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.
I used to believe you could go into the back of the TV & pull the people out
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.
I used to believe that when you could here people laughing during a sitcom ( a live TV audience0 that the laughs were coming from little people inside the television.
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.
I used to believe that at the end of each day all of the TV shows on a particular channel would rewind on air, like a video.
I used to belive that when a news caster greated the viewers with a "Hello" they were talking to me through the television. I always anwsered back "Hi!"
I used to beleive that if I broke open the T.V. I would be able to climb inside my favorite shows.
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 about 4 i used to think that when the tv was on their was actors standing behind of it acting and when it was turned off i used to think that the actors was takin a break. so i used to check behind my tv
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 i wa in 7th grade (sadly enough) the T.V in my classroom the t.v would turn on and off for no apperent reason, but all the students in my class would clap there hands, i thoguht the t.v worked like the clapper,so when the t.v went off, i clapped my hands really loud 2 times, but the t.v wouldnt turn back on....
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.
