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 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 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 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 very young I believed that the tv show would stay right where I left it when I turned off the tv and went back to turn it on later to watch

When I was small I had several beliefs. I believed that the honey monster (the monster on the front of sugar puff boxes) would come out of the tv when the adverts were on and eat me, so i'd hide underneath the table until it was over.
I also used to pretend I was a cat called fluff.
I'd hide around the house and my mum would have to call me out by saying "fluff i have milk for you!"
Another thing i used to do was pretend to be riding when walking along with mum in parks and the like. I'd trot along and if I fell off i'd throw my ride away and sort myself out. One day my mum said "don't throw your horse away" to which i replied, "it's not a horse, it's a camel."

I was a quite odd child..
My parents allowed me to see pg-13 rated movies with them..
So whenever I had seen a movie that I had liked with an actor I had admired,
I would go home and pretend the actor was in bed with me.(doing nothing)
Just lying there with me..

I used to believe when I was young that If you were watching a program and turned off the tv the program would pause. But to my dismay after dinner my favourite tv show was over...now I waste electricity keeping the tv on.

My mum used to say that if you had your T.V on after nine the police would come and get you, so when I watched T.V I would look out for a police helecopter.

When I was young, I used to believe Santa was real but Indians were made up. I also used to believe evertime you watched a movie the people in the movie had to go and act everythnig out again, so I'd feel bad watching movies too many times and rewinding them.

i used to believe that if you fell asleep watching television you would get sucked in and disappear forever well one day my two brothers thought it was funny to make a fake tv and put in my favourite lulliby with a picture of elmo (i loved elmo and still do =) ) in the front to make the screen. well i fell asleep while trying so hard to stay awake. while i was asleep they shove me in the fake tv and since then i only watch tv at certain times!!
