I used to believe that there were little people in the T.V. My mum was watching a horror movie when I walked in. There was a person with a gun aimed at the screen, yelling something. I got so freaked out, I thought she was about to be shot! I called the police, and when they came, they thought it was so funny! Now, I know better. :)

Until I was about 6 years old I believed that the laughter and applause heard during sitcoms was coming from other people watching the show at home. I would shout into the TV speaker to see if anyone would answer me. Sadly, no one ever did. ;o)

I used to believe that whatever television show I decided to watch the rest of the world had to watch on their televisions also. If I changed the channel, the channel also changed on all of the other televisions in the world.

i used to be terrified of the show goosebumps. ( a show that acted out horror stories) so i thought that the freaky characters lived in the t.v and one time i wanted to smash the t.v open so the charcters would come out and i could get my dad to beat them up.

I believed that the way t.v shows were made was that every household was being filmed all the time. So I thought that maybe my family was on t.v. somewhere.

I had a very vivid and strong imagination as a kid. In my kitchen there used to be a big table with a very long table cloth over it. So me and my brother used to go under it and lean against the wall and watch tv from the tablecloth. I have no idea how I somehow created tv from the tablecloth but we would talk about we were watching too... wierd hell yeh

I am 45. When I was a child I used to believe that a TV show did not start until the TV was turned on, rather than at an exact time. I would get so upset on Saturday nights if I came in and my sister had already turned on "Red Skeleton." I would cry because I thought that she had "let it out" before I got there!

A long time ago, newsreaders would be looking at the teleprompter, but every so often, they'd pretend to glance down
and read from a piece of paper. When they did that, it would look to me as if they had closed their eyes. I used to wonder why they were talking little naps during the news!

I thought that little people crawled through the wires in the back of the TV...so that's how we could see them on TV.

My parents did a very good job of teaching my baby sister that the things you see on television aren't real. When she was 2 and I was 12, I went on the program "AM Chicago" to talk about a child safety program I was a counselor in. When my mother and sister turned on the TV at home to watch, my sister freaked out -- she thought that because she saw her brother on TV, it meant that he wasn't real anymore.

When I was a child, I used to believe that if you turned off you r tv during a show, that the show would "halt" where it was, and as long as no one turned on the tv before you got back to it, you could continue watching your show from where you left off. I used to think that someone turned the tv on when I was away, making me miss the rest of my show... This was before video recorders were availabe to the general public...

I used to believe that when I turned off the TV, whatever I was watching would "pause". When I came back and turned it on, I was disappointed to see it had kept going and was over.
