I used to believe if I looked through the small ventilation slots in the back of our tv, then anyone in front of the tv would see me on the screen.
One of my favorite TV shows was about a giant ball covered in lights that would be lowered onto the roof of a building while people below celebrated.
Every night I would ask my parents to let me stay up to watch it but usually they made me to to bed at 9:00, so I only got to see it perhaps once a year.
It wasn't until I was six that I figured out that the "ball dropping show" only came on once a year on New Year's Eve, explaining why I was allowed up until midnight to see it.
i used to believe that in films ,when the scene changed,the people who were in the previous scene would freeze until it was their time to talk again
When I was little, I saw a music video ("If this is it" by Huey Lewis and the News) in which members of the band had been buried up to their chins in sand and were singing. It scared the living daylights out of me because I seriously thought I was seeing severed heads singing on the beach!
I used to believe that all the shows on TV were happening live at the time I was watching them, so when my bed time came, I would make the case that the kids on TV didn't have to go to bed yet, so why do I have to?
I used to believe that if my Dad took a picture of me stood next to the TV when Going Live was on, it would look like I had really met Sarah Greene. We still have the poloroid!
I was a huge Courage The Cowardly Dog fan at the age of eight until the age of ten. And there's this one episode with this creepy mummy king giving the people three plagues. I had no problems with it at first.
That was until my friend at school said "My brother is afraid that guy's gonna show up in our bathtub."
After that, for a while *I* was afraid the creepy mummy king plague dude was going to show up in *my* bathtub. Hahaha. Now I'm into Courage again 'cause my guardian and I like to watch it together. CREEPY MUMMY KINGS ARE YET TO SHOW UP IN MY BATHTUB, LULZ.
I was wondering how are all those people going inside the TV .. I wanted to go in there too and i thought there is a little door on the back of the TV and that i have to find the cookie for becoming smaller (the one from alice in wonderland) so i can get inside.
Our son thought if you turned off the TV it would save your place like a bookmark in a book. (He was 5 before he remembers seeing TV, we lived in Europe)
I Used to believe that When you watched TV they were actually taping it at that time and it was Live so i watched 2 movies that had the Same Character in it and i was like "Dad How did that actor get into two places at once?"
I used to believe that the cool aid man was evil and he'd break through my wall and get me.
I thought if you turned the T.V. off while a person was on screen, they would die!
I used to wait for ages for a scene without people in to turn it off...
while watching movies when the people in their didn't know who the culprit was but we knew it. I thought I could impress them by going inside the television and telling them who the culprit is..
My dad bought a new tv when i was like 5-6.. and i was amazed to see both tvs played the same thing.. I used to run up and down to check if it was any different.. and as it played the same thing.. i was convinced that they were running around like me to participate in two different televisions.. :P
I used to believe that I wouldn't be able to be famous because my ex-boyfriends would go on television and talk about our relationship.
Until I was about 14 and studied Geography in school, I was convinced that the weather lady on the TV was saying "in the eyes of our chart" instead of "on the isobar chart"...
I remember thinking that when you heard the censors who laugh on sitcoms, it was actually the laughter of the other people in the world watching the same show at the same time. So, whenever no one in my family was in earshot, I would laugh in really strange ways point blank into the TV's speakers so the whoever was watching would be entertained.
I had no clue what re-runs were. I thought that all lvie action shows were shot live in the studio, and I was shocked that they actually recorded them and showed them later.
i thought that all of the shows on tv where played live even when someone died. sad, i no.
As a young child I believed that actors didn't look anything like the characters they portrayed. They were all wearing elaborate rubber masks (think Mission Impossible) designed to make them look like the writers' imaginings of their characters.
