The opening sequence of Sesame street used to show all these kids running from different places to get to Sesame street. Obviously this meant that I too could join in the fun of Sesame street! I naturally assumed that, by simply running in any random direction for long enough I would just wind up on Sesame street. I was eventually found a mile and a half away form my house under a bridge, wondering where the hell Oscar the Grouch was hiding.

I used to think that soap operas were actually called "soappoppers" and I thought they were called this because the emotions on the show were so extreme that if there were soap bubbles in the room they would break because of all the tension and raised voices!

there's this corporate building near my house which is rather plain-looking and made of brick. the name of the company, which i forget, begins with a "B" and there is a large red B before it says the name. for some reason, when i was a small child and i knew the alphabet but i couldn't read, i was convinced that this was where bert from sesame street worked. it was a paperclip factory.

I used to beleive that Big Bird's beak was made out of the same stuff birthday cake flowers were made of. Everytime I watched Sesame Street I wanted to take a bite out of his beak!

I always wondered about those cooking shows. The chefs could put food in an oven, and then pull it out and they'd be cooked! I just guessed my mom was just a bad cook.

I also used to believe that people weren't really kissing on tv or in the movies. I kenw that their lips couldn't actually be touching despite what I was seeing so I came up with the theory that the actors wore reaaalllyyy thin plastic lip guards.

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.
