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 '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::

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'.

When I was younger, (up to when I was about 7 years old), I believed that the salemen/women that come to your door were asking you to become an actor. I had no idea you had to audition or anything. I was always hoping for a spot on Barney or be a voice on Arthur, and I was mad at my mom for telling the people, "We're not interested."

Around the age of the 8 or 9 I noticed that Barbara Eden in the "I Dream of Jeannie" repeats was pretty darn sexy. I was convinced that a) this was just an accident of the production rather than intentional and b) I was the ONLY PERSON WHO NOTICED THIS. I believed that for 6 years.

I used to believe that actors would volunteer to die whenever I saw someone get shot in a scene. In fact I remember that it was a scene from TJ Hooker movie.

When I was little, there was a show that my father watched which seemed like all the time called "Dinosaurs" about a robot/costume -like dino family who led human lives in the Stone Ages. They kinda were like the Simpsons too. Anyways there was this one episode where Senclaire, (the father dinosaur) couldn't wait to get rid of his rude, pain-in-the-ass, aging mother-in-law. In the show, it was the custom to throw the elderly into a deep, deep hole just before death. They even demonstrated this in a little clip with a poor dino being thrown into the pit, screaming at the top of their aging lungs. After viewing the clip, Sencliare and his boss laughed. Senclaire's son asked him if his grandmother should find her way out of the pit, and an eager Senclaire scoffed "Once you're in, you're in." And this on account scared me to no end. (Im clausterphobic by the way.)

Well, needless to say, I was TERRIFIED of being thrown into a deep dark pit with already rotting bodies whom had met the same ordeal before me. And i believed humans in real life did this to their poor elderly. I remember crying for my grandpa, and ultimately dreading the day I would meet my fate.

I would tell everyone I never wanted to get old. No one does, but my real reason was so I could escape being chucked into this so-called pit. At one point my greatest mission in life was to find and cover up the pit.
I remember crying to my mother, asking would they force me to attend Grandpa's "pit" ceremony when his time came. Naturally, she was very confused.

It never really did occur to me that we actually "bury" our dead. And to this day, whenever we pass a cliff or a hole, my brothers oh-so graciously remind me.

When I was a kid, I used to think that the girl on "Adventures In Wonderland" really did go through a real mirror to get to Adverture Land.

When I was 5, I was terrified of pro wrestlers. After watching a wrestling show with my dad, I thought that as soon as I went to bed, a guy with a black and white painted face and oversized muscles was going to come in and hit me with a chair.

June 5/06: I hope this belief isn't regarded as tasteless, but the TV sitcom MARRIED... WITH CHILDREN premiered in 1987 when I was 8, and being a child I always confused Al Bundy, the fictional sitcom character, with real-life serial killer Ted Bundy!

At one point in my youth "That Girl" with Marlo Thomas was on TV right next to Batman. I was a huge Batman fan and for some reason thought Thomas' show was "Bat Girl." I watched that show for what felt like years, waiting for her to turn into Bat Girl.

There used to be a channel called TechTV. On it, they had a show called "The Screen Savers". I used to think that it was a show where they showed Screen Savers which are those little videos that play when you walk away from your computer. As soon as I watched it I realized it was a show about computers.

Way back in the 1950's there was a crime drama called "The Naked City". When my mother was a child, she heard about it when she was young and she thought it was about a city FULL of naked people. She got a big suprise when she first saw it.

I used to think that the TV show "Law & Order" was "Lawn Order" Until I was about 8, I never thought the TV show had anything to do with crime, but instead, i spent 8 years thinking it was about mowing lawns in a special order.
