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 4 or 5 I once to believed that unplugging the TV would pause the TV so I wouldn't miss my favorite TV show which happend to be Mork & Mindy.
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.
When I was 3 I used to believe everything on t.v. actually happened:)!
i was around 6 when i developed a paranoia about t.v. screens. i thought i would die instantaniously if i licked it.
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.
When i was little I asked my mum how people got onto the TV screen and my mum told me the screen was made up of lots of little dots. So I thought that the people on tv weren't real people, that they were just a lot of random dots that the tv had made.
When i was little, i always wondered where the laughing and cheering would come from when we watched a sitcom. So i believed that it was other people like me sitting at home and we could hear them laughing through our television sets. So i used to talk into the speaker on the tv and say things so that people "on the other side" could hear me.
i used to believe that if you moved to an angle at the tele you could see round the corner of the picture
i used to think that when i turned on the tv, the actors would have to wake up and act just as long as my tv was on. when it was off, they did whatever.
Ah, i remember the days when my mum used to say my eyes would go square shaped if i kept watching t.v as much as i did.
I used to believe that if you broke open the TV and climbed inside you would be transported to the place that was being shown on the TV at the time.
i used to believe that if you pressed the right buttons on the remote, that you could be zapped into the televison, and that you could take whatever you wanted from the people and bring it back with you. i always wanted to be zapped into full house. or the toy's r us commercials, anything interesting to me.
I used to think that if you got up real close to the YV and looked up, down or to the side you would be able to see "around the corner" of the screen to see what was going on. I remember it took me several tries to realize this was not the case...:-)
I used to think that the people on the t.v had to jump in the TV and then jump out when no one was watching...accually one time i tried to jump in the T.V. and had to get 6 stitches.
I used to believe that the television paused when I turned it off. However, one day, I swore to myself to test this, and after pre-school that day, much to my dismay, a different show was on when I turned the televison on. Why wasn't TIVO invented earlier!
My father had (and he still does) a huge collection a videos, that he recorded himself and labelled very carefully with those he found and cut in those video magazines. And he would keep the old ones, in case he could use them again... Well, as a very little kid, I thought that the movie on the video depended on the label on the box! so one day, I changed the label of one the videos, excpecting to get my favourite musical on.... it didn't and I cried of disapointment, while my mother was looking at me, appaled to have akid obsessed with videos
when i was little i thought that everything that happened on tv was live and in movies and if u rewound it they had to do it again
