I use to beleive, when I was young, that the world didn't get its color until after I was born. Everything on TV was black and white before I was born.

I used to believe in the old days that the world was black and white and in the 80's it turned to color.

top belief!

Like a lot of previous entries, I also thought that the worlds was once black and white, and when The Wizard of Oz came out, thats when it turned to color.

My grandmother always showed me pictures of her and her friends/family growing up. Of course the pictures were black and white. I used to think that when my grandmother was in the pictures, that the only colors were black,white, and grey. I thought that the other colors were something that they came out with recently.

I used to think the world was black and white a long time ago - because I saw it on television. I asked my father "what was the world like before there was color?" He looked back at me, puzzled, until he figured out what I meant.

The first time I left the United States and went to another continent, I imagined the world would be like that, but it turned out that I was wrong - sensation was the same here and over there.

Since all the old TV shows and movies were in Black and white....I used to think the world used to be black and white and turned into color sometime recently.

I used to believe that the world used to be in black and white (that was, of course, after seeing old black and white movies!)

having watched a bunch of black and white movies,and seen a bunch of black and white pictures,whitch were obviously old.I concluded that in the old days every thing was only black and white,and those films and pictures were made before color was invented. Color was invented somewhere in the 70's

I used to believe that in the old days it was all sepia or black and white, because thats how all the pictures were.

When I was little my grandpa and I would watch a lot of black and white horror movies ( which I didn't find too scary compared to say, Aliens) and I never understood why old movies where in Black & White. So I asked my grandpa if it was weird living back then when there was no color.

It didn't occure to me that it was just the film, and not everything was black and white a long time ago! After all, all the photos and movies weren't in color.

When I was really little (about 3, 4, or 5) my mum watched old television shows such as "Bewitched", "Dick van Dyke", "Mr. Ed", "I Love Lucy" and others.
And all of those programs from the past were all in black-and-white, so I just thought that back then, the world used to be in black-and-white instead of colour.

When i was a kid and was shown black and white photo's of my mum and dad and grandparents etc, i used to think that the world was in black and white too!!
And the world had only come into colour recently!!!
They did laugh when i asked them what the world was like "before colour"!!!

Fom watching black and white movies, I decided that the real world must have been black and white before someone discovered colour. I thought it must have been boring in those days, and was thankful to be growing up in the 80s!
