I used to think that the main character on "Clueless" (Cher) was actually named Clueless.
Whenever we pretended to be the characters, I always insisted on being "Clueless".

top belief!

Because my mum went on about violent TV influencing kids, and since I didn't have TV 'till I was 10, when I was about 5 I really believed that anyone who watched Power Rangers would grow up to be a murderer or sociopath or something.
I never talked to people if they told me they liked the show.

My mom used to tell me that when the people on the news said 'goodnight' they were talking to children and it meant that I *had* to go to bed.

I used to believe that the tv show: "Alló Alló" was called "In order of appearance", because in the end of the show it says "You have been watching: (in order of appearance)" and then the names of the actors. I must add that I'm Norwegian and did'nt learn any english untill I was about 7. Still I get the same feeling when I happen to see the show.

I used to believe I was one of the Power Rangers (the pink one) and thought I had her powers. I even bought everything pink to be more like her! Now I hate pink!

When watching the show Are You Afraid of the Dark at my grandma's house, I would always sit with my feet under me, in fear that a clown would come out of the TV and tickle my feet and that I would pee my pants.

When watching shows such as Americas Most Wanted or Unsolved Mysteries, I would get angry during reenactments. I thought what I was seeing was the crime videotaped and I could not understand why someone didn't stop it.

When i was young i used to believe that if i smashed the T.V. screen, and i crawled into the T.V. i would be where ever was on the T.V. So when i was watching batman i thought i would end up in Gotham City.
I told my dad this and he freaked out, and i quote "NO NO NO NO NO NO, If you break the T.V. its just a bunch of wires in there, and then the T.V. will be broken and we wont be able to watch our shows anymore, so PLEASE dont break the television, I cant afford to buy us a new one."

When I was about 6, I thought that the actors on the TV show were real, and tried sending a letter to the blue power ranger. Also at this time I thought just putting the person's name on the letter would get it to them.

I used to become VERY confused when I was little and my mom would watch crime shows. Whenever there was a reanactment I would ask my mom how the directors do that, because I thought it was the actual crime taking place. I would ask her how they knew where to be to film it and why they never tried to help the victim. She would tell me to be quiet so she could hear the tv, this went on on until I could read. XP

As a child, I didn't watch TV: I only heard people talking about it. As a result, I used to believe that there was a children's TV series set in Australia called 'Skippy the butch kangaroo.'

When I learned to read the TV guide, I thought "To Be Announced" was the name of a TV Show.

I thought it was like "To Tell The Truth," and eventually I convinced myself I had heard it introduced with that same kind of deep male narrator voice:

"TO BE....[pause]....ANNOUNCED!"

I used to believe that Barney the Dinosaur was real, the school where it was filmed was real and the kids in it actually went to that school. For years I wanted to live in America and go to that school just so I could be in Barney and be friends with these kids!
