I used to believe the world before I was born was literally black and white and all the people were gray. This was based on all the black and white TV shows they showed when I came home after school like Leave it to Beaver, The Munsters, etc.

I used to think that the world was black and white before color T.V. was invented. Imagine my surprise when I saw color photos of my parents when they were young kids!

Not a belief of mine, but something I got my son to believe when he was about 5.

We were watching the Wizard of Oz, and when we got to the part where the world changes from black&white (OK, sepia) to full glorious Technicolor, my son became a little confused by this.

Now, I'm a bit of a prankster (which is a bit like saying water is a bit wet) and I do so like a good story, so conditions were perfect for a wee spot of invention just then.

I told him what happened was the world used to be in black and white, but, right during the filming of the movie, the world changed to color.

My son was very interested in numbers, so he asked when the film was made. I told him "1938".

He thought for a second, and then said, "Didn't you say grandpa was born in 1933 ? That makes him the same age as me when the world changed to color."

After praising him for his awesome subtraction skills, I said "Yep. Grandpa was the one who told me all about it. You should ask him the next time we visit."

As luck would have it, my brother's daughter had a christening about a month or two later at which the entire extended family gathered.

Yes. Yes, he did.

"So, Grandpa, what was it like when the world changed from black and white to color when you were my age ?"

Needless to say, Grandpa was a tad confused, but #1 son forged on ahead, explaining how "well, Grandpa, when you were 5, that was 1938 because Dad says you were born in 1933, the world changed from black and white to color, and there's proof because the movie the Wizard of Oz was made in 1938, and you can see it happen right there. Dad explained it to me."

Oh, dear, I did have rather a time explaining that one away. #1 son thought it was pretty funny, but Dad was less amused.

When I was little I used to think that the world used to be black and white from watching old black and white TV shows! I once asked my Mom when the world started to turn colors and she set me straight.

When I was younger, I used to think that the whole world was in black and white until about the 70's (because almost everything I saw on TV about back then was in black and white)

I used to believe that the world was truly black and white in the 1950s, because all the old television shows were. I also believed that my grandmother's ancient television set was tuned to the year 1955-ish. We were only there on Sunday afternoons when the only things on television were old black and white movies.

Because of black and white photos and films, I used to believe that in the 'olden days', they didn't have colour because it wasn't invented yet.

I used to think that the world was black and white because that's all you ever saw of it in pictures and whatnot. One day i asked my dad "when did the world become color?" he laughed..

I was born in the 80s, and when I was young I thought that when tv shows/movies were in black & white that was how the whole world was, and colors weren't invented until the 60s, when color tvs appeared.

I used to believe that the world used to be black and white in the olden days as all the pictures of the olden days were on the tv in black and white. I was born in the age of colour tv and it didn't occur to me that they didn't have colour pictures.
