tv showsShow most recent or highest rated first.
I used to think "The Addams Family" and "The Munsters" were all one show called "The Monster Family", they were both in black and white and about families who lived in haunted houses, so I thought they were the same.
Whenever I was coloring with markers and didn't have a skin-colored marker, I would color the people yellow. So when I saw The Simpsons, I naturally assumed that they were yellow because the person drawing them didn't have a skin-colored marker.
I thought the show The Wonder Years was made in the 60's where it takes place (it actually started in 1988)
I used to believe that the way TV show's ratings were obtained, was that 2 guys with clipboards would go to everyone's house like the census but instead of knocking on your door they would just peer into your living room window and write down what they saw was on your tv.
I grew up in Wimbledon, home of The Wombles (a kids TV show about environmentally friendly creatures called Wombles who lived on Wimbledon Common). My mum used to take me to Wimbledon Common to look for Wombles. Being smart, I "knew" we weren't going to find walking talking Wombles. I had "figured out" they were just regular animals like squirrels. I was well into my teens when I said to her "It's a shame we never found a real Womble in the park" and she cracked up and informed me there was no such thing. I was so disappointed.
When I was watching a dance and singing competition, the singing performed a lift with three men holding her up. I asked my mum 'How did they know they had to pick her up?' She explained to me that they practised before and didn't just make it up on the day. I never quite got my head round this.....
When I was a small girl, I used to believe I wasn't allowed to watch any "boy shows" because they were too violent. This may have begun with seeing an episode of Batman: The Animated Series (you know, the one with the huge adult fanbase) at a friend's house, which makes sense... but I also thought I wasn't allowed to watch Freakazoid, Dragonball Z, or Earthworm Jim because they were also about superheroes.
This was disappointing because I wanted to go as Earthworm Jim for Halloween. I just thought he was so cool-looking! (My fantasies of Halloween that year involved inflatable super-suits.)
I used to believe that all characters from TV shows were real. My parents told me that the Teletubbies lived in England, so when my cousin went to England I asked her to bring me back a Teletubbie.
I thought for a long time that Star Trek was "Star Track" because I had never heard the word trek before but I thought star track refered to how the show tracks their adventures
I used to think that the actors on tv shows sang the show's theme song.
I used to believed that Tom Selleck was winking at me at the end of the entrance of Magnum P.I.
I was embarrassed and turned my head around to ignore him!
i use to think that i was part of a tv show that a giant was watching
When I was little, I thought all shows were live and when they played commercials, they were deciding what to do next in the show.
When I was a very small child, there was a TV drama about war called "Combat." My brothers used to watch it. I thought that they used live ammunition and actually killed the actors. But oddly, this didn't upset me. I thought anyone who was dumb enough to be an actor and die after one tv episode wasn't worth worrying about.
I used to be believe that in the TV Guide, when it said "To Be Announced", that it was a nationally broadcast news show, like 20/20.
When I was 3 or 4, my parents told me that everything on tv was make-believe. This later led to a couple police officers ringing the doorbell for a welfare check after I dialed 911 and promptly hung up after I realized someone had actually answered. Apparently my parents didn't consider the show Rescue 911 when telling me tv was not real.
I used to think that actors on TV shows weren't really kissing. That one was standing slightly farther back than the other (in relation to the camera) and they would make kissing motions. Because why would they actually kiss?
when I was 7, I used to think that, because of Sabrina the Teenage Witch, I would wake up one day with magical powers
I used to believe that the character's names in movies/shows were the actor's real names.
I used to have a terrible fear of the noise made by the magpies in the 'Bananas in Pajamas' show. It got so bad that I would lay awake at night and when I got tired enough I swore they were walking around outside my window. I still believe those things are demon birds.
