I used to love Rainbow and much to the amusement of my friends I've only just learnt that George, the pink hippo, was infact male. I thought with the long eyelashes and tiara that George (short for Georgina) was particularly girly. Oh the naivety of youth!

When I was little, I thought that if you crawled down Mr. Rogers' Trolley tunnel you would actually reach the land of make believe.

Note: This is borderline "Misheard Lyrics." I've been a Trekkie ("Star Trek" fan, for the 2 or 3 out there who don't know) since I was born. Once when I was about three, I asked Mom & Dad when Kirk & the crew of the "Enterprise" were going to see the Snowman. "... to boldly go where Snowman has gone before." Nowadays, I'm an illustrator; and whenever I paint a nighttime or outer space scene, I always include a close-knit binary pair of stars that resembles a snowman.

When I was very small (3 years), I would only catch bits and pieces of M*A*S*H as my mother and grandmother watched. I knew there was a character called Radar, and I figured it must be the one who dresses up like a woman, because he'd be able to sneak up to the enemy in all of his disguises.

20 years later, M*A*S*H is still one of my favorite shows of all time

When I was 4 or 5 Mom would watch her soaps while ironing Dad's shirts. Her favorite was "Shirts for Tomorrow". It was years later I realized what she'd been watching was "Search for Tomorrow".

When watching Star Trek as a kid, I always heard that opening line "..to boldly go.." as "..to bold lego..", and wondered for the longest time what it meant to "bold" something, and what exactly "lego" was.

Watching the show "Real People" when I was about 3 or 4, I thought that show was the only one where the images were actual people--and all the rest were cartoons or puppets.

When I was very small, I used to watch Have Gun Will Travel on TV with my Grandmother. The lead character always gave out his business card which said "Wire Paladin." So, I thought his first name was "Wire." (Every week I'd say, "Let's watch Wire.") I never even thought about it until a few years ago, when my husband and I were watching old reruns of it on TV. When Paladin pulled out the business card, I burst out laughing.My husband looked at me like I was a lunatic. When I explained it to him, he REALLY thought I was a lunatic!

When I was a kid, I used to think that all the TV shows I watched were real, and that there were people filming in the back round. Yes, I thought that film of Buck Rodgers and Star Trek were sent back through time and that Batman and the Hulk were real people. It wasn't untill I saw Lenord Nemoy doing a movie review show with out the ears and laughing that I figured it out. (I didnt see that show untill I was 10)

When I used to watch "Fat Albert and the Cosby Kids," I believed that Russell was a girl. Must've been the hat and the funny voice. Being a girl myself, I wanted someone to identify with, I guess.

When I got the Fat Albert board game one Christmas, I wanted to play Russell. My mom said to my dad "Is that his brother." "SISTER!" I said, adamantly. My parents gave up trying to explain.

Sometime later, Russell used the phrase "Yuck, a girl!" on the show, and I think that convinced me. Rocked my world, though.

Bill Cosby had an album, which I didn't hear until years later (although my parents had heard it long before I got the Fat Albert game) called "To My Brother Russell, Whom I Slept With."

As a child I believed that my life might just be a book that Pa Ingalls was reading to Laura on Little House on the Prairie.

When I was very little I used to have a recurring nightmare about Jimmy Saville. In my dreams he was called the tickling man and he used to chase me and try to tickle me ( i hated being tickled) dressed in red dungarees and a yellow t-shirt, laughing in a deranged manner.

understandably i used to cry hysterically and hide whenever hhe appeared on the tv.

When my brother and I were little, we loved to watch our favorite show about a man who would turn into a big green muscle bound monster when he would get mad. Remember? My brother called it the "Incredible Honk"

I thought the women in Prisoner Cell Block H were actresses banged up in prison themselves.

When I was younger I thought that if someone died on a TV show or movie that they were really dead. So whenever I'd see an actor with a gun, I'd run and hide cause I didn't want to see someone get killed.

When I was little, I had two imaginary friends, "Scoola" and "Roe Call". I never understood why this made my family laugh so hard until one day as an adult, I saw a re-run of an old Mouseketeers episode. All the Mouseketeers came out, then they said, "It's time for school and roll call!" and everyone cheered and clapped. I didn't see anyone else come out, so I figured "Schoola" and "Roe Call" must be imaginary.

I thought that the women in Prisoner CBH were actual prisoners, until I saw a repeat of The Young Doctors where Maggie Gordon looked like Julie Egbert. Mum told me that the same actress (Jackie Woodburne now plays Susan Kennedy in Neighbours)

When Neighbours was first shown twice a day, I felt sorry for the residents in Ramsey Street for repeating their lives 4 hours later. It was only when Scott and Charlene's wedding, I realised that the show was recorded. Having the same 2 weddings on the same day must have been costly.
