I used to believe that if you sat to close to the T.V. to long your eye sockets would pop out and stick to the T.V like super- glue. Needless to say when my dad said back-up from the T.V., I listined. The dumb thing is that i believed this untill i was about 7 years old

I used to believe that if I turned off the TV or changed the channel, the whole street's TVs would change too and that our neighbors would be so mad at me and come after me. Once, my mom turned off the TV and I threw a fit saying that the neighbors were going to come get us. She just laughed at me though.

When I was around 8, I used to read the TV Guide very carefully in the hopes that SOMETHING good would come on the three channels we had. I would always come across this show called "To Be Announced". It seemed to come on a LOT, so it must have been important. I was convinced that since it came on late at night or really early on Sunday, it was a public affairs program, probably promoting Black pride ("To Be ANNOUNCED!", like "I am SOMEBODY!"). I tried to watch it a few times, but it was always a different show. When it finally dawned on me, I think it was the first "forehead slap" of my life.

I used to believe that there were people in the TV that watched the shows and laughed at the funny parts, and thats why on some shows you can hear other people laughing (which i now know is the studio audience)

i thought when i was a child, that when you watch something on TV, EVERYONE was watching it, at the same time. Everywhere.

When I was small, I used to think there were people who lived in the tv and performed things. Later, when I understood that the pictures were transmitted from a studio, I thought the actors had to be there to perform things everytime the thing they were in was shown. I thought the people in the adverts must be quite heroic - they had to get pretty tired jumping to every time the adverts came on, after all. Oddly, I think I did understand that videos were just recordings, though.

I used to believe that people on TV shows, actually WERE in the TV. Particularly Scooby Doo, for some reason. And I had this 'lifelong dream' of finding a secret way into the TV and solving mysteries with the gang, and to be Daphne's best friend.

i used to belive there was a t.v shot you got when you were 7 years old(thanks to my older sister) and she told me that all you see when you get the shot is a tv show. (the shot is really called tb not tv, and not everybody gets them) I was talking about it all the time, it has 4 different needles and it goes in the tip of your finger. and then i found out that you don't see tv and i didn't need the shot.

I used to believe that everything we watched on t.v is on a giant roll of tape at the t.v station and that someday it will run out.

I used to believe that if you turned the TV off when you turned it back on it would be at the spot where you left it. I was very upset when I turned the TV back on to watch Rescue Rangers to find that it was Terry Wogan's chat show instead.

I used to think that characters on television were people in a box and when you turned on the TV they would run up the cable cord and into the TV.

We had a TV antenna on the roof that would turn by rotating a dial in the house. My Aunt Linda told me there was a tiny man in there turning the antenna, and I believed her for a long time.

I used to believe that the persons appearing on tv just hid behind the tv set.So I would go behind it to to chek whether they were there or not.

Back "in the day" television stations occasionally went off the air, and a message, "please stand by" would show on the screen. My mother and older sister convinced me that I had to get up off the couch and go "stand by" the t.v. w/ my hand on top of it (so they would know I was there)
I would act all disgusted, though secretly pleased that I had the power to bring the show back on the air.

I used to believe if you turn of the tv in one spot next time you'd turn it on it would be the same thing

When my favorite TV station would sign on in the morning, they would have a "good morning" announcement and then show the test pattern with some music for 15 minutes before the first show came on. The last thing the announcer said before fading to the test pattern was something about "the best in entertainment". So I thought the test pattern was "entertainment".
