I used to think that the reason there was only black and white tv was because the whole world was only black and white, that color in the world was new.

Before kindergarden, I too thought that a long time ago the world was black and white. But that colours were invented one by one. All due to my kindergarden teacher saying "when I was little EVERYTHING was red!"...she was talking about firetrucks, and hats, and hydrants. I always wondered what colour came after red.

i used to think that the world used to be in black and white since all of the pictures from that time weren't in color.. for instance i thought that my grandparents were black and white and lived in black and white until later on when they turned to color

I used to think that when they made black & white movies, that everything in the world was actually really black and white until color was "discovered". Man, was I dumb!

I remember watching TV as a child, and sometimes I would see older things filmed in black and white. This lead me to think that long ago, there simply was no color in the world.

When my daughter was about 6 or 7 years old she was asking about some event in the past, presumedly during the time when I was young. She said, " You know when everything was black and white."
I realized that her perception of the world was based on old black and white photos and movies of the period when I was young.

When I was little and watched black and white tv, I wondered when the world changed to color. I was thinking around the 60's, although the world was pretty grainy in those days. It never occurred to me that tv would show things in black and white.

Up until I was 8, I thought that all things in the universe were devoid of color until sometime in the mid to late 60's. Then my parents bought a color TV.

Like many others, I used to think that the world used to be black and white. I didn't question why dinosaurs were in colour, though.

I used to believe that because some older films and tv programmes were black & white, up to a certain point in time, the whole world was actually black & white and colour was only invented recently. How people managed to colour the sky used to baffle me, but i assumed they must have sprayed deodorant into the air until it turned blue!!

When I was a child, my mother and I were discussing television and she told me that they had invented color (t.v.'s} when she was a child. I mistook this and spent the next couple of years believing that everything (all of life) was black in white and that color had been invented. I never did figure out how to mix black and white to get blue.
