i Used to believe that all adult shows [even adult cartoons] were NOT supposed to be funny. They were supposed to be very serious. I knew that The Simpsons was an adult show, because my mom never let me watch it before. So then one day, she did. It was the first show i had seen that didn't have a laughtrack. i Also didn't understand any of the jokes so i thought it was very serious.
Also, i thought Beavis and Butthead were real, serious names. I had never seen the show, so i thought it was like Regis and Kelly or something! [which i also had never seen]
My father believed that there was only one person playing Michelle Tanner. There was no way in getting him to believe otherwise ... he actually believed the name of the actor playing Michelle Tanner was "May Kate Ashley Olsen" ... what ever order their names appeared in on screen ... I think he finially was convinced it was twins playing the role once people began to see both of them ... but I don't know ... I still think he believes it was just one person ... and I don't want to get in an arguement over it - again ...
I used to think the Show "Law and Order" was a show about someone called Laura Norder! I used to think that Law and Order SVU was "Laura Norder - She's very ugly" When my mum had some friends over she said to me. "Time to go to bed now, we're watching Law and Order". "Are you watching the ugly one?" I asked. They all laughed and I was asked to explain myself. To this day whenever we watch Law and Order, Someone always asks if we are watching the ugly one.
My mum used to call those all-in-one sleep suits "wombles" in some bizarre attempt to get me, my brother and my sister to wear them. ("The wombles" was a big tv show for kids at the time). I never realised that there was any other name for them until the tender age of 22 when I called one a womble infront of a large group of friends... Seven years later, I still haven't heard the end of it
When I was little, I remember watching Scooby-Doo reruns and hearing the laugh track. I thought those were people actually watching the show as I was, and I would always laugh loudly and out of place for the other people to hear.
I remember when "That 70's Show" was going into it's 10th year. I seriously thought the name would change to "That 80's Show".
I used to believe that when a movie or programme ended on TV and the credits came up, that it was just time for parents to put their kids to bed and then go on watching!
When I heard someone anounce their telephone number on a TV show, (say Dragnet, or Perry Mason, etc.) I thought that you could call that number and converse with that character while he's on that program.
I thought that when you pressed the hazzard button in the car, the dukes of hazzard would come and save you.
I used to believe that shows like Little House on the Prairie and Dr. Quinn: Medicine Woman were actually filmed back in the times the shows were based in.
I was about 5 or 6 at the time. We used to have a gabage can JUST like the one Oscar the Grouch has in our basement. I used to tell my little friends that came over not be too loud or Oscar would come out and yell at us! They would always believe me!
This is OLD school -- I was about 4 or 5. Remember the little window garden that Ernie (from Sesame Street) used to have? In his garden lived a tiny little bug town. He would talk with them and watch them. Well, I was amazed by this, so every garden I saw I would check for the little bug friends like Ernie had. I remember being dissapointed when I wouldn't find them:(
When i was 5 I watched 'Puzzle Place' that show with all the puppets. I really did think everytime they did the opening music, the puppet, Ben was looking right at me, i used to have a huge crush.
Even told my parents, "When i'm older, i am going to New York to Marry Ben!"
Imagine how i felt when my parents told me, he was only a puppet.
Once while watching Little House on the Prarie, I asked my mom if Mary was Charles' daughter. She jokingly said "No, he just thinks she is." I still don't consider Mary a true "Ingalls" girl!
I used to believe that the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle were real and that I should fear ninja's breaking into our home.
I used to believe that 'canned' laughter (from sitcom tracks and the like) actually came from a can- that you opened a giant tuna can with speakers inside, and you could hear the audience laughing in front of their TVs. This was waaaaay past the era of sitcoms... and I believed it until about 3 years ago. ::BLUSH::
i used to believe that the government gave everyone in the country video cameras just so that they could put people having accidents on 'you've Been Framed'.
When i was younger, I used to believe that Doctor Who was real, and I was a timelady.
I also used to believe if i was bad the Daleks would come and exterminate me, so i was always good!
I use to believe Mark Fowler from eastenders was my dad because he had the same name as my dad and my realy dad didn't live with. I thought he didn't live with me because he was too busy on the fruit and veg stool in walford!
In England we have a tv programme called ' You've been Framed' where you can send in video clips of people having accidents and so on. I used to believe that the government gave a free video camera to everyone just so they could send clips in to You,ve Been Framed'.
