When I was young I never used to understand why the couple in Blind Date would go off and come back five minutes later having been on holiday looking completely different- sometimes with different hair colour or skin colour... (for those who don't watch the show of course it turned out they'd disappear behind the doors and the couple who were sent off the week before would come back and tell everyone how they got on!!!)
My parents never had a television, but occasionally I would go to my Grandparent's house and watch it there.
My Grandmother's favourite show was M*A*S*H, so that was the only thing we watched.
Until I was 8, I though the only thing on telly was Hawkeye, Radar and Hoolahan...
I used to watch I Dream of Jeanie and wonder how they got her hair to do that! I thought she must have tons of hair to do a ponytail with a braid wrapped around it!
I don't know why the concept of wigs and hair pieces was so difficult for me.
I used to believe that the TV show Leave it to Beaver took place in modern day instead of years ago. I couldn't understand why they wore such goofy clothes. And if the family lived in such a huge house, why did the two brothers share a bedroom? And why were they so afraid of their father? He didn't look scary to me, and he never yelled at them.
My parents used to watch the show "Dallas" and I watched it with them when I was bored. And due to the accents people have here, they hardly ever pronounce the "R" in anything, so I thought the character "Bobby" (or however his name is spelt) in Dallas was called Barbie.
I believed that the costumes on the original Star Trek had shortened pants because there was a cloth shortage in the 1960s.
When I was a kid my Grandpa and I would watch "The Lawrence Welk Show" on public television every Saturday night. For some reason, I thought the people who sang on that show just showed up there off of the street and were put on the show. I told everyone that I was going to go on that show when I "grew up".
when i was little i used to watch sesame street as everyone did but i was petrified of the cookie monster and big bird so much so that i would never let any doors or windows be unlocked in the whole house out of fear, needless to say it my parents got pretty annoyed with me when the tempreature was 40 degrees and i demanded all the windows to be closed.
Airwolf: I believed there really was a guy with a dog that looked up women's skirts flying a top-secret combat copter at mach-1 to protect us from the badguys.
The Dukes of Hazzard: I believed that an orange '69 Dodge Charger with a Rebel flag and "01" on the doors could fly and that cop cars were built to fall apart easily. I also believed that a scroungy mechanic could fix anything.
The A-Team: I believed that a little insanity could actually bend the rules of reality and make imaginary friend real (hey, it worked for Murdock!).
Knight Rider: That computers could fit inside cars and make them drive themselves, that black cars can fly, and that black paint can make anything bulletproof.
You Can't Do That On Television: I believed that it wasn't uncommon for parents to put their kids back in diapers (this was a fear exploited by my parents to ensure that I behaved, so's I wouldn't be made to wear diapers again).
I realy thought everyone on seasame street was really married and lived there. It was a place I wanted to move to and marry Bob.
I lived in Peru, South America, until I was 4 years old. Until that time I watched North American TV shows dubbed into Spanish. I always thought it was so strange that the people on TV could talk one way and move their lips a different way. I tried doing it...never could.
When I was little, I used to believe that Mr. Rogers was actually a monster and he would eat you if you weren't his neighbor. I always got freaked out because I didn't know where he lived.
I used to think all the kids on the Cosby Show were Bill Cosby's actual children. My wife set me straight when I was about 35. I'm so dumb sometimes.
I watched many years of TV series M*A*S*H* right up to the very last episode and had never heard of the Korean War. I thought the whole series was about Viet Nam War, because there were Asian people.
This is what happens when you have coaches teach high school history, and they just don't care.
I use to believe that the cop's theme song was "if you have aids and u have bad dreams don't look at me when they slap u in the face"
I used to watch the beginning of Romper Room just to see if Miss June could see me through her magic mirror...she never said my name though.
My parents often watched star trek during dinner and at other times when i was present. I never knew what was going on in the episodes (too young) so I thought that you had to be an adult to know. Furthurmore i thought that the only way you *could* be an adult was to know and that my parents watched star trek only to show off their adulthood.
Now I watch a lot of star trek and I'm still not an adult :(
I have a very, very vague memory of the Lawrence Welk show. I don't really recall what it actually was, but I do know that part of it (the opening, maybe?) involved bubbles, and that there were people playing music - for years, I believed that this was what people were referring to with "soap opera".
I used to think that Alex Trebek's name was 'Jeopardy Alex', because after introducing the contestants, the announcer would say "Now here's the host of our show, Jeopardy's Alex Trebek!" I thought he was saying 'Jeopardy Alex Trebek', and anyone who hosted the show had to change their first name to 'Jeopardy'.
I believed that I could actually grow up to BE Daisy Duke.
