When i was a child i firmly believed that when i was on Ready Steady Cook (it was compulsory, everyone had to do it) if i didnt think of a good enough name for my meal or quickly enough Ainsley Harriot would pull out a bazooka and blow me up. I don't know why, he just looked like a mean guy. It used to scare the hell out of me, and i'd practice at night, thinking up weird and wonderful names.

Im not crazy, everyone else is

after watching too much Gilligan's Island, i had the idea that quicksand could be found anywhere, and i was always afraid i'd fall in some when i least expected it. it wasn't until much later that i realized there will never be quicksand in new york city.

I used to think that Mr Snuffalupagus really was invisible, and that like Big Bird, I was special and that we were the only ones who could see Snuffy. Of course, now EVERYONE on Sesame Street can see him. I was disappointed when my daughters started watching & I saw that Big Bird's secret was out. It just seemed so much a part of the show AND Big Bird & Snuffy that it sort of spoiled it for me.

My son, then age 4, - now 13 - used to believe that Vanna White was a tiny little person, fairy size, and that's why she was smaller than the letters of the puzzles on Wheel of Fortune.

When I was little, I thought that the people on TV could see us, and when they talked/looked at the camera, they were talking just to me. I used to have a crush on Luke from the "Dukes of Hazard", so every Saturday night I would spend the hr. before the show getting dressed up in my best pajamas, curling my hair and making sure I looked my best for Luke!

When watching the show The Incredible Hulk, I used to think that if I watched him change from Bruce Banner he would come through the TV and get me. Trust me, I got to be very good at hiding in the cushions of the couch when I heard that telltale music.

I used to think that soap operas were the real lives of the people on the other side of the world, and that there were hidden cameras taping me for them to watch!

Mr. Rogers creeped me out. I thought he could see me through the tv. I would hide in my closet to change clothes so he couldn't see me naked.

I used to believe that Eric Estrada was a woman. I heard the name as "Erica Strada" the first time, and just assumed this was a woman until I saw it in print as "Eric".

I recently confessed to my husband that I used to believe that when I grow up I would marry Superman and that is why I never liked Lois, when later that day told my mom about it she admitted that she didn't like Lois as well.

When watching sit-coms as a kid, I thought that the lives of the people continued after the show was over. I believed there was a camera in thier hom that would let us watch the family at a cfertian time every week. These were recorded, and then shown again later as re-runs when the family was on vacation or something.

I asked my mum how the hands on Thunderbirds were so realistic. She answered: because they are real hands. Therefore I believed that they where the hands of dead bodies stuck onto puppets. Be interesting to see that one on your donor card!

I was about 6 and was watching a particularly good episode of Knight Rider one day, when Michael Knight was invited round to a sassy lady's apartment to do some investigative work.
She then offered him a drink whilst leaning seductively over a bar and he replied, 'No thanks, I don't drink.'
And so I believed for the next few years that Michael Knight didn't drink...anything...ever. Not even water.

I used to wonder how it would be snowing in summer and light when it was dark, and warm in the winter on tv shows. Finally I learned it was pretaped.

I used to get confused when watching Wheel of Fortune, because I didn't understand that there was a camera overhead looking down at the wheel. I through there were two wheels, one flat for the people to spin, and another vertical one for the camera to shoot that would turn in sync with the flat one, somehow. Strange.

Before I learned about live studio audiences… I used to think that if I laughed really hard into my television speakers, that other families watching from their living rooms could hear me… because I reasoned that was where these other voices were coming from. So I purposely tried to laugh out of tune and when I heard someone that sounded like myself, I would smile with content because I had just heard myself on TV.

Later when I learned about reruns, I would get excited when I heard someone laugh like myself because I was certain that was ME from a previous taping.

I thought they must use prisoners to shoot and kill for the movies. They would just cast convicted murderers in the roles of those who would eventually die in the movie.
