I used to believe that when we left a room the TV set started to speak about other things
I used to think if you left your tv on at night that the people or cartoons would come out. One night I stayed up to see if I was right. I was mad that they were still on the screen.
When I was a child, my Dad placed a huge stuffed bear next to the TV. At least it was huge to me at the time.
Dad told me that if I touched the TV the bear would get me, and if my Dad couldn't find me then he would know what really happened when he wasn't looking.
I watched more bear than TV for the longest while.
Then came the remote control. ;-)
I used to believe that everything that was on t.v was on a videp tape and when we weren't looking a man put the video in our VCR.
When i was little i would watch a show where you would jump into the picture.
So when i finished watching the show i would pick a picture that was exciting to me and i kept on trying to jump into it.
i used to think that if you opened up the back of the telly you`d go into a whole new world
When I was about 3, I guess my ears were ringing one day, because it sounded like the high pitched whine of a TV. I told my mom that it felt like we were on TV.
I used to think that when some one lowered the volume on a tevelvision set,the T.V. would expolde in order to let the sound out.
When i was younger and i used to watch casper the cartoon, i felt bad that everyone always ran away from him since he was a ghost..so i used to go up to the speaker and scream casper dont cry ill be your friend.and i got mad cuz he wouldnt talk to me.and the one time i yelled so loud into the speaker so he could hear me and i messed up the speaker..no one knows what happened..
When I was younger I used to think that at 2:00 in the morning the power company would shut off all of the tv's in the world because i thought no one in the world would be up at that time.
i used to believe that when u watched tv there were little people acting it out
One time I was in bed with my parents watching "Star Wars." It got to the best part and then the tv turned off. I got really mad about this and asked my parents about it...they said that the tv's bedtime is 9:00 and it turned off to go to sleep. For years I would turn off the tv right before 9:00 so that the tv could get some rest. It took me forever to realize my parents had just used the remote...duh!
When I was like 5 I thought that TV shows with real people(like Friends) were just really good animations.
I've always loved the rain. Even as a child, I loved the rain scenes on TV. I was sorely disappointed with the arse whoopin' I got when my imagination led me to believe that pouring a glass of water on the TV would induce the greatest rain scene ever.
Whenever my sister and I would fight, my dad would point the TV remote as us and say if we didn't shut up, he would push the mute button and we would never be able to talk again.
I used to think that the people on t.v were just being tapes unaware of it - and that everyone in the world was being taped so I acted all proper all the time b/c I thought there were hidden cameras everywhere!
I used to believe that if you talked to the characters on tv, they would hear you and would talk back to you
When I was little I once saw a programme about how they made cartoons. It was all about the painstakingly long hours they put into drawing each individual clip of the cartoon. Later on when I watched Neighbours I was amazed how realistic all the characters looked and thought that all the people on it were drawn. I thought all programmes didn't have real people and everything was drawn. I think it took me a few years until I learnt different.
When I was a kid of 5 or 6 I thought that the people performing on TV were performing live AND they were just waiting for me to turn the TV off so they could take a break.
At the end of those shows on PBS where the thing comes up that says "This show is sponsored in part by viewers like you" or something to that level, I thought they were referring specifically to me and would often sit there wondering what I had done to help PBS with their show. I started worrying about it and kept bothering my parents about it. This continued until I was about 7.
