I thought that, when an actor kissed another actor on tv, they had to get that actor's spouse to stand in for the other actor, because it was wrong to kiss anyone other than your own spouse. I think this was inspired by an episode of Mork & Mindy somehow.

i used to believe that all television was live. and that if an actor were appearing on two shows at the same time, they were running around backstage to get to their places on different sets. i was always amazed that they weren't out of breath doing this.

When I was a wee lad, 4 or 5, I realized that TV wasn't real, but I hadn't quite grasped make up and special effects. I wondered where they got a guy with pointed ears to play Spock, or a giant hairy thing to play Chewbacca, etc.

I used to believe that when an actor died or was killed in a TV show that they were really dead. I was always amazed to see that actor appear in a different show at a later date. "That can;t be the same guy, he died on that last Perry Mason episode".

I used to think that if you stood next to the television and looked into and past the edges of the screen, you would be able to see more of the picture, much like you can when looking into a mirror.

top belief!

My friend, James, use to belive that if you bought a new telly it would show programmes from the very start of television history. His theory fell apart when I asked him how both out tellies had the same program on at the same time. "Our mums must have bought them at the same time!"

tehe.

I used to believe when you turned the TV off, the program would turn off, and
when you turned it back on, it would resume from where it left off.

I watched a TV version of "Jane Eyre" when I was about 6 and it really confused me. I thought a mad woman lived in out attic for about 3 years.

I used to believe that when you wanted to watch a TV show, it would wait until you turned the TV on and only start when you were ready.

I used to believe I'd get glued to the television if I watched it too much, after what my mum said. I literally thought that someone would come up behind me and glue *me* to the television!
