When i was young, i used to believe that if i dressed up as one of the teletubbies, i could have a small glittery blue television on my stomach just like them. that way, i could watch what young kids my age were doing!

When I was little I used to watch Seseme Street all the time. There was one character on the show, if you'll remember, named Mr. Snufalufacus. Well, if you watched the show and remember him, you'll remember he had these HUGE eyelashes. Well, I was convinced that if I got some shampoo in my eyes, my eyelashes would grow to that length and it scared me to DEATH! I would scream and cry whenver my mom tried to wash my hair because I was afraid I would have eyelashes like Mr. Snufalufacus.

Before I started school I saw the odd bit of daytime tv show Trisha (Ricki Lake/ Jerry Springer type show). Anyway in Trisha's studio audience there were always loads of different types of people like teenage goths with flesh tubes, old grannies, bald tattooed guys, fashionably dressed ladies etc. I thought to get all those different types of people there, Trisha's studio audience must be called up, like JURY DUTY!
"Oh honey I've been called up to be in Trisha's studio audience!"
It never occured to me that thet might all LIKE the show...

When I was little, I didn't really understand how the tv worked. On the show Mr. Roger's Neighborhood, Mr. Rogers would always talk to the audience. Because he was talking to me, I thought I could reply to him, so every day when I watched Mr. Rogers (around the age of 4) I'd be going "Hey! Hey! Mr. Rogers! Hey!!" for the entire show.

We have a music room with several musical instruments in it. (my family is very musical.) One day, when I was about 5, I was playing around on the snare drum and I asked my mom if the characters on Sesame Street lived in there. She said yes, so from then on, I thought the characters on Sesame Street lived in the snare drum.

When I was a little kid, I used to believe that when TV shows went "off the air," that meant that the characters from the TV show were going away on an airplane and never coming back! It made sense to me at the time...

I used to feel sorry for the kids on Sesame Street because I thought it looked like they lived in the ghetto. The city street scene with the buildings and garbage cans and lack of grassy fields, etc. was very different from the houses with land and livestock, trees, and barns that I was used to seeing.

I used to think that 'bonus' was some horrible skull creature made of bones. Whenever someone got a bonus on a game show I'd be scared for them, and I thought it was horrible someone would make them face the 'bonus'.

When I was 4 I used to watch this show called "Eerie Indiana." It stared two guys in it who investigated stuff or something like that. Anyways I I always heard "Iry and Deana" and belived the show was called that because those were the names of the two boys who investigated, I just couldn't figure out why nobody ever called them by those names on the show.

My dad would always watch the show Cops, while I would watch with him. Since most of the people on the show were black, it led me to believe every black person was a criminal. Whenever I saw a black person on the street, I would start singind the Cops theme song. Needless to saw, my mom wasn't to thrilled.

In the UK there was a show called The Adventure Game where the contestants (who were children) had to walk the "Vortex". This was a grid you had to get across one move at a time without the enemy getting to you (a bit like Chess but more sophisticated!). In between the grid lines was nothingness and if the child got caught he fell down into it. I genuinely believed that the children fell into the Vortex and never came back, and I couldn't understand why people kept applying to go on the show.

I am still afraid of grids...

I used to believe that when I watched televison, the people on the screen were actually behind my tv set. So I would always go sit behind the tv when my favourite show was on. Thinking that the rest of my family could see me on the screen in my favourite show.

In the UK there are two comedians called Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett (who both wear specs). They did a series called "The Two Ronnies".
The opening sequence to the show featured an animation of two pairs of specs and this led me to think that pairs of specs were actually called Ronnies!

When I was a kid I used to think that the microphone clips celebrity guests wear on talk shows were to prevent the host from being attacked by the guest in case the guest got angry.

When I was a kid I used to watch Wheel of Fortune a lot. Whenever somebody spun the wheel and it landed on "Bankrupt" I thought that they really did lose everything they had (house, car, bank accounts, etc.)

When I was little, I used to watch a show called "Square One", a scetch show teaching about math. One of the segments was a Pacman parody called "Math Man", where this little guy consisting of a football helmet and legs would have to gobble up numbers that fit into a certain equasion or something, and if he got it wrong, he'd be eaten by this tornado-thing with eyes and a mouth called The Glitch. I used to think the Glitch was real, and was out there waiting to eat me because I wasn't good at math.

My dad watched a lot of Star Trek when my little sister was young. She used to do the Vulcan hand salute and say "Live long in Frostburg!" - Frostburg being the small town where our grandparents lived. It was so cute that no one had the heart to correct her, so it wasn't until she was in her teens that she figured out it was supposed to be "Live long and prosper". She's still a little annoyed at that one!
