When I was about 4 I was watching Sesame Street. Someone on the show found a secret passage in a normal looking wall. I looked around and saw the outlets in the wall and thought that they must be keyholes to the secret passages in my house. I stuck a key into the outlet... thankfully it wasn't the heavily charged side. No secret passageway opened, and I was so embarressed at having put a key into it that I made myself pull it out so no one would find out.

I used to believe that a "Sitcom" was any live-action comedy show. So, like, Spongebob wouldn't be a sitcom, because it's a cartoon. I also thought that the name meant Sit-Comedy, you would SIT down and laugh and the COMEDY.

Life is not a sitcom.

There was a show called "You can't do that on Television" back in the (19)80's on Nickelodeon. Sometimes they'd ask the home audience to participate and 'vote' by pressing a Red or Green square on the screen. Although I always wondered how it worked, I really believed my vote went through by touching the TV screen. & sometimes, when I thought I was being slick, I wouldn't vote, just to see if 'they' would notice and say something to me on TV or send a letter to my mom.

When I was little and was into the show 'Late Night with Conan O'Brien', and looked it up on Wikipedia. I was horrified when it said that he 'often manipulates his pompadour for comic effect'. I didn't know what a pompadour was, and assumed it was vulgar. It makes me laugh to this day.

I used to wonder how the announcer on TV nature programs managed to "direct" animals to do exactly what the announcer was talking about at any given moment.

When I was little, I didn't know the difference between "cash" and "change". So I used to wonder, when people won money on game shows, how the contestants got thousands of dollars in quarters home.

For some reason, I once thought that OJ Simpson invented the Simpsons TV show. I asked my mom about this one day, and I stood corrected. It turned out that OJ was a past-football player and Matt Groening or whoever was the guy who invented the show. Now I wonder if Homer J Simpson was named after OJ.

On Blue's Clues, Steve would ask a question and you would hear a bunch of little kids answer. I thought that I could be a national superstar just by yelling answers into my TV's speakers.

I used to believe EVERYTHING I watched on Nova and In Search Of. I would try to research things and I took notes on all the shows. I knew that one day I would discover exactly how internal combustion worked and save people from burning up!

I used to believe that Bert from sesame street was supposed to be a talking banana, and wondered what talking food Ernie was supposed to be. After a while I decided he must be a hamburger...

I used to believe that the people who dressed up in animal costumes on TV shows were real animals, just life sized versions from a magical land.
