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 believe that Worzel Gummidge really did remove his head, and that he was some kind of undead monster. It really used to scare me.
i used to believe that the actress Ellen Degeneres was actually Ellen The Generous. i used to wonder what she had done to get a name like that, maybe helping sick kids...?
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...
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 was about eight, my parents were coming to bed at night and found me sitting by the front door, fully dressed. They asked me why I was there and not in bed, I said I was waiting for Superted and Spotty to come and get me because they needed my help with a mission. I honestly believed that!
I used to believe when the Transformers song went "More than meets the eye", that those were the names of two of the Transformer characters -- Morethan and The Eye -- and that the show would be about the showdown when Morethan met The Eye.
When there was no TV show scheduled for a specific time the listings would say, "To Be Announced." I always thought that this was the name of a show and for some reason assumed is was a religious program so I always avoided it.
I lived in Peru, South America, until I was 4 years old. Until that time I watched North American TV shows dubbed into Spanish. I always thought it was so strange that the people on TV could talk one way and move their lips a different way. I tried doing it...never could.
When puppeteer Shari Lewis died, I asked if this meant her show Lamb Chop's Play-Along would be broadcast in black and white from now on. I was assured that the stars being dead wasn't the reason old shows were in black and white.
I believed that BP petrol stations were owned and run by the same people who did Blue Peter (because of the initials)
I used to think that 'black comedy' was show like Family Matters and The Cosby Show.
While watching the opening credits of The A Team (back in the eighties) I asked my Dad if he knew what the 'T' stood for in Mr. T's name. He casually told me it was Thatcher as Mr. T was Margret Thatcher's son. I didn't pick up on that one for nearly twenty years!
my mum told me that it was prince charles who was in the Bungle costume on Rainbow.
I used to think all the kids on the Cosby Show were Bill Cosby's actual children. My wife set me straight when I was about 35. I'm so dumb sometimes.
Around the age of the 8 or 9 I noticed that Barbara Eden in the "I Dream of Jeannie" repeats was pretty darn sexy. I was convinced that a) this was just an accident of the production rather than intentional and b) I was the ONLY PERSON WHO NOTICED THIS. I believed that for 6 years.
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.
When I was young...I used to believe that when my mom turned the T.V. off on my favorite show....it would be there were I left off at.
My mom would watch world news tonight with Peter Jennings, and he would speak with a giant image of earth behind him. This lead me to the logical conclusion that Peter Jennings was God, and he was telling us everything that was happening because, of course, god is Omniscient.
A lot of people have said they believed when Mister Rogers said stuff to the camera that he was talking to them personally. I didn't believe that--I thought he was talking to the cameraman!! I always liked how he was so nice to the cameraman.
