I used to watch those kiddy shows where they ask you a question pause then say something, when I first went to school I told everyone I was famous but I later found out what really happend when my teacher called home.
While watching the opening credits of The A Team (back in the eighties) I asked my Dad if he knew what the 'T' stood for in Mr. T's name. He casually told me it was Thatcher as Mr. T was Margret Thatcher's son. I didn't pick up on that one for nearly twenty years!
I used to think that some television shows were real. That they were merely people being filmed without knowing it. My idea was stolen though. They now call that "Reality Tv" not the Brady Bunch.....
The first time I heard about "Survivor" was when I saw a commercial asking "who would be the last one left on the island?" At that time I didn't know about immunity challenges or tribal council or anything, so I assumed this meant they had to keep living on the island until all of them but one had died! I thought that was terrible, and refused to watch the show. When I found out how it really worked, I thought "Oh well that makes more sense!" I still think it's terrible, though.
In the UK, there's a programme called "It'll Be Alright On The Night" and it shows out-takes and bloopers of other tv programmes. Whenever I watched it, I thought that when an actor got his or her lines wrong and started laughing, I thought it was because somebody had told them a really funny joke at lunchtime and they were laughing at it. Subsequently I thought that all of the out-takes and bloopers took place in the afternoon. Hmmm....
i used to watch power rangers when i was younger. i was afraid that, if those horrible monstrs ever came, who would save since power rangers do not exist?
My favorite movie for about a year was the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. I was convinced that every time I watched the movie, they had to do it all over again, as if they were inside the TV, acting out the movie just for me. I worried that they would get tired after a while and refuse to come out again.
When I was little I saw a magic show where near the end the assistant was "turned into a poster" in a giant roller and then "folded" into the magicians trunk with the rest of his props.
I assumed that she must resultantly be dead. I couldn't for the life of me comprehend why a young woman would sacrifice herself for a magic show. Then I realized he must of done this trick more than once. How could girls just keep sacrificing themselves like that? I was quite upset as I lingered on this for the rest of the day...
When I was little I used to watch a show. It was a little kids show. The guy that was on it always said names of people like "Godd morning, Sally, Good morning, Ben!" And I thought he could really see people and one day he came on and he said, Good Morning, Katelyn, Good Morning, Melissa" and that just so happens to be me and my sister's names! I ran to my mom screaming, "MOMMY! MOMMY! MR. DRESSUP SAW ME!!!" and my mom would just laugh. It never ocurred to me that he was just saying names.
when i was little, whenever we watched stars in your eyes, i used to think they'd send someone through the lights and the smoke, and send the real singer back out, and i used to shout at the tv that they were cheating, i also thought that everything on telly was live!
when i was younger there used to be a cooking show that my mom and grandma used to watch called the froogle gourmet, and I thought that he was always called the 'google' gourmet, so whenever the show came on, i would always yell 'look it's the google gourmet!'
When I was a child I was fascinated by Julia Child and her show "The French Chef". I believed Julia had magical powers. She would make a dish or desert and then put it in the oven or refrigerator. When she was finished putting everything together she would look at the audience, say a few "magic words" and, POOF! Out came the finished product!
I used to believe that a cartoon was colored with markers, and a T.V. show (like friends or E.R.) was colored with colored pencils.
When I was about 4 years old and used to watch the TV show "Alice" with my family, I would do my impression of one of the waitresses. When she said, "Mel, kiss my grits" to the owner, I didn't know what grits were. I would say, "Mel, kiss my grips!" My family would crack up at me messing up the line and I thought they just liked my impression!
When i was about 4 or 5 years old, i watched the original 1970's version of the planet of the apes.i then started to have nightmares about the monkeys and that they would come through our letterbox in our door and chase me upstairs and attack me while i was in my bedroom.Very wierd i know and i still have the same dream now and again
I used to believe that the characters in soap-opera were real, and that all the things that hapenned to them were also real.
There is a very famous British children's TV show called Blue Peter which is almost as much of a British Institution as Big Ben. When I was a kid the presenters, John Noakes, Peter Purves and Valerie Singleton in those days, used to say at the end of each programme "we'll see you on Monday/Thursday". I thought this meant they could see me sitting on my parents' settee like I could see them on TV. When I studied 1984 for English in high school the phrase "the telescreen not only transmitted but received" reminded me of what I had thought about the Blue Peter presenters when I was a kid.
Not really connected to tv shows, but my sister (who is four years old) thinks Superman is actually called Stupidman, who kills enemies with the power of stupidity. Why? Because me and my brother told her so!
I believed that BP petrol stations were owned and run by the same people who did Blue Peter (because of the initials)
Before I learned about the existence of stuntmen, I used to believe that suicidal actors were used.
