tv showsShow most recent or highest rated first.
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.
When I was younger I used to believe that TV shows were happening in real life and then when I heard them say "At 9pm Eastern, 8Pm central" I was very confused as to why when I tried to watch it again at 9 it wasn't on.
I used to believe I invented Dennis the Menace. Now granted I was born in 1979, and he was around way before me, but that never stopped me from thinking, for some reason that I came up with the whole concept of Dennis the Menace. I'm not sure where this came from exactly... :)
When I was young and watched reruns of my favorite children's programs, I used to believe that each show was filmed over and over again and that every show was live. I was amazed at how the actors could say the same exact things and make the same exact movements for each show.
When I was litte l believed that the ''backgroundlaughter'' on certain comedy shows was actually because the tv recorded the laughing from people sitting and watching the show.
So I also tried it; I put my mouth close to the speakers from the telly and laugh very hard, hoping that it would be heard on the show. Crazy.
i thought that wrestling was real until i turned 7 years old and my cousin was wrestling.He new and told me it was fake.
Apparantly, I used to think there was a 'lion' in the 'Eastenders' map at the beggining of the show.
My mum says I used to scream 'LION! LION!!' Even though they could never see what I was talking about.
No idea either, looking at it now (though it could have been my early TV critic trying to tell my parents that Eastenders is the worst soap ever written).
When I was about 6 and my little brother was 4 we liked to play make-believe. On of our favorite things to play was Batman and Robin. We didn't know much background behind Batman and Robin because our mom thought it was too violent of a show for us to watch. Our favorite thing to act out was a wedding ceremony in which Batman and Robin would wed. We didn't realize that Robin was a boy...
When I was very young and watched Sesame Street, I thought Sesame Street was a real street in my city that I could go to. When My mom and I were out driving around I would look at each street we passed to see if I could see Big Bird and Oscar and the whole crew. I really wanted to go hang out with them.
The TV show "I Dream of Jeannie" featured Larry Hagman in the lead role of "Major Nelson," an astronaut. The show made such an impression upon me that I thought Major Nelson was a real astronaut that the show was based on. When I asked my father how many times Major Nelson went to the moon, he explained to me that he was just an imaginary character and didn't really exist. But to me "Nelson" sounded so much like a real astronaut's name, that I found it hard to believe. I later got a book out of the library about astronauts and searched all throughout it for any sign of a Nelson. Of course, I never found one. But I wonder--if one of those Apollo astronauts had the last name Nelson, would I have been convinced for a good while longer that Major Nelson was indeed a real astronaut? Hmmmm...
