I'm glad to see that there are several others who also believed that the world only became colourful during the 1960s!

When I was younger I used to think that the world had just recently been in color, i thought before everything was black and white. I even asked my social teacher a while ago, "What Year did the world, get colorfied?"

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.

I grew up in the 70's so of course we had color tv, but when I would watch a black and white tv show I thought that EVERYTHING was black and white back then.

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. :)

After watching old black and white movies, I thought that the real world was black and white, as well. I thought that colors were invented about 40 years ago.

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.

I used to believe that the reason old movies are in black and white is because the world used to be in black and white.

When I was a kid, about 3 or 4 in the early 1970's, I asked my mom when things turned colorful as I thought in the "olden times" everything was black and white just like the black & white shows I watched on TV. Talk about Pleasantville!!!

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.

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