When I was little I used to think that the programmes I watched on telly were just seen by me and my family. I was realy surprised when I heard someone at school ask if anyone had seen the same thing I'd watched the night before

I used to believe that if you were watching a cartoon on TV, that it was okay to turn it off if you had to go out with your mum or something, because when you got home later, you could just turn the TV on and the cartoon would continue from where you left it before! (This was long before video recorders were invented!)

One time I told my cousin that people could come out of tv's, and the only way to send them back was if I used my wand on them (it was a stick). So for years, she was scared of watching tv unless I was there.

When I was little I came home from primary school (I'm in Scotland by the way) and I asked saw my dad watching a programme that had been on the night before. Not realising that this had been recorded on a video I asked some time later if he could rewind the TV for me too, so I could watch my favourite childrens show! When my dad told me that you couldn't rewind telly I couldn't understand how people could live without this highly important feature I believed televisions had!

I used to believe that television was a portal to another location/world. I believed that if I broke the glass on the TV, I could actually jump into whatever was on television and that's where I'd be. I think it came from watching the Alice in Wonderland TV Special from the 80's. She could look through the mirror and there would be that whole other world. Good thing I never found a world good enough that justified breaking the TV!

When I was really little (3 or 4) I was a big fan of YTV, where sometimes they would take in kids pictures and show them to everyone. I really wanted to draw a picture for them, so every day I colored my heart out, and every day I put the pictures in the gap between the TV and the counter. I thought that this was their post office box (as surely they couldn't go to our post office, being inside the tv and all). One day I found a stack of my pictures in my grampapa's cupboard. I was heartbroken. I thought YTV didn't like my pictures. My grampapa explained that YTV thought they were too good to stay in TV land, so they were sent back for real people to see. I believed him until I was 8.

~YTV is a childrens TV station based in Toronto.

When I was five years old and younger, I thought that the people on TV were related to me. I had a difficult time at that age telling dreams and TV from reality. I thought Ricky Ricardo, Danny Thomas, Andy Griffith, and Tennesee Ernie Ford were my uncles. I still have clear memories of them visiting at my house, although that never happened. I wondered why Fred Flintstone never came around. I wondered why Jack Parr always made me sleepy. I thought he was magic or something, but now I realize he was on late at night when I was sleepy.

I thought my mom was very special when she could predict commercial breaks on TV, only later did I realise that she would spot the tiny white square would appear in the top right corner of the screen when a break was due

I used to believe that everytime i put my grease video in the VCR, it sent a message to someone who had to round up the whole cast and they performed the film live! I always wondered how on earth they never got their lines wrong!!

For the longest time, I always thought that Catwoman was Batman's girlfriend, as they both wore black and a matching mask with black pointed ears.

Like all other youngsters I loved to sit in front of the tv all day. My sister always said if I watch too much my brain would turn green

Okay, you need to follow this one kinda close: When my sister was about 22, she and three other girls decided to move in together into an apartment. Well, one girl said she had a couch they could use. Another said she had a breakfast table. The other girl said they could use her microwave. My sister chimed in, "I'll bring my TV, it has cable."

Me and my sister use to believe if we walked in front of a clicker when it was being used to change the channel we would be sucked into whatever program was on at that time. We ducked under the clicker everytime we walked past the tv until we were about 12.

I use to believe that some shows on tv the characters where actually puppets and people were behind my tv acting out the scences with their puppets.
Needless to say I wasn't the brightest child.
