I thought that the people on television didn't exist at all because my parents always used to tell me they were fake.

When I was six, my grandpa was reading the tv guide, telling me what shows would be on later. I couldn't figure out for the life of me how people knew AHEAD of time what was going to be on!

when i was smaller like 3 or 4, i don't believe there's actors/actress on tv, unless i see them in reality. I always see them as robots.

When I was younger, I used to believe that every TV show or movie was actually taking place in another dimension. I believed that the people there were other versions of the people in this dimension, and that every time a new show came out, a new dimension was created. I'm 18, and I still kind of believe this.

When I was little, my old babysitter scared me into always rewinding videotapes by telling me the VCR would explode if the tape went all the way to the end. I believed it! To this day, out of habit, I still make sure to stop the tape and rewind.

When I was little, I used to believe that the names of the charactors an actor played on tv were their real names and the names showned in the credites didn't have anything to do with the actor.I growned out of it some years ago and came to learned that the names showned in the credites are the actors real names.

When watching tv in the seventies, people/animals etc that were superimposed using "special effects"(eg giant kitten on goodies) generally had a blue or orange outline. I assumed this was because they had eaten their ready brek that morning

I used to think shining a flash light into the TV would make a light appear on every single persons television that was watching the same exact show. I would think it was funny because I used to annoy my family by doing that, and the thought of annoying millions of other people in the world that were watching that same TV show gave me the giggles... I was a weird child.

I used to believe that when people kissed on tv they actually had a little peice of glass between eachothers' lips because it would just be crazy to actually kiss someone just for a tv show. And no one could tell because glass is clear.

I thought that my TV was a hotle for leprachauns. And when there was a show on TV that was the little people in the TV paying us with a performance. I had digital cable so i figured we must have had a five star hotel in order to have so many guests.

When I was 6, and my family was watching a show I didn't like, I would sit on the floor in front of the tv and cover my face with my knees, and i thought no one else in the room couldn't see the tv either. lol. i was nuts.

Back when I was two years old, I was afraid of my paternal grandfather when I was young because he was tall and intimidating. He also worked for his local PBS station. As a result, I used to think the PBS logo (the thing that looks like a dead-eyed bald head?) was a psycho killer hired by my grandpa because it looked exactly like him. It would stab me with that second head thing (?) to the right of it and finish the job with its sharp pointy nose, but if I looked at it in the mirror it wouldn't come out of the TV and hurt me. I also thought that if I didn't look at the right side of it, it wouldn't slice through the TV to destroy me. And when the announcer guy said "This is PBS," I thought it was the head thing's name, and the voiceover was introducing it. This fear persisted until I accidentally looked at it and didn't get stabbed.

I used to think that if you got close enough to the T.V. you could see up ladies dresses.

I used to think that when ever you turned the TV off, it would come back on to the same place when you turned it off.....weird!

Around the age of 6 I was convinced that the world inside the TV was real, and the only barrier between that world and myself was the glass screen. I REALLY wanted to go inside that world to explore and play, and spent a long time trying to decide whether or not I should break the glass so I could jump inside. I remember sitting and weighing my decision. "If I break the tv screen, my grandmother will be extremely mad, but she won't be able to catch me, because I will jump inside TV land..... of course, she could follow me and find me..." In the end, I decided it wasn't worth the risk, thank God!

Like most kids, I learned a lot of what I knew from TV, which includes a substantial amount of disinformation. One really scary episode of Family Matters led me to beleive that beepers (and pagers, since I didnt know the difference) were a dangerous commody linked to drug and gang activity. when my (already kinda scary) uncle's beeper went off at a family party, I freaked out and asked my dad if Uncle Joe was in a gang. My dad told me that he was and I thought he was some kind of Irish mobster for a long time.

When I was about 6, my friend told me that if you ran fast enough you could go through the tv and end up in that show. Well I worked up enough enery to run really fast. I ran, I jumped, I crashed, I cryed. Owwww <(o.O)>

I used to believe that you could not press buttons like "menu" or "enter" on the TV, or else it would make the TV explode or something bad. Then my sister told me she found out what the buttons did - made a little box come up. Boy was I relieved. :)
