top belief!

A lot of people have said they believed when Mister Rogers said stuff to the camera that he was talking to them personally. I didn't believe that--I thought he was talking to the cameraman!! I always liked how he was so nice to the cameraman.

I had a bunch of misconceptions when it came to Wheel of Fortune. When I was really little, I thought Vanna White was a robot because she never talked (I guess I always missed the end segments). Once I figured out she was a real person, I thought she and Pat Sajak were married (I believed this for years). I also believed that the center of the wheel was filled with green slime like on Nickelodeon.

When I was a kid I watched The Price is Right a lot. Every once in a while they would bring a puppy on the show to do a PSA for animal shelters, but it always occured right after they described one of the prizes. I used to think that whoever won that prize also won the puppy. I wanted to go on the show so I could win a puppy and my grandpa never bothered to straighten me out on the subject.

When I was young there were two shows that featured absolutely loads of Gunge (which is a gloopy stuff used in kids shows a lot in the 90s) well one day a friend told me that Gunge doesn't actually come off and if you get any on you you're stuck with it forever. Naturally I was horrified that tv would do something like that and everytime Noel Edmund's House Party (where he Gunged people twice a night) or that kids show where children competed to drop their embarassing family members into a big pool of Gunge came on I would flee from the room.

I used 2 get freaked out by the teletubbies. When the ' like ' drain pipe thing came up and said " teletubbies where are u?" I either hid under my bean bag, hid next 2 the tv under the table where it couldn't c me, or in the other room and poke my head round to check it was still there, if it was i'd jump into the other room until i heard the teletubbies talkin' and knew it was safe! l.o.l

I used to believe that Sesame Street was at the end of the lane that went through the small woodland behind my house. Every time I'd watch the show and then when it was over, I'd rush out and try to 'get in' to Sesame Street, but it was never there. I remember reasoning with myself that it must only be there when the Show started, and I never got there because I didn't wan't to miss the programme! Good grief :-)

When I was little, My dad used to always say "What 'chu talkin' 'bout Willis" to me. One day, I asked my dad when he was talking about something... "Are you going to invite your friend Bob Willis?" He just laughed and I didn't learn till a few years later what he was actually talking about.

I used to be very obsessed with the show 'Digimon'. Whenever my friends would come over we would try to get into the Digiworld with our Digivices for about three hours. We did this about every time she came over for about a year!

As a child watching Mama's Family, I truly believed the Mama was an old woman acting on tv. I NEVER knew that Mama was actually Vicki Laurence!

I use to believe that Barney was actually a really mean person. After the camera went off he would scream at all the kids and hit them and would let them go home to their families. I would watch the show for secret crys of help from the kids so I could convince my parents to go help them. My parents were convinced that I actually liked it. They bought me sheet with Barney's face and I flipped. I don't think they ever understood me.

For some reason, I used to believe that the show X-Files was about people who put Xs on files, and animals come out of them.

"Smallville" is a television show about Superman as a teenager. When it first came out a year or two ago, I for some reason refused to believe my brother when he said that it was about Superman. He made fun of me for weeks.

P.S. When my brother watched me write this, he corrected me that the show has been going on for about five years. I don't know if I should believe him...

On the News show "One News" a reporter, once finished reporting a story would state thier name and the News Crew they were with, for examle "Joe Bloggs, One News". But I believed they were saying "Joe Bloggs, Won News" as if the news was a huge competition to see who could get the best story possible

I used to believe that TV shows were all happening as I watched them, especially sit-coms. I believed that the people in the shows were in real time and that they apparently never used the restroom.

We had a nice mailman and one day I wanted to send in a letter to a TV show for a drawing but I did not have a stamp. The mailman took my letter and a nickel and said he would buy the stamp or me. I wathedf the TV show for weeks and weeks and they never called my name as a winner, so I was sure the mailman threw my letter away and stole my nickel.
