I once thought that the world used to be black-and-white, before color was invented. This was evidenced by old black-and-white movies. My dad set me straight when he pointed out that dinosaurs were in color.

I used to believe that the advent of color movies / television coincided with the discovery of color itself. I thought that the real world was colorless prior to the 1930s.

When I was young and found out about black and white televisions, for years after I believed that the world was actually black and white and then turned colour. I found out about those TV's at primary school and just found out the truth when I was 14...oh the shame Im 18 now and ashamed to admit my mistake, hehe

When I was 5 I used to watch a lot of Nick at Night with all the old My Three Sons, Dick Van Dike, Mister Ed etc. I asked her why they were in black and white and she told me that everything was black and white back then. I there for believed the WHOLE world was in lived in black and white until color tv came out.

I used to believe that people only saw in black and white until the 1950's because that's when color came to television.

I used to believe that the world was greyscale up until the late 40s. All the movies from before then were black & white (I had seen alot of them, my parents are big marx bros fans)

then one day I asked my dad "Back when the world was black & white, what color was the ocean?"
It was about a year or so before i realized why he was laughing so hard.

I used to believe that the whole world was black and white, and then one day, the world became multicolored, just like in the wizard of oz.

When I saw black&white pictures of people in the past and stuffes, I thought the whole world was that color, and that the movie 'The Wizard of Oz' brought the world to color.

Like in one Calvin and Hobbes comic, my dad told me that the pictures that are black and white are in color, but the WORLD was black and white. A few years later, I went out to a film shop. I was shocked to see black-and-white film there.

Well, I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who thought the whole world was in black and white because all the pictures I'd seen of my parents were in B&W. =)

When i was little and saw black and white photos, i thought that the world had no colour 'back then' and that colour was invented and then added to everything.

Since there were black and white movies in the past, I believed the whole world used to be in black and white.

When I was little and would look at the old black and white photos of my parents and grandparents, I used to believe that the world was all black and white until I was born.

When I was young and I would watch an old black and white TV show, I thought that it was in black and white because back then the world was only black and white. I didn't know that it had anything to do with the film.
