i used to believe that when you hear the audience laughing in tv shows, it was people at home, watching tv, laughing. So i use to sit right next to the tv speaker and laugh into, thinking i one of those laughs was my own.
When i was about 5 - 8 i though the Power Rangers Existed!!
I used to believe that Telly from "Sesame Street" was hiding in my front closet and that if I opened it he would be there on his pogo stick talking about triangles
When I was 5, I used to think the people on the Cosby Show were a real family. Then one day I asked, "Why can't be we on TV too? And who are the people whose names keep coming on when the show starts?" and my aunt said, "TV isn't real, they're pretending". That changed my world, since up to that point I thought EVERYTHING on TV was real.
In an episode of the tv show "The Flying Nun", sally field explains her ability to fly is because of several factors, one of which was how much she weighed. I immediately ran into the bathrom to measure myself on the scales, in the belief that if I also wieghed that amount there may be a chance that I could fly.
I used to believe that the laughter I heard on programmes such as 'friends' after a funny comment was made was actually people's laughter who were sitting at home watching it at the same time.
When I was little, I was told that on movies and shows, the actors were just playing a game, and later went home, and had regular lives like normal people.
My logical, though mistaken, assumption was that when cartoons were over, cartoons went home and had regular lives. The reason I never saw cartoons anywhere was because they lived in a separate cartoon world.
As a little kid, I would have to hide at the end of the show "Romper Room"...because I believed the host actually COULD see us all through her magic mirror.
"I see Joey...and Bobby...oh, and Kelly, I see you too!"
When I was little, I used to watch Growing Pains a lot. I couldn't read at the time, though, so I always referred to it "groin pains."
When I was little, I had heard about live shows, where people dress up in big costumes and go perform.
When I heard about this, I begun to believe that all cartoons were acted out live by actors in painted costumes.
I was told by my cousin that every car park that had the words 'max headroom' above the entrance had in fact been visited by the 80's computer generated head on TV - Max Headroom.
When I was younger, I used to think that the reenactments of the criminals on America's Most Wanted were the actual videos of the person committing the crime. I used to be confused as to how they could tape them committing the crime without catching them.
I used to believe when a show was on people were filming it right then.LOL!
I used to believe that the TV show Matlock was a cooking program, because in Swedish "matlock" means "food lid".
I used to believe that when you turned off the tv all the people inside on the show you were watching stopped what they were doing and waited until you turned it back on to finish what they were saying.
I loved to watch Blues Clues as a kid. You know how Steve would say stuff like "Where was that clue again?" And then you'd hear a bunch of kids go "Right there!"
I always thought those were the voices of other kids who were watching the show at the same time as me.
And- it gets better- I thought that by yelling my answers directly into the TV speaker, this enabled other kids around the world to hear me.
I used to believe the tv serie "Doctor Who" was a spin off from James Bond... (until I saw an episode)
I used to think all television shows were made at the tv station on the hill of my home town.
I used to belive Ellen DiGenerous and Martha Stewart were the same person!
I also though Ellem DiGenerous was Ellen THE generous, because she gave gifts and so was "gererous"
As a tot, I believed that anything on telly was completely fictional.
I loved watching Star Trek, but I was always asking my dad, 'How can they afford to send the actors, cameras, and sets into space?'
