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.

I used to think that the past was black in white since I saw alot of old films that had no color in them. Made perfect sense.

when i was little i used to think that black and white shows on tv existed in a time before they invented color. i thought everyone was running around in black and white like in the movie pleasantville.

I used to believe that everything was black and white in the old days and everyone looked the same because every picture that I saw of people in the 18th century had the same facial features and hair cuts.I also believed that rocks on mountains were parts from this guy my dad made up called "the rock man".I dont plan on telling my children these things

This one came from a friend of mine - he was youngster, sat with his Grandmother. She was showing him a very old photo album full of black and white photo's. He interrupted her and asked with complete sincerity - "Nan, when did the world go from black and white to colour?"

I used to believe that in the days of black and white films, LIFE itself was actually in black and white... and that color movies didn't come around until life evolved enough to produce color!

As a child I thought that black and white movies were black and white because the world was black and white. this, to me, explained why black people were called black people, when all the ones i had seen were actually brown.
i thought this until i was about eleven when i asked my dad if he was excited when color was "invented." at first he assumed I meant just movies, but then i began to ask him things like "how did you know how to pick your favorite ice cream?" actually, he never mentioned it to anybody after he explained. he probably decided that everyone thought i was crazy enough without that.

I was a child in the early 80s and would watch old reruns on nick and nite. Even though some of those shows were running just 20 years earlier, i was convinced that everyone who came out on a black and white show was already dead.

When I was young, my parents watched a lot of TV shows and movies that were black & white. I assumed that when my parents were little, the world was in black and white.

One day I asked my dad what day the world got color, and how he celebrated. He was very confused, but had a good laugh after I explained myself.

When I used to watched old TV shows in black and white, I actually used to think life was in black and white in the 'olden days'. My dad had to tell me that it was just the cameras that were black and white, and not the whole world.

Always after I had watched a black and white tv show, I thought the world was black and white back when the show was made. My dad supported me in this, telling me how happy he was the day colors were introduced.

when i was a little boy, around 5ish, i asked my grandmother if she was born in the black and white days. she looked puzzled for a moment. she soon realized that i thought that before the Wizard of Oz's colorful transformation scene that everyone had to live their lives in dreary monochromatic tones . . . not just in movie but in actual life. all the footage or photos i saw were in black and white so naturally i thought before 1939 things just lacked colour.

i used to believe that old black and white photos were black and white because the world wasn't in color back then.

For years when I was younger I used to think the world used to be Black and White - cos my dad used to watch black and white films all the time! Only when my parents explained to me that it was simply the film that whole idea collapsed and I realised how silly it was!

I used to love looking at old photographs as a child and, somehow, in my mind I got the idea that the world was literally gray (black and white). Then, my mother mentioned something about a certain sweater being a particular color and my worldview came crashing down.

when i was younger, i thought that everything in the olden days was in black and white, due to the fact that everything i saw on television from then was in black and white. i didn't find out until was almost 10 that that was not the case.
