when I was a kid, I had seen Morgan Freeman on the American television
show for kids, the Electric Company. He was dressed up as Dracula, which
scared me a lot. I used to think that when the lights were out upstairs, he
was up there waiting for me at the top of the steps. So, basically, as a kid,
nothing scared me worse than Morgan Freeman. I think that's funny.

In the 50's when we got our first television, I believed all the really pretty women were'nt real but robots or dolls because no one could be that pretty and perfect.

I used to believe that newsanchors always told the truth, kind of a legal requirement for being on TV. Then one day in the early 70s, when I was about 10, I saw an interview with Mohammed Ali. An hour or so later, Walter Chronkite paraphrased Ali completely to the opposite of what I had actually heard. I now believe one should never trust journalists.

I used to believe (because my dad told me) that at night he would take all of the little people out of the TV, I used to sneak down to have a luck, but he told me that they would only be safe to come out when I was in bed.

My dad purchased our first t.v. in 1948 and he was watching Peggy Lee I stood in front of the set and he yelled for me to get out of the way. Little did he know that i thought i could look down the front of her lowcut dress and get a free peek.

My father told me that the people on TV actually worked at the top of the TV towers. I used to worry about them when it was a windy day, thinking they are all going to fall off of the tower.

I use to believe (about 30 years ago) that when you turned the television off, the actors would all go and sit down somewhere inside the TV, until you turned it back on. Partly because it seemed like the Brady Bunch or cartoons were always on. Or maybe that's all my parents would allow me to watch.

Until I was 9, I thought shows that came on the tv were being performed at that very time. Live. So...I also thought all the bands were at the radio station.

I use to think that if I sang the Animanicas theme loud enough Yakko Wakko and Dot (or people in costumes) would come over to my house and eat dinner.

top belief!

when i was 4 i thought that when you shut the tv off, your program would stop right there where you left it, so you could come back later and continue...

but then my whole world was shattered the day my mom and i went to the store in the middle of Batman and then i came home to find the evening news running instead.

i still hate the evening news.

I used to believe that you were not supposed to laugh out loud at TV sitcoms. I think because no one laughed when there was a laugh track.

My father told me that a local TV transmitter tower was where space rockets were launched from. For years I watched the tower to see the next moon launch.

I used to believe that all tv shows were live and that repeats were the actors/actresses doing a very good job.

I used to think that when actors died on telly, they really died. But since I still got the concept of actors, I figured that the people who made the movies just gave the actors everything they wanted for a week, on the condition that they could kill them on film at the end.

When I found out years later that this formed the basis for snuff films, I was outraged that they'd stolen my idea.

In the U.S., televion programs are frequently aired an hour early in the Central time zone, presumably so that they may be simulcast to the east coast and the midwest. I assumed that this practice extended: when a commercial announced a show airing at "8, 7 Central", I assumed that we on the west coast would get it at 5 o'clock.

My parents never subscribed to cable, and it took me a while to figure out what it was. First I thought my mother was just mean becuase she whouldn't let me watch cable like my grandmother did. Once I figured out that we didn't get the channels, I thought it was something special that you had to live in the city to get (since I lived in the country and all my friends in town had cable). I had to be six or seven before I figured out you had to pay to get more than a couple of channels.

I had a friend who believed that television companies could see into the future because they would show previews of upcoming shows.

I believed that TV shows continued on after we watched them. I thought we only got to see an hour of their lives.

I was sure that all television stopped broadcasting when I turned off our set. I was extremely egotistical, evidently.
