When I was very little and would see black & white photo's of people. I was led to believe that the olden days were actually in black and white.

I used to believe that the reason old movies are in black and white is because the world used to be in black and white.

I watched my favorite cartoon betty boop which was in black and white and I remember my mother saying that the tape was old so I came to the conclusion that one day (I dont know when) the world changed from black and white to color so thats why tom and jerry and me and my friends where in color. ODD HUH:)

When I was a kid, my father's funds were very limited raising 3 kids on his own, so all our TV's for a long time were black and white. I Used to think all people were black and white, not the flesh color we obviously are. I used to walk around asking why aren't you black and white?

I used to think that the whole world was all black and white in the old days, just like in the movies, and the Wizard of Oz was a major breathrough.

I was born right about when color film came along. Looking at my parents and older brothers and sister pictures, I thought that color happened when I was born. I felt so sorry for all of the people born before me, even their dogs were black and white.

I used to think that the world was all black and white, just because of all the photos and videos! (I'm 14) I used to think I was like a Sim character from the computer game, being moved around by some big person with a mouse! (maybe this is God with a rodent pet, you never know!)

I grew up in the 70's so of course we had color tv, but when I would watch a black and white tv show I thought that EVERYTHING was black and white back then.

When I was younger I used to think that the world was in black and white and wondered how Grandpa and Grandma felt when colour was introduced...

I used to believe in the olden days there was no color in the world, only black and white. I believed this because I saw old pictures that were only in black and white and also because old t.v. shows were only in black and white. I concluded during those time frames, color did not exist in the world.

I used to believe that the world was in all black and white back in "The good ol' days" and that the world came to colour when the wizard of oz figured out how to add colour to movies they did it for real life as well.

I used to believe that people in that past really were black and white...like in those black and white pictures, you know?
I thought that the color portraits must have been science fiction back then.

As old pictures of my grandma and mum were in black and white, when I was like 3 I used to believe that the world was colourless once.

I used to believe that a long, long time ago, everything in the world was white and black and one day, God decided to color everything, and rainbows were his crayons.

That's what happens when you make your kids watch old black and white films.

I once believed that the world was jus black and white, from watching on a black and white tv. And some-where’s near the high 80's someone invented colour and painted the whole world, and then we had all these wacky colours around us. We so silly....

i was born in the 80's and was around my grandparents alot. we used to watch alot of black and white TV, so i thought the world at one point was black and white. and through some mystical power turned into color one day. i believed this till i was about 5 or 6.

When I was a little kid I saw a black and white show, and I asked my mom why there was no color. She said "Because they didn't have color back in those days." I assumed that she meant that everything right down to trees and grass was a shade of gray! I belevied this for probably over a year then I got that issue cleared up :)
