people on tv would just stay at home all the time waiting for the phone to ring saying their show was going to be on. Then they'd have to rush over to the studio to do the show or commercial. Whenever a show wasn't on when I thought it would be it was because the actors got stuck in traffic.

#1:i used to belive if u put i hole in the tv screen i could jump in and be on the show with all of the celebs of course, i did not realize that the shows had already been filmed. how stupid of me
#2: i used to think that if a person was dating on the show that they would be dating in real life. now i realize that only some celebs do that, like adam brody and rachel bilson.

I used to believe that when you turned off the TV, the show you were watching paused. When I came back home from doing something, I always got pissed at my family b/c I thought that they turned the TV on.

I used to think EVERYTHING on tv was live, which led to thinking that every time they showed a comercial, they had to get the same actors and everything to do it over again. I thought they had to redo it everytime it was shown... this continued untill i finally asked someone, "wouldn't it be hard to make a comercial be exactly the same every time??" lol

When I was little I used to believe that when you switch off the TV the film you were watching stops exactly there, and you can watch the rest of the film by switching on the TV again (even on the next day or so!).

When I was little I didn't understand that TV stations only advertised their own programs, so I would get really annoyed when they'd say when a particular show was on but never mention what channel. I used to get so frustrated tuning in and going through all the channels until I found the show I wanted!

When I was about 3 or 4, I thought that a TV worked because there were little people behind the TV. So whenever I was watching Sesame Street or something, I'd look behind the TV and be confused as to why there were no people there.

I used to think that having a bad signal from a tv or radio station meant that other people had already sucked up all the signal before it got to our house, and there wasn't enough to go around.

I used to believe that the laugh tracks you would hear on comedy TV shows were actual people, just like me, in their actual homes laughing. So, I would wait for times when people weren't laughing and I would laugh out loud, really loud, so that everyone out there across the country could hear ME! Sometimes I would try doing a really loud "BOO HOO" during sad parts of non-comedy shows, just in case. Boy was I full of myself or what?

when i was a kid and used to watch quiz shows that offered the 'holiday of a lifetime', I actually thought that you went on holiday for the rest of your life!

I used to think the people in TV could see me and that the violence was real in movies. I also believed that TVs stop programming "late at night" when I go to sleep, which was around 9PM.

When I was about four or five, I believed that the tv worked like the vcr: if you turned it off in the middle of the show, it'd pick up right where you left it. I thought that my tv was broken for months because when I had to turn off 'My Little Pony' to go to school, I'd come home, turn it back on and there would be an afternoon talk show on. I was always so disappointed.

I once voted (aged 9ish) for a kids' TV-presenter by pressing a 'button' on the screen and watching the metres rise.

I actually believed they had somehow got a touch-screen capacity for the 'vote'.

I felt cheated that my vote didn't win.

My vote was the smelly tramp thrown in for comic effect (by rising furthest in the 'voting' chart, and then being pipped by the pre-selected presenter).
