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.

This one's really stupid, especially as I wasn't so much a kid as a guy in my late-teens at the time, but when satellite tv first came out, I thought the presenters were actually on board a space station/satellite and were recording the programmes from up there...

I used to think that the people you see on TV weren't real and existed within the TV. I was really confused when my dad took me to a football game and I saw the players, then even more confused to see them on the telly too later that night when they showed the highlights.

I used to believe as a child that the Jerry's Kids Muscular Dystrophy Association Annual Fund Raiser on television was literally for Jerry's kids. I couldn't figure out why Jerry Lewis kept having children if he knew they'd all be severely handicapped and have a debilitating disease.

I was raised in a catholic family and started at a catholic school. I knew I went to a catholic school and other people went to a public school. One day I was watching a TV and the channel was called "NJN - Public TV" I turned it right away thinking that it would teach me things that were incorrect (i thought public and catholic schools taught things differently)!!!

When I was let's say 5 I thought if the television screen broke, then everything you had seen on television like scary movies, cartoons, etc. would come out from the television into your house!

In Czech Rep. there is a cartoon every day at seven. It has the same tune since it has been started X years ago.A voice there says "Good night" in the end. As a little girl I used to believe that the boy who is saying this, had to go to TV-studio, wait till the cartoon is over and then say "Goog Night". "Poor boy" i thought.

When I was about 7 years old, our television set broke. My Mother decided that she would drive over and borrow my Grandmother's set, since said Grandmother was on vacation and obviously wouldn't be using it. I didn't see the point in this, since my Grandma's set was very old and subsequently we could only watch old shows on it, not the new ones I wanted to see.

One time when mom had dinner ready and she said to turn the TV off and come to the table, I remember thinking the TV would pause and I could come back to it later. (Way before Tivo!)

I thought that the news anchors on tv were actors, even though the news was real. It made sense, since people on tv and in the movies had real names and screen names.

I always thought there was a magic way to step into the television from behind, but could never account for the shrinkage in size I noticed with most of the characters. It puzzled me for so long where that entrance was too, seing as how after looking behind the tv i could see no remote openings.
