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.

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.

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".

I had already been taught that Stevie Wonder was blind by the first time that I saw him on television. I wanted to see what a blind man's eyes looked like, and honestly believed that if I got close enough to the television, that I could look behind his glasses. I was pressed up against the screen trying to see behind them for ages before I finally gave up.

I sincerely believed that a TV program would stop at the exact moment that you turned the TV off. I would turn the TV back on, and be totally confused as to why the storyline, or even worse, the entire program, had changed.

I sed to believe that out of work pirates lived in the TV remote and it works by them firing microscopic bullets at the buttons on the TV. This was obviously how the remote worked.

When I was about 6, whenever I saw a woman in TV that seemed not to have too much clothes on, I always run close to the TV screen and tried to peep down to see if I could get the whole picture, as women always appeared from shoulder up... The only thing I managed was to cover the screen with fingerprints and "face-prints" and a huge frustration. Thought the TV was a kind of window or something.. So dumb!!

I used to belive that the people on the news were sitting in the TV and that if I unscrewed the back, I would be able to be seen on TV.
