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.

When I was 4-5, during the waning years of the Reagan administration, I was convinced that the President delivered the CBS Evening News every night. It was not until President Bush I was inaugurated that I realized that Dan Rather and Ronald Reagan were, in fact, different people.

As a child I often wondered how the actors were able to replay and re-enact the same scenes identically. This was before I understood the concept of RERUNS.

I can't decide what category this should go in. When I was small, I had bizarre fever dreams. Mostly I knew they were dreams, such as the one I had where Abraham Lincoln came into my bedroom (how tall!), removed his hat politely, and sat down on the edge of my bed, to give me silent moral support. But I also had what was probably more of an hallucination. When I had a very high fever I used to turn the TV to a non-channel (oh yes! We had those in the 70's!!), where there was nothing but static. Because, in the "snow," I saw chickens. They were just running around, eating corn, pecking in the dirt, etc., and I found this comforting. I called it the "chicken channel," and my mom humored me in this, although it must have driven her insane, because for some reason I also insisted on having the sound turned up.

I used to believe that if I sat behind the tv set, my family could see me on the screen.

If there was something scary on TV and the lights were off, I would keep my feet up on the chair as I thought crocodiles would grab them. Even though what was on TV had nothing to do with crocs whatsoever

When I was watching TV back when I was 7 or so, I used to believe that all the clapping in the shows were from people at home, so I would clap as loud as I could so I could hear myself on TV.

When I was about 7 or 8 years old my mom told me that if i break the TV screen it would suck me into a different world and she told me she knew someone who got sucked it. I Guess she told me to scare me out of breaking it.

I used to believe that if the TV broke, all of the characters would come out, even in cartoons. I always was very very careful with the TV screen, especially during the Lion King. I was terrified of Scar, and the thought of him coming into my living room was horrifying! I think this belief stopped when our TV actually did break and no-one came out..

When I was small my older brother would take one of the television remotes and leave the other one by me. He would then "use his psycic powers" to make the channel change. It never occured to me that he would use the other one.....took me years to figure that out......

I used to believe that when I was watching sesame street that if I turned it off in the middle of the program and came back a while later and turned it on, it would still be there. That never did work.

When I first heard the expression "No news is good news" I took it literally and whilst watching tv one day my mom asked me what I was watching and I answered 'good news' thinking that because I wasn't watching the news then I must've been watching good news!

I used to think that when I turned the TV off everything on the other side would just stop and wouldn't continue until i turned the TV on again! I used to get quite confused when I turned it on after dinner and something different was on!

When I was about 3 or 4, we had a little black and white tv. There was a little whole in the screen and I thought I could go inside the tv and into whatever program I was watching.

when i was little, when ever i watched a video over and over, it was tireing out the actors/cartoons. so i decided to give them a break every now and then,this was my theory on why the video was hot after use.

i wont tell you!
