That the world was black and white before the invention of colour television. It didn't occur to me that technology increased, i thought the world just evolved

I used to believe that colour was a recent invention and that when my parents were younger, everything was black and white because the only pictures I'd seen of the past were black and white. I thought that someone had invented colour a few years previously!

When I was little I believed that someone invented color. You know that's how T.V. got to change from black and white. So I asked my mother, "Who invented color, he must have been really smart?" I haven't been slapped so hard since.

When I was younger I used to think that the world was in black and white and wondered how Grandpa and Grandma felt when colour was introduced...

When I was young, my parents watched a lot of TV shows and movies that were black & white. I assumed that when my parents were little, the world was in black and white.

One day I asked my dad what day the world got color, and how he celebrated. He was very confused, but had a good laugh after I explained myself.

I remember watching TV as a child, and sometimes I would see older things filmed in black and white. This lead me to think that long ago, there simply was no color in the world.

When I was about 10, colour tv was just being introduced in Australia. I remember looking at old photos of my dad, (in black and white) and asking him if colour hadn't been invented when he was my age. Of course, he let me believe the whole world was black and white

when I was about 3 whenever we watched 50's tv shows in black and white... I thought that the reason it was black and white was because they had no color back then

You know those old black and white photos? Well, when I was little I thought the entire universe had no color at all untill around the time I was born. Like the sky was white and the ground was grey. Haha kind of dumb I know.

I used to believe that black and white movies were made before color was invented. I thought eveything was in black and white untill color was discovered in the 60's

I used to believe (no doubt due to my love of The Wizard of Oz) that the world used to be in black and white and just eventually turned to color. That is why older movies and tv were all in black and white and why poor Dorothy had such a shock at entering a place already turned to color.

I used to believe that before a certain time, the whole world was black and white, not just the tvs. I was always baffled about how they got the sky blue, and thought they must have sprayed heaps of spray paint up in the air.

I used to think that when my parents and grandparents were children the world was black and white because those were the only pictures I ever saw of them. I remember wondering when the world turned to color, but I never asked....

My parents are both big fans of classic movies. Naturally as a child I watched them, too, but I couldn't figure out why they were all in black and white. My dad explained that they made all those movies (and TV shows) before they invented color.

Seemed reasonable to me, so I told all my friends. We also thought that's where the racial terms "black" and "white" came from. Oh, and "B.C" (as in 400 B.C.) meant "Before Color".

Oh, the embarassment when I discovered the truth...

I once asked my grandmother "What was it like to live in black and white? What about crayons?" She was confused at first, but then realized as I asked a black and white episode of I Love Lucy was on the tv. :)

I thought you could paint in color in the past, but everything else was in black and white except that. :) This lasted till I was 5.

My grandmother has a lot of black and white pictures in her house and so I believed that the world used to be black & white. We still say in our house: "Long ago when the world was black & white." Because of what I sayed when my gran told me a story of when she was small.
