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 used to believe that I could jump through the television and be where the people were on television.
i USED TO BELIEVE THAT IF YOU LOOKED AT THE TV SCREEN FROM THE TOP YOU COULD SEE THE PART OF THE PICTURE THAT WAS HIDDEN BY THE TV CABINET
When I was little like 4, 5, or 6 I thought that you could stick the tape in the VCR and record something that you missed on TV. So I tried doing that once when I missed my episode of Arthur. So now in the middle of a Charlie Brown Christmas on video tape is Bill Nye the Science Guy talking about desert animals.
When I was 4, I would watch Barney every morning before preschool. One day, there was some error, and I got the "Please Stand By" screen. So, I stood by the TV for about 15 minutes before my mom told me I wasn't really supposed to stand by the TV.
As a very young child I got the idea that someone named Edward was a big honcho in the world of television. In fact, I thought he had most all of TV programming named for him. That was because I heard the announcement on TV frequently that I thought was saying "This is the CBS Television Edward". Of course, I eventually learned that they were saying "network", not "Edward".
i used to think that when you turned off the television is paused like a tape. so everyday i would come home from school at 3 and watch ghostbusters. my mom would make me a sammitch or something and i would come back and be very discontented at the fact that someone had turned the tv back on.
When i was a kid, i thought that the tv changed channels by dark magic.
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 think that there were mice in the TV that controled it, and when my brother would pause his game to Eat go to the bathroom Ect. the mice would says, "Man this kids takin' forever."
i used to genuinely think that black and white televisions would show old tv shows
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.)
