My girlfriend believed that the television canned laughter came from other people watching in their homes. Whenever the laughter started she would run up to the tv and laugh into the speakers as loud as she could. Hoping everyone would hear her

When I asked my dad how the tv guide stays up-to-date on current tv shows, he told me that they change it every week. For the longest time after that, I believed a man sneaked into our house every week at night to re-write the tv guide. He had super sensitive hearing, so you couldn't sneak up on him while he was writing it, because he'd hear you and run away. Instead, I hid the tv guide in my room and pretended to be asleep, hoping to catch him coming in to re-write the guide.

When I was 6 years old I was watching my favorite cartoon show, when we all had to leave to go out to dinner.
I imagined that by turning off the T.V.
I could stop the show from continuing and when I returned, I could turn the T.V. back on and pick up the show right where it left off.
Kinda of like the home movies my dad would make us watch.
I remember being very angry when I discovered that my cartoon was over and I wanted to know who turned on the T.V.
and watched it all up while we had been gone.

When I was four or five years old, I remember watching an afternoon movie on channel 5. There was an interuption in the show and suddenly an announcer's voice boomed: "we are experiencing technical difficulties, please stand by." My brother and I immediately stood to the either side of the tv until the show returned.

When I was little, I believed that when you watched a movie, the actors were really acting it out somewhere and when you rewinded it without pushing stop first, they had to do the whole thing backwards. But if you pushed stop before you rewound, they wouldn't have to do it backwards.

When I was about 3 I believed that I could talk to whoever was on the TV by talking into the speakers. When they didn't respond i figured it was because he wanted to get on with his job. Then my mum told why I couldn't talk to him. I was majorly bummed.

For my 4th birthday my mum said I could have a party and I could invite anyone I wanted. The only person I wanted to come to my party was Robert Key, who was the ITN lunchtime news reader at the time. Apparently I threw a tantrum when told he wouldn't be able to attend. (We lived in a small town in Yorkshire at the time).

I used to believe that when the bad guy characters on a TV show had a gunfight that they actually were shot and then just went to the hospital to get better (you would see them week after week on different shows getting shot and then appearing on another show.)

When i was about 6 or 7 in the 70's, my dad was a TV engineer so we were the first on our street to get a video recorder(old clunky V2000 if anyone remembers them). The instructional video for recording in advance showed a hand coming out of the VCR and pressing the 'record' button. Dad told me this was real but only worked if you were out of the house and being a gullible kid unused to technology i believed him! I used to set the video, go out and try and sneak a peek through the window to spot the phantom hand!

I always thought that Bill Cosby and Bing Crosby were the same person, or, more accurately, if someone said 'Bing Crosby' I assumed they meant 'Bill Cosby', but didn't know how to pronounce it properly.

When I was young, I used to believe TV works like a tape recorder. When I'm in a hurry and any of my favorite programs are being aired, I used to switch off TV and tell everybody in home not to switch it on until I come back. When I return and saw different program, I used to get angry with my family members saying that they switched it on in between.

I used to think that Dana Carvey was a woman. I had only heard the name Dana as a woman's name, and the first time I saw Dana Carvey was in a Wayne's World commercial (as the long-haired Garth), so I assumed that he was a woman. I held this believe for at least 3 years, until I saw the "Best of Dana Carvey" episode of SNL.

I used to believe that if I were to break the TV screen I could go to whatever was on the TV at the time. It took a lot of restraint not to take a brick to the TV when the Gummi Bears were on.
