As a kid, I saw an episode of The Simpsons where Mr. Burns tells Bart, "Did you know that after ten years dead bodies turn into licorice?" I thought that it was true and that I was going to turn into licorice after ten years of being dead and that I would get eaten. I thought that licorice was made from dead people.

When I was six or so, I asked Dad who Spock was, and he told me, "He's a philosopher", so I thought Spock was a real person along the lines of Socrates and Aristotle. Later around the same time, I heard Dad doing an impression of Spock addressing someone as "captain", so I thought Spock had been a Navy philosopher.

Because the teacher's name in Clifford is Mrs. Carrington, I assumed every fictional female authority figure had the last name "Carrington" by default. So I thought Vee from Chuggington's full name was "Bea (I misheard her first name) Carrington".

When I was twelve, the only exposure to the word "academy" I had was a place called the Vulcan Science Academy, from Star Trek.

So when my dad said that he and his band were going to play at "the academy", I was taken aback and thought, "So the Vulcan Science Academy is real?!".

There was a show called "Happy Days" that has the lyric "Goodbye, grey skies, hello blue" in its theme tune, so I thought you couldn't watch it on a cloudy day.

I used to think that Madame Giselle from Peppa Pig had pink blush on one cheek, and brown blush on the other. I always wondered why she used 2 different blush colours instead of just one colour. Then my mom told me that the brown part is her nose, not blush.

When I was very small there was a show called "Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea" about a submarine. What I remember most about it is that people were always falling down. I had a relative who sold carpet, and I had a talk with him about the charactors falling down all the time.I assumed that he knew all about how to install really thick carpet so the characters wouldn't get hurt when they fell.The embarrassing part was that I got confused and I thought my uncle personally provided the carpet for the show, and told the whole class for Show and Tell.The teacher called me a liar and was not happy. I was just confused.I was five years old,after all.To this day, I feel embarrassed when I think about that silly show and plushy carpets and how nasty the teacher was.

This is kind of embarrassing. My mother was a bigoted white Southerner, and when the original Star Trek came on she did not approve or let us watch it, not only because of Uhura, but because she had heard somewhere that Leonard Nimoy was from "the only tribe in Africa that has ears like that". She basically thought the ears were REAL and he was wearing " whiteface" makeup because he was black.It was absolutely idiotic and she would tell people "the truth" and embarrass me.Only after he appeared in Mission Impossible did she grudgingly admit her mistake.I think Leonard Nimoy would have been very surprised to hear that he was actually from Africa..in someone's twisted fantasy.

I used to believe that you could jump into the TV show and interact in the cartoon world, like in Channel Chasers.

When I was a kid we used to watch the TV series "Alias Smith and Jones". I was puzzled for years about why they only told you Smith's first name in the title.

I used to believe that the "maury" logo was just 3 lines instead of a letter m, since the m was usually the same color as the background and I only saw the lines in the negative space.

When puppeteer Shari Lewis died, I asked if this meant her show Lamb Chop's Play-Along would be broadcast in black and white from now on. I was assured that the stars being dead wasn't the reason old shows were in black and white.
