when i was little, i thought that with the right tool, you could open up the back of the tv and go inside. i was quite upset when i discovered i couldn't go inside and visit the characters of my favorite shows.

I used to believe that when you turned the TV off ,all the programs would stop. so i would leave the TV on when there was a program i didnt like just because i thought it was the only way to watch the next one.

When I was little, I turned on the TV to find there was no programme on and there was a still image of a little girl playing naughts and crosses on a black board. I didn't know this meant there was nothing on and I thought this little girl was a mean little cow, so I tried to indimidate her by staring her down to make her put the programmes back on! Needless to say I couldn't stare her down...

I used to think that a television show would stop when you turned off the set. This meant you could watch it for a little while, go play, and then pick up where you left off when you returned. I was devastated to learn that life revolves aorund the programming, rather than the programming around life. I never saw the end of that episode of Fraggle Rock...

When I was a kid, I believed our TV received the ‘white shows’, because we were a ‘white family’, and there were ‘black shows’ which were broadcast to the homes of ‘black families’. When we started getting ‘Amos ‘n Andy’, I loved it and thought we were getting to watch one of those other broadcasts.

When I was little I used to believe that when we watched TV that we were watching in on what was happening in the house next door, and I believed that the house on the end of our street couldnt watch TV because they didnt have a next door neighbor. Gosh I was a loser, lol.

When I was a little kid, I believed that when you saw someone killed on television, that they were actually killed. I thought they just got people who wanted to commit suicide, or people who were sentenced to death for crimes, and put them in the tv show.

I used to believe that if you lay down under the TV and looked up at the screen, you'd see up people's clothing. And I also used to think that at the end of the cookery program, you'd be handed a nice cake to eat through the screen.

When I was little I believed that when I would turn off the television, the show I had been watching would stop and wait for me to come back. I distinctly remember one time watching a cartoon (I think it was Spiderman) and my mother and I had to leave to run an errand. I stood in front of the TV and instructed the show to wait for me so I could finish watching it when I returned. Imagine my disappointment.

When I was four, I adamantly believed that turning off my television would consequently turn off any other television in the neighborhood.

Needless to say, "Turn the TV off!" was a statement heard often around my house.

When I was little I used to believe that actors and actresses lived inside the VHS tape and I would ask them repeatedly whether they were ready for me to start the tape or not. I assumed that they just acted out the movie whenever I wanted them to.

My Mum and Dad would never let me watch rented videos more than once. They told me that the cassette had a counter in it, which the shop checked and would charge us the fee for each time the video was watched by us.

I went to my friend's house and they had a VCR. I actually thought it was real-time TV that they had the ability to fast-forward, and rewind if they'd missed a bit. I was devastated when I realised the truth.

Another friend got Teletext and I was absolutely mystified by the prospect of 'reading' your TV whilst the sound played over it. I thought these gadgets must be worth millions and that my parents would NEVER in a million years be able to afford them. We got them about a year later.

whenever people on shows like Barney or something would talk to me when i was little (like "hello, kids! are you ready to have some fun?", i always answered because i didnt want to be rude. even if i didnt feel like it, i would answer. one day, i decided i would be mean and not answer and it came as an incredible disapointment that they couldnt actually hear me.
