while watching the news with my father when i was around 6,the newsman said that "guerillas had shot some soldiers in the war in the african congo".for a long time after i used to believe that the gorilla ape was going around the congo with guns killing people.it was a great relief to finally realise my mix up.

I was a kid during Vietnam and kept hearing about a guerilla war. I had no idea what a guerilla was, and a rough idea of war from tuig-of-war, and the card game War.

Then Planet of the Apes came out. I was petrified.

The song goes Video killed the radio star, before we had TV the spoken word was magic.
And in a childs mind anything was possible.
After the war the radio was the magic box in the corner, among the best to open the imagination was a program called " Saturday night Theatre ".
In one play based on the war they spoke of the"Guerrlla" attacks.
It was quite some time after it was explained to me that they were not infact "Gorrila's"...

When I was about 3 years old, I would watch Planet of the Apes movies with my Uncle *a lot*.....
... Then one day I was terribly confused and horrified by the News reporting "Gorilla" warfare. I became terrified to go outside because I believed that it was REAL because the news reported it.

I used to think that the Nicaraguans had trained gorillas to fight for them since it was always on the news about "guerilla warfare". It was the mid 80's and I was 10 or so. I had nightmares about killer gorillas for months.

I can remember listening to the news when I was a kid and they would talk about gorilla fighting or gorilla warfare. I could never understand why the gorillas didnt' get along!

When I was about 6 or 7, durring the Grenada conflict, I was shocked to learn about guerilla warfare from the TV news. I didnt think that gorillas could even use guns, and I cried for hours thinking that we were shooting at the defenseless apes.

When I was a kid and I heard on the news about geurilla action is some countries I used to think those countries were being overrun by gorillas. I used to have nightmares about them coming to my country.

When I was a child I would watch the evening television news with my parents. Whenever the newspeople would mention "Gorilla fighters", I remember thinking "Wow, those things are SMART!"

I was 10-12 years old in the mid-1960's during the Vietnam War and could not for the life of me figure out why the Viet Cong gorillas (guerillas) would shoot at American soldiers.

I thought guerilla warfare was "gorilla warfare" in which they trained special army gorillas to fight using camoflage techniques to keep from being seen. Each country had its own army gorillas and when people wanted to be sneaky and not be in a real war, they would send out the secret gorilla troops to hide in the forests and shoot each other.

Whoever had the most gorillas left at the end of the battle won.

I used to believe that when the term guerilla warfare was mentioned, it was apes, monkeys, and gorillas fighting it out! They'd be out there, with rifles, guns etc. I thought it so odd....

When I was young we would hear about the Gorillas fighting in South America against the armies on the radio and I always picture in my head armies of gorillas with helmets and guns fighting armies of people.

When I was a youngster they first started talking about Gorillas in the jungle of Malasia fighting with machine guns!! I thought they really meant Gorillas not Guerrillas

When I was young (in the 1970s) there seemed to be a lot of talk on the News about 'guerilla warfare' (you can see what's coming next ...) I use to be flabbergasted that these Gorillas were clever enough to run around with machine guns and capture people - though I could never quite understand what their 'cause' was...
