When I used to watch tv I believed that the old movies that were in black and white were showing that the world was in black and white in the early 1900s.

I used to believe that when there was a kiss on TV or in a movie, that one person was kissing above the other person's lips and the other person was kissing below the other person's lips. I never thought they were actually kissing each other on the lips.

When i was little the OJ Simpson trial was all they talked about on the news. I used to think OJ Simpson was somehow involved in the orange juice industry and when my parents would pour a glass of OJ I thought they were buying his juice and the news only talked about him so much because they wanted people to buy his juice and his juice company was having trouble.

I thought that actors and actresses had to have the same name as the character they were playing. I also thought that cartoon characters were real people who looked exactly as they do in the show, so I wondered how they found live people in all the different animation styles!

I used to think the commercials on when i was a kid about alien registration were about real space aliens. I did not figure out they were about declaring your immigration status until i was 12 or 13 !

When I was six my mom and I were watching a movie where the lead character might die. My mom said, "Don't worry, he won't die because he's the star of the movie and they never kill the star." I really thought that actors get killed in real life when their character is killed off. I tried to reason with myself about why they would want to be in a movie if they were going to die. I figured it was just for the money for their family.

I used to believe that when you were watching T.V.
when you changed the channel what ever was going on the channel you used to be watching froze. I know better now.

I thought that "To be announced" was the actual name of a show. When scrolling through the channel listings, it would always say "To be announced" by a lot of the news channels so I just assumed it was news show.

I used to believe the Snuggle bear was real and wanted him to visit me, just like he did the kids on TV. I used to beg my Dad to buy Snuggle just so I'd get a visit from the Snuggle bear. Alas, he never bought it, and I never got a visit from my fun, cuddly pal. I used to get so upset that Dad was taking away my chance at meeting the Snuggle bear in real life!

I use to believe that in movies or TV shows when a character died as a result of a car accident, shooting, falling... whatever that the stunt people working on the show ACTUALLY died. I kept trying to figure out how much money their families must be getting paid so that the stunt person can DIE on this TV show/movie...

I used to believe that people really got killed in movies and on television. I didn't understand why they would give up their lives for the sake of entertainment.

When i was little my family had a big old tv. The color on the tv used to go in and out all the time, well one day my little brother who must have been around 5 at the time asked me why this kept happening and since i know everything i told him the the stratocumulonimbus clouds in the sky sucked all the color out of the tv. he believed me for years..then we got a new tv and it no longer happened

when i was little i was terrified of Stick Stickly and my older cousin took advantage of this and said Stick would come to my house at night in a little pink car and eat my brains. I was dumb enough to believe it

My mom told me that when she was little, she thought that the people in black and white movies/tv shows were actually colored like that (black and white).

When I was little, I had a neighbour who owned two VCRs so she could make... erm... "archival back-ups" of her video collection (and the video store's as well). I thought that if you played a different movie in each one, the characters from both would interract on screen like some sort of weird hybrid film.

When I was about 6 and would watch a sitcom, I thought the laugh track was other people sitting in front of their TVs watching the show, and that they could hear us. For the life of me, I couldn't figure out how they were otherwise so quiet.

I never liked kids TV shows, so I watched grown up TV on grown up channels. During commercials there would sometimes be movie previews and the announcer would always say "rated R" very fast, so I thought it was one word, "ratedar," and I always wondered what it meant.

I used to believe black and white TV shows were shot in color and that color had to be invented at some point.
