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!

When I'd see a black and white movie on TV, I'd always wonder when people started being "in color."

I used to believe that in the past, the world was in black and white, or at least sepia-toned, like the old movies and photos in Life magazine. Only recently, when the History Channel has been showing documentary footage of World War II in color, have I realized that I used to think this. Hitler and his cronies ought to have gray skin, don't you think?

I used to believe: that when TV was black and white, it was because the world was black and white. so when TV went colour, I assumed it was because the world had switched too.

I used to believe that the whole world was black and white, since all the photos were. Then one day they miraculously turned to colour. I couldn' explain why but they did.

the most nostalgic moments of life were when my friends and i played all evening on the lawn, and the sun was setting, creating an orange luminescence in the sky. i temporarily believed that the orange sky was the result of our high levels of fun. it was quite difficult to achieve.

My brother used to think that when movies were black and white, people were actually black and white and only wore black and white clothing.

I used to be told, whilst watching TV, that before 1960, or whenever, there was no colour. I used to think that before 1960, ther was no colour at all. Trees were grey. Water was grey. People were black or white or grey.

My girlfriend used to believe that everthing used to really be black and white like in the old TV shows.

When I was young I used to believe that the world used to be balck and white because of the old films I saw! I went up to my mum one day and asked her how the world was coloured in. She loves to remind me of this story, even though I'm 22 year old now.

I used to believe that up until the 1960's the whole world was in black and white and that color was invented in the 60's. This was due to all the black and white photos my parents had of their lives growing up. They didn't help me by saying how amazing it was when color was invented!

I used to think that everything in 'the olden days' was black and white. Curse those old Hollywood films. Harold Lloyd has a lot to answer films.

when i was younger my mum told me that everything was black and white in 'her' day. I thought she meant that EVERYTHING was black and white (not just on TV!) and that colour was a new thing.

I used to believe that the world and everything in it used to be black and white. This is because all the old movies and TV were black and white.
