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.

i Used to believe that all adult shows [even adult cartoons] were NOT supposed to be funny. They were supposed to be very serious. I knew that The Simpsons was an adult show, because my mom never let me watch it before. So then one day, she did. It was the first show i had seen that didn't have a laughtrack. i Also didn't understand any of the jokes so i thought it was very serious.

Also, i thought Beavis and Butthead were real, serious names. I had never seen the show, so i thought it was like Regis and Kelly or something! [which i also had never seen]

My father believed that there was only one person playing Michelle Tanner. There was no way in getting him to believe otherwise ... he actually believed the name of the actor playing Michelle Tanner was "May Kate Ashley Olsen" ... what ever order their names appeared in on screen ... I think he finially was convinced it was twins playing the role once people began to see both of them ... but I don't know ... I still think he believes it was just one person ... and I don't want to get in an arguement over it - again ...

I used to think the Show "Law and Order" was a show about someone called Laura Norder! I used to think that Law and Order SVU was "Laura Norder - She's very ugly" When my mum had some friends over she said to me. "Time to go to bed now, we're watching Law and Order". "Are you watching the ugly one?" I asked. They all laughed and I was asked to explain myself. To this day whenever we watch Law and Order, Someone always asks if we are watching the ugly one.

My mum used to call those all-in-one sleep suits "wombles" in some bizarre attempt to get me, my brother and my sister to wear them. ("The wombles" was a big tv show for kids at the time). I never realised that there was any other name for them until the tender age of 22 when I called one a womble infront of a large group of friends... Seven years later, I still haven't heard the end of it

When I was little, I remember watching Scooby-Doo reruns and hearing the laugh track. I thought those were people actually watching the show as I was, and I would always laugh loudly and out of place for the other people to hear.
