I used to believe that when an actor was shot or in an accident on a tv show, that they actually died. I was so confused when I'd see them again on another show.
I thought it was a real homage to the love of their work!
When I was very young I was a fan of Sesame Street. However, I only liked the parts of the show with the muppets. I absolutely HATED the parts where they would show other little kids (I really have no idea why). When a part with other kids came on, I would run screaming away from the TV and into my bedroom and lock the door, because I believed that the kids would crawl out of the television and come and find me. I'm not sure exactly what I thought they would do, but I was terrified!
When I was very young, my grandmother used to watch "Unsolved Mysteries" with me, and I wouldn't be able to sleep at night because I thought the criminals were going to climb through my window and kill me.
Well, you know that 'audience laughing' you hear when your watching a comedy? i thought that the laughing was coming from viewers at home actually watching the show, so at all the funny parts id run up to the tv and laugh as loud as i could hoping that one of my friends would hear me. [:
I was 3 when Star Trek: The Next Generation first aired in 1986. It came on at 7, after the 6 o'clock news. My nerdy parents stayed put after the news, so I believed that Star Trek was real, space news. I loved the space news after the boring Earth news. I was so devastated when I learned it wasn't real that the Santa Claus truth was an anticlimactic afterthought. I'm now an engineer at NASA so I think it had an effect on me...
When I was in about the second or third grade my mother always watched "soap operas" when I came back home from school she'd always have it on. For some reason I never got the name down properly. I used to believe it was called, "soap boppers."
I used to think that, when a show had a commercial break, it was in fact over. I would always get disappointed and change the channel, wondering why episodes of Power Rangers never made much sense. My mother assured me that the shows continue after a few minutes, when I was about 5.
When I was young...I used to believe that when my mom turned the T.V. off on my favorite show....it would be there were I left off at.
I used to believe that when television shows and movies had people getting married, that they could not have a full wedding ceremony because if they did, they would really be married- ridiculous!
When I was little I thought that the audience in sitcoms was really the cast itself watching playbacks of their show and laughing...
I used to be very disturbed by the TV show Murder She wrote because I was conviced Jessica Fletcher (Angela Landsbury) was the one killing all the people and pinning it on other people. People were always dying when she was around. Why was I the only one noticing that?!?
I used to believe that Little House on the Prairie was filmed in the 1800's =)
when my mom was a kid she would watch the beatles cartoon show. she believed that the actual beatles acted in the show and wondered how they would have the time for being in the show.
I used to believe that if you turned off the television the show would pause. i ran up the electric bill leaving the tv on all the time.
I didn't want to watch Unsolved mysteries because I thought the killers would know that I knew their secret and come kill me.
I often questioned Cookie Monster's true affinity for cookies. I would think, "If Cookie Monster loves cookies so much, why doesn't he swallow a single bite? All of the pieces just fall out of his mouth." I think I was well into my teens when it dawned on me that puppets can really swallow.
When i was little, I was a HUGE fan of the tv show, Lampchop. I had the clothes, the DVDs, almost everything. Well one night my mom told me we were having "lambchops" for Dinner. I freaked out! i was crying hysterically. My mom killed lambchop and is making her for dinner! Well, my mom explained it to me, I was still apprehensive, until Lampchop was on tv the next morning :D
I could never understand how Unsolved Mysteries would be able to film things as they happened, but that the police could never get there quick enough to find out what happened. It was years before I learned that they were recreations!
I used to believe that the wolf or whatever in the 'Road Runner Show' would one day catch the bird.So saddened that with all these years of trying he still hasn't.
I used to watch Saturday Night Live and thought that they hired really crappy, unknown bands to play. Eventually, I realized that they were re-runs and the crappy, unknown bands were actually really famous back int he day.
