tvShow most recent or highest rated first. Common beliefs in this section include:
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.
this is weird, but when i was 5, i thougth there was little construction men in the TV and when i turned it off they would go to sleep.
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!!
When I was a child, I use to believe when watching a food commerical I could reach into the t.v. and grab the food-especially the ducan hines chocolate cake. I quess I was hungry.
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...
When I was young,I used to believe that if you watched colour TV,your eyes would drop out.Thanks Dad!You just didn't want the expense of renting a colour set!
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 used to believe that the play school people inside my TV would get tired if I pressed the fast foreward button too much.
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!)
When I was a young'un, I used to belive that when you got on T.V., even local T.V., you were instantly famous.
