I used to belief that people before doesn't have colors, I used to think that only black and white colors exist before. Because most of B/W movies i watched were old movies.

When I was little I thought that since old TV shows were black and white, that's what life really looked like back then. Sometime in the late 60s, everything in life gradually transitioned from black and white to color.

When i was about 5 my mum thought it would be funny to tell me that the world used to be black and white. What did i know i wasn't back there then and everyone told me about black and white T.V's. It took me aqbout a year to figure out she was lying but she still tortures me about it to this day!

actually, it was my son. when he was 6 or seven..he was a big fan of Nick at Nite..they reran old black and white t.v. shows. " I Love Lucy" " The Honeymooners" etc.... he would always ask me what year they were made....then color reruns ( "Batman', Partidge Family) began to broadcast in color.. He assumed that color wasn't invented intil 1960..not only for T.V. but for the whole world...

When I was little my grandmother used to show me pictures of her when she was little and stuff like that and of corse they were all black and white so I used to think the whole world was black and white not the film on the cameras.

My friend believed in 4th grade thought that old shows were in black in white because there was no color in the world yet. I asked her how color was discovered and she still doesn't know. :)

When I was younger, I used to believe that because old television shows were broadcast in black and white, that the world had not yet discovered color.

When I was very young, I used to believe that before they invented color tv the world was black and white - and once they invented it things magically turned to color. I think I got that idea after seeing the wizard of oz.

My mom has a black and white picture of her and her two sisters in halloween costumes. I remember asking when she turned color. She looked confused, and I asked, "Then why are you not colored?" I was probably about six.

I used to believe that in the "olden days," the whole world was in black and white...until they came out with the Wizard of Oz, and everything became colorful.

When I was little I used to think the world had been in black and white up to a certain time (I guess because I had seen a lot of black and white movies growing up). I figured the world probably became colorized around 1950 something. ;)

Due to black and white films, I used to think that the world really had been black and white until the early 20th century!
