When I was little I watched Mac Guyver all the time. One time I thought I could repel out of the second story bedroom window and down the front of the house. My only problem was that I didnt know how to tie knots as well as Mac Guyver did. Thank goodness for shrubbery.

When my Dad was about seven, he and his brother were watching Star Trek. When the commercials came on, his brother, ((Who was about fifteen,)) started talking about Spock, saying 'Whoa ho! I bet that guy is laughing and acting happy the whole time the commercials are on, since he's gotta be serious the rest of the time!'

And my Dad, who I must mention is nearly ten years younger, was thinking, 'But it's not a live program ...'. =)

My brother used to believe (and insist) that "Family Feud" was really called "Family Feudge" (pronounced "fyooj"). I don't remember when he finally came clean about it.

I used to believe that "Wheel of Fortune" was called "Squeal of Fortune." I don't know why.

There was a BBC TV show for kids called The Wombles about these pretend creatures that live on Wimbledon Common and recycle and tidy up rubbish. One of them was called Uncle Bulgaria and so I thought that a womble must be a subspecies of badger that in reality lived in Bulgaria. I was really into nature as a child and knew that no real animal wore clothes and so I thought that they lived underground in Bulgaria. I never knew where Bulgaria was until I was older but I thought that it was mountain and deserts. In the desert, they would eat worms and insects. In mountains, they supplemented their diets with berries and grains. I donít know why but as a child, I thought Bulgaria was like an African country and that wombles scavenged anything from human settlements. I eventually realized a womble was purely pretend and has no basis on real-life animals. =)

when I was a kid aahh! real monsters was my all time favorite show. first imagination: I pretended that the monsters would leave to go to class at midnight.(gromble starts class at midnight I have the plush versions of ickis krumm and oblina) then imagination turned into belief. I believed for the longest time that they were as real as I was. that was fun

The theme song to The Wombles includes the line 'the wombles of Wimbledon common are we'. For years (until I was well into adulthood) I thought this meant that the wombles were not posh because they made their living picking up litter.

I used to believe that it took exactly one week to produce one episode of my favorite TV show, because a new episode would come out every Saturday.
Because of this, I also believed that reruns happened because one of the actors got sick or something and they weren't able to finish the episode in time for that week.

I used to believe that the people who got shot in TV shows where people who wanted to die.

When I was 7, we moved from Philadelphia to Denver. I'd seen the West on TV and thought we'd leave our car at the Colorado Border and have horses to ride to our ranch.

When I was little, KTTV Channel 11 (the Fox affiliate in Los Angeles, CA) showed reruns of "Small Wonder." I had a HUGE crush on the main character, Vicki the Robot. I used to believe that she/it was real. I even used to insist that said belief was true. But then I came clean. She/it was played by a very human girl (now almost-30-year-old woman) named Tiffany Brissette. Even to this day I remember the show's theme song by heart, but this is not the place for me to post it. You probably remember it, too.

Do you remember how Sesame Street sponsored each show with a letter? Well, they'd say today's show was 'brought to you by... the letter B" or something similar. Until recently I thought "brought to you" was all one word like brotiued meaning sponsored by.

i used to think the power rangers were syncronized gymnasts because they all wore different coloured lycra suits and started doing moves with swords and lasers

when i was little, there was a tv programme on called Sesame Street. There was this wierd puppet dracula called 'Count Dracula' because he used to count everything that was anywhere near him! He lived in a haunted castle and had lots of bat friends. I had an obsession with him and i was convinced that i loved him! I thought one day we were going to meet in his castle, have dinner and count all night long! Also on Sesame Street, there were little clips of dogs doing stuff humans would do e.g. bake cakes and doing gymnastics. She used to think that they would jump out of the screen and haunt her. Sesame Street was a scary but educational programme when i was little!

Ahhh, The Incredible Hulk. I wanted to be just like him. I also happened to be a picky eater. Imagine my parents' glee when I believed the source of Hulk's strength was split-pea soup, and if I just ate enough of it myself, I could aquire his powers, too.

Watching I Love Lucy when I was 3 or so I can remember when Lucy was about to get caught for her antics by her husband, I would run around in circles in the Livingroom terrified that Ricky would be really mad. I still feel that anxiety!

There used to be a segment on Sesame Street where they built a picture of a tunnel and then it became real and a train started coming towards the screen. Well, I used to think that it was going to come through the tv set and I used to run away crying.

Probably because it was on so late at night, and because it showed people in their underwear, I thought Benny Hill was the most hardcore pornography in existence.

As small children our grandfather would force all of us (his grandchildren) to watch The Incredible Hulk on tv (with Lou Ferrengo). This never really did it for me, but my cousin would repeatedly say "the hulk's nice, isn't he," whenever the hulk appeared. As a birthday treat, his father decorated his room with Hulk wallpaper, as he always talked about the Hulk. That night, my cousin lay in bed, unable to sleep as he was actually frightened to death of the hulk. It seemed that he was actually extremely scared, but believed that by repeatedly saying nice things about him, he would become his friend and would therefore be safe. My uncle was not pleased at having to strip all the wall paper down the next day.
